Is this a leased router? From what I gathered any model version ABCD can be flashed. However, there are some serious things you need to know. The wiki for this device is here. What exactly are trying to achieve and gain by DDWRT?
Snap of wiki...
Those are some serious negative points and reasons not to flash DDWRT to this unit.
1. All units Coax is not functional. Meaning the modem part of this router will not work. The unit will function only as a router and you will need a separate modem.
2. With rev A models the wireless does not function as it has a unsupported radio, but the radio can be re-soldered with one that they do support??
3. Rev C & D wireless is fully functional. Since you believe yours is Rev A that is a big hit & you will have no wifi.
4. Reading further into the wiki if by accident you brick the unit, your only recovery would be a JTAG method of recovery and out of all the units rev D does not have a JTAG for recovery.

I own the router; bought it from Verizon. My vpn provider uses DD-WRT for their preconfigured routers. I wanted to save money by flashing my current router with that firmware and apply their settings myself. But considering my revision is more than likely A I'll just buy a router from PIA. Thank you for the response.
