    Subject: V23 SP1 final is near
    So far everything goes well we will release the next version v23 SP1. in the last days i thought a little bit about a version numbering change since SP1 contains many new features and again a cutting edge webgui which was improved in the last days.
    noteworthy changes:
    - live RSSI/NOISE and SNR statistic
    - less memory consumption for supporting low memory devices (SE505)
    - official Buffalo WHR G54s and WHR HP G54 support (my replacement for the unavailable Linksys WRT54G/GS/GL)
    - ACK Timing setting support
    - improved HTTP performance
    - new UPNP configuration window
    - browser compatiblity enhanced (including IE7 and Safari)
    - Autoformating of installed SD Cards with EXT2 (sdmod)
    - improved help pages
    - http username support (default is "root")
    - New CPU Overclocking features (use with care and at your own risk)
    - Enhanced Site Survey
    - New Etherner driver which should solve many problems
    - Save settings improved (does now automaticly refresh the settings page)
    - New P2P Catchall feature which allows blocking of all Filesharing services with 1 click

    and many uncounted enhancements and fixes (for more details see changelog)

    DD-WRT Hardware Support Notes
    Note: Please read the flashing notes relevant to your hardware.

    1.) DD-WRT supported/tested router hardware versions
    Router: Serial Number prefixes:

    Buffalo WHR-HP-G54S
    ASUS WL500G-Deluxe
    Motorola WR850G --> see flashing notes below
    Siemens Gigaset SE505 --> see flashing notes below
    Ravo W54-RT --> see flashing notes for SE505 v1 (identical to SE505 v1)
    Askey RT210W --> see flashing notes for SE505 v1 (identical to SE505 v1)

    2.) in addition there is untested support for:
    Buffalo WBR-G54

    3.) Linksys WRT54G/GS (any version except v5.0) flashing notes:
    -For upgrading from the original Linksys firmware, please use the generic mini version (dd-wrt.vXX_mini_generic.bin) and flash it from the web GUI interface. After this first flashing you can change to any other distribution, if you want.
    -For flashing via the web GUI interface, always use the included 'generic' binaries. The other Linksys router specific binaries are only meant for tftp upgrades.

    4.) Motorola WR850G flashing notes:
    -Just use the dd-wrt.v23_mini_moto.bin for initial flashing of the motorola device using the boot wait state.
    -WARNING: Never, and I say never try to clear the nvram by the mtd utility. (mtd erase nvram). This will also delete your hardware MAC adresses which aren't stored in the CFE like in other routers.
    -DD-WRT itself prevents this if a Motorola router is detected, but the commandline mtd utility can still brick your router in this case

    5.) Siemens Gigaset SE505 Flashing notes:
    -For flashing the Siemens Gigaset SE505, you have to use the dd-wrt.v23_mini_generic.bin with boot tftp on
    -Since the Siemens default settings do not fit to the Linksys/dd-wrt settings you must additionally check your configuration details after flashing.

    I have been following SP1 since its beginnings in January. It feels snappier and more responsive than the 23 final.
