Linksys e1700 is a Mediatek MT7620A Soc based router so i didn't know where to post this question...

in router database i can find e1700

after i downloaded factory-to-ddwrt.bin

i go to Firmware Upgrade section to upgrade

when the upgrade process to 30% it will show a message

"Incorrect firmware file! Please reboot first and try again!"

then i go to ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2015/01-04-2015-r25760/linksys_e1700/ to download the beta version (factory-to-ddwrt.bin)

still got the same issue

what should i do?

sorry for my bad english

First, did you follow the wiki?

http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Linksys_E2500

Second, are you aware (at least according to the wiki) that dd-wrt doesn't support the router's 5GHz radio?

Have you download any driver for your device? If no, maybe you can try download driver first to see whether it is a driver problem.

First, you can download driver through device manager.
Step 1. Click Start, then right-click "My Computer" (or "Computer") and click "Manage".

Step 2. In the Computer Management window, on the left, click "Device Manager".

Step 3. Click the "+" sign in front of Mouse and other pointing devices.

Step 4. Right-click the device listed below Mouse and other pointing devices and select Uninstall.

Step 5. Click OK to confirm removal of the device.

Step 6. Restart the system. Windows will detect and automatically install the driver.

If it does not help, the easiest way for you is to use a drivers download utility to download drivers automatically. http://tiny.cc/3cwerx. Download and install it, then it will automatically scan for your system and recommend suitable drivers for you. You can download or update whichever driver you need.

I think the Problem ist that the E1700 Router is shipped with Linksys Firmware 1.0.01.
And with this Firmware it is impossible to install dd-wrt.
