Follow these instructions and your wireless router will be running dd-wrt software in no time.
Below I will provide instructions on how to update the My Location setting for both an IPhone and an iPod Touch and while the iPod Touch requires a bit more work both are fairly simple considering all of the functionality that will be available to you again through the My Location setting.
