Default Linksys WRT54GL

Well I just got a Linksys WRT54GL as someone was kinda enough to give me an oldish laptop with Wi-fi and I didn't have a wifi router. Would you recomend that I put Tomanto or DD-WRT on it. I have read up on both but can't decided or shoudl I give each a bash? for a time.

Ive been using DD-WRT for awhile now and its pretty awesome and easy to use. I use it to run my WRT in client mode.

Some use Tomato (myself), others prefer DD-WRT. You can't really miss with either of these two.
