For the WRT54GL 1.0 and 1.1 is the same, but the 1.0 needs to have the Linksys firmware updated to 1.1 before flashing DD-WRT

Here's all the info you need for picking a router and finding the binary to flash it with: http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv3/dd-wrt/hardware.html
----------------------------------------------
I forgot to mention this, I found an interesting script on the DD-WRT wiki, it flashes the Cisco light on the WRT54G/GL/GS acording to the CPU load avrages, I modified it a bit so now it flashes the white LED one time at >25% load, white LED two times at 25% load, orange LED three times at 50% load, and solid orange LED at 100% load.

Just copy and past that into your startup script and reboot your router.

Quote:
#!/bin/sh
gpio="gpio"

amber=3
white=2

delay=3

meltdown=400
overload=100
highload=50
medload=25

while sleep $delay
do
set -- $(cat /proc/loadavg)
load="${1%.*}${1#*.}"

if [ $load -gt $meltdown ]
then
$gpio disable $amber
usleep 50000
$gpio disable $white
usleep 50000
reboot
elif [ $load -gt $overload ]
then
$gpio disable $amber
usleep 50000
elif [ $load -gt $highload ]
then
$gpio disable $amber
usleep 12500
$gpio enable $amber
usleep 12500
$gpio disable $amber
usleep 12500
$gpio enable $amber
usleep 12500
$gpio disable $amber
usleep 12500
$gpio enable $amber
usleep 12500
elif [ $load -gt $medload ]
then
$gpio enable $amber
$gpio disable $white
usleep 25000
$gpio enable $white
usleep 25000
$gpio disable $white
usleep 25000
$gpio enable $white
usleep 25000
else
$gpio disable $white
usleep 50000
$gpio enable $white
usleep 50000
fi
done

What exactly does DD- WRT firmware has that Linksys stock firmware doesnt ?

And what does Tx and rx mean on the router ?

Tx is transmit, RX is receive.

DD-WRT adds, bandwidth logging, QoS, wireless bridging, Overclocking, dynamicDNS, control over connection limits, spying on your neighbors, increasing transmit power, speed increase, remote mangement, some services for hotspots, telnet/ssh, Xlink Kai server (xbox tunneling program for free xbox live like service), live bandwidth monitoring, VPN connections, internal virtual networks, scripting support (Firewall), and more...

so really dd-wrt firmware is an overkill for someone who just wants wifi enabled? you mention "spying on your neighbors" how so?

also link you gave i entered router info and gave me router detail support by "v24 preSP2 beta build" and then below that gives 8-9 files. im still clueless as to what files should i be flashing with. sorry for the noobness.

lastly to my understanding? if the router is already version 1.1 i wont need to flashed with mini_generic.bin file correct? or would i still need to regardless

For the WRT54GL this is what you want "dd-wrt.v24_std_generic.bin"

No you do not need to flash the mini build if your router is a 1.1

Spying on the neighbors. It is possible to link the router to a Windows folder share and if you install some packages, you can packet sniff and save the packets to a server that's connected to your router.

For your specific router it is not possible (at least for now), but the Atheros based routers with some special firmware can do some interesting things, like having a single router pretend to be any router a computer calls out for and when someone auto connects (default setting in windows) you can capture the packets and dig out the passwords and usernames for example.

DD-WRT is pretty overkill or some, but the ability to boost wifi transmit power is really useful (careful to not kill the chip) and the original Linksys firmware has problems tracking connections and requiring a reboot whenever it hits the limit. QoS is an interesting feature that takes some time to configure but in the end will make small internet connections be able to handle a lot more at the same time, (Gaming + VoIP while downloading on bittorent for example).

Warning OC'ing ove 40mw(IIRC) will burn out your chip even though the software allows OC to like 200!

It has been. It's listed as DD-WRT Router Compatiblility Search.

Nice find, Darkknight! I added a link to the OP.

I've put 115 mW through mine, and it's been fine. Granted, I've got a heatsink and a fan on it, but I've never experienced issues with overheating. I've heard that a TX power boost up to about 85 mW is safe without extra cooling.

Find your router's exact model name or number. Then, consult the DD-WRT Router Compatibility Search to determine if your model can accept DD-WRT.
