We - the dd-wrt team - are very glad when we get hardware donations, especially devices we do not have for porting. But sometimes German Customs is not pleased when the sender does not follow certain formalities. That can cause trouble for us (and what's worse requires a lot of time we then do not have for development). This can be easily avoided if you follow some simple rules:

  1. Use the Commercial Invoice PDF-Template, you can fill it completely electronically;
  2. Take care for the hardware value - if it is used take something < USD 50,- / EUR 40,-;
  3. Unwrap the hardware if it's in the original package and only put the device, powersupply and required accessories into the box for shipping
  4. Contact us at hardwaredonation@dd-wrt.com before sending the device and tell us what hardware you are sending. That's because we sometimes get requests from customs and they do not tell us what´s inside the package.


Please keep in mind that sending hardware is a one way ticket - in most cases we have to open the device an make some hardware modifications, sometimes the unit get's damaged. Please consider this carefully before sending a device.
