    Hi guys, i just recently got a wireless router of the model stated above and am very new to this stuff. Its a WRT54G v.4 with the fireware 4.30.5 loaded in it. My router was ok and working fine until i realised after a night of downloading on Bittorrent, the router 'lags' in the config page and the internet slows down a lot. After some searching around, i found out that the problem lies with some packet loss or POS and the only way to solve it would be to flash a third part firmware into it so that i would not suffer from these packet losses. I then searched for the HyperWRT page and wanted to dl and flash the firmware into my router but on the page it only says it will work for v1 v2 and v3 models. So is there anyway, with my router version and firmware version that i can load HyperWRT into it? Sorry for noobie question as im really bad and new to all of this.. Thanks !

    the default settings are perfectly adequate for me to run BT 24/7 without dragging my entire network down. you may wish to turn qos on and set Bittorrent port and Application to low priority, and http/https and dns to high. that's about all i have to do when i set up.

    sorry for noobie qn, but what is DNS and https(seen http but nvr seen https b4)? and why did u set your BT to low priority? I thought if u set it to low, BT will slow down as all the bandwidth will go to other programs or net surfing?

    dns=domain name service, https=secure http
    bt is set to low so that it CANNOT hog all the bandwidth which it otherwise would do. web surfing should not be slowed down just because p2p is running, the p2p should be slowed down if there is a need.
