    Hello all,

    I have a WRT54G with an old firmware 1.42.3 DE.
    I'm testing with many network things like NAS, IP Cameras, etc...
    So I need more than 10 port range entries.
    And, I want to adjust my WLAN power.

    Do anyone know a firmware, official or unofficial, where all the new features are in, and more port ranges and power adjustment, aso...

    I hope to read good news from you... with download link, a litlle feature list and something about stability and configuration.

    Thanks alot

    basicly yes. but i must warn you that dd-wrt is still in the pre final stages. and is buggy+a little unstable. but that does not mean that u might have problems. just a friendly warning :D .

    i have been running pre 5 on my 54GS v2 for about a few days no real problems. my 54G v2 will not really do as good as the 54GS v2 with pre5.

    Use HyperWRT. It is close to the Linksys firmware and reliable. It has 20 port forwarding slots.. but if you run out you can always make a firewall rule using iptables to forward traffic.

    Yeah when you install HyperWRT, on the Administration Management page you'll see a button called "Firewall". When clicked, a new window will open up that allows you to enter iptables commands. For example, I use this entry to forward incoming traffic on port 81 to my port 80 on the web server:

    Code:
    iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -i vlan1 --dport 81 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp -i vlan1 --dport 81 -j DNAT --to-destination 192.168.1.9:80
    You can use something similar to forward ports like you want.
