Looking for Linksys/DD-WRT replacement for UK BT HomeHub3 router

    I have a WRT54G (v31.) running DD-WRT v24, which I recently used to replace my BT HomeHub3 router.

    I am on BT Infinity broadband (in the UK) and on average use about 180GB data. I am interested to know which devices on my network are using data, so wanted to use the DD-WRT rflow capability, with ntop on my Ubuntu laptop.

    Everything works fine, but I get the inevitable 'router slow-down'; adjusting TCP/UDP timeout fixes this, but then I get frequent disconnections (not great when using Netflix!) and ntop then doesn't give me accurate data usages. I guess the WRT54G can't perform like the HH3! (I now have the WRT54G linking the HH3 to the rest of my LAN, but I'd rather not have two routers when one should suffice.)

    So, can anyone recommend a good/suitable Linksys router (with or without DD-WRT) than I can use to replace my BT HH3 so that I can monitor LAN performance and data usage?

    Thanks in advance - Steven.
