Freeman to DD-WRTv23 upgrade.

    I currently have Sveasoft Freeman on my WRT54Gv4 router. I am mulling over the posibility of switching over to the DD-WRT v23 firmware. I have a few questions:

    1. Do I have to install the DD-WRT mini version first? Will I lose all my existing settings on doing so?

    2. There are several versions of the firmware. I use VOIP at home (I have a Sipura 3000 ATA box). Does that mean that I should use the VOIP version of the firmware? Or does the VOIP version apply to some special version of the WRT54G?

    It is likely that you will have to install the mini first. Yes, although it is possible that some of the settings you have may be retained it is recomended that you reset the routre after upgrading the firmware. The VOIP version is not hardware spacific, it has optimizations forVOIP.

    I did exactly that.
    Had Freeman before, and now enjoy DD-WRT v.23 (mini)

    I totally cleared out all settings and flushed the nvram, coz I found my WRT54G v2 to become very unstable with Freeman.
    There were reports over a memory leak in crond, amongst others.

    With DD-WRT it works like a charm, although the changed web-interface takes some getting used to, and credited, it takes a while to set up all the changes.
    But once thats done, its rock-solid.
