How to: Install DD-WRT on WRT350N v1?

    Hi everyone,

    Today after months and months of contemplating, I've finally picked up a WRT-350N v1. As a long time WRT54G owner with Thibor (and previously, Tofu) firmwares, it's very difficult for me to switch knowing that the great Thibor does not have a firmware ready for us. I'm now too spoiled with Thibor's firmware and I can't live without not having static DHCP on my router.

    Thibor/Tofu are the only firmwares that I've tried flashing beside official Linksys firmware. Can someone here please guide me on what I need to do to flash to DD-WRT firmware?

    Under "Generic Broadcom" page in DD-WRT.com, there are "dd-wrt.v24_mini_wrt350n.bin" and "dd-wrt.v24_mini_generic.bin", should I do reset to factory default, flash with the wrt350n.bin first then flash it again with generic.bin??? I'm just a little confused as to what I need to do.

    Also is v24 RC2 pretty stable for most of you? I've read from a few thread that people bricked their 350N when trying to flash it...

    Thanks guys and I'm hoping Thibor will bring us another great firmware very soon.

    After doing some reading I finally downloaded v24 RC1 mini generic and flashed it on my 350N.

    I had to read another post in here to figure out how to get static DHCP going. Now it seems to be running great!

    Just follow the instruction posted by the poster above.

    I flashed mine today to RC3 and it's working good so far.

    In case some is still looking for this, how to flash DD-WRT v1 to WRT350N:

    1. Go to this page:
    http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/down.php?path=downloads/v24-sp1/Consumer/Broadcom+Generic/

    2. Download the following files:
    - dd-wrt.v24_mini_generic.bin
    - dd-wrt.v24_mega_generic.bin

    3. From the Linksys firmware, flash the mini generic version (dd-wrt.v24_mini_generic.bin).

    4. Wait 5 minutes.

    5. Press the reset button for 30+ continuous seconds.

    6. Logon into the router:
    - User: root
    - Pass: admin

    7. Set your new password.

    8. From the DD-WRT firmware, flash the mega generic version (dd-wrt.v24_mega_generic.bin).

    9. Logon into the router:
    - User: root
    - Pass: <whatever_you_used>

    10. Configure your options.

    I don't doubt your instructions but i'm curious as to why I need to use the generic mini when there is another mini labeled as 350N?

    That file is intended for tftp flash.
