    I'd like to know what is "DD-WRT" because it's not the first time that I see that someone recommed this to another person. Thank You.

    Found a few definitions of DD-WRT

    "DD-WRT is free Linux-based firmware for several wireless routers, most notably the Linksys WRT54G (including the WRT54GL and WRT54GS). It is licensed under the GNU General Public License version 2."

    "DD-WRT is a third party developed firmware released under the terms of the GPL for many ieee802.11a/b/g/h/n wireless routers based on a Broadcom or Atheros chip reference design."

    I use DD-WRT on my Linksys WRT54GS, and have done for a few years now. I highly reccomend it and suggest you look into using it.

    3rd party router firmware that gives you more control and flexibility in setting up your router. It unlocks many features unavailable in the linksys firmware.
