+1 for my Linksys WRT54G v2.2, I have to reboot it nearly every month with stock firmware but once I flashed it with Tomato, I don't remember when was the last time I rebooted it.Aske001 wrote: ↑Jan 2nd, 2010 12:18 pm
Why would you want to mess around with third-party firmware when you just want to keep things simple?
Firmware options like DD-WRT or Tomato are good for:
- Last resort alternative when the stock firmware is giving you too many problems
- Messing around with complicated detail settings and diagnostics if you are keenly interested and you have lots of time on your hands.
- Adding optional capabilities that not too many people need (e.g., OpenVPN support on the router).
- Increasing the radio power beyond that legally allowed, if you don't give a fig about your neighbours (in which case I hope you live next to lots of other people just like yourself!)
For the TP-Link TL-WR541G v7 with latest firmware from TP-Link which I am testing for a month now...no problem..so 3rd party firmware is not really necessary if stock works fine.
