Re: Everything MLPPP
said by skbrewer:I have the impression that this is point-and-click in the latest DD-WRT. Anyone?
I can switch the router to Tomato/MLPPP, but I'd really rather not go through the trouble if I don't need to.
As for switching between Tomato/MLPPP and DDWRT --> this is very simple to do, in either direction on your WRT54G. Just go to the "Firmware Upgrade" link, and point it at the firmware binary. Much simpler than the initial install of DD-WRT.
Ah, yeah? That's not so bad. I was thinking I'd have to do it the same way as the initial install, which, despite having done it on half a dozen routers now, is still a little harrowing when I do it the first time.
I've seen the screenshots of there being a "Multi Link" checkbox under the PPPoE settings in some versions of DD-WRT, but that checkbox isn't there in my build (listed in my previous post), which lead me to think it was in future betas only, which I can't use since they're not vintage builds.
Just don't neglect doing an NVRAM reset (from Tomato) after switching, or before switching back to DDWRT. Dunno how important that really is, but it all works smoothly for me (WRT54GL) when I do it that way.
And if starting from scratch, with Linksys factory firmware on the router, then the initial install of Tomato is as simple as clicking the "Firmware Upgrade" link there, too.
In fact, that's probably the easiest way to install DDWRT from scratch: use Linksys Firmware Upgrade to first install Tomato, and then.. procrastinate.
