Hi, so I bought a brand new D-LINK DIR 880L router for full price last October, got DD-WRT working on it but it was an unstable build, and so my router has been bricked since last October, I tried to recover it throughout many months (soldering pins and using mobxterm) but to no avail: the router is dead.

I've decided to just throw it away and I'm looking to buy an upgraded, better TP-Link AC3150 router new, and as such would like anyone's advice on how to approach flashing DD-WRT on it. I have to make sure it is working fine with DD-WRT before purchasing as it is an expensive router (I've already lost the DIR-880L which I paid an expensive price and so I don't want that to happen again to this new router). Someone please help!

If this is true - https://liliputing.com/2016/03/tp-link-routers-sold-us-wont-support-dd-wrt-openwrt.html - I wouldn't buy one of their routers on principle alone.

Here is how I unbricked my 880l - http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=1078934#1078934
