Guess I'll give it a shot. Whats the worst that can happen, it's still under warranty.
u can turn it into a paperweight
Heh, I think it's too light to be useful as a paperweight.
After my initial hubris, I've decided against trying to do it, at least for now. I'm using it currently as an access point in my hotel room, since the hotel's wifi antenna is weak, and unencrypted. After reading the wiki article on how to configure dd-wrt as an AP (http://dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Wireless_Access_Point) It appears I'd have to write a script for the AP to get it's IP via DHCP. Asus' firmware made this setup pretty easy.
As much as I'd like to have a common interface for all my routers (I've got an Asus WL500gP as well), if this is the case, I don't want to go through the hassle. I tried to brainstorm what else I'd like to do with the thing that dd-wrt could offer, and I couldn't come up with anything.
Although, now that I think about it, I think the WAN port's IP may be static, since to administrate it, I've got to go to 192.168.1.220, and my IP address thats handed to me by the hotel is not in the 192.168 range. If that's the case, I assume setting up DD-WRT as an AP wouldn't require that startup script. But now, we're getting beyond the scope of my knowlege of these things.
Has started dd-wrt v24 on 330ge. But the laptop does not find wi-fi.Network card Atheros AR5007EG. Why?
There are for whom works dd-wrt on 330ge. I from Russia, also write by means of the translator. Sorry if something not clearly.
