Install DD-WRT on Linksys WRT150N – be careful

I have a Linksys WRT150N and want to try installing dd-wrt on the router to solve a problem with one of my computers which keeps disconnection from the router when a large file transferee is started.

Install instructions for WRT150N on the dd-wrt site.

I want to upgrade. I stated by uploading the dd-wrt firmware through the web interface, but it didn’t work. After reset the router didn’t response at all.

The mini build bricked my router. Read this blog post to see how to unbrick the router. http://blog.lausdahl.com/post/Debrick-Linksys-WRT150N.aspx

After the router has been unbricked I was really happy I thought it was a useless box but it came back.

Installing the standard version of dd-wrt.v23_sp2_standard.zip caused the dd-wrt firmware to recognize my router as a WRT300N. Then the wireless didn’t work. To solve this problem I looked at the RC version WRT150N_v1 then the router upgrade was complete. It works perfect 🙂
