Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router

1 Answer

3rd party firmware broke my router!

I have a linksys WRT150N, and I installed some 3rd party firmware(dd-wrt) to try to make it act as a wireless bridge. It failed to work, so I'm attempting to upload the linksys original firmware which I downloaded off the linksys site. However, the dd-wrt firmware refuses to let me upload the linksys image. Any ideas?

    I downloaded the correct firmware, but because the dd-wrt firmware came out after the linksys firmware, it refuses to back up

    1. DD-WRT is partially supported on this router. 2. Since the
    available memory is too small nothing usable can be accomplished by
    upgrading the firmware. 3. work is going on on several fronts to get
    DD-WRT micro edition compatible with this router. 4. A lot
    documentation is available to install a USB port as well as a serial
    console on this hardware. The FCC ID for this particular router is FCC
    ID: K7SF5D7234A I decided to go ahead despite the fact that the router
    is partially supported by DD-WRT, You can easily recover from a bad
    flash by making sure the firmware is available to the router during
    startup. As stated on most sites I was able to flash the router
    successfully and got WLAN working but LAN ports were not working
    properly. Some of the sites that I found useful were

    1. : Custom firmware for Belkin routers with 2MB Flash

    2. F5D7230-4 v2000 firmware : Original firmware for the Belkin F5d7230-4 v2000 router.

    3. TFTP server : TFTP server used to upload the firmware onto the router.

When I setup the unit as a repeater, after rebooting it freezes and looses the connection. I have tried several times and aloways get the same results. e-mail

This normally has to do with wireless encryption. If you use WPA encryption disable it and enable WEP or, for the time being, no encryption. Then retry.

Most routers do not support repeaters while using WPA wireless encryption. It is a known fact. Only way around that, is to install 3rd party firmware if your router supports it, such as Tomato or DD-WRT (my favorite).

Linksys WRT160N Connection Issues.

Sadly, this router has horrible reviews and is known for this problem:

Can you return it for another model?
Can you getLinksys to replace it?

the best one is the LINKSYS WRT54GL, but if you are stuck with the one you have...

If you have tried all these things and you are very brave (or don't care if you need to buy another router) why not try flashing it with an after market O/S?

Connection Drops . wrt150n disconnecting

This is a firmware issue with the newer Linksys routers, and most people are having the same issue. Don't expect a stable firmware release from the manufacturer any time soon.

Instead, if you want to fix the problem properly, head on over to and install their firmware. I did this in a last ditch effort before throwing out my router, and now the router hasn't acted up for more than 10 days.

Be sure to follow the instructions when flashing firmware, several of the steps are critical to not "bricking" your router. As usual, make sure you are on a WIRED connection, as flashing from a wireless connection is guaranteed to kill your router. When flashing dd-wrt's firmware, you must also first flash a "mini" or "micro" version before flashing the full version.

Configure wrt54g2

IF you mean "File Sharing" as in your own network of PC's on your network, then all you need to do is turn off sharing option within windows. Your router will not set sharing your folders, drives, printers, etc.

Check your windows setting in "Networks", then "Sharing" and set the appropriate options for your needs.

Hope that helps.

Linksys N router drops signal

Its not dropping you because of the spectrums, it works on line of sight. If you are in a basement and your router is upstairs it has to go thru a floor and the strength is weakened. Go into your router and increase the signal strength. But you have to mod your firmware.

Here is a link to update your firmware.

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.
