SOURCE: help please

With Comcast make sure the you clone the MAC address because they use it as a authentication for your internet connection, MAC clone is done on the router setup page eventhough you're using now a DDWRT firmware and after cloning the MAC address on the router page power cycle modem and router for a minute then power on modem first next the router....

SOURCE: wrt150n dd-wrt firmware slow loading pages

First off thanks for using

Second, I too am a dd-wrt user and found a similar problem when using dd-wrt with my IPCOP. You may want to go into the "Security" section of your dd-wrt and disable any fire walling or access-restrictions. Since you are already running zonealarm. Or remove zonealarm if you plan to use dd-wrt as your firewall.

Running multiple firewalls will slow down your network/Internet traffic.

Hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: Wrt150n, Flashed with DD WRT.

You probably need to update a newer version of firmware. Here is a link for you.

SOURCE: My linksys wrt54G v6 router has a blinking power

Understand that what you are trying to do, may permanently turn that router into a piece of trash. Firmware upgrades are hit and miss, and sometimes even doing everything correctly will result in a "Bricked" router. A bricked router is one that is about as useful to a computer as a brick. Proceed at your OWN RISK!

Read all directions BEFORE you try anything! First D/L the correct firmware for your router. Then D/L TFTP.EXE from the DD-WRT site. Put these files right on the desktop where you can find them and unzip the firmware. (I am assuming you are running Windows XP)

Now connect your router to the computer you are using with an Ethernet cable and plug in the power. DO NOT TRY THIS VIA WIRELESS!! Then you need to set your computer to a fixed IP address, Open your network connections (control panel - Network Connections) right click your local area connection and select properties. Highlight Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and again select properties. Under the General Tab select "Use the following IP address" enter Under Subnet mask enter Click OK and wait for the TCP/IP connection to be established. The router first must be reset to the factory default configuration BEFORE you flash it.

Resetting the router means, with the router plugged in to a power source hold down the reset button (on the back of the router) for 30 seconds, then pull the power but continue holding the reset button for another 30 seconds. Then WHILE STILL HOLDING THE RESET BUTTON, plug the power back in and hold it for another 30 seconds. Now you can let the button go and allow the router to reboot.

If you still have only the power light blinking, try pinging the router. Open a command prompt, (Start RUN CMD [Enter]) and type PING -t Leave this window open and dbl-click the TFTP.exe program. There are three empty boxes in the TFTP program. Enter the IP address of the router in the server box ( enter ADMIN (all lower case) in the password box and click the dots next to the file box, browse to your desktop and select the firmware image you downloaded (.BIN)

Now if your ping command is only returning "Request Timed Out" try resetting the router again only this time watch the ping window for a response from the router. If you get a response, immediately click "upgrade" on the TFTP window. If all goes well you should get an "Upgrade Successful" message. This step is important!! RESET THE ROUTER again after waiting 10 minutes. Now if the router was not initially reset to the factory default configuration before someone tried to upgrade the firmware, it is possible that the router is hanging while it tries to boot and the firmware image was corrupted. If that is the case then you will need to read the DD-WRT Wiki under "Bricked Router". Good Luck!!

How to create wireless bridge

DD WRT is a firmware upgrade sight you can find wonderful firmware upgrades that make your router come to life and Evan worth more than you payed for your original router, check the router database and see if your router is listed and capable for an upgrade to dd wrt, i did it with my dir615 and it gave me a whole host of additional optins for configurations , it was a long search for "dd wrt" but well worth it.

Just bought this Router ASUS RT N16. I upgraded the firmware to DD-WRT. Then upgraded to Tomato firmware following instructions found on the net. Router worked fine with DD-WRT but when I did the install...

If the device is dead in the water as a result of flashing the firmware - then I'd bring it back for either my money back or even exchange. I'd explain that during a firmware update, it became unresponsive. That's it.

I'd flash the replacement to DD-WRT firmware for your particular router again. Make sure you've got the right firmware file for your router's hardware revision too. I'd hold off on flashing to Tomato. (I use DD-WRT to perform wireless bridging w/ two Linky WRT54Gs and haven't had to do a thing to them in 3 years now - I must admit that I'm not familiar with Tomato). There's got to be an issue with the Tomato upgrade procedure you followed, firmware file or a mismatch on hardware revision of the router. I'd want to find out what that problem is before attempting it again. I doubt the store would be very understanding if you showed up with yet another dead router.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Hey guys could i use my router as a radio to pull the internet signal from a next router without using any cable

With the Linksys router it is not possible. You will need to connect the cable between the two routers. Linksys router will not pick up the wireless signal from the other wireless router.
May be it will work If you upgrade the DD-WRT Firmware. Not sure but it may. consult with the DD-WRT expert before upgrading the firmware.

My linksys wireless-g router hangs up all the time and I m ust power on and off to get it to reconnect


I even have experienced such kind of problem. To fix this problem all you have to do is to download a new firmware, which is an opensource firmware from DD-WRT it has much more features than the ordinary firmware and its much more stable.

Then after upgrading just make sure that you put the option for Keep Alive enabled and try and restart the router like once per day so that it does not clog up.

That will solve your problem. The DD-WRT website is

Have a good day.

I have linskey wrt160 router the router work on my desktop not my laptop it will not connect

I have heard alot of people having this type of problem. The best would be to upgrade your firmware to another firmware such as

dd-wrt and tomato

I prefer you choose DD-WRT just go to and click on supported devices and just type in the last 3 digits of your router then download the firmware depending on the type of your specification. Then on the wireless make sure you put the Wireless Network Mode on Mixed.

If you need more setting please let me know i will be able to assist you much better on this..
