    Hi all,

    Had the WRT54GS v1 for awhile now. Been getting into optimizing my connection and tweaking IE, Firefox, etc. Running XP PRO, SP3. Wireless home network with desk PC, 2 laptops, etc.

    Read about how the Linksys connection tracking by default keeps track of old connections for five days, which I belive can slow down the router. And can effect high number of connections.

    After researching this problem for a few days I ended up here and @ DD-WRT, read over the wiki and posts concerning my router.

    DD-WRT seems like the 3rd party firmware i'd like to use, because of the good support for it.

    So I plan to use V24, VINT mini-try that out, then maybe standard. Read all the info on install, 30/30/30, use IE, etc. If you have better versions let me know.

    However I just want to make sure DD WRT will fix this "tracking of old connections" issue, After my reasearch I belive it will. Just want to double check 1 last itme before install.

    Many thanks, M.L.
