It's possible the DD-WRT firmware was flashed successfully, but the router booted back to the former partition.
You can try manually switching to alternate partition with either of the two methods described in the Tutorial or flash the factory-to-ddwrt.bin again.

* This happens sometime. Nothing you did incorrectly!


I do not know what could be the problem.
Connect via "Telnet" or "PuTTY" does not work.
A new version of "dd-wrt" was released, and the result is the same (https://download1.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/betas/2018/07-16-2018-r36330/linksys-wrt1200acv2/)

Try a different build.

FYI: SSH is not enabled by default - only Telnet (port 23). Also, the default IP is 192.168.1.1

I changed the device address when configuring.
Telnet does not work either.

You have to enable it. On one of the latest builds, I noticed it was disabled in administration.

I am having the same problem. I attempted to boot to another partition using the "on-off" method. Both times I tried it rebooted to the OEM firmware.

Latest builds (36410) for Linksys WRT1900 ACS and AC V2 (FCCID:Q87-WRT1900ACV2) fail to properly boot on initial wrt install (factory-to-ddwrt.bin). The router attempts to startup/boot, fails 3(?) times and then switches automatically back to OEM firmware. I didn't try prior builds as builds as far back I can see (36427, 36330) all have booting issues.

I, of course, tried to force partition switch which confirmed that router is trying but failing, then thankfully fail-safes back to OEM vs. bricking.

Try upgrading to DD-WRT from an older version of stock Linksys firmware. If you don't have an older version saved, you can ask the Forum or get one here:
https://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/linksys/wrt_ac_series
Firmware Images - Linksys OEM Builds

It goes without saying, but be sure to download the correct OEM build for your router and hardware version.

Yep, confirmed that going back to build 35681 4/6/18, install success on first try, no issues. In looking through other threads for WRT1900AC/S, this date seems to be stable and happy.

One thing I noticed (because it gave me a lot of trouble) is the version seemed to be extremely important.

I have the WRT1900ACSV2. That's what it looks like on the label on the underside of my router. Well, being a newb, I tried to install the firmware for the V2. After the first firmware upload, logging back into the Web GUI, I was still on the standard Linksys Firmware. I was slightly confused, as I thought I should be looking at the DD-WRT Firmware at that point. Nope.


I went ahead and uploaded the .bin file and.....Solid red light...Absolutely nothing worked. Couldn't access the WebGUI, nothing. Had to do a reset, and fortunately found out the original firmware was still on there.


I tried 3 times with the same results.

Turns out, I don't have a V2. I have an S.

Used the firmware for the S. Worked first time. No issues. Running perfectly.

And this is the lates firmware as of 7-XX-2018

Always go by what is listed under Model Number not the FCC ID.

Hi All,

I am a DD-WRT newbie and have a couple of questions.

I have a Linksys WRT3200ACM router and is currently running the Linksys standard firmware. I am considering flashing with DD-WRT to enable me to link my IP VANISH account to the router.

If I do this is it possible to have say 2 wireless networks? one that routes through the VPN and one that doesn't?

With DD-WRT am I still able to manage my router remotely as I do currently using the Linksys app?

Thanks in advance

The most effective method may be to set up a VAP (Guest Network) or a VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) and use iptables (custom firewall rules).
I personally haven't needed to split my OpenVPN Client tunnel, but I have seen plenty of information on it.

Check out the Advanced Networking section of the Forum.

Yes. For larger devices such as an iPad I just use the default browser to navigate to the GUI at 192.168.1.1.
For smaller screens I recommend the DD-WRT App by Dappitude Limited. There is a Lite version for free you can use for testing and the paid version for $7.99 (worth it).

I also use the SSH / Telnet Client App, Shelly. There's a free version that has everything you need. (I upgraded to the paid version to support the developer)

When I run the ubootenv get boot_part command, all I get back is list as the return. I have listed all of the ubootenv variables and that is what is supposed to be returned. I am running version 36330 and wondering if there is something else I should be using for the command. Thanks in advance.

When you run the ubootenv get boot_part, you get a list like this?

root@Dink_1900:~# ubootenv
usage:
ubootenv [option] [item] [value]...

[option]: {set,get, del,list}
[item]: Uboot environment variable name
[value]: Value of uboot environment variable

ubootenv set [item] [value]....
ubootenv get [item]
ubootenv del [item]
ubootenv list
root@Dink_1900:~#

If I use the ubootenv command to set the boot back to stock Linksys, can I use that command while on the stock firmware to get back to DD-WRT. I don't recall stock Linksys coming with SSH baked in or a command option using the GUI like DD-WRT. What's the easiest way to do this on the stock firmware?
