    ... and is buggy as you can read in this forum. If you don't want to experiment than take hyperwrt or alchemy final 1.0 (if you need features like static DHCP, easier Qos etc.).
    I think there will be no alchemy 1.1 and alchemy 1.0 's development seems to be finished.

    I would recommend DD-WRT over Alchemy 1.0 any day.
    Alchemy has been pushed out in a rush to switch to Talisman and Sveasoft never looked back to fix any issues it still has. DD-WRT is Alchemy plus a lot of work and current changes.
    I'd say try DD-WRT v22 and don't listen to the people claiming DD-WRT is buggy - that's mostply Sveasoft fanboy FUD.

    Youre realy funny. What I say is not in your mind and so I am a Sveasoft fan. Burn me down couse i'm a witch! TheIndividual, you seem for me to be dazzled by your crusade against sveasoft and a little bit paranoid. What about free speech? I can like the firmware of sveasoft (same as i like openwrt and hyperwrt) still not honoring sveasoft's GPL violation. But one should be honest and say that sveasoft has made a great work with thair WRT-distribution. And everyone using dd-wrt have to underdtand this. Cause they are all using this alchemy based firmware. So please stop hunting the witches like me.
    I'm waiting for the day dd-wrt becomes stable so i can use it. Because it is based on Alchemy and i like this firmware. But you can read in this forum about bugs in dd-wrt... just look in BrainSlayer's 28 hour of hacking thread.

    Well sorry, it did not mean to offend you. What I said came from my first hand experience with DD-WRT and that is pretty good.
    Obviously I know that DD-WRT is Alchemy based since I was the one providing the source code for it. Also I never said Sveasoft doesn't write good software, in fact that is the reason why I say DD-WRT is better than Alchemy 1.0. By now it has all the same fixes and more, plus some additional features.

    I even tried the new v23 build which is heavily OpenWRT based. Sure this will introduce new bugs and a one-man-project is bound to take more time fixing those. However v22 works rock solid for me and many many others.

    I recently became a little annoyed by all the anti-DD-WRT flames coming from Sveasoft and his associates. It even went as far as making fun of Brainslayer about losing his real life job. Their only argument is "it is based of old buggy Alchemy code" but they tend to forget that he ironed out many bugs and incorporated changes from OpenWRT to bring it to a new level.

    Sorry for reacting to harsh. Did you try the latest v22 build yourself? It works really well for all I tested and you may change your opinion.
    Certainly it is worth to check it out if you're new to the scene and that's what my point is.

    At the moment I use alchemy final on my wrt. It works fine and because of no much time left i will not experiment. the only think i do not like is the speed of wlan: ~1.3MB/s isn't as fast as it should be.
    A realy want to try OpenWRT. It sounds very "sexy" for me.

    What i want is a firmware with only this kind of features i will use. Openwrt and it's package distribution sounds mostly to be such a projekt. With alchemy there is ony about 1MB of RAM free and i'm only running DHCP (static) and DNS.

    As you told, dd-wrt has more features as alchemy does. so there will be less free mem as at this moment.
