How to setup nordvpn on your router with dd-wrt
My sister gave me this EA7300, which she had purchased on woot a few years ago but never used. The Linksys default gui is a catastrophe. I’ve spent 20 minutes looking for the default password (due to a well-known vulnerability), but I can’t seem to find it.
 It’s difficult to do it by proxy without direct access to the computer, which would include opening the case (not always easy/ feasible without damaging the case), soldering for the serial console (possibly even removing the flash chip for external reading/ writing), and a serious risk of permanently damaging the device.
 The positive timeline assumes a hypothetical contributor who knows what needs to be done but isn’t doing it on a regular basis and must broaden their expertise when working on it, as well as a device that isn’t especially difficult (all hardware support’should’ be available). Obviously, this will vary greatly depending on said hypothetical developer’s unique knowledge and experience, and can easily range from a rainy weekend to “not in a million years.”
DD-WRT is a Linux-based firmware project that was created to improve wireless router performance and extend functionality. This firmware is open-source, which means that anybody can look at and modify the code. This helps users to configure the firmware on their own.
When this firmware is mounted on a wireless router, it eliminates limitations and adds functionality. Firmware improvements, reliability updates, performance boosts, and the ability to use a VPN are only a few of the advantages.
In general, locating Linksys routers that are DD-WRT compatible takes a lot of effort. The DD-WRT firmware’s compatibility is primarily determined by the hardware. Compatibility is affected by the chipset’s make and model, as well as the capacity of the flash memory.
Purchasers of the WRT3200ACM searching for a DD-WRT compatible router have recently experienced significant firmware flashing issues. In order to resolve the problem, the FlashRouter Team contacted Linksys directly and discovered that the WRT3200ACM models with serial numbers beginning with 19811 are currently incompatible with DD-WRT.
First and foremost, the list below is a work in progress that has not been updated in a long time; similarly, the router database that directed you to this section has not been updated in a long time. The builds recommended in this list, or in the router database, can be awful for your router hardware and cause a slew of problems.
If your hardware isn’t mentioned below, it’s most likely not supported yet, and you’re risking bricking it. To see if support can be added in the future, look at Known incompatible devices or Router detection.
See this page for more information. The minimum available Build Version for all devices is shown in the table below. Read the device’s wiki and forums, as well as new build threads, to flash later versions. There are a lot of bad builds out there.
Many users would be satisfied with these configurations, but those who want to install additional software packages on their router can need 8MB or more flash memory. On devices with 4MB flash memory, do not flash a Mega build.
Which one is the best firmware for my wireless router
I’m sick of the EA-7300’s IoT nightmare, packet leaking, privacy invasion, and poor security. When I purchased it, I was hoping that the firmware would be revised to correct the various design flaws. This hasn’t happened in the least. Is there a particular firmware that can be flashed onto this computer to make it usable? Thank you so much.
