A few years ago I donated to this project and got an activation code from Brainslayer. The problem is that I'm not sure if I found the right computer. I installed and did not really used this router, I just donated for the sake of the project.

I have problem to distinguish the free version with the professional. After searching the wiki for several hours, I'm still clueless. After reading Linux Today, I found out that Wi-Fi support is only available in the registered version by purchasing a Professional Activation for € 20.00.

That explains why It's so difficult to distinguish both versons, I don't have a wireless card in this machine. So much hassle, I just wanted to upgrade to a new version.


I think this information should be easy to find, at least in the shop so you know the difference between those versions.

I think you should specify the difference in the shop. This is the most logical place to look if you want to buy a license, not the wiki.

After some digging in the wiki I found this information.

Quote:
Full version supports wifi and up to 65536 connections.


On another place in the wiki, I found this info.

Quote:
Full DD-WRT versions has built-in USB support.



Somewhere else I found this information. I wonder if this is correct information?

Quote:

The mac address for the WAN cannot be cloned from the GUI, this is by design in the public version of DD-WRT x86 to avoid conflicts with the registered version, which relies on mac address for activation. This, of course, does not apply to the registered version of DD-WRT x86.

I wrote that bit about the mac address cloning based on what I read once in here:
http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=27646

I dont really know how true this is, but yeah, it sucks and cloning doesn't work on the registered version. The workaround is there, and it works that way. Have been using it this way for three years now.
