I had the lastest DD-WRT firmware for my TL-WR841N router & set everything up. I watched several old videos & read articles but I can not get any to create one successfully. In fact I can not see DHCPD section like they show & I have managed to lock myself out of my router but thankfully got back in. Can someone help me with the #'s I need to put in? I want the Guest Network secured & able to throttle the bandwidth. I just want it separated from my private network key for when I have guests but don't want it public.

last firmware doesn't mean number?..in 3 years time this thread will still have the last firmware... Laughing
yep on one of the last firmwares mDHCPd was missing so you need the last one where it appears again...

im not entirely sure, your router will handle all your requirements...as TL-WR841N is a router for a basic needs...only...it has very low amount of ram and slow CPU...as well small flash size ram 4MB...

Are you saying I need an older version of DD-WRT or the one posted on Dec. 27, 2020?

what alozaros is saying is that the latest is a relative term, and we need a more specific term.

There are dd-wrt resources:
https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Guest_Network
https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Guest_WiFi_%2B_abuse_control_for_beginners

My favorite directions are:

as i said, im not sure your router will handle, QoS and guest WiFi, along with isolation rules...as it has very low amount of RAM, it will very likely to stall...but it wont hurt to try...now you got the links ... good luck !! Smile

Alozaros Thanks. I'm not sure if it will. I hope you're wrong as the computer store really took me over the coals on this & I'm trying to make due as they won't take it back even after I said I found it on Amazon for $17.99 & you charged me $49.99. Claimed they are a brick & motar store & that was it.
