Discussion in 'DD-WRT Firmware' started by linksysmonkey, Oct 13, 2008.
Whats the best wireless N router that supports DD-WRT fully?
- 300MHz CPU.
- DD-WRT MEGA supported.
- USB2 port.
- gigabit switch.
thanks but thats more than what i want to spend.
In Amazon you can buy a refurbished WRT350N for ~$87. Not bad considering the capabilities.
There are other options with less memory, or slower CPU or lacking an USB port. All of these will give at least 130mbps. Determine what features you need, look around and find the best model that fits your budget.
I just ordered one of these Netgear routers
Netgear WNR834B. For $25, seems like a steal since it supports DD-WRT. Hopefully the refurb part isnt going to be a problem. What do you think about that router?
The main thing I am looking for by using DD-WRT is a bandwidth log. Does it keep a log of how much bandwidth your entire network has used each month?
I have not used this one, but it does look similar to WRT300N v1. It has a Broadcom 4704 @ 240MHz, Broadcom 5325 switch (100Mbit), 16 MB RAM, 4 MB flash. Any firmware should work in this one (except mega build).
I'd like to find a Wireless-N router for the following as well:
- Hackable Custom Firmwares with more features (*-WRT.. DD or Open or Tomato etc)
- I have a Intel 4xxx5 Wireless A B G N Card on a T61.
- Wireless N - For high speed N
- Wireless A - For longer distances (From what I hear)
- Wireless B/G for other laptops I have
- Antenna Power Control
- Additional / External Antenna attachable / hackable? (Nice to have, not necessary)
- Multiple Wireless Nets exposable.. (One Public with exposed SSID on on Subnet for GUESTS, One private.. Hidden SSID, WPA / WEP Key on Internal Subnet )
WRT600N will be the one. It is still not fully supported, but DD-WRT is improving every day.

According to some D-Link employees, hardware version B1 of the DIR-825 will use open-source firmware. I know that doesn't mean it will support DD-WRT, and who knows when it will actually see light, but...
N Should have more range and more speed compared to A. But A, MAY have slightly better range compared to b/g, but slower speed.
A does not have slower speed... A has 54Mbps, G has also 54Mbps and B has only 11Mbps.
DD-WRT not possible on DIR-825 !!!
I know it's not possible on hardware rev A1, but what about hardware rev B1?
Since asus, buffalo and linksys released some which one is tomato compatible (wireless N) ?
