I’ve had this little router for years, bought it for $20 with a $20 rebate, and since upgrading the OS to DD-WRT it’s performed flawlessly.
I have a Belkin wireless router (model number: F5D7230-4 v1444). For some reason, the â€œVirtual Serverâ€ (or â€œPort Forwardingâ€) did not work correctly. Itâ€™s obviously a firmware problem. I checked the firmware version and my router had the latest firmware from Belkin. I wrote to Belkin Customer Service but who knows how long I have to wait to a response from them.
Thus I tried to find a custom firmware for my router on the Internet and I came across a firmware project called â€œDD-WRTâ€œ. The project was targeted at making custom firmwares for Linksys WRT54G/GS routers. However, there is a micro version which can be used on Belkin F5D7230-4 v1444. I decided to give it a try.
