    I got my WRT54GL and i'd like to know what's the best thing to do with it to make it perform excellently.

    I know i should search the forums and read up but i dont have the time right now.. .sorry lots of things and appointments, which is why im asking for your help (specially the veterans) on what do you guys think i should do.

    a) what firmware should i use?
    b) what configuration should i make?
    c) etc...

    If it was you who just bought the WRT54GL, what would you do with it?

    Thanks again in advance. =)

    I only had my new WRT54GL for a few weeks. I've been using the HyperWRT Thibor v.C firmware. Its been working great. The features I really like in Thibor is Static DHCP, AfterBurner, Wireless Power adjustment, more firewall protection settings, SSH to securely access my home network from work, ability to only log denied access attempts, Site Survey to help select a less populated WIFI channel.

    I'm using DD-WRT v23 standard and this firmware is working great and very stable. No complains about this one. Every option you could think of is there: Radius, WDS, Power Adjustment, Secure Shell, Kai (xbox), ...

    As soon as I receive my second WRT54G, I'll upgrade it with dd-wrt and I'll begin to play with the WDS mode :)

    Have fun !
