Good to know mehulved, are you using N speed well? Could you share to us your settings(short tutorial)? Thats way to follow.
The problem was that I was using TKIP. And as per the wiki page
"You MUST use WPA2 authentication with AES encryption only, or use no security at all if you wish to achieve N rates. Anything else is against the N spec and typically results in the client falling back to G rates."
So, setting it to N only meant I have no fallback on G. And if I set it to mixed mode, it was falling back on G. Once I changed encryption from TKIP to AES, I could connect using wireless N.
Ohh crap! So, we need to have only N or G wireless devices never NG mixed mode! Btw, did you tested with mixed mode? This could work NG? I only have one N device (xbox 360) so I can't do much tests!
No. We can have mixed mode. Because, I had encryption set as TKIP, I wasn't able to authenticate using wireless N. So, if I set to N only, I couldn't connect. If I set to NG Mixed or Mixed mode it would fall back on G because it didn't succeed at connecting to N.
But, after correctly setting encrytion to AES, I am able to connect using wireless N even if I set the modes to Mixed or NG Mixed.
As long as you use proper settings for N you'll have no problem connecting wireless N devices in Mixed mode.

Today I tried to add an external antenna on this great device and the best thing, it's work great!! I took off the antenna of my old netbook, and connect in this onboard, the onboard connectors are female so I had to mod it. This is the picture.
Posted: Mon May 23, 2011 6:13 Post subject: PPTP passthrough
I've recently bought ASUS RT-NU/B1, and was disappointed by the quality of stock firmware.
I've decided to flash dd-wrt from router database v17027.
All went well and ddwrt is much superior to stock firmware.
But I had some troubles with pptp connection on wan.
Every time router gets disconnected from pptp session and reconnects again, I have to manually set PPTP passthrough to enable (even if web gui says it enable) for every client on lan to be able to use internet on those clients.
When I try to reboot router, PPTP passthrough (and other passthrough: IPSEC,L2TP) gets disabled.
This is a confirmed bug; I saw this in another thread in Russian subforums.
I’ve also tried setting up DMZ for one lan client but for some reason after router reboot pptp on would not even connect to server.
Will there be any fix for this?
Are there any other hacks I may try?
any news on a full working version that works with client bridge and repeater bridge as well ?
I'm using mine as Repeater Bridge (build 16994), Wifi NG-Mixed together with my ISP Router/Modem.
I'm still testing it (before putting it on the entry hall so Wifi coverage is better at living room), but near the ISP router I can always get 60+ Mbps down (65.3 Mbps Downrate, test at speedtest.net).
I got some sort of lock up maybe almost a week ago, I reseted the RT-N13U B1, reconfigured it and it has been working rock solid since that (I turn it off about 8 hours a day - during night).
