    Hello... I have looked this site over and I am curious where I can find out just what some of the firmware upgrades offered here will do for my home network. I have a WRT54GS router, a hard wire network to four computers, a lap top with wireless card and a Linksys Wireless Music box. (That I hardly ever use because it is so complicated to go through the menus.)
    I run the firewall in the router and operate my wireless network open. (I know that's not a good practice but I live in a semi rural area with no houses close and my laptop won't detect the network out on the street from my house so I figure there is not a great need to secure it.)
    Thanks for any pointers you may be able to offer.

    Look to different firmware if you want to buy a new WRT to extend the reach of your WiFi, if you want to increase the power of the trx to reach a hard to get to area of the house, if you want more flexibilty for organising a Lan Gaming, ...

    If you're happy with what you have, stay with the Linksys firmware.
    If you have an idea to do something different, search and ask on the forums and yes maybe you need some different firmware, but you do need to know what you want to do first...
