Wireless Router Advice
details
Need some advice here. I share internet with my mother-in-law who lives one house down in a row home. She has internet and I have Hawking 300N wireless repeater. She use to have a Linksys WRGT 54G, but I want to get a new one. I purchased the Belkin N300 which reached my front porch and the Hawking repeater took over for the most part. Since the Belking N600 DB was only 30 more bucks, I bought that once as well to test it out. Now the 600DB has 2 more antennas for the 5GHz band, but the repeater... Read more →

I have two of these (a V2 and and a V8) running dd-wrt in tandem to carry my wireless network across my entire apartment (it's long and narrow).
details
They live at opposite ends of the apartment - one connected to the modem, the other repeating and bridging to my office PC. The bridge repeater brings the wifi network signal up to full blast, no matter where in the apartment I am. All the hype surrounding dd-wrt on the WRT54G series is absolutely warranted. Upgrade yours ASAP.

Tunnel to SSH Server with WRT54GL+DD-WRT?
details
I've got DD-WRT v24-sp1 installed on my WRT54GL. Can anyone tell me if its possible to connect to an SSH server with this? What I want to do is route all traffic via an SSH server I have access to. I can do it by running a client on each PC (Putty), but is it possible without running a PC client? Does DD-WRT have an SSH client built in that can do this? I tried going into the command window and typing "ssh -y my_login@my_server_ip my_password" but I got some error about the... Read more →

9.x rating?
details
I'm not posting this to just bitch, but have that many people had good luck with this router? I read the post in the support discussions about needing to reset the router, which seems to be a common issue. I own a V6 of this router and have experienced this issue very frequently even after putting DD-WRT micro on it. My biggest complaint is under heavy load (one or two well seeded torrents), the unit will reset on its own or require a manual restart every five minutes. So with this problem,... Read more →

Custom firmware
details
I bought a wrt54GL to supplement my aging wrt54g. Not enough ethernet ports, and decided to put a wired directional antenna 30 yards away, pointing at a poolhouse 50 yards away from the point of origin. I am running tomato firmware on both, with amplification turned up. Any other suggestions for a better custom firmware, or a good wireless n router with external antennas, capable of running custom firmware.
