Dd-wrt client bridge setup
Hello, my name is Keith, and this is my very first entry… I’m a retired Marine who now works as a senior Unix/Linux/Windows (barf) sysadmin, network engineer, and ethical hacker in the Bay Area. I enjoy what I do and aspire to learn new things on a regular basis. Normally, I can work things out on my own with a little reading and googling, but I’m stumped on this one. Since I purchased the RT-N66U in March, it has performed flawlessly. I get like 3 blocks of broadcast, and I can set up QOS and guest networks (which is unfortunate because the interface has been dumbed down… I was planning on flashing back to default DD-WRT, but it crashed on me before I could do so). So, here we go… What happens is that I have the modem linked to the router’s WAN port. Then one Cat6 was plugged into LAN port 1 and another into LAN port t2. When I plug it into the network, only one computer will be assigned an IP address… APIPPA IP addresses will be assigned to the other or others. I tried a 30-30-30 power reset, but it didn’t seem to work… The system did not enter recovery mode. While attempting DHCP requests, I wire-sharked… [Continue reading]
[howto] setup dd-wrt repeater bridge (updated
Hello, lleachii. Thanks for your time and responses; I won’t bother with upnp because my sister won’t need it, which is great; however, I don’t see any wireless settings; I’m not sure if I need to enable it with a putty tool or anything.
I have network dropping down and interfaces that I clicked and wan and wan6 are red, can’t see wireless name or anything, and it’s not showing up on my laptop when wireless is checked, but I have a secret network popping up on my laptop now, not sure if that’s it.
When it comes to wireless, the radios do transmit on it. However, in Dumb AP mode, I had trouble getting my wireless devices to link on the 5GHz band. It may have been a result of some of my preferences. When it was in ‘gateway’ mode, I never checked the wireless. On my WNDR3400 v2, I finally upgraded to LEDE 17.01.4 and now use it solely as a switch for my 10/100 computers.
How to install dd-wrt firmware onto almost any router
I thought it was time to upgrade to 5 GHz, a WiFi band that is less widely used and has a harder time traversing walls. And, of course, DD-WRT support was a must. I was searching for the following features:
Putting all of this together seems to be a simple task: This technology has been around for more than five years. However, nothing is as easy as it seems unless you know exactly what you’re doing. Finding the right router for DD-WRT necessitates comprehensive qualitative study.
After doing some research, I discovered that some Netgear WNDR3400 routers can be found for a very low price and can support DD-WRT. The Netgear N600 is another name for this router. DD-WRT, in particular, is compatible with the 3400’s first edition.
While doing some research, I discovered that refurbished Netgear WNDR3400 routers are available on Amazon for under $35.
I thought the price was reasonable, and if I could get my hands on a version 2+, I’d evaluate it on its own merits. (Update: Check out the “new and used” section for the best deals on WNDR3400s.)

Wireless is everywhere, and routers are the driving force behind it, so why not beef up yours to take full advantage of it? DD-WRT helps you to expand the range of your router, add functionality, and more.
There are a lot of features in DD-WRT, much more than we can cover in this guide, which is aimed at getting your router updated. Stay tuned because we’ll go over all of the cool stuff you can do with it in more detail in a few days, but even if you don’t need the extra features, DD-WRT is worth installing to make your router work better.
This is the location of our router. The Netgear WNR2000, revision 2 is now available. It’s also a really good one, but it’s not the strongest. What is the reason for this? Your router’s firmware, or the program that runs it, is just as good as its firmware. When you purchase a router from Linksys/Cisco, Netgear, D-Link, or another manufacturer, you are obligated to use their software. It’s a good deal; you respect their limits, and they pledge to assist you with your issues. But what if your warranty has run out or you want to get rid of its restrictions? Perhaps you want to test the hardware to its utmost capabilities. This is where DD-WRT comes into play.
