Hello dd-wrt community,

I'm looking into replacing the firmware on my Asus RT-AC67U from the original asus firmware to dd-wrt. But sadly it wasn't in the routers database.

I've looked around and there are very few differences with the RT-AC68U (which is in the router database):
- RT-AC67U has Newer revision main processor
- RT-AC67U has non-detachable antenna as opposed to detachable antenna on the RT-AC68U
- RT-AC67U do not come with stand for it to stand up.

Does someone here on the forum knows if it's possible to flash this model?

Huh, that's interesting since yesterday I happened to notice that the router detection code uses a AC67U config for a whole bunch of models including the AC67U, so it appears to be supported:
Code:
if (nvram_match("productid", "RT-AC67U")) {
setRouter("Asus RT-AC67U");
return ROUTER_ASUS_AC67U; }

if (nvram_match("odmpid", "RT-AC68R")) {
setRouter("Asus RT-AC68R");
return ROUTER_ASUS_AC67U; }

if (nvram_match("odmpid", "RT-AC1900P")) {
setRouter("Asus RT-AC1900P");
return ROUTER_ASUS_AC67U; }

if (nvram_match("odmpid", "RT-AC68A")) {
setRouter("Asus RT-AC68A");
return ROUTER_ASUS_AC67U; }

if (nvram_match("model", "RT-AC1200G+")) {
setRouter("Asus RT-AC1200G+");
return ROUTER_ASUS_AC1200; }

if (nvram_match("productid", "RT-AC68U") && nvram_match("boardrev", "0x1100")) {
setRouter("Asus RT-AC68U");
return ROUTER_ASUS_AC67U; }

if (nvram_match("productid", "RT-AC68U") && nvram_match("boardrev", "0x1103") && nvram_match("boardtype", "0x0665")) {
setRouter("Asus RT-AC68U B1");
return ROUTER_ASUS_AC67U; }

if (nvram_match("productid", "RT-AC68U") && nvram_match("boardrev", "0x1103")) {
setRouter("Asus RT-AC68U C1");
return ROUTER_ASUS_AC67U; }

if (nvram_match("model", "RT-AC68U") && nvram_match("boardrev", "0x1100")) {
setRouter("Asus RT-AC68U");
return ROUTER_ASUS_AC67U; }

if (nvram_match("model", "RT-AC68U") && nvram_match("boardrev", "0x1500")) {
setRouter("Asus RT-AC68U");
return ROUTER_ASUS_AC67U; }

if (nvram_match("model", "RT-AC68U") && nvram_match("boardrev", "0x1103") && nvram_match("boardtype", "0x0665")) {
setRouter("Asus RT-AC68U B1");
return ROUTER_ASUS_AC67U; }

if (nvram_match("model", "RT-AC68U") && nvram_match("boardrev", "0x1103")) {
setRouter("Asus RT-AC68U C1");
return ROUTER_ASUS_AC67U;
[...]
if (boardnum != 24 && nvram_match("boardtype", "0x0646")
&& nvram_match("boardrev", "0x1100")
&& nvram_match("gpio7", "wps_button")) {
setRouter("Asus RT-AC68U");
return ROUTER_ASUS_AC67U;

Support was added in r21018, but it's not in Supported Devices. Does it have an FCC ID?

So it appears you just use the AC68U file, but you appear be the guinea pig for it... good luck! Cool Embarassed I'll update the Supported Devices, assuming it works.

If 43028 doesn't work for initial flash, try 21061 first.

It actually used to have it's own build, until getting lumped in with the 68u et al. E.g.:
https://download1.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/betas/2013/03-25-2013-r21061/asus-rt-ac67u/

The old Kong builds showed it too:

WikiDevi-cat.RU redirects to RT-68U when you click on the RT-67U link.

Interesting, tech info depot lists it separately:

That's 'cuz Dark_Shadow probably wanted them separated.

Thanks for you answer! I will try to flash coming wednesday. I will let you know if it works.

Is it possible to completely brick my device when using the file for the AC68U? (assuming I follow all the install steps correctly). I really don't want to break it.
