    I am with an ISP that only lets you use their router. I have found out its not DD-WRT compatible, but still wish to run DD-WRT. I was wondering if there was any "mini-box" or a device that can be connected to my router to let me connect through DD-WRT anyway.

    Anyone have any clue about any device that would enable me to do this? Thanks.

    connect a dd-wrt router to the one your isp provided, in essence using latter as a modem.

    I recently got the Buffalo Airstation N300 Giga and it came with DD-WRT pre-installed. It seems like a good quality device and since it comes with DD-WRT you don't have to bother with flashing. Don't know if it's available in the UK though.

    Not from the UK, so... Is the Cable/DSL modem packaged with the router? In the US, you can stick anything you want, after the modem...no way to tell. But yeah, just add another router. Asus RT-N66U has gotten very good reviews. They say DD-WRT capable, but the stock firmware has gotten very good reviews at smallnetbuilder.com.

    PD
