    Hey, I found your blog kind of by accident. I’m at Rutgers (State University New Jersey, USA), majoring in Electrical/Computer Engineering and Computer Science.
    I’m no novice with computers, but i’m not an expert either, especially with networking and whatnot. I’ve had a Dir-655 for a few months, and I noticed you had one also, and what seems like relatively strong exposure to the DD-WRT project… Do you know if the Dir-655 is capable of running DD-WRT? I can’t find a solid answer anywhere, but you seem like you might know the answer. Also, sorry for posing this question as a comment on your blog, but I couldn’t find your email address.

    I used Ubuntu for a few years before I got a mac, but then I fell in love with OS X on my MacBook Pro, so I’ve got a decent background in *nix terminal and the basics, like ssh. However, I’m having difficulty finding any resources explaining exactly what to do to “telnet into my router”. In the terminal I can run telnet, and tell it to open a connection to the router’s address, but it says denied every time, unless it’s connected via the WAN port, and then it just says that it can’t find it.

    If you’ve got the time, I’d really appreciate any advice or guidance you could give me with regard to the whole DD-WRT project, or things like redboot. I have a very limited understanding, and I just can’t find enough information bridging together the knowledge I need to assimilate =P. If you don’t have time to write anything yourself, I’d definitely appreciate any resources you could point me towards.

    Thanks =)

    Hi Nat,

    Sorry to read thru your wall of text and replying a 1 or 2 line sentence.

    BUT DIR-655 does not support dd-wrt

    Hi Nat Schaffner,

    Wow! Perfect background for toying with embedded systems! Like Fanatic has pointed out, the DIR-655 does not support dd-wrt as it is not a GPL product.

    If you are interested in playing RedBoot and stuffs, try picking up a D-Link DIR-300 from your nearby computer store! I’m not an expert as well, just fooling around with the hardware. Haha!
