Trying to put D-Link DIR-615 C1 in Repeater Mode

I just recently upgraded my home router from a 615 to a 655, so I thought I would use the old router as a repeater bridge at another location.

I read that the DD-WRT firmware offered a repeater bridge function, so I successfully flashed the 615 C1 with the latest release 7/12.

I get all of the configuration steps, and even have set up client bridge mode. My problem is when I bring down the list of available wireless modes, repeater bridge isn't on the list.

Is the C1 version not able to do this? Or, am I doing something wrong, or is there something else I need to do to enable a repeater bridge?

Yes, that's the exact guide I'm using. I was able to do everything it says, but Repeater Bridge isn't one of the options.

I think I understand reading that the v24 version of the firmware had the Repeater Bridge broken,so I plan to reflash an older firmware to see if it appears.

Otherwise, do you have any other suggestions?

Having the same issue with DIR-615 C1, no Repeater Bridge option.

Did you have any success in figuring out how to setup?

Does the C1 Revision support? and if so, which Firmware is needed to get the option.

Same issue.

I've installed DDWRT on the DIR-615 but I don't see any option to change it to repeater when I go into wireless basic settings though I can see the option to put it into AP or client mode for example. I also don't see the Network Configuration : Bridged option.

This is on ddwrt 14896 for the DIR-615 C1 router.
