DD-WRT!

  • Belkin F5D7230-4 v2000: not worth losing my LAN ports over
  • Netgear WGR614v5: can’t do
  • Netgear WGR614v6: can’t do
  • Airlink AR430W: xinetd issues. will try again later.
  • Linksys WRT54GL v1.1: works, duh!

installing it for the Linksys was cake. too easy, perhaps, and not challenging at all. flashed using the stock Linksys web interface but it only accepted files up to 3 MB when it could really take more, so (as instructed) I had to flash the mini version of dd-wrt (~2 mb) and then inside the web interface of that (since that has no restriction), flashed the normal (~4 mb) version of dd-wrt.

now I am running it, and testing the waters for the next 2 months before I bring it to school.

coincidentally my Netgear RP614v2 was being a little sluggish yesterday for some odd reason (not number of connections, or bandwidth).. and that had nothing to do with trying dd-wrt, but I guess it worked out.
