Looking for bricks and spare routers to expand my collection. (not interested in G spec models)

I brought this router today. This router is built by Westell
FCC ID: CH87500XX-07
I am surprised that this router is based on Broadcom chips with 16M DDR- memory and 2Mx2=4M flash (Samsung). See picture attached. Thanks!
I tried to tftp the mini build with no luck. Webpage upgrade requires *.upg files. I change the name from *.bin to *.upg. The system will not allow.
This is a modem-router combo and is not supported by dd-wrt, dd-wrt is router firmware only - no modem firmware. _________________ You don’t really own a device until you can open it up and tear it apart
Just because a device has broadcom doesn't mean you can just flash dd-wrt onto it. It is far more complex than that. If the router isn't listed as supported, you can try, but you can also brick it easily. Most recently supported devices take a lot of hard work, in spite of the chipsets. Even supported devices have to be flashed properly, with correct builds, for that router.
So, bottom line, if it isn't supported you likely cannot flash it with dd-wrt. See note 16 of the peacock announcement.
