    I just upgraded from Tomato 1.17 to DD-WRT V23.

    The file I used was dd-wrt.v23_std_generic and I did a straight upgrade through the Tomato upgrade firmware page in the router webpage.

    This is from the Generic Broadcom Device section.

    However, once the firmware was flashed, I had to do a hard reset to get the device fuctioning. ie. Hold down the bottom pinhole button for around 1 minute.

    Once that was done, I was in DDWRT.

    Just right now (30 minutes ago) I took the plunge and upgraded o V24, file used was : dd-wrt.v24_std_generic

    So far works good.

    The SVG graphs in Tomato were nice, but for some reason my router wasn't too happy with Tomato.

    Will most probably go back to Tomato once they iron out their bugs. Prolly 2-3 more revisions till I move back or at least check them out again.

    I forgot to mention that I am using a Buffalo WHR-HP-G54, but it should be exactly 100000% the same for your WRT54GL.

    I have a WRT54GS V2 and bounce back and forth between DD-WRT and Tomato as new versions are always coming out on both. I only use the HTTP update procedure and always do hard reset (button in back) after flash. I find that both the Tomato and DD-WRT latest versions are great firmwares and tend to be very stable. I use open vpn and PPTP vpn, WPA2 wireless, but have yet to use WDS on either (need two routers and I only have one). Hope this helps.
