These routers come in different versions. You should have a separate page for each version. Some versions are compatible with custom firmware, some are not. It is nearly impossible to tell which version you are getting when ordering online or even when you are trying to buy it in the store. There is no indication on the outside of the packaging wrt what version it is.
