I had the same problem with ssh, but after a hard reset the problem was solved...

Yes,

That has been a ton of progress on the broadcom/Cisco E series routers... There was a complete roll to support a number of the new devices.. As far as USB 5ghz on the E2500/E3200 that is still be worked on. There was problems with the old driver causing it to lock up on 5ghz lower channels like 36/48 ect.. I have talked to EKO and are looking at updating to a newer broadcom driver.

So to be clear, todays roll, will allow you to run dd-wrt on the E2500 and E3200, you just will not have 5ghz support today.. It is being worked on, and has not been forgotten.

5ghz support issue, only affects the E2500/E3200.
This roll adds new DD-WRT Support for the following models:

Cisco E900 -nv64k 8mb Flash
Cisco E1200 V 1. -nv64k 4mb Flash
Cisco E1200 V 2. -nv64k 8mb Flash
Cisco E1500 v.1 -nv64k 8mb Flash
Cisco E1550 v.1 -nv60k 16mb Flash

Cisco E2500 v.1 -nv60k 8mb Flash -NO 5GHZ-

I should have my EA2700 on Wednesday, and will work on cracking that baby open!!!

First time virgin e3200 flashed from stock to
dd-wrt.v24-18946_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini-e3200.bin

STEPS:
1. factory defaults on stock Cisco firmware
2. flash dd-wrt firmware
3. after 5-6 minutes did a 30/30/30 - I don't know why? it worked before Razz
4. power cycle - just in case Razz

works fine...

Have one question.. on my HTC mobile WiFi analyzer shows same TX power even I set the power to 1mw in advanced wireless options?

Flashed e1200 v1 straight from factory firmware (1.0.03), waited 10 minutes and did a power cycle. Everything seems to be working.

Flashing from factory firmware is a lot nicer than what i had to do to my other router to get dd-wrt Very Happy Excellent work

Eko can maybe do a clarification about the protection mechanism against flashing wrong type of build.

I take it that routers with 32KB nvram do not understand nv60k or nv64k and will reject upgrade attempts of those.
I assume that an nv60k router does not accet a 32KB nvram build nor does it accept an 64KB nvram build , and that an nv64k router has the same protection against 32KB and 60KB nvram builds.

If my assumption is right then there is no way to brick these routers with the wrong nvram type build as long as you use the web gui for updates.

Eko?


Was about to report that this protection doesn't work, then realized… uploading the wrong mega build to an E2000 isn't stopped by the new firmware until you HAVE the new firmware.

Sad to report 15962 didn't. Anyone with a JTAG setup want a cheap E2000 paperweight?

Successfully upgraded a WRT160Nv3, however, and repeater bridge mode has stopped giving me the psychotic behavior that had plagued me in the past. Hooray! The 310n and E3000 are next, hopefully without the late-night fog brain that helped me brick the E2000.

The new version only adds Cisco routers support? And how about the other routers and general bugs/issues in the http://svn.dd-wrt.com:8000/timeline ? Sorry if it's a dumb question!

Unclear if this is an issue, but at 3.84MB, dd-wrt.v24-18946_NEWD_mini_usb_ftp.bin seems not to fit on an Asus WL-520GU (at 3.06MB, dd-wrt.v24-18946_NEWD_mini_usb.bin does, of course).

But in looking at the wiki comparing Eko's Mini USB FTP and BS's USB Generic, I see that they're identical save for one additional feature in USB Generic. Yet, dd-wrt.v24_usb_generic.bin in its latest build (18777) is only 3.25MB and so fits....

I have noticed this in the std-nokaid-usb of this build as well, the mini-usb-ftp is actually bigger than the std-nokaid-usb.

Long time ago since a flashed my router the last time. Successfully updated my E2000 from r15506 to r18946. Seems to be absolutely stable for now, will report if something strange occurs.

The only thing I recognized is, that the WLAN LED is on when rebooting the router despite WLAN is set to be turned off (WLAN is indeed off, but LED is on).

Thanks for the new build dev's!!

Repeater mode for newer K26 builds is still broken...

Eko...will this ever be fixed...or should this mode be removed from all K26 builds.

Looking for more test units (newer models) for the project...got a brick?...PM me to make a hardware donation. (USA) A donation is not a debricking service....it is a way to "Give back" to the dd-wrt project.

I do NOT provide personal assistance through chat or phone....so please don't ask.

mega working fine on E4200 coming from 18777 mega by BS.
Only problem was with sshd daemon that didn't like nvram saved keys and/or options, had to unset them all, commit, reboot, reactivate functions to make it work again. This never happened with previous upgrades. Anyway now everything seems up and running again. Will let you know about WiFi performances possibly.

Just as a heads up, I do seem to be experiencing issues with VLANS, USB Drives don't read the normal Optware partition scheme.
