Trying out DD-WRT on my Belkin F5D7231-4 v1102. I see in the db for the model that the serial flash version needs to be used. Is that in a separate tree or am I missing something?

Thanks,

From where I sit, it tells you to TFTP flash it:

https://ibb.co/MDvCShD


https://ibb.co/pRBy2V5


Ping, power, put / ping, put, power...

Current release is 48138:

dd-wrt.v24_micro_generic.bin

dd-wrt.v24_micro_olsrd_generic.bin

Firmware images for these is in the broadcom folder under each release.

Thanks. I did see the note to use TFTP but the page I found didn't have a link to the image.

When you said to "Ping, power, put" do you mean power is a 30/30/30?

Ping router IP; apply power to router; put firmware image via tftp client. OR, ping router IP; put firmware image via tftp client; apply power to router. Timing is everything. Per the wiki, firmware images are located in one of the following locations:

https://ftp.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/betas/
https://download1.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/betas/
https://dd-wrt.com/support/other-downloads/?path=betas/

OK, this is maddening. Not my first rodeo. I've done a lot of Linksys router flashes but this is my first Belkin. Can get to the router homepage (192.168.2.1) can ping it but TFTP doesn't work. Never get an ACK back. I've done the 30/30/30 as well.

Your pings are arriving after the bootloader / firmware is up (TTL=64); you are not getting the TTL=100 or TTL=128. It is strictly a timing issue. Which client OS are you using? I generally have been in the habit of putting an unmanaged switch between client and router, ping the "correct" IP address from client, put the file via whichever TFTP client, and immediately apply power.

v10xx might be different from v11xx ?

Furthermore a router with 2 MB flash and 8 MB RAM and very anaemic CPU perhaps not worth bothering ?
