No, I have no problems with port forwarding and port range forwarding.
Works well and I can reach my NAS and FTP-Server from the Internet.
Also the DHCP Reservation is no problem here. I set static IP's for all of my network devices, without any problem
By the way:
I don't have to downgrade my firmware first. The switch to DD-WRT worked well for me, with the latest Linksys Firmware (188.8.131.52876) installed
Ok thanks, I'll check tonight. In the mean while, how can I know who is responsible for making this hack happen and how can I financially support the time he or she put into this accomplishment?

After several reboots with dd-wrt firmware has the original Linksys firmware instaled (itself). How is it possible?? Suddenly Linksys firmware has opened in internet browser. In all internet browsers.
The linksys is one of the first router that has 2 firmware images, the second image is used if the first image doesn't fully boot.
Thus if dd-wrt fails to boot the second image which is still linksys will be booted.
Did you clear nvram after installing dd-wrt?
No I didn't clear nvram after istalling dd-wrt. What will happen with clearing nvram?
I installed dd-wrt to test if 5GHz band is working. With stock firmware stopped working and the router reboots every time. It is same for now with dd-wrt also. Does clearing nvram has anything with it?
If nothing helps then I will return it under warranty.
Is there any log file to check, why is rebooting after 5GHz bans is enabled.
Posted: Thu Oct 17, 2013 0:35 Post subject: Wireless speed after upgrade to DD-WRT
first of all thank you very much for working on DD-WRT for the EA6500.
I just finished the upgrade and it went smooth. everything seemed to be working fine until i setup my wireless networks... i will not get the same speeds as i was getting with the original Linksys firmware (see the attached pics). Am I missing something?
Shouldn't i be getting much higher transfer rates?
Can someone post some recommended settings for the DD-WRT firmware for the EA6500?
I was trying to figure out VLANs, going through the tutorials. I found out by unplugging and re-plugging the cables that the port numbers didn't make sense even in light of the documentation. I wound up with what appeared to be a pass through, my workstation suddenly had my public IP address. I reverted my settings, rebooted the router and it came back up with linksys firmware.
I guess I'm done with this for awhile. Maybe I'll go buy a pfSense appliance.
