Hi,
I just got a new Asus RT-AC66U B1 and tried to flash dd-wrt on it but without success .

1 - I put router in recovery mode by power on with reset pressed till power led goes on and off

2 - go to 192.168.1.1

3 - cleared nvram

4 - upload - dd-wrt-40559-Asus_RT-AC66U.trx firmware

5 - got upload completed, system is going to reboot

and from here doesn t work anymore

I have ping with it but if i try open web page get This site can t be reached.

What I did wrong and how can I fix it ?

Thank you very much

Wrong FW. You flashed the one for the MIPSEL A1 version.

Your model is a renamed RT-AC68U and that is the file you must use.

Use recovery mode.

Press and hold WPS Button, power on and release WPS.
