AWESOME antonelli,
Just what I was looking for. I can't wait to get home tonite and give this a try. Looking forward to putting the 5500 back online.

So you didn't see any 5Ghz wifi options on the UI?  ???

Not yet.. I have little time to play around with the router.. But I'm sure there is a way.
Next step is to perform a series of benchmarks to compare with my old DIR655, Stock 5500 and OpenWRT 5500.

Ok, you might post a question in there forum if you can't find it on there wiki. I'll have a look on the wiki if I can find anything.

Please feel free to post your test results here.
Also I used this to recover OEM FW from WRT FW for future reference:
Emergency Recovery Mode
 ;)

Hey Furry,

I just read on other forum posts you saying about the problems related to Streamboost and the relationship with Qualcomm. Just to understand and to make a decision about keeping stock FW or OpenWRT, I like to know if Qualcomm is still developing or trying to make SB better. Or SB is a dead tech?
Does enabling SB really change anything in real world? Aside from stealing 10% from my bandwidth?

Tonight, I'll try installing SQM package. https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/sqm.
From what I read, this is the state of the art packet prioritizing technique.

From what I know, the DGL-5500 from D-Links development perspective it's dead. I don't know if QC will be doing any more with SB or not since it was there child. As far as D-Link is concerned, they will not be doing anything with SB again.

Let us know if the sqm package works. If it helps better with any gaming configurations, this will be good to know as there are many gamers that would be interested I believe.

So I loaded the WRT file and started putty and got the following:
login as:
@192.168.1.1's password:

I don't know what the PW is. I didn't get a blank screen and got the log in when hitting Enter. I did see a security window appear regarding about a code and if I trusted this. I'll try a few other PWs then if I can't get in, I'll load OEM then try WRT again.

You must hit yes to trust the certificate. Try SSH and Telnet.

Ok so I reloaded OEM then WRT.
Telnet says the connection is refused.
SSH gets me the Warning window pop up. Yes, No and Cancel.
I presume if I hit yes, will I get the log in screen again where I have to enter the PW? I don't know this PW...

You are correct.. Hit yes. There is no initial PW. You will set a initial password using command "passwd"

Follow the steps on the link: https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/firstlogin

Im getting the Log in As then it's asking for the PW.
What am I doing wrong?
In not seeing the OPEN WRT text at all.

That's it. Edit your post please. LOL

Also edit your post to reflect that the router needs to be connected to the internet before the start of the LUCI process. It has to download from the servers for LUCI installation.
