it should still work .. you have to make sure your router is compatible. did you add the mac addresses ?

As far as I know, xlink kai is not longer supported for routers (look at the official page). I have an asus rt-n16 and I couldnt find a way to make xkai works on it.

just to revive this dead thread, incase anyone is interested, the only thing wrong with kaid in newer versions of dd-wrt is it requires uclibc, thankfully we can get this easily by simply installing OTRW (google it) then you can add this to your /etc/init.d (name it something like S85kaid) and chmod 0755:-


[ -e /tmp/kaid.conf ] || exit

if [ -z "$1" ]; then
    case `echo "$0" | sed 's:^.*/\(.*\):\1:g'` in
        S??*) rc="start";;
        K??*) rc="stop"

case "$rc" in
        echo "Starting: $NAME"
        touch /tmp/kaiEnginePersist.txt
        chmod a+w /tmp/kaiEnginePersist.txt
        /usr/sbin/kaid -c /tmp/kaid.conf
        if pidof $NAME 2>&1 >/dev/null; then
            echo "Stopping: $NAME"
            killall $NAME 2>&1 >/dev/null
        "$0" stop
        sleep 1
        "$0" start
        echo "Usage: $0 (start|stop|restart|usage)"
exit 0

Hope this helps someone, it works perfectly now - FSD can see the engine again and online play without a laptop is once more possible smile.gif

you need to load kai on your computer to have a UI .. if your using an older XBMC build or the 360 dash with kai built in you do not need to open it on the computer. the router is the engine.

Having the old copy of XBMC in addition to DD-WRT works 100% without the need for a PC, correct? Or do you have to do Chrisoldinho's workaround no matter what?

Here is my version of DD-WRT:

DD-WRT v24-sp2 (10/10/09) std
(SVN revision 13064)

The whole OTRW thing sounds a bit confusing.
