  • Jaringan

LinkSys WRT54GL is one of the wireless router that is popularly use as Wireless Access Point. In this article I want to share my experience when upgraded the router firmware with DDWRT. Before I upgrade the router firmware, may be there are some terms that must be known:

  • What is Firmware
    In electronic systems and computing, firmware is a term often used to denote the fixed, usually rather small, programs and/or data structures that internally control various electronic or computer device such as a router or cell phone.
  • What is DD-WRT
    DD-WRT is an open-source alternative firmware for routers. The firmware is maintained by BrainSlayer and is hosted at dd-wrt.com
  • Why Upgrade LinkSys Firmware
    Upgrading firmware with DDWRT can unlocks features that aren’t present on all routers like static routing, VPN, repeating functions, the list goes on. It also unlocks settings that aren’t accessible normally, like antenna power and overclocking.
  • Installing programs on a router, known as firmware, are achieved by a method called flashing.
