    I have a question how to use 10.xx IP addresses. IS there an advantage to doing so? If I remember correctly, they are not routable over the internet. What are the pros/cons of doing so, and how would I implement them if I'm running DD-WRT v23 SP2 (09/15/06) micro - build 3932 on my WRT54G v5?

    Thanks!

    No pros or cons it wont matter to your equipment one way or another. Yes you are correct they are non routable over the internet and all you would have to do to change your router is change the lan ip and dhcp range.

    Are the 10.xx addresses more secure than the 192.xx's?

    No, ip's are ip's what makes them secure is the equipment or software thats protecting them, i.e. firewalls,ips/ids,access-lists/restrictions etc.
