Firmware Installation

First perform these steps on each devicve to get the hardware up on the current DD-WRT firmware with desired features...

  1. perform a 30/30/30 reset to make sure it's at factory defaults (note this is using the recessed red reset button, not the protruding blue one for WDS)

  2. connect as to its WebUI through any LAN port (initial login is root/admin)

  3. upgrade flash with dd-wrt.v24-18777_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini-e4200.bin

  4. wait five minutes to make sure everything's booted and written to NVRAM (now is a good time to grab a beer)
  5. perform another 30/30/30 reset

  6. confirm the DD-WRT password reset page is displayed

  7. set root/admin as the new login (yes, I know that's the same as the old login)
  8. backup the CFE as routername_cfe.bin (it embeds the original interface MAC so you want one archived for each device) and stash it somewhere for long term safekeeping

  9. upgrade flash with dd-wrt.v24-20453_NEWD-2_K2.6_std_usb_nas-nv60k.bin

  10. wait an additional five minutes (and grab another beer if you like)
  11. perform yet another 30/30/30 reset

  12. wait five more minutes (another beer... why not?)
  13. confirm password reset page is displayed and Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (12/31/12) std-usb-nas shows in the top-right corner

  14. set root/admin as the new login (we'll change it to something safe last thing)
  15. celebrate with beer
