as the question title said, i would like to convert my old WRT54G v1.1 (serial number beginning with "CDF3") from its Linksys firmware to DD-WRT based for better security control, such as HTTPS management, syslog, and even snort if possible.
i already did a research looking for the correct DD-WRT firmware for this model. according to the Router-Database (BETA) at http://dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv3/dd-wrt/hardware.html
, it seems to be "dd-wrt.v24-9517_VINT_std.
bin" which can be downloaded form http://www.dd-wrt.com/routerdb/de/download.php?file=379
am i right?
could someone here let me know how to install this 3rd party firmware step by step?
after a 30-30-30 hard reset, can i just simply upgrade the router from the existing Linksys firmware (v1.41.8) by uploading "dd-wrt.v24-9517_VINT_std.
bin" using Linksys "Firmware Upgrade" functionality?
additionally, after the modification, is it possible to revert to Linksys official firmware? say v1.41.8 again? did anyone actually do that before?
thanks to expert Darr247 for the following EEKB:
Be sure to do a 30-30-30 reset before and after applying firmware changes.
