Note: for advanced users only! Acting wrongly may provide your router completely worthless (“brick it”). Furthermore, the installation of DD-WRT on your router, may void the manufacturer’s warranty. 12. Want more tips for improving your cellular internet? 1. Many routers are ideal for alternative firmware. If you ask me, the best choice is Tomato or FreshTomato.
With that, you have a significant lot of tweaking possibilities, a lot more so than with the standard firmware of your router. Isn’t there a Tomato / FreshTomato build designed for your router? You then might consider DD-WRT. DD-WRT is, if you ask me at least, much less good as Tomato and its offspring (often less stable, more bugs, less reliable, less easy to install), so for me personally it’s definitely second choice. But nonetheless, it’s a choice, as well as your mileage can vary greatly.
You can get DD-WRT here. Note: the information on the website of DD-WRT is unclear and confusing. That’s why I’ve written this site. 2. When you wish to limit your bandwidth per user, through QoS, tomato, or FreshTomato is always the much better choice then. On the problem of QoS Especially, Tomato / FreshTomato is both better and much simpler to set up technically. 3. You should use the router database in order to check on if your router is fit for DD-WRT. 4. A significant benefit of DD-WRT is, that (unlike Tomato / FreshTomato) it supports more than simply Broadcom-based routers. Besides routers with Broadcom WiFi chipsets, it supports routers with the also.g. Atheros WiFi chipsets.
5. Installing DD-WRT is time uses, and consuming many steps, but isn’t difficult to do. The only thing you will need is precision. Do precisely what the how-to says, and don’t neglect anything! The complete job may last a full hour. 6. For a first-time installation you will need two variations of DD-WRT, specifically the mini and the full version.

Therefore, when first turning to DD-WRT, you need to set up new firmware on the router twice. First the mini, and then from the mini the entire version. 7. Another essential requirement is the so-called 30-30-30 reset. The 30-30-30 reset means that you keep the reset button on your router, pressed for at least 90 seconds. During those 90 seconds you perform several actions.
More about that later. Perform the 30-30-30 reset before and after each firmware change. This is essential for a faultless set up absolutely. It may be simpler to do with assistance from someone else, because you need to carefully keep the reset button pressed on a regular basis. 1. Start the router with the old firmware still set up.
