    bit had to tell with prefinal5 as it is updated 2-3 times a week. i would have voted pre5 if it were not for the broken wireless support as it has new added wpa2 drivers.

    back to alchemy until wireless is better.

    I thought dd-wrt 3.2 was nice and stable when I used it, although I think that hyper WRT wins the stability test. pre4 REALLY beond debricking beyond shorting pins screwed up my router(had to return it) No I did'nt do anything wrong either.

    I thought Prefinal4 was really good. The prefinal5 from a bit back wasn't bad either, and I'm in fact using it right now:

    ~ # uptime
    20:00:44 up 5 days, 1:02, load average: 0.02, 0.01, 0.00

    It's stable enough for me, but I am currently using it pretty much as only a firewall since my college doesn't allow wireless access points (that aren't their own) in my dorm. I tried HyperWRT for a bit and it also seemed to be very fast and stable. I've also had Satori running on my home's network with an uptime of the better part of a year. I currently have no reason to upgrade it since I don't live there and can't fix something if it goes wrong. Since I went to college for the year, there have only been two instances of being disconnected from the internet (I have the modem and router on a UPS)...both were because of the cable company though, not the router. I can definitely say that Satori is as stable as it gets (at least for what I was using it for). As long as you don't muck around with your router all the time, you should be okay though...but I know that's probably too much to ask. Most people here are probably the same way. I know I am ;)

    just out of curiosity, why did'nt you like HyperWRT ?

    I dropped HyperWRT because it's a pretty slim firmware and doesn't have all the features to play around with that DD-WRT has. I never had any "problems" of any kind with it. It was just my preference. I also haven't noticed any tangible speed difference between any of the various firmwares, however I don't put too much stress on my router most of the time (non P2P for me...just gaming and occasional file transfers over FTP).
