I have been playing with the maximum port settings to get utorrent working properly without thrashing my internet/games/voip. I was wondering what success people had at doing this, only way I have found so far seems to limit bittorrent traffic greatly. I setup QoS and set BT(bittorrent) to Bulk. Also in my speed tests I seem to be getting very crappy upload speeds (ie DL 7MB Upload .3MB (should be closer to 2-3MB)
Currently I have the following settings
Maximum Port -> 1024
TCP Timeout -> 600
UPD Timeout - 120
I just flashed to the latest build earlier today and everything went smoothly but when I try and transfer any files from one desktop to another I am only getting 1MB/s transfers. This seems extremely low to me. Any advice on fixing the issue?
Current setup is
Wireless Mode N only
Channel Width Turbo(40mhz)
Control Channel Lower
Under STATUS --> Wireless it shows TX Power of 13 and that doesn't change no matter what I try to set it to and rate of 75MB/s though thats higher than usually as it has been at or around 30 all day

I have searched forwards and backwards though this forum and cant find anywhere if the A1 rev is supported or not. and if it is if someone could point me in the right direction of instructions on how to achieve dd-wrt on this rev that would be great

I have several problems with my Dlink DIR-615 now.
I've successfully flashed it with dd-wrt firmware I found at Router Database. For my E4 there was only firmware for E1, so I used it.
Then I found out that there is no "Repeater Bridge" setting in this firmware - I flashed my router just because I wanted to extend my networks`s range.
Then I read a lot of things on this forum and found some hidden firmwares made special for my E4 version.
The problem is that now I can't use this special firmware - I tried to flash it both via web interface and via tftp (extremely many times with tftp). And failed.
So here are some questions:
Why can it be that way - why can't I flash it with "hidden" firmware?
Would this "hidden" firmware enable "Repeater Bridge" option?
How can I flash my router with original firmware (I have a bin file but can't flash it both in web interface and tftp too).
Thanking you in anticipation for your answer.
P.S.: btw I flashed successfully my DIR-320 and extended network's range once already. It's really a pity to have such trouble with DIR-615.
Some news: I've just updated a firmware to DD-WRT v24-sp2 (10/26/10) std - build 15506 which is made especially for my D-Link DIR-615-E4 (router model admin interface is "D-Link DIR-615-E3/E4"). I made some manipulations with .bin file in Neo hex editor (added last few digits from firmware "original-to-ddwrt" for E1). Then uploaded patched file with web interface. It still hasn't Repeater Bridge in settings. Client Bridge seems to be useless for network's range extension.
Does anyone has some information about support of Repeater Bridge by DIR-615 in future? Is there any way I can help to implement that feature?

I tried using the file posted in this thread, and my DIR 615 C1 tells me that the firmware file is incorrect. What am I doing wrong? I'm using a wired connection, I have version 3.12NA right now. The file I downloaded from this thread is exactly the same as the one from the compatibility page, and I tried them both anyway, from both IE and Firefox in Windows 7.
I have problem with dir-615 ver: D4.
I flashed it.
But I can´t enter the settings of dd-wrt firmware on 192.168.1.1
This is how did I flashed it:
I did 30/30/30 reset, then upload new firmware on 192.168.0.1(I set the IP to static 192.168.0.2).
After that I connected router dir-615 and modem.
Then I changed to obtain IP address automatically.
And then I can connect to internet, but wireless don´t work and I can´t enter the router dd-wrt settings.
After I reconnect the power cable(switch off/on) I can´t connect to internet, but wireless works.
Does anybody know what is the problem ?
Thanks in advance and don´t be angry if I posted in wrong topic.
