I just acquired a WRT610N v1 on ebay. I was very disappointed with stock firmware when I experienced the frequent disconnection. That happened whenever I was transferring large files on the 5GHz band, and it also disrupted the video streaming on the 2.4GHz band to my media player. Before this router, I have 4 G routers and 2 N routers running dd-wrt already. So I give it a try. I have been using K2.4 r16494 WRT610N.bin (only for v1) for a few days. It has been very stable. I only experienced disconnection once during file transfer. My video streaming has been very smooth and the wireless signal and range drastically improved. As a precaution of heat accumulation, I put the router vertically with the back ventilation holes exposed. I tried the K2.6 firmware once, but I had problem in seeing the 5GHz band. Now I am very happy with the router.

i've installed the dd-wrt.v24-16994_NEWD-2_K2.6_big-e2000.
Everything went ok.
But when i read all the topics, all people are able to select wireless channel 161.
I don't have this option.
Does somebody know how to reveal it?

I can ping (TTL=100) and tftp to the router when it first starts up (powered on). I have not been able to flash an image that would bring it back to life.
Anyone have any suggestions on what to try?
Start a new thread.. When you do, explain what happened to the router to begin with.. What hardware version is the 610? exactly what build did you flash and / or are trying to flash, etc.. More detail the better. _________________ [Moderator Deleted]

I have wrt610v1 and I want to know which version is more stable with wi-fi especially with 5GHz band.
I use DD-WRT v24-sp2 (10/26/10) mega 15508M NEWD-2 Eko, and I have very low signal strenght and very slow wi-fi connection especially at 5GHz...
