Can seem to find an answer by searching so thought id ask here if that's ok.
Got an old wrt54gsv5.1, going to start using it again as a repeater. Its running an old ddrwt build so thought might as well upgrade to newer presp2 13064.
One question, is it going to be a pain to upgrade like flashing it with ddwrt was? Custom image with mac address added or can I go straight to upgrading from firmware upgrade page in ddwrt? Thanks for any info

It will be if you use that build. Please read the four broadcom forum announcements carefully, especially the peacock announcement. You do not need to reflash a custom image like you did with initial installation. If you are using build 12548, I suggest you just leave the build alone and don't try to upgrade. _________________ SIG:
