View Full Version : WRT54G and DD-WRT v23 SP2

Anyone use the DD-WRT v23 SP2 firmware with their router? I am thinking about trying it because I found out you can limit each connected pcs bandwidth usage which is something I've been wondering how to do for a while.

I'm actually using OpenWRT as I find it a little more functional on more hardware, DD_WRT is a fork of OpenWRT. The webif2 for OpenWRT also makes life easier.

You're talking about QoS, something I'm actively using to shape my traffic here for my mailserver/webserver as well as shaping my upstream.

http://www.openwrt.org and http://x-wrt.org/ (they have firmware builds with the web interface).

I'm also using tcpdump with netcat on OpenWRT to listen on ppp0 and redirect it to snort running on my server.

I'm using a Buffalo WHR-G54S with OpenWRT installed.

I loved DD-WRT in the time I had it on my WRT54G-S router. I had the rev 1.0 hardware, so I could run the full version, and it was amazing just what all I could do with it. But then the router kicked the bucket, and because new Linksys routers are crippled, even the WRT54G-L, I went with a different brand.

I say go for it dude, but make sure to follow the instructions specific for a Linksys router. Don't want to brick it on your first try :)
