I have had the Asus RT-N16 for about a year now. Installed the k26USb version on it and it has worked fine, until recently. I have to reboot the router at least once a day. The network still works but I have no internet access. The modem was replaced about a year ago by Time Warner. I downloaded the newest Tomato version and was wondering if I have to install it the same way that I previously did, using the Asus utility? I hope that this improves things otherwise I will start my search anew. Thanks.

Your NVRAM has probably become corrupted, maybe due to power outages or storms. The best thing to do is erase NVRAM and reconfigure.
There are several variants of Tomato to choose from, with quite a few nice features. They are all based on TomatoUSB code, which hasn't itself been updated for many months now. Take a look at the forum threads to find out what they are and where to get them.
Upgrade from the web GUI if you have access, otherwise the firmware restoration tool is fine. Don't forget to check the "erase nvram after flashing" box and reconfigure your router manually afterwards.
