DD-WRT Kong Mod is a dd-wrt re-build for broadcom 47xx units with >=8MB flash. For a list of supported models checkout the Readme.
This build in myopenrouter download section is not for 60K/64K NVRAM Units, to find the exact build read the Readme.
WNR3500L V2 [Dual Radio] Builds not yet available.
Compared to dd-wrt std_ftp_nas it removes following features:
- a few themes
- sftpserver ( use scp instead )
Compared to dd-wrt std_ftp_nas build it currently includes the following features:
OpenVPN and MiniDLNA Build:
- network speed optimization (Benchmark)
- general speed optimizations (compiled using -O2)
- opkg optware package management tool
- large file support samba, console utils
- inotify support
- kernel futex support
- fpu support for optware packages
- kernel rt mutex
- lower default TX power for greater stability
- 3/4G Modem support
- full featured uClibc for better optware compatibility
- sd-idle included (usb disk spindown, see tutorials how to enable it)
- advanced usb drive automount, with swap support
- drive umount using SES / AOSS / EZ-SETUP / WPS Button
- clean umount at reboot
- DLNA Media Server for DLNA/UPnP-AV Clients (XBox, TVs...)
- xl2tpd with kernel driver (better throughput)
- zabbix enterprise monitoring client (Screenshot)
- proxy with adblocking/filtering in transparent or nontransparent mode (Screenshot)
KingKong Build (only Asus RT-N16):
- includes all features + voip
Automount: My builds include a completely redesigned automount.
By default all disks are mounted to /tmp/mnt/disc_part.
If a partition is labeled Optware it will be mounted to /opt, if it is labeled Jffs it is mounted to /jffs, if it is labeled Mnt it is mounted to /mnt.
You can override this behaviour by supplying the uuid of a partition in the webinterface this will override default and mount by label strategy.
Umount through SES/WPS Button works the following way:
Enable Use SES Button to remove drives in section Services->USB of the web interface
Now when you press the button the power light will go off indicating the start of the umount process. Once the light blinks twice umount is complete and the power light will go on again. Now all of your partitions have been umounted, including swap.
After that you can safely remove your drives. If you have multiple drives (e.g. a,b,c) you have to disconnect all of them and attach the ones you need again (e.g. a,b). There is no option right now to selectively umount certain partitions/drives. But as most users probably use only one drive this should work for the majority.
Note: Sourcecode modifications are directly forwarded to the individual maintainers and can be retrieved using their scm's or their bug trackers.
Can I upgrade to Kong from Mega?
Yes you can through web-gui, Do a nvram reset after update.
DD-WRT v24-sp2 (04/11/11) vpnkong - build 16774M
but it seems the usb port on the router is DEAD
when i put in a HD no LED's flash
a USB stick also no leds or anything
im sure its not the drive or stick sisce i tested them in a "normal" USB port
i did the 30-30-30 reset but no dice
i want to do the OPTware install thingy but then i really need the USB drive
surfing the boards for is VERY timeconsuming since the info around is fragmented to say the least
i went for this KONG mod because this said USB support was enabled by default AND it was succesfully tested on a WNR3500L
but it seems the USB port is simply dead
anyone have any tips?
or (preferably) a working configuration?
firmware type and build??
Hello! In updated version from 20.04.2011 OpenVpn works simply blazing
USB printer support doesn't work at all. In you previous firmwares everthing was great!
Hi, I want to try this firmware but I prefer the original asus RT-N16, it is possible to add miniDLNA server to original asus firmware 220.127.116.11?
I hope that works to stream videos from usb drive connected to my router to my samsung LE32C550 tv.
Does this firmware have the Dual WAN support?
Hi Kong, is it possible or impossible with the E3000 to move the Privoxy portion into the DLNA version? I think it would be a huge improvement for more users that are initially switching to your build. I use Pixelserv and I can tell Privoxy would be a good solution.
would it be possible to add 3G-modem support to your mod? It would be the killer mod for me then.
I have been trying for two weeks to get DD-WRT V24 to build from source. I am targeting the WNR3500L. My build system is 64 bit Unbuntu 9.10. I have downloaded the current toolchains from DD-WRT.com and source code but cannot get it to build. I have followed the "tutorial on building DD-WRT" with no success. What build system and toolchains are you using? Can you give me any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
Does this release support ipv6 ?
