so i flashed my C1 sucessfully and it seems to be working great. Couple of things that need to be cleaned up: the power light only comes on orange when booting, then goes out and never comes back on. The WAN light just lights up at boot and never does anything else regardless of traffic, boot status etc.
The wireless light just blinks slowly in a random pattern after boot regardless of whether or not it has a client connected or boot status etc etc.

I picked up two of these this weekend and slapped ddwrt (first install ever) on there and I'm finding that I'm stuck at g speeds instead of n.
The models are both D-Link DIR-615-E3's
I see a few people on this thread have posted about being stuck at G speeds as well and I'm curious if anyone has found a release where N works or if there are some settings I should fool around with.
I read something about issues with TKIP so for the hell of it I tried AES & AES+TKIP and was able to hit 144mbps. It's a 300mbps router but I don't really need that bandwidth in my house so I'll sit happily with 100+

After flashing my DIR-615-E3, the wireless LED no longer is on.
Is this normal? I really liked that pretty flashing light! It gave me such a sense of happiness and security...LOL!
But seriously, dd-wrt is running great - surely we can get that little light to come back on!?! What must I do, anyone?
Thanks in advance.
I have seen a number of posts regarding this while searching for my fix to the link speeds issues I was having on my setup. From what I can tell this is something that probably isn't going to be fixed over other potential candidates since it is what some would call an unproblem. Your best bet is to try a few different releases to see if any of them revive that led. Either that or mount the router somewhere you can't see it

Oh No....I have learned if dd-wrt is working (15778 now) that I should be contented and happy....playing with other releases only exponentially drives up the BRICK factor. I have that MAJIC-BRICK-MAKER touch!
1) 30/30/30 Note: firewall/security turned off, factory reset, etc.
2) uploaded f/w v24 preSP2 [Beta] Build: 14896 "D-Link DIR-615 rev C1 Firmware: Special image for initial flashing"
3) waited 15 min for it to rebuild the nvram Note: got connection timeout page (in browser) after upload
4) 30/30/30 Note: briefly saw the "uploading" page with progress meter before going back to connection timeout page
5) waited for another 5-7 min
6) wasn't able to get back to the web admin page even after doing a couple of soft/hard reboot
7) ping test results:
192.168.0.1 : Destination host unreachable (and sometimes Request timed out)
192.168.1.1 : transmit failed. General failure
8) later found this page [ http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/D-Link_DIR-615_rev_C ] and realized that I haven't done the hex editing step
Note: see comment above re peacock

I have my Dir-615 C2 flashed with DD-wrt TEW-632brp firmware from other download database succesfully. Previously with dd-wrt Dir-615 C1 firmware, having problem with unknown disconnection and my android phone can't connect. Right now I'm testing the connections looks pretty good..instant connection with my droid. Thank you.
