Wow! The D-Link DIR-600 supports DD-WRT

The D-Link DIR-600 router is a one-third wireless N device. What is one-third wireless N? It simply means that its wireless feature can perform at speeds higher than wireless G (802.11g) and lower than wireless N (802.11n).

Now the D-Link DIR-600 supports DD-WRT. For those who like to get more out of their device, simply download the firmware from this dd-wrt forum thread. Flashing it is relatively straight forward, simply get into the emergency web server page (setting your computer IP to be, then follow the “Getting into Emergency Recovery Page” section of Flashing DIR-300 back to original firmware).

Have fun!

    any review on this router with DD-WRT?

    I did a speed test the other time round but didn’t blog about it. Let me find the information.

    Only works for people with Revision B/B1. If you got the A/A1 models (The common variant in North America at the moment) there is no support yet.

    The sets sold in my region are revision B/B1. 😀

    Now using dd-wrt build 13064
    -seems stable, better than stock d-link firmware 2.0
    -unable to connect 2nd router via WDS or wireless client

    Hi, does DIR-600 support adjusting transmit power?

    because i think DIR-300 cannot do that.

    The setting was different with another ddwrt.
    I owned ddwrt buffalo whr-hp-g54 and it has transmit power to set in MW.

    I’m using dd-wrt build 13064, just today, cannot connect to wifi but lan port is OK
    have to 30-30-30 reset the router and re-enter the settings again, this is the 2nd time in 1 week..

    here’s the temp solution and working for 1 day already without reboot
    1) reset router
    2) enter new admin profile and password
    3) goto Wireless, use only AP, do not add any virtual device
    4) goto wireless security, use WPA and AES
    5) enable uPnP
    5) save, go to Admin page, apply, then reboot

    I don’t know which is causing the wifi problem, if add/change the following additional virtual interface
    administration-web access
    administration-remote access enable

    I will loose the wifi in about 30 minutes, the signal is still there but “can’t connect”

    Ya, the signal is there. But cant connect.
    i has reset the router for a 8 times.
    but till now, i cannot connect wirelessly.

    try this command to clear everything
    mtd -r erase nvram

    then, just configure the basic wireless config

    on WDS, this is working: (wirelessG)
    -Wireless Physical Interface wl0
    –> hidden ssid and no security

    – Virtual Interface
    —> WPA security

    2nd router (tomato) on WDS connects to the 1st router’s hidden ssid above
