I have put together some previous articles on upgrading the firmware on your Linksys WRT600N wireless router using various versions of DD-WRT. One thing I have not included in the articles is the specific DD-WRT download location for the firmware branch that I prefer which is called BrainSlayer. So below is a brief explanation of DD-WRT FTP structure where the WRT600N firmware is located.
When I booted my Dell Studio XPS laptop yesterday I received an error regarding the Wireless Configuration application. I first rebooted to see if it was just a fluke however I received the same error again. Below I describe the error in more detail as well as how to resolve the error by disabling a service that likely is not necessary.
I was doing a dual boot install today for a customer who wanted to dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu linux. I installed the Unbuntu operating system fine but when I went to update the distro some thing was clearly wrong. Each time I tried to use the GUI package manager it would stall and lock up. This prompted me to try with the command line package manager apt-get since the GUI is just a front end for it. Normally command line tools give better error messages so I was hoping for some more detail. Below I show the error and the very simple fix.
