    dd-wrt on WL700gE

    Has anyone tried to install dd-wrt in their WL700? They have a micro version for routers with 2MB of Flash.

    What is the advantage?

    OpenWrt has had a wl700ge variant going for some time now, and it has matured over time to now become reasonably stable and working properly. It uses the same optware packages as dd-wrt, so why would you go with the experimental system when there is a wroking open system available?

    The kam7.09.trx on this page:
    http://wl700g.homelinux.net/drupal/?q=node/145

    ... is the best firmware for this box I have yet tried.

    It isn't that easy to install, but there is help available:
    http://wl700g.homelinux.net/portal/c...page/Itemid,1/

    ... so if you have even a little experience with a Linux command line, why not give OpenWrt Kamikaze 7.09 a go?

    I heard something about that DD-wrt wasn't supporting usb, but I havent checked in it.
    maybe I'll try that later.

    Openwrt or Custom Firmware on asus? - http://wl700ge.hezik.nl/ - Http://wl700g.homelinux.net

    My ASUS collection: WL500gp(80GB usb-hdd - Running OpenWrt Kamikaze 7.09) | WL700gE(250GB - Running OpenWrt Kamikaze 8.09rc1)

    Well, it seems more user friendly than openwrt. I know about x-wrt but dd-wrt has more things integrated in the UI.

    I think there's a version with USB floating around.

    The web-UI for configuration of dd-wrt is far ahead of openwrt, but that still doesn't seem to make up for the fact that openwrt actually works on this box but dd-wrt is an unknown.

    Yes dd-wrt is an unknown, that's why I'm asking if someone tried it.
