I installed DD-WRT on D-Link Dir-300 rev.B, last build 44715 (https://dd-wrt.com/support/router-database/?model=DIR-300_B1). Looks like it works, I need it as a brdige repeater. Tried to set it up as reapeter several times. Every time I set all settings as repeater, router stops responding to any kind of access like WiFi or lan with cabel. A remark about lan connection - can't connect before setting up as repeater bridge with 8pin cable(tried several cables), but can with 4 pin.
Tried to install build for another router version, but only bricked it and got orange power led blinking. Revived it via emergency room interface.

The instruction You send is for Client bridge(only wired client can access router and internet), I use another instruction - Repeater bridge which allows wired and WiFi access https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php?title=Repeater_Bridge

We don't have to check anything.
Because we know exactly what is written on the page.
You just haven't read it.

Thank You, I searched in the wrong place! I found latest version for my router, as You wrote in previous comment, and installed it. Unfortunately it didn't change a thing. Every time I set it up in Repeater Bridge mode, click Save and after Apply then reboot - I have no more access to the router neither via wireless nor via cable. Laptop constantly tries to access DD-WRT, but no success.
