To dd-wrt or not...

    Originally had wifi-box.net's firmware, then recently went to Sveasoft Alchemy.. both of which kept me quite happy.

    Wifi-box.net was good, but nothing new for a while, and some features I needed were lacking.

    Alchemy was a major step upwards in options and Wireless performance. Some features changed, others added.

    But, like a day after I upgraded to Alchemy (reluctantly, because to keep truly current, I would have to pay, unlike with dd-wrt where I could donate to support his efforts), I came across dd-wrt. Now I am asking myself if I should have gone to dd-wrt, and the feeling I am getting is that it would be an improvement over Alchemy.

    Is this the case, or is it just hype?

    Should I wait until v22 goes gold? Or should I use the prefinal versions (I have 4 and 5. :) )?

    I am VERY happy with the current product, its direction (Away from the Sveasoft roots), itrs performance(wireless, memory util, file system design and use), its features (you use what you need)

    I especially appreciate the developer involvment. His move to the OpenWrt build environment insures the code base and modifications will be around for a while.It insures that others can EASILY build product based on this environment..

    FInally, I appreciate that the current project accepts input (commnets, suggestions, code), does not tell us consumers to go %^& ourselves and does not ask for anything in return!!!

    Load it up (May 18 pre-final 5 build) if you dont like it, put whatever else you may want on your router. Enable features one at a time and see how they work, see if you will ever use them, tweak what you will use

    What do you have to loose - certainly NOT $20

    It depends upon what you want to get out of a firmware...
