    Recently tried hyperwrt (changed from sveasoft), are there any Docs for the software? Trying to get info on the "filters" on the security page and other options.

    I'm new to HyperWRT as well.
    As I understand it, you can get the manual from:

    http://www.hyperwrt.org/

    However, the the manual section is currently not available.
    When I checked a few days ago, this section was "under construction".

    Expect them back online in about a month :)

    the help file with the firmware (click on more shows this as the dicumentation for this page.


    Firewall Protection
    Enable or disable the SPI firewall.


    Block WAN Request
    By enabling the Block WAN Request feature, you can prevent your network from being "pinged," or detected, by other Internet users. The Block WAN Request feature also reinforces your network security by hiding your network ports. Both functions of the Block WAN Request feature make it more difficult for outside users to work their way into your network. This feature is enabled by default. Uncheck to disable this feature.


    Filter Multicast
    Enable this option if you do not wish to receive multicast traffic that is sometime sent by your ISP.


    Filter Internet NAT Redirection
    This feature uses Port Forwarding to prevent access to local servers from your local networked computers.


    Filter IDENT (Port 113)
    Prevents outside intruders from attacking the router through the internet using service port 113. Select Enable to prevent attack through this service port. However, some applications may require this service port to be available. If needed, uncheck to allow those applications to work

    the other filters you have listed will do the same, enable,disable blocking of the listed features.

    The power transmission is set at default..50% on the Hyperwrt linksys 54G. How high should you turn it up to.

    I've got mine set on 83% (67mW). I've read elsewhere on this forum that you probably shouldn't turn the power up beyond that for a couple reasons (1) it will likely shorten the life of your router and (2) as you increase transmit power the signal gets (dirtier) such that even though you have a stronger signal it may still have trouble connecting due to the noise in the signal. Best advice I read was to increase the power one step at a time and stop when there is enough signal strength for a consistent connection. If you power it up all the way and still don't have a good signal you may need to either build a reflector to help (search for antenna reflector in this forum) and/or upgrade your antennas. Hope this helps. I'm no expert, just passing on what I've read and learned.

    I was thinking of setting up a Wiki for the manual. That way everyone would be able to add/edit the documentation.
