I just purchased the "DD-WRT v24 Special for Broadcom based devices" and got the download link for the "dd-wrt.v24_std_special_generic"
I am using the WRT54GS v6, and as far as the Shop page lists. the device is supported!

I have the v24-sp2 (10/10/09) micro installed at the moment and every time i try to upgrade, i get Upgrade failed message.

I got the version because i need to run the PPTP vpn on it.

Please, where do i go from here?

that router can't use std, it has to use micro builds, because it only has a 2meg flash. so you'd need to either get a micro build that will fit on there, or buy better hardware which can use bigger builds.

Thanks for the reply. Any recommendations for a better hardware with the broadcom chipset?

Thats too technical of a question for me to answer just outright, or recommend any kind of hardware because i would have a few questions of my own... But you can use this list in the wiki to find what you may like, and then inquire an opinion on it within this thread.
