I don't want to end up wild guessing and having a bricked router.
Thanks in advance!
btw: the mini 14929 build doesnt work as it should because when I hit the save button the screen goes instantly to an error saying " 192.168.1.1 didn't send any data"
Edit: It works in Explorer, not in Chrome

I pulled out an old stock WL500-W which has to act as a repeater to cover some dead areas at the back of my garden.
I read the WIKI and Peacock thread and TFTP'd succesfully the NVRAM - Recover - Mini Asus.Trx which is actually
DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/12/10) mini - build 14929
After doing some research I found that most of the recommended firmware links are all running dead (logically)
Does anyone has a fine working build?
If you want a newer build try 33772 (which has the Krack fix for client/repeater modes). Reset then manually set up. If you have issues, flash 33555. All kinds of old k2.4 routers were reported working with 33772. _________________ #NAT/SFE/CTF: limited speed w/ DD#Repeater issues#DD-WRT info: FAQ, Builds, Types, Modes, Changes, Demo#

If I don' see my router model in the list should I then take the broadcom mega.generic or the mini.Asus ?

If I remember correctly....(we're going back quite a few years now)....the USB drivers were removed from the firmware after that build. So you could never mount the usb drive. In the same folder that I had this build of firmware...I have another file called EXT2.zip. I believe this to be the EXT2 USB drivers (ext2.o) that had to manually be installed after this build. I could never get it to work though.
The repeater function should work...I was one of the original testers and had tested all my units as R/RB back in the day.
