I just bought a brand new Cisco Linksys E2000 router and followed the instructions for the installation for DD-WRT (http://dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Linksys_E2000) with on difference: I used for the initial build the "dd-wrt.v24-16785_NEWD-2_K2.6_std_usb_nas-e2000.bin" which is listed in the router database (http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database).
Now I wanted to configure the OpenVPN which should be available in Services -> VPN. But no, there is no OpenVPN.
So, what did I do wrong? Do I have the wrong firmware version? Which version is the best for OpenVPN for the E2000 then?
Edit: OK, I think I have to get the "BIG" version, right? Unfortunately updating from "dd-wrt.v24-16785_NEWD-2_K2.6_std_usb_nas-e2000.bin" to "dd-wrt.v24-16785_NEWD-2_K2.6_big-e2k-e3k.bin" doesn't work - the update says "successful" but the router stays on the "std usb nas". Any ideas?
I want to use this post so I don't open a new one with the same question if you guys don't mind.
I just bought a refurbished e2000 and of course I want to flash ddwrt in it due to the great experience from my wrt310v2. I flashed that one with no problem, the instructions were pretty clear but with the e2000 I'm a little confuse because the version I need to flash in it.
My question is, do I flash the dd-wrt.v24-16758_Newd-2_k.2.6_big-nv60k.bin directly from the stock linksys firmware and leave it like that? Or,
Do I first flash the dd-wrt.v24-16785_NEWD-2_K2.6_big-e2000.bin from the stock firmware and then after that flash the dd-wrt.v24-16758_Newd-2_k.2.6_big-nv60k.bin over?
If I'm completely wrong can you please list the steps to complete the flash? Thanks!!!!
