nope, both bins work great. i had no problem. u might have to hard reset after the first flash to clear the old settings from linksys. i had the linksys setting on mine, i did a hard reset and all was well after. i did flash mine to mega build. works fine. thanks bs, again for supporting this router.
Thanks BS - this works great. Some quick feedback... I have a WRT300N V1 and a V1.1. The new load doesn't look like it supports the "N" radio (it is not in the drop-down for wireless setup). Everything else seems to work exactly as the V1.

First, I want to say thanks to the DD-WRT development team, you guys are awesome!
This will be the first time I'll use DD-WRT, and I'd like if someone can answer me a few questions:
1 - What's the difference between the mini and mega versions, which one should I get?
2 - To hard reset the router, I need to hold the RESET button in the back of the router, plug in the power cord, wait for 30 seconds, remove the power cord and release the RESET button... Is that correct?
3 - If something goes wrong during or after the update, the procedure to get the router back working with Linksys firmware is the one stated in page #15 by bash64? Does it work in Windows?
Thank you again BS, for finally getting it to work with 300N v1.1 and Maxkaos, for sending him the router!
the linksys tool alone did not do it. i had to do a hot reset. a power cycle reset didn't work, so i was fooling around and this is what i came up with.
set the linksys tool to upgrade to 192.168.1.1
select the file.
set retry to 10.
leave it open, but don't upgrade yet.
plug network cable into port 4 (don't think it matters as long as it's not wan) and computer with ip of 192.168.1.2 and mask of 255.255.255.0 on computer.
start a ping in a command window.
ping 192.168.1.1 -t
plug in power to router.
hit upgrade on linksys tool.
hold down reset button on router.
at some point the linksys tool should be successful.
after it is, immediately release the reset button and WAIT. it took like 5 minutes for me, but this was the first time the power light actually came on with the only other light for the port i was using.
the ping will time out. eventually it will come back. at this point you can logon to the router with 192.168.1.1. blank username and password of admin. if this doesn't work, hold down the reset button on the router until the pinging stops again and then release it. when the pinging resumes, you should now be able to log on.
i used the WRT300NV11_1.51.2_US_code.bin default linksys firmware from the linksys site. after that was installed and i could access it, i upgraded to brainslayer's mini and then mega in this thread. BrainSlayer, you rock too.
if you people haven't donated at least $20, you really should do so. This software kicks everything's ass, and you're using it for free. i don't understand why someone hasn't tried to outsource it yet. why would they continue to develop in house firmware when this is so much better?
Thank loads to all. time to replace my WAP54GL. well, no really. time to augment it.
it is not yet fully working because wireless-n uses 20mhz and 40mhz with 20mhz topping out at 130mbps so your not going to be able to get up to 270 mbps with DD-WRT because 40mhz is not supported
(thanks to Knasher)
So are you saying that even if it shows 270mbps on the wireless status page that it won't go to 270mbps? I have a WRT310N and a WRT160N that I'm trying to bridge wirelessly where both show >130mbps connections, but get slow speeds. Is that for sure confirmed? The details of my problem are posted here.
