    Anyone running the latest? How stable is it? I'm thinking about putting it on my router tonight, now that I'm quickly becoming an expert on un-bricking my router. :)

    Well - as far as the 'forked' firmwares go - I would have to say its pretty good. It really depends on what you turn on - the more features you enable, the more processes run, the more memory is used - etc, etc.

    I run it on 2 WRT54G's right now, my internet gateway and a WDS node. I really like the status screen ( you have to enable it under administration->info on start). I use the dhcp reservations, the WDS configuration screens and SNMP. If those features were included in the Hyperwrt - I would stay with that. Hyperwrt is the CLOSEST to the manufacturers code base. ALL of the others forked off their source trees long before hyperwrt was created.

    Thanks for the update. I don't really care if I stay close to the original code, I just want features and stability. Of course, who doesn't?

    I got impatient. Couldn't wait anylonger. Loaded prefinal 3.2. So far everything is working. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Also, does anyone know any good tests to run on it to check stability? Have people had problems transfering big files, wireless connections, etc?

    one thing that i love to do to check for stress on the router is ping the router from different clients at the same time at something like 20mb. or transfer large files or use programs like p2p or realvnc remote desktop apps. try to enable features and use them. and see if that stresses the router. these are a comb of hardware and firmware tests.