@Kong: Sounds like a deal. Give me until mid-July and you will receive your own RT-N16 to keep. I will order my own so we can test it too. Thank you...
I just bought a netgear 3500L which runs your mod perfectly.
I have another old router, WRT54GS v2, which has Broadcom BCM4712 @ 216 MHz 32 MB 8 MB, I am wondering if I could flash you mod on it since it meets the requirements.
Already googled, no results.
Searching online led me to this link and I would like to ask you if your kong mod will work on my generic router.
The details are as follows:
CPU Model - Broadcom BCM5354 chip rev 3
CPU Clock - 240 MHz
RAM: - 32 Mb DDR
Flash Memory: - 16 Mb
running DD-WRT v24-sp2 (12/24/10) mega - build 15962
Right now, the unit is acting as WAP with 2 BSSIDs, one for my internal network and another one for public (I am broadcasting my internet for students who wants to connect to the internet for school works). SNMP is running and is linked to odmon.com for monitoring purposes.
Your inputs are highly appreciated
More power to you and this website
It's only to:
Netgear WNR3500L, Asus RT-N16, Linksys WRT610N V1/V2 and E3000 special fw
Does Kong Mod support IPv6? I have it selected in options but Vuze displays only IPv4 connection status as OK. When I bypass the router and go direct from my PC it does show IPv6 as active and connected, so I know my Vuze config and my ISP supports it.
Is it because the router itself (Netgear WNR3500L) lacks this ability?
Enquiring minds need to know...
I think DD-WRT or a developer even, could implement native IPV6 support like Victek's Tomato displays. However, you can use radvd.conf and all the other manual script options that the following method uses to eventually come to a conclusion if you do some research.
This is the easiest method without using the ISP to setup IPV6 (since your ISP may have special requirements). It is with a tunnel on this method, but I agree IPV6 is better through the ISP. Hope this helps give some ideas...
Thanks Jondlou, that script worked like a charm! At first I thought not but I restarted Azureus and IPv6 was running fine. I do use OpenDNS but couldn't figure out that OpenDNS instructional on the wiki page. If I set my router to "Use local DNS" everything stops working - both Internet and local network even though I had all the other settings already as you specify.
Thx for the latest 17462, works great and the new wifi drivers seems to have fixed a lot of the wifi issues I had previously.
This seems like a winner, congratz.
I can confirm working USB / Samba / fast responsive connecting to other wifi routers on 17mw or 128mw "repeater mode" no problem.
Totusoft "lan speed test" has this results:
Usb memory card adapter with 8gb micro-sd Topram class6, Fat32 "LBA"
[code]Lan cable from xp32sp3 to RT-N16
Packet length 20,971,520 20,971,520
Time to complete 7.2582144 3.2739365
Bytes per second 2,889,350 6,405,598
Bits per second 23,114,800 51,244,784
Mbps 22.0439911 48.8708344[/code]
Config = USB = default,
Samba = enabled, disabled, empty, workgroup,/tmp/mnt/disc0_part1, 8gb, yes, read/write.
Routername = RT-N16, hostname = elvis
Wifi signal strength @ 1 inch quick test:
L C R
128mw -40dBm -44dBm -30dBm
228mw does not seem to make a difference over 128mw
00:00 .... mac address for wl0.1 reported by both android and xp32 sp3 wifi connections / metageek insider and so difficulty connecting to the wl0.1 virtual_ap as a results of this using wpa tkip or tkip + aes, wpa2 same.
Repeater wl0 works fine as it has a correct mac address for both client and repeater with wpa security.
Android works fine with 00:00... mac address and WPA2 tkip+aes but not in wpa tkip+aes 00:00... mac address.
Upgraded from win7 ultimate to xp32sp3 so can not test win7 performance anymore.
Maybe win7 can deal with 00:00.. mac addresses better ???
Thanks again, keep up the good work.
Could you please add samba vfs modules.
Right know I use samba from optware installation which has vfs modules, but if there is enough space left in the firmware why not add the vfs modules. (fyi: I use vfs dirsort)

On which device ?
Well I had not updated my Kong firmware for about a year so I did so a few weeks ago. From what I read my result is not typical but I lost _all_ port forwarding completely! Nothing I did would help... settings, 20/20/20 hard reset, etc. I finally installed an older firmware and immediately everything started working again. Thing is, the old firmware worked perfectly. I only upgrade to see if something was improved.
Just throwing that out there.
