The one newegg selling are NOTDD-WRT compatible. Most of us received v8.1 and no DD-WRT support since May 2012.

OpenWrt IS available for v8.1 (and other versions), including codel QoS support to reduce latency/bufferbloat. Note 841N and 841ND are the same hardware, but the D version has detachable antennas. See recent TP-Link WDR3600 threads for more details about codel and bufferbloat.

(firmware link is specific for V8.x but other versions available as well if you get one).
Wiki page: http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wr841nd (note links in the wiki are to older versions of OpenWrt, but instructions are the same)

Gargoyle firmware support for v7 and below, but not yet for v8. Support for V8+ will probably come in a future update to Gargoyle. Gargoyle is basically OpenWrt with a simplified user interface.

I got this router from newegg last time they had it at this price. I use stock firmware and it has been working great.

Which dd-wrt file are you using for this router? I don't see it in the database [dd-wrt.com].

OK price, but I'd caution folks on buying any N product that doesn't operate in the 5Ghz band.

Why? Virtually every wifi enabled device and appliance is only 2.4GHz anyway. Yeah, 5Ghz is fine if you're talking about a desktop, but few manufacturers offer 5GHz capable devices (HDTVs, internet radios, wifi-enabled thermostats, you name it). Even some high end products like the Apple iPhone, iPod, and iPad (at least the older versions) don't provide 5GHz access.

So while I agree in principle that 5GHz offers an advantage, it's one that few can enjoy. For all practical purposes, 2.4GHz remains dominant and impossible to avoid no matter how much you'd like to consider 5GHz.

I got this router because of the reviews, to set up a (budget) longer range connection between house and calving shed for some relatives. First router I've ever had to return. Worked fine for a few minutes, then both wired and wireless would stop connecting, resetting didn't help, just did it again. No doubt it's decent at this price, I just got a dud.

I picked this router up last time it was at this price, hoping to get a version that was DD-WRT compatible. I received a version 8.1 which as far as I could tell isn't supported yet. If I am mistaken I would like to know which version of DD-WRT works with this router.

eibgrad, I disagree with your 'virtually every device' statement. My 2 year old cell phone is 5Ghz. What I'm getting at is for a few bucks more you can get out of the congested 2.4G space as you upgrade your clients with 5G capability. With your mentality you'd be running a 'b' AP connected to a 10Mb hub.
