Hi, I am running dd-wrt build r24461 for my Belkin F5D8235-4 v2 and it performs quite well. NAS and Samba are also running very well. However it doesn't has miniDLNA so my PS3 can't see the NAS drive. Is there a build that includes miniDLNA or is there a way to add miniDLNA?

Can you log in SSH, type ipk and push TAB?
Or you gonna continue "solving" the problem with distant guessing?
Never mind, I think I have bricked my router by trying to flash openwrt to it. A bad move! The blue router LED is flashing and I can't ping the router. However ipscan can detect 192.168.1.1. Not sure if I should try the serial method.
Edit: Ordered a PL2303HX USB to Serial (TTL) cable and waiting for it to arrive. Already opened the unit and found J2, the serial port. Will post if there is any break through.
I have unbricked my router and flashed stock firmware to the router. I then successfully flashed back dd-wrt to the router. Hope future dd-wrt build for F5D8235-4 v2 support optware. Info on how I unbrick my router can be found on this post: http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=141190&start=30

After digging further, I have successfully added opkg to my router by extracting dd-wrt, add opkg and rebuild it. Info can be found on www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Development. To add opkg, I have to remove wifidog and Sputnik as the r24461 bin is pretty full already. Use ipkg_install.sh to add opkg ipk. The opkg ipk for F5D8235-4 v2 can be found on openwrt. Make sure you choose the right chip set which is ramips. I have confirmed that opkg is working by installing nano and run it on my router. As a warning, when you are playing with the firmware, it is very easy to brick the F5D8235 and be prepared to use the serial console very often.
