Hey all,

I have a DIR 810L   that is just sitting around doing nothing since I nolonger have the network that it was turned into a extender for.

can I reconfigure it to work as a wireless adapter for my acer laptop whose builtin wifi has stopped working?

way back in the day with a different laptop I was able to bridge the ethernet and wifi adapters of my old toshiba laptop to get my xbox 360 online.

Not with OEM FW, maybe with OpenWRT or DD-WRT.

I believe I loaded mine up with OpenWRT..

Thanks.

is it hard to flash a router with ddwrt or openwrt?

FurryNutz:
No, it's not, you use the OEM UI to load the FW file and it take over form there. Just be aware that you need to load the FACTORY or OEM to WRT file first. Don't load the systemupgrade first or you'll break the router recovery mode and if it becomes bricked for any reason, you won't have a way to recover or load back OEM FW. Besure to ready all of the instructions first.

FurryNutz:
I'll have to look at mine again, I may have loaded DD-WRT.

Its supported on there site:

Usually WRT has bridge features which would work for your needs.
