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?

I am trying to follow the instruction as shown on this thread:

http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=177532&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

to add miniDLNA to my Belkin F5D8235 but it seems that r24461 for my router doesn't support ipkg. Is there other way to install opkg without using ipkg? Any help is appreciated!

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.
