    For security purposes, I'd like to switch my public IP address regulary and was wondering if the WRT54g (V2 FW 4.00.7) supports this.

    I am using this with a DSL modem (in bridged mode) and have the linksys configured for PPPoE. I have a dynamic IP address.

    I'd appreciate any recommended configuration/firmware.

    with ur DSL service, I'm guessing u have a westell modem connected which doesn't really matter, but to change ur ip regularly like you want, you would either have to set the router to disconnect during inactivity, or manually disconnect and reconnect regularly.

    I do have a westell.

    I know other routers do the switch automatically, say every hour, and internet disruption is minimized. A friend of mine has a cable modem and a belkin router, and he is able to get a new IP and the only way he knows that he's lost his internet connection is with an ipconfig.
