finally a better router
Frys had a pretty good firmware however the lack up updates was unsettling. Today I installed DD-WRT for the first time on a router, took a few hours of finding documentation and trying several things. I started with http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/FR-300RTR currected the path to a newer release, but couldn't install it with Chrome on Win7, tried with a Mac, still no joy, strange thing the 100% couldn't be accived on the upload, been trying also to correct that wiki, yet I can't login to it. Finally corrected the path to ftp://dd-wrt.com/others/eko/BrainSlayer-V24-preSP2/2010/07-16-10-r14815/dlink-dir615e1/dir615e1-factory-to-ddwrt-firmware.bin http://192.168.0.1/index.asp and got it running after some configuration I had my devices working but the VoIP was poor so I thought, 3 year old firmware, and found the latest downloaded it installed and it works better then before :) I have my first DD-WRT router, too bad I bought a WiFi repeater already for $60 this works even better if made to do that. And I got it to work, I can, however most times I set it up it doesn't work right, I wonder if there is a better way without the menus.
