Re: install DD-WRT on WRT32X

What browser are you using? Try IE11 or FF?

Using the latest WRT version?

 

I would post about this in there DD-WRT forum and see if anyone else is haveing issue. Could be a DDWRT fw issue they need to address.

No DD-WRT images work for WRT32X at the moment (despite they have two betas on the FTP - router will not boot with them). 

 

Update procedure quite simple:

  1. Upload image to router (via openssh-sft-server or other methods, rename it to .img)
  2. sysupgrade <image>
  3. reboot
  4. wipe tears
  5. triple on/off to reboot from partition #1 (to stock firmware)

Looks like you need to run stock FW on the 32x until WRT gets this fixed.

 

I would post about this on there forum as well. I presume there maybe others talking about it already.

Stock FW (actually it is openwrt / lede) is not so bad, but has issues. Looks like author (Kaloz?) made it to fit requirements only (to support very limited native GUI).

I have a friend who has a 32x. Says it's solid and stable on intial FW out of the box. Hasn't upgraded since he got it and he's not wanting to update. I can see why. Smiley Frustrated

When should I expect to correct the invalid firmware?

The same thing is happening with newer WRT3200ACMs. It turns out that Linksys has changed nand memory chips on newer models since Sept. of 2017.  This may hold true for the wrt32x as well. So I guess ppl with newer wrt3200/32x may not be able to load dd-wrt.  I read this on the DD-WRT Forums.

Let's hope that linksys will help solve the problem for developers of dd-wrt.
