(D-Link isn't bad, but they're not ultra-kickass either. They're functional, and that's about it.)
I wanted to chime in with regard to DD-WRT. DD-WRT is based off OpenWRT and is in GPL violation for failure to distribute the source code. DD-WRT also uses several money making schemes such as feature suppression in the 'free' version.
