Anyone here tried upgrading their WRT54G router to the DD-WRT firmware? Are these firmware stable?
Just done it myself and is using the DD-WRT v23 SP2 firmware. It's super cool, can even overclock my router's Broadcom chip! Awesome!
overclock ? lolz.. whats do you get from overclocking a router ? :O
linksys's own firmware supposedly did that too in one of the versions to resolve stability issue. from 200MHz to 216MHz. LOLz
Good for you, its damn bad luck for me.
I just bought, just today, a brand new spanking WRT54G, wanted to get GS or GL but can't find any. Well I thought that might do, brought it home, configured everything, downloaded DDWRT and checked my version number, i'm using version 7 !!!! DDWRT supports WRT54G version 1 - 6 and of all, i'm using version 7 which is not using broadcom chip, definitely a waste of money !!
With DDWRT, many things I could do, boost my WiFi signal, IPv6, and many more which is essential to me !!!
Now, i'll just have to stuck with a normal wifi router which does not differ much with that of a cheap Aztech or Dlink wifi router.
I got a buffalo router which is based on the same chip. I want to flash it but a bit scared to ruin it. should I do it or not.... decision, decision.
Hmmm, What i did was by a 2nd hand WRT54G router to make sure it was a supported version. But I feel sorry for you man.
If it's compatible... it's worth the switch to DD-WRT. Superb firmware!
I have a new WRT54GL but haven't tried flashing 3rd party firmware yet. I guess I should
Everyone should switch to this http://openwrt.org/
i think ddwrt is a bit more up to date than th open wrt. I read some nice thing about the ddwrt but the firmware flashing seems to be a bit buggy and flashing seems a bit difficult with the buffalo route.r
