Step 2A: Migrate to DD-WRT firmware

• First, you need to download DD-WRT firmware.
• DD-WRT version r25974 was used with great success repeatedly and on three separate units.
• Download the r25974 files here. ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2015/01-20-2015-r25974/
• Download two files factory-to-ddwrt.bin and dir868a-webflash.bin.
• First, flash the factory-to-ddwrt.bin file using the D-Link router’s firmware upgrade page.
• The process will take up a few minutes. Once successfully flashed your router will reboot.
• Next, go to the router page (default is 192.168.1.1)
• Using the D-Link router’s firmware upgrade page, flash second file, dir868-webflash.bin.
• The router will reboot once again.
• You should see DD-WRT and will be asked to enter new user and new password.
• I suggest admin and admin, repectively. You can change them when you complete the whole migration process.
• At this point you have a choice to updrade to newer DD-WRT firmware version (Step 2B) or upgrade to Tomato firmware (Step 2C).
• The following link may help you to decide to choose between DD-WRT or Tomato firmware. https://techstorify.com/dd-wrt-vs-to...uter-firmware/
