Do I even need one of the 3rd party firmwares?

    If I can get a pre v5 router, I will get one and use one of the 3rd party firmwares that are out there. But maybe I don't even need one and would be just fine with a v5 off the shelf...

    THe only feature I want to use is QoS. I have SunRocket as my VoIP service for home and want to just be able to set is so that if I'm downloading and uploading a hure torrent or something, that it doesn't mess with the phone.

    Can the QoS support that is in the v5 handle that? Or does it really suck and I should definitely get an older router and put a different firmware on it?

    I don't know much about how QoS works or the different options it has but this is all I want to use it for is this one application.

    Well, my router shuld be arriving any day. Anyone have any comments on the Linksys Firmware's QoS support vs one of the others?
