Is there a way to restore Linksys EA6900 back to Factory firmware, from DD-WRT v24-sp2 (02/04/15) std.
everything ive tried has failed, I have even tried updating to newer DD-wrt version, but they don't seem to work either. it always goes back to v24 sp2, after rebooting.
this is for anyone else in my pickle.
I was able to restore Linksys Firmware.
First follow the directions for installing DD-WRT in the forums pertaining to EA6900, read all 57 pages. because there are hidden clues throughout.
do the cfedit stuff. the FTP,and the Telnet stuff.
However the only thing to change is the firmware Telnet. Do this first with the DD-WRT firmware as listed in the forum group, Then come back later and do it again with the Linksys firmware.

DD-WRT is a fine project, offers lots of features, but I just couldn't get my speed up. with Gigabit service, I want the speed I pay for. I tried DD-wrt, because my router wasn't giving me high enough speeds. yet DD-Wrt, reduced those speeds even further by half.
