ultimately I am looking to have my dd-wrt router provide vpn access (using StrongVPN) to all devices that connect to it. Others (not requiring VPN) will connect to my carrier-provided vdsl router/wifi. My main router is on 192.168.1.1.

I bought a linksys wrt1900acs v2, connected the wan port to my existing router, configured it and tested it (all with the linksys oem firmware) - all good.

I then flashed it with r35531 successfully. It made me change the main username and password and allowed me to modify the wifi settings (only changed the name and password, left them as AP-mode). I am able to change the the IP address (and dhcp) of the local lan ports/wifi. I tried 192.168.1.x/24 without overlapping with the main routher. I tried 192.168.2.1/24, etc...

The wan port successfully gets an IP address from my main router (192.168.1.60), but never allowed my pc (wired or wireless) internet access through the dd-wrt router.

I figure I need to get the basic functionality working before I tackle the VPN bit. What am I missing?

Thanks in advance...

I tried over a dozen times to get this installed. I have a WRT1200AC v1 and I'm ready to convert it to DD-WRT like my old WRT54GS. I've tried all kinds of variations including holding the reset button on the back for about 30 seconds, resetting to factory default on the GUI, etc., and every time it just dumps me back to the Linksys screen. This thing is driving me nuts. I really like DD-WRT, and especially when I learned it was compatible with NordVPN, not to mention the warranty is probably void by now, I thought it was time. My patience has run then though so I ask you guys for help before I give up and try another firmware.

Have you tried downgrading the stock firmware? http://desipro.de/ddwrt/K3-AC-MVEBU/, or using his factory to dd-wrt, then webflashing it with a newer build?

I second that. If it's anything like the WRT1900AC v1, then you will need a back-level of the stock firmware to be installed prior to upgrading to DD-WRT.

This one is probably old enough (c2015): https://www.userdrivers.com/LAN-Network-Adapter/Linksys-WRT1200AC-Wi-Fi-Router-Firmware-Update-1-0-4-167471/

I have the WRT1900ac v1, where can I find a back-level of the stock firmware, since I am having problems web flashing it to DDWRT? Thank you.
