I have bought a new D-link DIR-842 router and I would like to install DD-WRT on it. However it isn't in the list with supported devices.
I have tried to open the router but I did't succeed (it has no removable rubber feet to hide additional screws, only two screws underneath the label. The back didn't come of though). However I managed to get some info on the hardware by looking through the ventilation holes with a torchlight:
I think you can pry the top off of the unit. Mine was improperly placed when i got it out of the box and i snapped it back in place. Screws might hold the hardware to the lower plastic part. I did not try to open it so as not to lose warranty.
I would like as well to know if it will be supported in the future. It has far too little options and settings.
