    Is there a complete list or a comparison chart for all the firmware versions for the WRT54G?

    I just snagged one of of Amazon (Had a GC I needed to use ) and am not really UP on what is best for this box ... Im hesitant to use ANYTHING that comes directly from Linksys (I have a BEFSR41 -- And I've been through enough bad firmware in my day) ...

    I figured OpenSource was the way to go !!! ... So, can someone send me to a list of features or make a recommendation for me ?

    SCREENSHOTS of these other firmware are GREATLY appreciated!

    I have the same question

    <<bump>>

    Being a newbie to the mods, I have the same question. Is there a comparison between firmware projects?

    TIA,

    Re: I have the same question

    Currently we are working on one, but given the many projects, version of each, and developers to contact, its a long and drawn out process. If anyone would like to help out, please contact either Toxic or myself through PM and we'd be glad to get your on board!
