DD-WRT is a Linux based alternative OpenSource firmware suitable for a great variety of WLAN routers and embedded systems. The main emphasis lies on providing the easiest possible handling while at the same time supporting a great number of functionalities within the framework of the respective hardware platform used.
Linksys provided the technical information and code to implement support for their new WRT3200ACM in DD-WRT. We now have a firt firmware build available! The firmware images can then be obtained via the Router Database.
Following Linksys’ CES announcement made on Jan 05th in Las Vegas accompanied by a first preview version for the Linksys WRT1900AC now also versions for the WRT1200AC, WRT1900AC v2 & WRT1900ACS are available via DD-WRT’s router database.
As some of you might have recognized via the press the FCC intends router makers to lock down their devices to prevent users from changing RF settings to operate a device outside the allowed spectrum. Practically this leads to a complete firmware lock down preventing users to install third party firmwares. We all know what that means for security, innovation and freedom so the FSF launched a online form to easily voice user’s opinions to the FCC at www.dearfcc.org. Feel free to tell the FCC your point of view!
A good working relationship has been formed with Linksys to where there is now DD-WRT support planned for the Linksys WRT1900AC and WRT1200AC routers. This is possible due to Linksys and Marvel working closely to improve the upstream support for the Marvel CPUs and Wi-Fi radios. Stay tuned for more news in the near future!
