    My poor little WRT54GL has been neglected for to long. 15C has not been updated for way to long and I need to move on. I loaded DD-WRT and it is all going well.

    I like Thibor's version better, but the WRT54G/GS/GL series of routers have been left behind. I know there have been statements that work on this older router series will being again, but how many months, dare I say years, do you expect to take? After all, there are many more of WRT54 series out there than the WRTSL54 series that has been receiving all the attention for months.

    I will keep my eye on Thibor because I like truely like and admire all the work that was done on it. And I will return to it if things begin to move on supporting my WRT54GL again.

    This is not a slight, by no means. I understand that this development is done out of love and is a spare time thing for Thibor. And it is basically his own use and he is sharing what he is doing with us. Believe me when I say that I truely appreciate his sharing.

    Take care,

    RandyO <---- who is watching and waiting...

    afaik Thibor is waiting for the SL scource code to be upgdate by linksys. he will apparently then update the SL code. once he has that he will use the code (less the SL features) for the WRT54G/GS/GL models to update that, but really there wont be much change to 15c afaik.

    Don't bail out just yet, Thibor will surprise us with an update...... :)

    If it works for you, why the pissing and moaning about updating, just for the sake of updating? Thibor is a great piece of work and when I used it it was complete. I moved up to Tomato for the features I needed, I still have plenty of wrt's running the old 15c, and probably will for a long time yet. If you need some feature, fill us in? and if you're really hot to update or get some feature, build it yourself and share....

    While I would love to see something newer than Thibor15c for my WRT54GS, Thibor15c has been working great! But then I don't use the wireless part of my router at all so my needs may be much different than most.

    I have tried DD-WRT and Tomato. but always end up comming back to Thibor15c for one reason or another. And the only thing I have noticed in Thibor15c that needs updating is the daylight savings thing...

    Linksys has released WRT350N source code recently with the fixed Vista access USB storage device. I am planning to grab the source code and try to put samba parts in Thibor17rc3's samba parts to see if it will working. I won't be surpised if I will have to tweak it a bit.

    As others have said, unless you need additional features needed by Tomato, Chilispot, etc, then be happy we have a solid, stable firmware for one of the best routers around.

    I'm back at 15c!

    I hope so. The reason I went to dd-wrt was because upnp keeps getting lost on 15c. A reboot of the router fixes it.

    But, when I went to dd-wrt23 sp3, i started having issues with PCs not getting IPs and my laptop (which has intel wireless mini pci) couldn't associate EVER! I tried to upgrade to the latest 24 beta but the upload didn't take and I thought I bricked my GL. After many trials and tribulations, I was able to load the stock firmware and then migrate back to 15c.

    Whew. That was strike 2 with dd-wrt. Tried it a while ago with issues. It is just too slow with issing IPs... and what's up with the Intel cards? BrainSlayer says it is an Intel driver's fault, but 15c and stock don't seem to have issues.

    Tally Hoe hoe hoe

    Have you tried Tomato ? ;)

    Stop picking on Thibor! He just bricked his 1001st router and is not happy.

    My only issue with 15c in the uPnP. It wont stay running on the router. I have a WRT54GL. It just wont stay up more than 10 secs if I can get it up and running at all. Everything else with 15c seems to work dandy.

    Any ideas?

    Like danix71 said, try Tomato. It's unbelievable, and was just updated about 3 days ago. uPnP has never given me an issue, nor has anything else, ever. I'm a former Thibor15c user, and I just like Tomato's UI and stability better. Then again, that's just my oppinion. Try it and see if that fixes your problem.

    I'm not saying Thibor's firmware is bad, I'm just recommending a possible solution to switching to Tomato as it doesn't seem you've tried that yet.

    From my 1 day experience of trying various firmwares on my new router and testing how QoS works... DD-WRT's QoS s*cks :thumbdown: I did everything to give CSS "exempt" priority and Azureus "bulk" priority, and I got better pings in CSS compared to no QoS, but they still were 100+ ms. With default Linksys firmware and "Optimize for games" checked or with Thibor configurated it's around 50 ms. So I'll stay with Thibor :biggrin:

    All I need is stable router and working QoS anyway.

    I haven't been around much lately, work has had me buried. Since Carl and I worked on 15c and the SL version, there hasn't been much development. I was thinking of taking 17rc3 and adapting it for the GL (stripping out the code for USB, samba, etc).

    IMHO the current SL code is the most stable and clean. We put a lot of work into it. Yet a couple issues still exist, which may be minor, or a deal breaker depending on your use.

    1. File Timestamps.
    2. Vista and Samba.
    3. DDNS (forced update).
    4. DST.

    Sometime in the future, they may or may not be addressed. But for now, its pretty damn good.

    I'd rather see something for the 350N (v1). I don't care about Vista or Windows as I run Fedora. I'm running a custom build of ddwrt but I hate it. I always preferred thibor's firmware on my old SL.

    Really damn good, I think!!! (And would be PERFECT with the above fixes--although I imagine pretty tough until linksys updates the code for the vista/samba issue.) I so very much appreciate the work that you both have done on this project. It's this firmware that keeps me using this router instead of one of the new draft n models.
