    Hi All!

    Not a complete newbie but I don't dink with stuff that works<G>

    My WRT54GSv2 router has been happily running HyperWRT Firmware Version: v3.37.2 - HyperWRT 2.0 forever it seems and has given me NO problems. Went MONTHS between re-boots (possibly years since I have UPS on the network)!

    Now I find it is giving me fits: shuts off the network every few days for no reason: no network at all, wired or wireless so I decided to reinstall the firmware.. I have long since lost the old copy and was hunting for the latest and greatest but am kinda lost with all the options. It was easier when there were less choices!

    Simple network: five, sometimes 6 desktops wired, four sometimes five laptops wired or wireless, VIOP on occasion (Skype/MJ) Video calls (Skype/SightSpeed), lots of net surfing by the kids. Nothing drastic needed: no FTP needed, etc. but I love the power control and other features of the firmware.

    I read all about Thibol but seems no longer an option (well an option but no longer supported) so can you guys please steer me in the right direction? Tomato? Thibol 15c, DD, ?????????

    Thanks MUCHO!!!
