@quarkysg - I am using below build and having trouble with Access Restriction functionality (it works sometime after router reboot). In earlier build it used to work without reboot.

"Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r34929c quarkysg-std (02/17/1Cool"
I use SFE (not very important), PBR and Access Restrictions.


You may want to try the latest BS or Kong’s builds and see if the problem is resolved for you. They may have fixed the issue since my last build, which is quite dated by now. Since the dev fixed the bricking issues for the 868 and 880Ls I’ve stopped releasing new builds.


can you please point me the links to BS or Kong's build.


If i am right they are the DD WRT betas located here https://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/other-downloads
i used them after quarkysq advice.

Just a question.

Has anybody been able to get a OpenVPN server running and working on the 868 (rev A)?

I’ve tried basing my settings from this: http://www.stj.me/2016/02/17/openvpn-ddwrt.html and this: https://www.howtogeek.com/64433/how-to-install-and-configure-openvpn-on-your-dd-wrt-router/ with some modifications to match some specific parameters for my setup.


I get the server to run, but I can only connect to it sometimes. And even if I get a positive connection it does not seem to actually route my traffic trough the VPN, nor can I connect to my local network.

I’ve only tried to remotly connect (so far) trough my phone (iphone) so the problems might be on that end (but I doubt it since the client part is pretty straight forward).

I use a 2048 bit Diffie Hellman parameter is thos to large for the 868 to handle?

The most probable cause is that I miss something important in the iptables config since I’m kind of in the deep end regarding this (and you don’t need to scold me for messing with these settings without fully knowing what I’m doing I know it’s ”dangerous”).

So anyone that might enlighten me if there’s some ”special” parameter to think of or is the 868 simply not suited for running a openvpn server?

I've had this sitting in a box for 3 years and figured I might as well put it to work. I currently have the modem going to an Asus RT-N66U with Merlin and that has been fine, although we spend more time in the bedroom which is on the opposite side. I'm in an apartment building with over 30 SSID's so 2.4ghz is a death trap, and 5ghz is a little flakey at that range. So I was thinking to put something in the the bedroom to improve things.
As is I have 2 other spare routers but sadly T100 only and I'd rather have the gigabit for when I transfer locally.
I do have a usb to serial adapter, not the kind i saw mentioned with the 4 pins already, but I can solder and have a little experience with Putty.
So what options do I have? Which is the best firmware? As is it I think i'll leave the Asus as DHCP and the Dir will be just being a wireless AP really.

Hi i'm new to this and have been reading the forums and new build threads, what is a good solid build that I should start off with on this router?
Also what gets added in the newer ones, do they change a lot? I see some newbie threads recommending builds from a few years ago, is that still a good option?

Go for the latest release as it contains new features and bug fixes. Only use old releases if you have no choice.
