Confirmation of what reset at boot does, per BrainSlayer

Belkin F5D7230-4 can *NOT* be bricked unless you do "mtd -r erase pmon". IF flashing goes wrong, just TFTP to it on boot. If you erase pmon (mtd0) then you're pretty much fucked.

Do NOT load OpenWRT after loading DD-WRT on it unless you are advanced user, OpenWRT fucks up your MAC adresses, resetting it to some zeroes and a 9, making DD-WRT recognise it as Siemens SE505 and it will never work properly again under DD-WRT. I don't know if this is always the case, just don't load the fucking OpenWRT which sucks cock anyway.
