I have just seen the Linksys WRT160NL:

http://gizmodo.com/5301321/linksys-wrt160nl-is-fully-linux-powered-80211n-and-acts-as-media-server

With 32MB of memory, 8MB of flash, and Linux support this looks like one router that I would want to run DD-WRT on. The only question is whether anyone has got DD-WRT to run on this hardware? If not what are the plans.

Edit: Came across more details: http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/content/view/30839/96/

I just received my 2 routers, any tips how how to proceed to test them out? I popped them open to find the solder points for JTAG, and it has them but they are a lot smaller and closer together, I will have to scrounge the net to find the right pins for them...

I just ordered one of these tonight. NewEgg has them for $78.99 with free shipping. Hopefully DD-WRT will be able to run on these soon.

It is based on the AR9102 chip from Atheros. Look here at the pics:http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=30839&Itemid=96

After recent experiences with sending stuff to BS and NewMedia I would not recommend anyone send anything to them. Just look at these two threads:
http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=44174
http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=32995
Couldn't even get anyone to let us know if they even received them, muss less any progress.

Hopefully if you sent it to Eko directly it will be different.

For any DD-WRT developers, this might be of interest:

http://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=20298

The thread basically covers the work the developers on the OpenWRT project have gone through, to be able to get OpenWRT working on this router.

I'm anxious to see how this develops. I just purchased one off Newegg.com. It seems strange that Atheros offers open-source drivers for their hardware and Broadcom does not yet Broadcom is better supported than Atheros. I know Atheros just recently open-sourced their code so these things take time. Maybe there's a push by Linksys for their Linux variant router to be more open-source friendly than the Broadcom stuff is. I've got my fingers crossed. I wish I had more coding knowledge so I could help with this type of stuff. If there's anything I can do testing wise, let me know I should have this thing in hand in a few days.

For anyone who follows this stuff for the WRT160NL, OpenWrt has a build that seems to work currently: http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/openwrt-ar71xx-wrt160nl-jffs2.bin and http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/openwrt-ar71xx-wrt160nl-squashfs.bin Maybe this means DD-WRT is close behind. They seem to have solved the switch issues. Very Happy

Is it worth to upgrade from default firmware, or not yet, better wait for dd-wrt?
