You know you’re a geek when you decide to upgrade your Linksys Router from it’s standard OS to a linux kernel. But, I just did that- and my router now runs DD-WRT.
The instructions to upgrade my WRT54Gv5.0 worked like a champ!
Given that it’s only been up for a few hours, it’s too early to tell if it is any better. The administration console is definitely more advanced and a bit better for me, so I do like that. Also, there is this setting to supposedly increase the power for the router’s signal. I’m hoping that will increase connectivity range; but so far, the tests are inconclusive.
Definitely cool, however.
