MOST of the Ralink 3052 based routers with 4MB / 32MB config should work with DD-WRT
BUT - you need to make sure you have SERIAL access to the router just in case
You also want to have a firmware image from the manufacturer that you can restore
JUST IN CASE DD-WRT does not work on your router and you have to recover
Unless the Devs have a unit in front of them that they can test, its trial & error on your part _________________ Soylent Green Is People !

There is a serial port on the board of HW550-3G. I was able to flashed it with dd-wrt firmware but the flatform of the firmware was for Buffalo WHR-G300N. The firmware was copied from 'madaleno'. I was also able and managed to revert it back to stock firmware. Actually dd-wrt was flashed in my router in hope to recover my bricked router when I accidentaly switched of the power while upgrading stock firmware. I used RS232 to TTL serial. but USB to TTL will work too.
