    My craptacular Dlink 624 finally died and I got clearance to get a new one. I knew that WRT's allow hacked firmwares so went down to Staples and got one.

    The bottom of the router says it's version FIVE. The fw version was 1.00.0 and a check at Linksys shows that this is the NEWEST one. So it seems pretty obvious I have a very new model of this router.

    Can anyone help me hack this thing? For starters, the user interface is attrocious. I didn't like the performance of the Dlink but I'll give them credit for a superb interface. I saw some of the popular hacked firmwares but none OFFICIALLY support v5 WRT's.

    Can anyone shed some light on this router. Would really appreciate. :)

    according to the hwsupport.txt file in v23 releases of DD-WRT, v5 is supported.

    this was a misstake since i got only the information that the v5 hardware is identical. now the situation have changed. i agree with nbd (openwrt) that it isnt a big problem to get openwrt and dd-wrt to work on this unit. but the currently binary should be incompatible due its own fileformate. possibly it works, possibly not. no guarantee yet
