I am not sure how to proceed upgrading my firmware for this device. I've read the Install, and read the posting that seem to be related, but cannot seem to get a firmware file that will install.
The specific problem is that the router expects a .IMG file. The file that the compatibility list specifies is dd-wrt.v24_mini_generic.bin. The web interface will not accept this file because it is not a .IMG.

This model is listed on the supported devices list. I even found messages when I searched the forums regarding this model. But for some reason I seem to be the only one that doesn't know how to shoehorn a .bin where a .img belongs...
Anybody want to venture a guess? At this point I will try anything!
For your V1, it says something about a modified chk file. You possibly have to flash an older version of a dd-wrt chk file, then that new firmware will accept a new bin file through the gui. _________________ [Moderator Deleted]
Yes it is a V1. The file I found was in the V1 directory. But you're right I should wait. I do on the other hand have a backup that is already flashed and working (Linksys wrt150n). It was much easier to flash!
Mine router is V1. I'am using a DD-WRT v24-sp2 (01/19/09) std and other older version before this without a problem. 1st you have to flash it with Talisman basic,after that - http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/others/eko/V24_TNG -- NEWD_mini.bin , and after that : dd-wrt.v24-11482_NEWD_std.bin . It's working fine for me And don't forget 30/30/30 _________________ Netgear WNR834B v1
