An interesting post about DD-WRT crossed my inbox awhile back. Like most interesting things I saved it to look at later.
Custom firmware, such as DD-WRT makes the process easier, and provides you with a lot of additional options as well; thereby turning a standard $100 router into a super router that is suitable for any home or office.
With this DD-WRT router guide you’ll be increasing your wireless range, data transfer rates, creating NAS solutions, setting up a VPN Service, and so much more in no time at all. Some of these, you can even implement without having DD-WRT.
Don’t have the time to read all of this today? I’d recommend at least reading the introduction so you can find out what this “DD-WRT” business is all about.
