    Hi
    Just wondering if anyone has got the FC40 to Bridge over a DDWRT router? I've been trying to use a Linksys router with massive failure.
    I've followed various instructions and it just will not have it. All I get is 'camera not found' at best!

    Hi there. Yes, I had trouble with this too but eventually got it sorted after following a set of vertyexplicit instructions posted by dragonash into this thread (page 7)

    viewtopic.php?f=20&t=6866&hilit=linksys+ddwrt&start=60

    Having said that - I did well with a ddwrt router for a while but eventually switched to an fpv setup with cloverleaf antennas and it works really well out to 500m with a nice degradation, not that locking out nonsense that the dji camera gives.

    Good luck.

    That's exactly the set of instructions I followed and it fails! Shame!
    I suspect problems with the router rather than the instructions now!

    If you want a router I'll send you one, pre-configured. I used to have a WiFi business and have a few spares. Happy to post to you. Just email me to damian at glenavy dot com
