TomatoUSB (Shibby) support for ASUS RT-AC68U Dual-band Wireless AC1900 Gigabit Router is something that I’ve been waiting for quite some time. The Tomato-ARM Team (Shibby, roadkill, Victek) released a public beta for the RT-AC68U on 24 March 2014.
With the TomatoUSB (Shibby) beta, it is time for my to migrate from my ASUS RT-AC66U. In this article, I’ve documented my process of flashing TomatoUSB for RT-AC68U. Previously, I’ve written TomatoUSB (Shibby) flashing guide for ASUS RT-N66U and ASUS RT-AC66U. Do take a look at those guides if you intend to flash TomatoUSB for those devices.
Below are some of the TomatoUSB firmware features that I had found useful:
- Comprehensive QoS (Quality of Service) controls
- VPN Tunnelling support (OpenVPN Server / Client, PPTP Server / Client)
- Captive Portal (based on NoCatSplash)
- VLAN Support
- Multiple LAN support
- Bandwidth Limiter based on IP/MAC
Warning: Flashing third party firmware will void your warranty. I will not be held responsible for anything that goes wrong.
