    I have to say linksys router is great router with the pre-load firmware full of bugs. But good thing is they open source, so there are so many third party can write firmwares on that router, including HyperWRT, Sveasoft, wifi project etc.
    I try to consolidate different level of user and put my suggest to those developer. Some of information I reference from Sveasoft web site, hope people do not mad on me. :=))

    I think Linksys WRT54G/GS third party firmware should look like this:

    1. Basic version -- all function from pre-load linksys;

    2. Family version -- all function from basic, plus:
    a.Two way Bandwidth control (Qos)-- for P2P, IM, ftp etc..., basing on Eth. port;
    b.Stronge Voip support -- Should support most of Voip vendor in current market;
    c.Access control -- including P2P blocking
    d.More Antenna select --
    e.Startup, firewall, and shutdown scripts --
    f.Morel DDNS support --


    3. Smalll business version -- all function from family version, plus:
    a. Hotspot portal;
    b.SSH client and server;
    c.Telnet;
    d.WDS repeater mode;
    e.Client mode (support multiple attached devices);
    f.Adhoc mode;
    g.OSPF routing;
    h.RIP2 routing;
    i.Power boost to 251 mw;
    j.Static DHCP address assignments;
    k.Wireless MAC address clone;
    l.VLAN support (hardware only);
    m.WPA over WDS
    n.WPA/TKIP with AES
    o.Client mode WPA
    p.Client isolation mode
    q.Remote syslog
    r.Remote Ntop statistics
    s.Safe backup and restore



    4. Enterprice version -- all function from samll business version, plus:
    a.PPTP VPN server;
    b. Wake-On-Lan;
    c.SNMP;
    d.Remote NTP server support

    btw, about pricing

    I will think Basic and family version should be FREE.


    Smalll business version & Enterprise version can be chargeable.

    Shouldn't Static DHCP be in the Family version?
    I think even some novice users would want this function.
    It is also easier to implement than 2-way QoS.
    And if you want DDNS for hosting a webserver, you probably want Static DHCP too.
