If it is the DIR-615 C1, it is an Atheros AP81 platform router and identical to a couple Trendnet models. OpenWRT is now booting on these routers and ath9k wireless driver now works. But still has a ways to go.
dd-wrt has passed on this platform for now. Look here in the forum for AP81 references.
Wow, that's fantastic. I'll have to check and see wich version I have. But one quick question just in case I do have the C1 model, the unit that you said it was similar to only shows that DD-WRT is Wip (work in progress) is this still true? Or am I not seeing the right information. Thanks
Edit: I got what you meant now. So OpenWRT is the way for me then? Hmm, well I guess I'll have to abandon ship on that one for now. How is OpenWRT different from DD-WRT? Basically I'm trying to set this (or another one I've got Linksys WRT54GS2) thing up as a restricted access repeater....but I'm not sure if the G model will give me enough range.
EDIT: Edit: (all in the name of not double posting)
Ok so here's another question. I searched the supported hardware and I couldn't find my Linksys model stated above (WRT54GS2) but when I googled it I found a wiki on the site here and a link to download all the needed items for setting up DD-WRT on it. So am I to assume that DD-WRT does in fact work on this machine?
If you haven't already noticed I'm a very new novice to this so I do appreciate all the help.
Hello i just buy a DKT400 it's a DIR-615 Rev A1 with wifi usb stick (xx140)
So i wan't to use it for repet signal for my livebox i don't know how to because it say to connect on ethernet or i would like :
Phone Line -> Livebox (Orange Modem)-> ethernet -> PC
Livebox -> Wifi -> DIR615 -> Wifi -> 4PC
I find that about DIR-615 rev A1 the men connect internal serial to serial to USB to PC and see that :
I see that it has a uboot bootloader:

are there any good news to use DD-WRT or OpenWrt on the DIR-615 Rev. D1? Is there a build to use with this device? If not, what must be done to do this? I have two of these and need a fast wlan bridge. Basic linux knowledge is available, but i need some help to play and work with.
