    I just read about new D-Link router and i'm seriously considering to replace my Linksys WRT54G V3.1 with D-Link DGL-4300. The main reason for this is that i'm serious gamer and I can't make QoS on WRT54G to work properly. I use latest DD-WRT V23 Beta. Always when someone on local network download from internet while I'm playing, i experience moderate lag. I'm directly connected to the router and I dont use wirelles part of the device.

    My question is for BrainSlayer. Is it possible to implement something similiar to GameFuelâ„¢ Priority Technology on WRT54G that will actually work? The only drawback with D-Link is price. It cost twice more than Linksys.. :(

    but QoS must be enabled

    now that QOS is supposed to work, is it safe to load in place of v22r2 on a mostly WIRED network??
    Will I be able to backup/reload my configuration? Or do I have to start from scratch?

    you have to start from scratch since many vars are changed, also from the meaning. your old config is incompatible, especially the wds and wireless configuration

    Ok, so I have to go and print all my configuration screens.

    I think I'll give this a try TOMORROW - after others have had a chance to report on it.... because I'm really not good at this linux stuff...
