Be careful about the wrt300n.

The port  forwarding screen reads awful!

See below for a mail i sent to BCAB re this.

I haven't had answers yet.  So Steve if you have this model help!

Subject: [bcab] Linksys WRT300N interface, want DDWRT

Hi all,

I sent this to a networking list I'm on. Thought I'd throw it over to here
as well.

I'm still around, even though i haven't posted in ages. Just been busy with
To my email.
I took delivery of a Linksys WRT 300N during the week and started to config
it today.

I've used Linksys for years. and have always found their web utility works
with my assistive technology.  (I use screenreaders to access the Windows
platform and Linux platforms).

I run servers at home and was starting the process of opening ports for
them.  Something's happened to the web UI on this model of router!

It seems to have some badly formatted table for the ports, and IP's,
protocol entrys.  The form fields arent' aligned correctly.

There's also badly placed drop-down boxes for selecting the type of program
you are opening ports for.

I upgraded to the latest firmware for the router and was quite annoyed to
find that, "More usable" as per the linksys.com sites description for this
firmware upgrade didn't apply to screenreaders or any web site/web apps
interfaces for accessibility!

I've used the ddrwt firmware before on a WAG300N and a WRT54G router.  I
found it quite a nice piece of third party firmware, which seemed to read

NB.  The Linksys firmware for all other models of kit including repeaters
I've used in the past reads fine. Especially in the port forwarding section
of the web utility.

I ended up looking at the DDWRT Wikki.  I cant' seem to find a direct
download link for my router though. I see that it says the latest supported
release is beta 24?  However, I can't seem to locate links that let me
download this.

I did download,




Neither of these the router would accept as valid upgrades.

Can anyone help with either a description of the port forwarding section's
table layout and how the drop-down boxes apply to the fields or help me
locate a direct download for my router?

Thank you very much for any and all help on this.
