Hello,
My hardware is belkin f7d3302 v1.

I just wanted to ask every time i need to update dd-wrt I use the web gui (firmware upgrade tab) for that, after clicking "upgrade" i receive the message upgrade successful, rebooting..., and baam... after reboot it's still the same firmware. The same issue with tftp.

In the end i have to use CFE to update the firmware.

Is this truly normal? Why can't i update via gui?


I can restore defaults settings via gui just fine but i can't upgrade the firmware.

Or is there a setting I am missing?


Regards!

In first step restore factory default on your router. Now start ssh service on actual DD-WRT version. Login to command line and update firmware. In the end of operation you have information about problem. For example: "File is too big". I have the same situation when firmware for my Netgear is too big or incorrect. I'm update via command line always.

Thanks for your reply,

It's just that i forget to mention that i already tried flashing via command. This is the command right?

Code:

write [firmware_file_name.bin] linux


When i try this command, nothing happens, no error, and the router reboots immediately and firmware stays the same.

Yes I use that command. Now I'm check dd-wrt info pages and I'm found this https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Installation#Method_3:_Flashing_with_Command_Line.
There is a information about command "write (flashfile) linux &" I'm not use this command. I know instruction without "&" mark on end. Next information about Belkin is - provider hint to update device via tftp always.
You should try that: https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Installation https://forum.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices#Belkin

Which builds have you tried? I don't recall having issues with that router (with stable builds) except requiring an extra reboot at the end if I choose reset to factory settings while flashing.

I am trying using beta builds, dd-wrt.v24-34311_NEWD-2_K3.x_mega_f7d3302.bin for example. There's no other issue besides not being able to upgrade ddwrt version via gui or tftp or command ssh, only works by cfe.
