Berdasar pengalaman penulis, type akses poin (AP) Linksys yang cocok diupgrade ke DDWRT, adalah Linksys WRT54GL, selain AP type tersebut, kemungkinan untuk gagal update besar sekali, so jangan coba-coba anda mengupgrade firmware tanpa pengetahuan dan pengalaman.
Untuk upgrade firmware DDWRT, langkah pertama download dahulu firmware dwrt di situsnya : http://www.dd-wrt.com, pilihlah versinya sesuai keinginan anda, sebaiknya anda pilih versi mini dahulu, demi kemanan perangkat Linksys anda, setelah di download pada komputer anda, anda masuk ke web konfigurasi Linksys WRT54GL, anda masuk ke bagian administration, lalu pilih kolom upgrade firmware, lakukan upgrade, ingat selama proses upgrade firware, jangan sampai koneksi listrik dimatikan atau padam, akibatnya kalau terjadi demikian akan merusak Linksys anda, setelah ada pesan Upgrade Successfull, anda lakukan proses Reset, agar lebih stabil, kemudian setelah direset, lakukan upgrade ulang dengan menggunakan firmware yang standart, ingat sekali lagi setelah proses upgrade selesai atau berhasil, lakukan Reset untuk kedua kalinya. Demikian skenario proses upgrade firmware DDWRT.
