Hi Guys,
I am trying to load DD-WRT firmware & install transmission on my Asus RT-N13U router.
Updating the DD-WRT firmware is quite straight forward. However installing the transmission client on the router is a bit difficult task.
I did a bit of googling and found few articles. But they are all quite old.

It would be of great help if you can help me with the steps for installing the latest transmission client on to my Asus RT-N13U router.

Thank you,

Regards,
Akshara

Apart from topic:

Also i am planning to buy a Hard disk about 200GB solely for Downloading Purposes - connected to N13U B1.
Are there any serious consequences if i run the machine 24X7 ? Any sure damage to Disk or router ? :-?

Solution
1) OPen my computer properties and check what is your Workgroup Name

Default is = WORKGROUP -update dd-wrt accordingly


Next /opt is not the partition you need to mount, mount /mnt


once you done both

from windows

Window key+R ( to open run prompt) type //AsusRouter

/mnt partition will open




ALSO you are running very old version of DD-WRT

try DD-WRT v24-sp2 (05/27/13) std
(SVN revision 21676) and reconfig DD-WRT

Brother if i mount it in /mnt , then transmission stops working :mad:
But if i mount opt then i can access under networks and also i can get transmission working ..

But however after running the client for about 2hours continuously , then transmission stops working and i get this error ... Attached pic..

Why this suddenly stops working ? Any idea ? What should i do ?

This is the guide i followed.

I am also planning to upgrade the firmware as suggested by you.
Please link me to a guide which you recommended:D

Sorry for hijacking this thread but my query is related to Asus RT-N13U B1 only.
There are a lot of third-party firmwares available which support NTFS/FAT32 and SWAP. Does official DD-WRT firmware support NTFS/FAT32 file-systems by default? Is it possible to plug-in any FAT32 formatted USB stick/drive and use it as storage location for Transmission.

Didnt test Latest edition but 1 edition before latest doesnt support Swap and many previous versions , But i find no issue

What about NTFS/FAT32 filesystems? Does DD-WRT official firmware support those out of box or we have to download fuse and other packages on every restart?

A related post here [refer " ALT " post]
I don't know whether this is a DD WRT issue or bsnl issue.But before i flashed dd wrt it was fine.
That is why i want to try flashing the stock Firmware .

Yes i have also attempted to Flash the stock by ASUS Firmware resue utility - But it says it cant find the device and it is not on recovery mode

This is what i Did
-unplugged the modem ( only connecting wifi power cable and LAN cable for Router to PC )
-pressed restore button for 30 sec when router was on and continued it for another 30 sec while removing power cable and then putting the cable back while not taking hand from restore button and pressing it for another 30 seconds .. ( by doing this i get the power button blink at slower frequency - I guess i entered the recovery mode in router )
- But i cant connect via Firmware recovery utility

Should i also change some LAN settings in PC ??
below is my router setup
settings.jpg


UPDATE : I successfully have restored the ASUS firmware after great struggle by God's grace .It is smooth till now .. Will let you know after working with it :)

That is 3 years old :(

RMA it

kARTechnologyForum member also had similar incident , He did flipkart replacement and no issues with replacement

BSNL people just came in the evening and solved it.Some wire connection problem in their side it seems .. Now working fine for the past 4 hours .

I would really appreciate if you could link me to a good thread showing how to install transmission on DD WRT ..
I would like to try transmission again .

If you could get some spare time , please do the process for me through Team viewer :p
