Download the Generic Broadcom Mini version and the Mega version if you want to install that as well. Do not try to install the Mega version directly. Testing showed repeated mixed results including two bricks. Testing always succeeded with Mini installed first. Rename the MINI file to start with 'dir330'. OK to rename the MINI file to just dir330.bin; again, filename must just start with 'dir330' .... that would have been nice to know !! considering i went to the router page found my router and the only download on it is Mega ! that is so awesome, couldent have a little * install mini before mega there or anything .. its only 2019.

Apparently, you didn't see the additional information wiki link on the router database download page:

All the information is in the wiki, bad flash recovery, etc. Extreme worst case is a serial recovery.

well this is interesting ... ok well, i was able to see the router over wireless and connect to it. It says the IP will stay default, but it did not. i was able to enter the router with wireless and wired now. Somehow i guess the install did work, but changed the ip settings. The router had no IP in Ip config until i got on it with wireless, now the wired and wireless are giving me an IP in Ip config. dont ask me why.. Rolling Eyes

i just wanted to add to this, earlier it seen the router but said Unknown network over wired. the wireless seen it as DD-wrt, now both are connecting and earlier i even tried the same Ip i just got on it with. the default should a have been 192.168.0.1 but it changed to 192.168.1.1, but that is my regular networks Ip, and i did indeed try it. i honestly dont understand it at all.

It doesn't matter what the factory firmware defaults are, DD-WRT always sets it to 192.168.1.1 (see step 15 thru 27 in the wiki under "Flashing DD-WRT")....

it said something about the default Ip and after flashing it would remain the same, i dont know what piece of info it was from i read allot of stuff yesterday. But i have the router running and set up, but now i cant get the Vpn to work, i followed Nordvpns set up on their websight for dd-wrt and redid it 3 times to be sure, but it wont run the vpn. When i go to Status > VPN , it just hangs on that page and wont load, but a check on whats my IP showed no change. But over all the dd-wrt did work and seems stable with the newest mega. i have a 2 router set up both can get to the internet and work, just cant get the vpn to run.
