    Install one of the micro generic release candidates--> v24

    The v24 has many more features and is quite stable. If micro do not cut it try the mini, if mini is not good enough, try standard.. if you need vpn, try vpn edition. or voip, try voip version. I use micro, less memory consumption.. To be safe, first flash with micro, then the standard or any other version if this is your 1st flash. If all else fails, try tftp.

    v23 standard vs. v24 mini

    I'm currently using v23_sp2_standard on my WRT54GS (v2), but don't see a _standard for v24. If I install its _mini version will functionality be downgraded?

    Thank you for your Help.

    I want the DD-WRT for more Signal-Range.
    It is possible to higher up the signal with this firmware, isn't?
    Is it n normal menu point? or how can i change it?
    @ sjk Do you make an update to micro before you install v23 sp2?

    I followed the installation instructions on the DD-WRT Wiki but don't remember the exact details anymore. You could also check there for information about the "Xmit Power" setting (found under Advanced Wireless Settings in the UI), which might answer your questions about signal range.

    Note the WRT54GS V1.1 has 8Mb Flash 32Mb ram so has a wide range of possible 3rd party firmwares based on Linux - no need for fancy flashes of the bootloader to remove VxWorks. The OP just needs to be careful to follow the instructions with the 3rd party distributions - any of which have transmit power selection AFAIK! - but don't forget this doesn't improve the ability to receive - better antennae do both!
