    Thanks to everyone that helped me out deciding to keep with my WRT54G v2.0.

    I am really new to all of this and I am not really sure which firmware version I should use: DDWRT, HyperWRT, Sveasoft, and so on.

    Thanks in advance

    The best response to your question is not an answer, but another question. I know it seems round about, but each of the firmware solutions have their strong suite.

    What matters is what feature set are you looking for? Is there something not included in the default Linksys firmware that you'd like to be able to use?

    From there we can help you out on picking out the firmware thats right for you - geez, I sound like a car salesman.

    Things I Want

    Well i live in an apartment so security would be nice
    Ability to control speeds for VOIP would be nice but it is my roommates so not that really important as I don't control it right now.
    Ability to boost signal strength and distance so I do work outside a bit.
    And lets face it is a new toy so some fun little tricks and stuff would be nice.
    Stability is important I think, and not turning my router into a paper weight would be nice.

    I a new to this stuff so not really sure of what is out there and what there is to offer. Even a small review and comparison site of some of the different firmware’s would be nice.

    then i think that dd-wrt would suite your needs if you want all the features. but if you want basic then go withhyperwrt. but in any case both of these firmwares would do what you mentioned

    I too have WRT54G V2, I am wondering which firmware is the best one?
    I need one that's stable and can handle p2p traffic (BT, emule) without bringing down the router and other connections.
    The stock firmware simply does not allow web surfing or other types of activities when BT is running.
