When will you be able to upload an install guide? =/ I got a E900 and i want to set it up as a repeater... but i'm deathly afraid of bricking anything since i'm a poor college kid xD


We are working on getting the E1200, and E1550 working.. DD-WRT will release official builds, those are the ones you should load. As of this post there is no official download yet, it will appear in the wiki when it is rolled.

As for installation, please refer to the peacock thread, and the wiki, it does help a lot when setting up a new device.

Any progress on the official build for the E900?

I see a build number beside the E900 on the wiki but I can't find where to download it.

My linksys wrt54g shut down last night....not sure why. The lights all went on and then stopped blinking...even after a hard reset. Bought the E900 today and don't see a flash for it yet. I suppose I will try the E1000 flash. I'll let you know how it goes.....at least Walmart has a good return policy Smile

I don't think you can flash the e1000 one on the e900.
Here is a link to the e900. ftp://dd-wrt.com/others/eko/V24-K26/svn18946/
Look for e900


I can only see mini for E900. Is there no full feature version yet? I just got the E900 at Walmart because the Wiki suggests it's compatible. I am very new to DD-WRT, but I am a firmware engineer.

Thanks for the help!

Thanks...I wish I could get this to initially flash though. I followed all the same procedures I've always done with DD-WRT with the e900 and right now my router will NOT work.

So, how were you able to flash this properly? This is the second e900 I've bought and both are at least partially bricked. I download the trailed e900.mini build and did a 30/30/30, then firmware upload, waited 5 minutes, did another 30/30/30, waited another 5 minutes then tried to get into the web config page. At this point I cannot ping the router. I am able to get it to ping with a ttl of 100 and with proper timing have attempted to restore the factory firmware using the methods indicated in the tftp documentation. My uploads were successful but the router still isn't coming up. I can get the router to have a blinking power light in recovery or management mode, but that's it. If I try to access the webgui during this time I don't get a time out but rather a rejected message.

Help!

I got DD-WRT to install on my Linksys E900. I found the router for $25 and am now using it as a range extender.

A range extenter is a nice to have for me, not a necessity, so I wasn't too worried about bricking the router, as I'd pretty much just be out the $25.

Here's my experience. YMMV.

1. Downloaded the dd-wrt.v24-18946_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini-e900.bin firmware from here:

ftp://dd-wrt.com/others/eko/V24-K26/svn18946/

2. 30/30/30 Reset.

3. Upgraded firmware using the router admin page.

4. Waited about 3 or 4 minutes.

5. 30/30/30 Reset.

6. Waited quite a while. I took the advice from the Peacock thread and had a beer, went for a walk, etc., etc. When I came back, I couldn't ping the router. I only got time outs, no ttls.

7. I had prior experience of causing myself a lot of extra work the first time I did a DD-WRT upgrade by not waiting long enough at this step, so I waited even longer. Total wait time was between an hour and a half and two hours. Pings still weren't working, but I had some hope the router was OK based on the fact that none of the lights were on for any of the unused ports. I was realistically expecting problems, if not a complete brick.

8. I finally decided that whatever was done was done, so I powered off the router, waited a few seconds and started it back up. Success! I was pleasantly surprised to find the DD-WRT install was up and running!

Obviously not a definitive guide, but maybe my experience could help someone else.

I am trying to follow the ned27's guide. I assume I am to load the firmware in his link before the 30/30/30. I downloaded it but when I try to load it to the router it won't find the file. Do I need to convert it to another file type? If so, how?

EDIT: nevermind, wasn't waiting long enough!
