Can't wait to see this firmware progress! Having this firmware available for the DIR-825 is huge! Especially since your guys here at DD-WRT are magicians.

I'm having a problem.. every time I torrent it will go fine for a few minutes then just come to a complete halt, everything internet related doesn't work. Even after closing uTorrent and unplugging the router is the only fix, I even increased the max amount of connections from 4096 to 32,000+ no help.

This is indeed good news. It would be great news if the community support takes off on this device.

I had to retire my old WRT54GL(lets face it, good as it is it is a dinosaur) because it was bottlenecking my internet at 30mbit(have a 100mbit docsis 3.0 cable), hence i bought the dir-825 a couple months back.

Just installed the dd-wrt about 4 hrs ago, so far so good. I did confirm i can get my full 100mbit while running dd-wrt which is good news. Maxed out my connection at 12mb/sec while downloading 8 linux distro torrents(didn't lock up unlike previous poster).

Time will tell, hopefully its not too buggy and support takes off Smile

I just bought one of these routers today and so far I'm liking it a lot.

I have a question though for those who have opened theirs up - What is the deal with the weird ceramic-looking heatsinks on top of the Realtek and Atheros chips?

Mine has only a very thin piece of some unknown grey material on top of each of these chips, attached with a piece of double-sided heatsink tape.

I notice the device runs pretty warm so I thought surely if these chips need a heatsink, a GOOD heatsink would be better right?

Any reason not to replace these with bigger, better, finned aluminum heatsinks?

FYI, on my router the thermal tape on these heatsinks wasn't even making contact with the entire top of the chip. When I popped off the "heatsink", you could see that only the very outer edges of the tape had been sticking to the chip, even after the unit had been run for hours. I am thinking of putting on better heatsinks using thermal epoxy.

Also, how come this router isn't in the Router Database?

I think you should decrease max connections, not increase... Rolling Eyes

Doing that makes it lock up even faster.

Anyone know what the first file from the download sections is for? Is it just the stock firmware? Perhaps for reverting back to stock from the dd-wrt?

I'm Talking about this file:
dir825-firmware.bin
From this download section:

Can you check this, it might be the same problem that im having:
- telnet 192.168.1.1
- login
- type: top

This is my output:
Code:
Mem: 23552K used, 38120K free, 0K shrd, 1952K buff, 6116K cached
CPU:  0.0% usr  0.0% sys  0.0% nic  0.0% idle  0.0% io  0.0% irq  100% sirq
Load average: 1.44 1.35 1.12 3/27 2890

  990     1 root     S     1504  2.4  0.0 upnp -D -W eth1


Look at the high load from ksoftirqd.

Looks like an old issue, plenty of topics but no solution to this in the forums?
I had the same after my first flash that I thought was fixed after a 30/30/30 reset, but after some time the issue is back.
Internet not completely stops but is extremely slow and the webinterface is verry unresponsive.

Telnet says its an invalid command. I tried setting IP filter settings to those shown here:

http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Router_Slowdown

It stopped locking up but when torrenting the speeds will drop to 20KB/s then go way up to 600KB/s+ then fall back to <50KB/s again, rinse and repeat. Even during the slowest moment I have no lag, now only if I can torrent..

Hope next version fixes this problem.

Maximum Ports: 65535
TCP Timeout (in seconds): 600
UDP Timeout (in seconds): 120

Seems to be the best so far, been 2 hours torrenting @ 600KB/sec and its holding there.

Hi guys,

I just got a new DIR-825 rev B1 for X-Mas and saw that it is supported by OpenWRT but what about DD-WRT ?

I have tried the firmware from the december but there is a hardware mismatch and wont load.

I got mine to work. I had to flash it with IE and not chrome. The only issues I see with this firmware is the wireless. I would also like to be able to turn up the transmission power. I tried turning it up but it didn't seem to do anything. Wouldn't mind seeing the lights work right but its no big deal. Keep up the good work.

^^?? Not sure what you are trying to say here.

Are you asking if I have a static IP or am I using pppoe?

I just have a dynamic ip via DHCP from my DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem.

pppoe is DSL isn't it?

Thing is: the router is also doing this after a reboot and with all torrent clients turned off (about 60 active connections)
IT stay's high even when i'm almost not using my connection.
I can find many topics in various linux forums about this, but non with a solutio that has anything to do with routers.

edit:
Found the cause of the problem WLAN: adapter 1 (ath0) as soon as I enable this to AP on any mode the router just 'overloads', CPU is up to 100% (2.35 2.22 2.12)
And when i do cat /tmp/var/log/messages i get a lot of these messages:
Code:
