*I was never able to get the larger "Mega" file to work, at least not initially so I recommend the file above.
To enable 5ghz I had to do the "Clear NVRAM" Option before it was shown.
2.) Or if you don't need 5ghz (most devices do not support it and cannot see it) I prefer DD-WRT:
Latest versions here:
dd-wrt upgrade problems when you have more than one unit that you have accessed before from the same browser.
Clear cache and cookies
#when upgrading make sure you choose reset to firmware defaults or you may have problems getting web interface after like me!
I could not even reboot the connection would reset on me until I cleared cache and cookies it seems it was inteferring from another dd-wrt that was on the same
After upgrading only telnet was up (no port 80 web interface):
Connected to 192.168.1.1.

#this did not fix it so I held the reinitialize button on the bottom of the unit for 10seconds
#this did fix it with the reset/reinitialize (I should have chose reset to defaults when upgrading)
I still have this problem even when choosing reset to firmware defaults
