Links of Interest[]


NOTE: During configuration or flashing a device, the only that should be hooked to the device is the computer and power.


NOTE: Do Not flash micro this router.
NOTE: Requires K2.6, Do not flash anything else.

  1. Read the Peacock Announcement.
  2. Download dd-wrt.v24-15279_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini_e1000.bin. If you wish to experiment with a newer build, you should read the "build thread" for any build you are considering putting on your router, before flashing a newer build, (as discussed in the peacock announcement).
  3. Set a static IP on your computer to Subnet mask should be
  4. Connect the lan cable from your computer to a LAN port of your router. Make sure your router is plugged in. Nothing should be connected to your computer or the router except the lan cable between them.
  5. Ensure you have a physical ethernet connection to your router, and disable your wireless adapter, antivirus/firewall protection, and any software that makes strong use of your network (BitTorrent, Streaming Audio/Video, etc).
  6. Perform a hard 30/30/30 reset.
  7. Navigate to in your web browser of choice.
  8. At the Linksys Management Mode screen, do not give the reboot command. You will use this page to upgrade your firmware.
  9. Browse to the firmware you downloaded and click Upload.
  10. Do not touch anything. The page will tell you that the upgrade was successful and the router is now rebooting. Your router may take upwards of a couple minutes to reboot. Watch the lights... once the wireless and power indicators are on steadily for several seconds, your router is fully rebooted and you can click "Continue" in your browser window.
  11. If the DD-WRT password change page displays, your upgrade has been successful, and you must now perform another hard 30/30/30. This time, when you navigate to, click "Reboot" and wait for the router to come online again so you can configure it.

If the DD-WRT password change page does not display, your page request times out, or you can't ping, make sure both wireless and power lights are on steadily first, then do a hard power cycle (unplug the power from the router--do not do a 30/30/30 reset). Wait a few seconds and plug the power back into the router. Wait until both wireless and power lights are on steadily, then navigate to in your browser of choice again. If the DD-WRT password change page displays, your upgrade has been successful, and you must now perform another hard 30/30/30. This time, when you navigate to, click "Reboot" and wait for the router to come online again so you can configure it.

You can also flash the same firmware of TomatoUSB as described for WRT160N_v3.0


  1. Use a wired connection only. (disable wireless to be in the safe side)
  2. Make sure you disable firewall in Windows.
  3. Disable the virus guard.
Let's Begin![]
  1. Download and extract the K26-MIPSR2 Tomato USB Firmware. Mini, STD or VPN version is up to you. With this router you can only use certain builds. It's flash size is only 4MB. (Get them Here)
  2. Connect your computer's using network cable to one of the LAN ports of the Asus router. Manually set your computer IP address (in the TCP/IP properties of the LAN connection) to, network mask
  3. Upgrade to [[]]dd-wrt first.
  4. After upgrade, go to the router by typing, after setting the username and password go to administration then firmware upgrade. Click browse and find the TomatoUSB firmware file. Click upgrade.
  5. After upgrading is complete open your browser, Do a 30/30/30 reset, and then go to the router by typing, when prompted for a username and password enter "root" and "admin". Go to Administration > Configuration > Restore Default Configuration, select "Erase all data in NVRAM memory (thorough)" and click OK. To insure that the processor has time to complete addressing all NVRAM variables it's best to wait about 5 minutes before making any changes.

You are now ready to start using your E1000 v1 router with Tomato.


If dd-wrt is already on the router follow these instructions. If stock firmware is on the router follow the flashing instructions.

  1. Check for recommended builds here first.
  2. Set your computer to a static IP of (or to whatever subnet the router is on) Disable all firewalls and security. Disable wireless on your computer and only have the router connected to the flashing computer by the ethernet cable between the two.
  3. Hard reset or 30/30/30 (If the router supports it, if not, reset to defults in the GUI) prior to flashing. Wait. Check for password page on re-login and change password.
  4. Flash firmware. You can use the webgui except if you have a belkin router. (For belkin use tftp.exe to flash)
  5. least three minutes. Lights should return to normal. See important2, below. Failing to wait is how most people brick their routers.
  6. Do a power cycle of the router. (Unplug the cord, count to 30 and plug it back in.)
  7. Wait for the lights to return to normal usually about 2 minutes.
  8. Hard reset or 30/30/30 again (If the router supports it, if not, reset to defults in the GUI). Wait. Check for the password page and re-login to change the password. Then you can reconfigure your settings manually.
  9. Once configured set your computer back to autoIP and autoDNS.

Important1: This Hard reset or 30/30/30 works fine for Asus router, but you do have to power cycle after the reset.

Important2: After you flash the firmware, and before you do the hard reset, the router will be building some nvram settings. YOU MUST WAIT FOR THIS TO FINISH PRIOR TO DOING ANYTHING WITH THE ROUTER INCLUDING A HARD RESET. Usually, you can tell when this process is completed by the WAN light coming on, but it does take several minutes. Go have a beer. There are starting to be more and more people who BRICK their routers by not waiting until the nvram is rebuilt, PRIOR to doing a hard reset. YOU NEED TO WAIT!


  1. Read the peacock announcement found here:
  2. Do a hard 30/30/30 on the router according to note 1 of the peacock announcement (30/30/30)
  3. Set a static IP on your computer to Subnet mask should be
  4. Connect the lan cable from your computer to a LAN port of your router. Make sure your router is plugged in. Nothing should be connected to your computer or the router except the lan cable between them. Turn your firewall and any wireless computer connections OFF.
  5. Power cycle the router (uplug the power from the router for 30 seconds and then plug it back in)
  6. Open your browser to by putting that in the browser address window of your browser. You should open the linksys webgui and NOT a page that says Management Mode. If you see management mode, power cycle the router again.
  7. Enter your username and password
  8. Go to administration and firmware upgrade
  9. Navigate to the folder that you are using, and select FW_E1000_1.0.01.007_US_20100415.bin.
  10. Hit upgrade
  11. When you get a success, wait FIVE FULL minutes.
  12. When you can again access the Linksys webgui using a browser at, do another hard 30/30/30 on the router.
  13. Reset your computer ethernet connection to auto IP and auto DNS

JTAG Recovery[]


As most know.. The wrt160n v3 & the E1000 v1 are identical in regards to hardware.

As most know, Linksys has disabled the jtag circuit in these routers by leaving out smt components (just like the 610 v2 & E3000)

I'll link this in another thread where a dd-wrt member needs jtag for this router.

I traced the jtag header to the missing components. What needs to be done, is to bridge the pads on the pcb. There are 5 pads that need to be bridged.

Four can be found on the bottom of the pcb, and one on the top.

They are marked R64, R65, R66, R67, & R68.

R67 is on the top side of the pcb, and the rest on the bottom.

Attached are pics showing the pads that need to be bridged as well as the jtag output doing a -probeonly.

The ribbon cable you will see in one of the pics, is connected to a serial header I hot glued to the side of the pcb. This router I purchased to assist the devs (Eko) in porting dd-wrt to this router. Cuz we bricked it many times, pogo pins to the serial pads would not do. I needed something I could connect to many times.
