    1. which version would anyone recommend for those with Rev A1 routers?

    2. also my router currently has DD-WRT. Can I flash Tomato via DD-WRT Firmware upgrade page?

    Thanks a lot for the help.

    New member first post. As per the Tomato instructions for flashing the D-Link DIR-868L with r27097 and many older builds many builds bricked my router. I was finally able to get dd-wrt on there with build r23082. Now going to see if I could flash with Tomato.....

    Success with upgrading to Tomato. Again just to recap dd-wrt build r27097 and many others builds bricked my router. dd-wrt Build r23082 was only build my router accepted. Going to configure Tomato tomorrow for first time use....

    Use following to flash back to stock firmware and then flash to tomato. Make sure to clear DDW-WRT settings before flashing back to stock.

    1. Plug the Ethernet cable that connects your computer, that was plugged into one of the LAN ports,
    2. Setup your PC with static IP - ex: (different from
    3. Make sure the PC has the new firmware
    4. Unplug the power
    5. Hold the reset button for 3~5 seconds and re plug the power WITHOUT RELEASING THE RESET BUTTON until the amber power light keeps blinking on and off.
    6.Open a web browser to and then you should see EMERGENCY FLASHING page then click browse/upload locate the file and click UPLOAD FIRMWARE NOW

    After some months using it, could you confirm that it worked fine for rev B1 ?
    Any new issues ?

    Is there ever going to be support for VPN on these builds? I'd really like to get this running with PIA on the router but since all these custom builds have omitted VPN configuration I am at a loss.

    DIR-868L lacks nvram space for OpenVPN. Compile with OpenVPN support, and you'll have a bricked router. Shibby warned me about this some time ago.

    I'd try installing OpenVPN from Entware.

    SSH doesn't work can't connect via PuTTY and Winscp, click startnow and the service just don't start. tried to find some hint in log, but nothing related. Tried tomato version 132-140.

    Nevermind, I didn't read the first page. I will switch to DDWRT instead.

    Does v140 work with DIR-868L HW:C1 FW:3.00? I found instructions for A and B models only. Should I install DD-WRT before Tomato? I found installation instructions for model A here and there 1. step is to flash DD-WRT into router.

    anyone having issues with CPU Temp. on this router? Mine is at 85 deg. Celsius w/o fan, and with fan blowing underneath I could only reach up to 62 deg. Celsius. Is this really normal temp. for this kind of router?

    Easy way to check is to put the OEM firmware on it and see what temp it runs at. That'll give you a baseline to measure against.
