    I am a long time user of DD-WRT, and Tomato. If your a hardcore network guy, use DD. DD better for Repeaters, complex networks, multiple SSIDs, tons of options. If you need awesome throughput, the best QoS, and the least work to configure and suport, use Tomato.

    Should be able to run tomato if you have a 5352...Use 1.16.7z for a Linksys...

    For DD don't use release candidate 6.2. Bad news... At the time of this post use RC7-9068 NEWD http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/down.php?path=downloads/others/eko/RC7-9068/

    Please be advised. Tomato firmware does not support the WAP54G. I dont know about ddwrt firmware however

    Toxic is corect. In fact, WRT are routers and WAP's are AP (Access Points). It's a difference.
    Maybe for your WAP better with HyperWAP (you can read about it through here) or MustDie (here).

    PS: I only read about them, I know a little but I don't actually own one (WAP's). I have instead 2 WRT54GL (Tomato style). :biggrin:
