Use damn Search button, OK?

Don't post immediately a new topic. As many, many questions have already been asked and answered, the forum contains a wealth of information as well. Yes, it may be a little harder to dig up the topic where your problem was solved, but the digging you do will have a benefit too: you will come accross a lot of useful information on the way.

So start by doing an extensive SEARCH on the forum, using various key words that may lead to the topics that can help you which will save everyone a lot of time.

The DD-WRT Project has had two older forums over its history. You should search for information in either forum.
