What firmware are you using on your router?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been running OpenWRT with X-Wrt for a few months now on my WRT54GS, and I really like it.

Just wondering what 3rd party firmwares you guys are running.

That depends on what you use your router for. I have domain names hosted on my home network, so the integrated DynamicDNS support is great for me. It's one less program I have to run on my computer (which also functions as a web server). I like the interface more, and the logging capabilities are great. I'll take some screenshots.

i like running the DD-WRT generic v24 builds... it has lots of capabilitys that alot of branded firmwares couldnt even dream of offering...

I have the ability to run unix commands within the router to customize it even further... If your linux savvy, you can dl the "firmware modification kit" and install/remove software "packets" as you wish...

I have a custom DD-WRT build that is dirived from the later v24 builds that can run a php server within the router itself...

You can also mod SD mem cards to boradcom based routers like linkys WRT54G/GS/GL and Buffalo WHR-G54-HP and many others, so that you can have more web storage locally on the router itself...

There are many many things you can do with dd-wrt and the ability's that it alows users to do. Theres no real place to start other than to pick a place of interest...

I started at the spot where you can turn your standard linksys router into an AP and scan for wifi and have the WAN connect to a wifi connection, encrypted or not, and use the routing ability's within your LAN...

dd-wrt is all linux based, so if your savvy with shell scripting, you can pretty much do whatever you want with your router.... after its flashed of course...
