    Now that DD-WRT supports WRTSL54GS, I cannot seem to find any info on how DD-WRT enhances the WRTSL54GS. This router is a different animal than the WRT54GL because the WRTSL54GS has a USB port used to connect to an external harddrive or flash stick. With the stock Linksys firmware, I read that it can be used as an FTP server just like the NSLU2. Actually, I am not sure what is the difference between the NSLU2 and the WRTSL54GS outside the fact that the WRTSL54GS is also a wireless router. At this point the WRTSL54GS costs just a bit more than the NSLU2 so that begs the question why buy the SNLU2 over the WRTSL54GS.

    What I have been hoping for since the days of SNLU2 is that some third party firmare like DD-WRT adds web serving feature to it. So does DD-WRT for the WRTSL54GS add a webserver to the device?

    Thanks for the link.

    Can you confirm that DD-WRT supports WRTSL54GS?

    Yes, I know that but it the wiki also says "WRTSL54GS v1.0 (as of 2006-0630 nightly builds" I just do not know what it means. Does nightly builds mean alpha or beta code?

    it is supported yes, but no official USB/ftp support as yet. the ddwrt firmware is just like the WRT54G/GS firmware.

    Does that mean after I have put in the DD-WRT firmware, it would not recognize the USB drive?

    If you want most of the features of DD-Wrt, plus retain the USB, Media Server, FTP etc., try Hyperwrt/Thibor 15c. I am running a web server from it with just a small startupscript.
