Re: OpenWRT vs DD-WRT

The suggestion sounds well and indeed the pleasure and fun are coming from building and tinkering with it. However, since I don't have a raspberry pi this means more dough put into this project. It's a pity I have to drop this but it seems that my v2.2 board is weird, it doesn't resemble other v2.2....

Re: OpenWRT vs DD-WRT

It's OK, I just wanted to share my experience and maybe others have bumped into the same thing. If I will not find the answer in a fashionable time frame then I will have to drop this project. Buying a router + additional components doesn't quite make sense since for the same money I can buy a stand...

Re: OpenWRT vs DD-WRT

I got again on it but no luck what-so-ever. I understand the mpd errors and I agree with them, as in I have to have a sound card connected to make it work. But, unfortunately, I haven't been able to make the USB work; I looked all-ver (I guess) and for my WRT54G v2.2 it seems that the USB pins are d...

Re: OpenWRT vs DD-WRT

Finally it worked! At least the installation... in the end I had to use everything from this forum, the .trx and the MightyOhm's package selection, otherwise I've ran out of space in any combination. I didn't enable wireless yet, I want to see it working wired first and then to play with wireless. T...

Re: OpenWRT vs DD-WRT

What I am trying to achieve is indeed option 2; option 1 is quite a nonsense given the project but I haven't realized that until I put on paper. However, if I go for option 2, will the bridge with LAN work with psk2 encryption? As far as I understood it works only with WEP and I don't want to change...

Re: OpenWRT vs DD-WRT

In the end, after countless times of bricking the router, I managed to flash the .trx in the tutorial and install all the packages. However, now I have 2 problems: Problem #1. Network configuration (the Internet "comes" via another Belkin router which is connected with the provider. This Belkin is w...

Re: OpenWRT vs DD-WRT

I have a WRT54G v2.2 and as far as I understood Attitude Adjustment is pretty big for its flash; it's more for the new generations which have a bigger (than 4MB) flash. After I flashed AA it worked extremely slow and I've spent (again) almost 2 days to get it working again. I finally reverted to DDW...

Re: OpenWRT vs DD-WRT

Of course I made a mistake and flashed Attitude Adjustment! My "Windows" brain said "go ahead, it's the latest version, it should be the best, go ahead". It took me an evening and a morning to finally flash it with Kamikaze. Now it's working fine (as a router) but I receive errors when I try install...

Re: OpenWRT vs DD-WRT

Hi, thanks for the response. Since I have only 4MB on the router then it means I don't have enough room to move around so it seems I will have to go with OpenWRT. The thing is that the instructions were not too clear for me in terms of which distribution to install and where to get it from. I will h...

OpenWRT vs DD-WRT

Hi, Did anyone try DD-WRT instead of OpenWRT? I had an old bricked Linksys and I managed to revive last night and I flashed it with DD-WRT. At a glance, it has a nice web interface but it seems that the name of the files differs. I started with the configuration according to the tutorial and from th...
