Flashing Belkin APs with DD-WRT without TFTP February 7, 2011

As part of a project to provide complete wireless coverage for a large office building I purchased a batch of 12 Belkin wireless access points. It was decided that replacing the stock firmware with DD-WRT would be a sensible move as it would provide lots of extra functionality. It turned out that the standard procedure for flashing Belkin APs using TFTP was rather hit and miss – it took about 10 reboots to get the first access point flashed!

Fortunately I stumbled across this forum post which described how to modify a DD-WRT firmware image so that it would be accepted by the firmware upload function of the Belkin’s web interface. To simplify this process for the future I wrote a small Perl script which does all the hard work.
