Question about putting DD-WRT on the WRT54GL [UPDATE: nevermind]

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 

I want to put DD-WRT on my WRT54GL. It has firmware 4.30.11 and I learned that it supports 4MB firmware images. So is it safe to assume that I can just flash to the "Standard Generic" version of DD-WRT without having to start with the "Mini" version?

 

Also, what would  happen if I just flashed it without doing the 30/30/30 reset?

 

 

 

Update: Well, I had it working. It was nice. However, every single time I went to display my list of MAC filters, it crashed. Everything else worked just fine except for that, but it's just about the most important part to me. So, I'm back to the Linksys firmware and it's just fine. So, nevermind. I quit.

If the standard generic is below 4mb it should be good. I did it without the 30/30/30 usually never really had a problem, but I know most people would say otherwise.

Yeah, it's 3.6 MB. They can't make them over 4 MB because that's the maximum capacity.

 

Anyway, yeah, my gut instinct is telling me to just do it. It flashed from version 1.0 to 4.30.11 without any problem, so it seems to me that the 30/30/30 is just a paranoid method or something.

 

Edit: are you saying that you did it to the WRT54GL?

Yeah I used the standard generic on my friends wrt54gl, no problem. They're pretty easy to debrick if it does mess up in any way. But from my experience the 30/30/30 was not needed.

Wow. Well then I think that when DD-WRT's site comes back up, I'll download it and flash it!

I've done quite a few routers! Is this your first time using DD-WRT?
