DD-WRT alternative?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a WRT310N V2 router which has had the WIP status on dd-wrt.com for at least a year or so.

I want to have this router act as a Wireless card as where my PC's are is very poor reception so I want to stick this router out further and join my computers via Ethernet cable so I can connect.

Is there another way of doing this other than DD-WRT or some way to bribe the programmers to get it to work for this model faster

Thanks for any help

Wait what are you trying to do? Bridge the connection of 2 computers? if you already have a router, you don't need another one, just get a switch if possible

So you want to plug your pcs into the back of the router and then have the rounter access a wireless connection? Sounds like you are trying to setup a bridge of some sort. If the router firmware doesn't have that kind of option by default you can try to use openwrt inseted of dd-wrt. I know that with that you can setup as brige mode. I
t's not very beginner friendly though.Good luck.

Yea I'm trying to bridge, my school doesn't have any ethernet ports in this building as its 100 years old, so everything is wireless. But where I am the wireless signal is crap. But my router is 802.11n and can be placed closer to the door, I'll try that out. I don't really have anything to lose.
