Linksys WRT54G/GS (any version) flashing notes
For upgrading from the original Linksys firmware, please use the generic mini version (dd-wrt.vXX_mini_generic.bin) and flash it from the web GUI interface. After this first flashing it is possible to change to any other distribution. Flashing via the web GUI interface: always use the included 'generic' binaries. The other Linksys router specific binaries are only for tftp upgrades.
Motorola WR850G flashing notes
Just use the dd-wrt.v23_mini_moto.bin for initial flashing of the motorola device using the boot wait state.
WARNING-Never clear the nvram by the mtd utility-WARNING
The mtd utility will erase the nvram. This will delete your hardware MAC adresses which aren't stored in the CFE like in other routers. DD-WRT itself prevents this if a Motorola router is detected. The mtd command line utility can brick your router!
Siemens Gigaset SE505 Flashing notes
Flashing the Siemens Gigaset SE505: You must use the dd-wrt.v23_mini_generic.bin with boot tftp on 192.168.2.1. The Siemens default settings do not fit the Linksys/dd-wrt settings. You must check your configuration details after flashing.
Initially we wrote this modification to use a Linksys WRT54G/GS with our wireless lan as a budget-priced replacement for our professional priced Lancom and Orinocco access points. So what's missing? First of all we are using radius authentication with a central account management for user authentication. There was already a radius application available for OpenWRT. OpenWRT is only user friendly for a computer professional with linux knowledge. So we integrated small enhancements, our wrt-radauth modifications, in the alchemy software.
Radius server timeouts are no longer a problem. The client is authenticated just up to the point. The server says really 'no'. A connection timeout hasn't any influence to the workflow. Additionally, we found it really helpfull to use an external filesystem inside the WRT. So our choice was a samba client, useable on any computer platform. You easilly mount a windows network share into the wrt and its possible to start a script after mounting the device. Still our work was far from over. The server/client watch function is still under development. We already implemented the RFlow traffic monitoring and management tool into the web interface. This utility was already built inside DD-WRT but you had to start it manually. It was still unfinished, the daemon mode didn't work. So we finished it and now its working inside DD-WRT and you can configure via the administration window.
