"Linksys WRT54G v2 Router"

im pretty sure that has 4MB flash memory which means you can run the full version of DD-WRT which is about 4MB firmware file

the standard version im fairly sure is what you want to run.... http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/s...std_generic.bin (although i think you can run mini or micro etc to... but i think the one i listed there in the link is the 'standard' version (which is the full app)

so read up on it BEFORE doing anything to make damn sure everything is cool before flashing.

NOTE: as usual do this at your own risk!

Great, thanks for the link, I will look into it!

i heard good things about tomato firmware.... BUT not everyone can run that especially with routers that only have 2MB flash memory like me (i have a 'Linksys WRT54GS v6' router running the 'micro' version of DD-WRT) cause 4MB is needed to run Tomato etc etc

DD-WRT was the reason I moved my lazy ass from Windows ICS and bought a router (Buffalo WHR-HP-G54S), but moved to Tomato Firmware on the third day. Tomato has advanced QoS settings options for VoIP and my bro’s gaming. Best part it restarts individual services rather than rebooting the whole router. Plus the bandwidth and traffic graphs are really useful.

If you really want to have fun with third party routing firmware then Asus routers are the way to go. Asus WL-500G Premium to be precise which I couldn’t find in lousy Dubai.

Now they just need to update their wiki page of supported hardware. My router was supported and installed fine, got it working, but the performance was horrible. It needed to be restarted almost daily and that was with a fresh install and cleared NVRAM.

if your running P2P software... you might need to adjust the ports and timeout settings cause the default will almost for sure act up. goto 'Administration > Management' tab and adjust where it says 'IP Filter Settings (adjust these for P2P)'

try something like maximum ports = 4096 (thats what i used) and TCP/UDP timeout = 300

p.s. i posted in the news section about this a few days ago already.... here, http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=637995

Usenet is my only traffic other than HTTP and FTP. Like the commenters in #3, I have moved to Tomato. My problems went away right after I switched back to it after trying DD-WRT again. Tomato is a great firmware and the bandwidth logging/graphing is a great feature. So are the QoS features, it is the best one I have used so far.

bandwidth graphing stuff is in v24 of DD-WRT now but i aint sure about logging cause atleast in the Micro version of DD-WRT it just logs traffic by day and you can view stuff on the router itself but i dont think it has any option to output to a text file on the pc or anything.

but about the QoS stuff.... as far as DD-WRT it just seems to make stuff overall worse than better as far as i can tell... cause what i want it to do is make it so i can play games without killing my ping and and all it seems to do is just overall lag the router/connection down as far as i can tell... so i just turned it off.

but then again my connection is only 384k dsl (40KB/s up/down)

does Tomato offer a way to limit bandwidth to a pc on a per pc basis? ... cause that would be great if i could cap certain pc's to say 10KB/s so it would not effect my ping when gaming... but atleast with my router that cant happen cause like i say all i can run is Micro version which fits onto the routers 2MB flash memory.

but if i had a 4MB flash memory router i would probably give Tomato a try

I do believe you can specify QoS to a computer. I have never done it because I run my Usenet client run on about 4 of the computers in my network. I have it set up to allow the Usenet port to pull up to 4m of my connection and my PS3 can take the other 3m if I am playing online.
