    Here's what I have - put it together and forgot about it - seems to run fine but should I upgrade and if so to what? Saw a thread where the author, Zarate (not the murderer) seems to have gone dark.

    USB support integration and GUI,
    Linux kernel and Broadcom Wireless Driver updates,
    support for additional router models and Wireless-N mode.

    You don't really need to upgrade if everything is working well and you don't need any new features.

    You're actually running the the USB version that teddy_bear (Fedor) worked on before he left as well. Go ahead and compare the three current builds (Victek, Toastman, and Shibby) and their features in their own threads, but I've found that for pure stability Victek, if he has a build for the device (and he does for the N16), has never let me down.

    Thanks for the info. I've downloaded the file and saved it with my network documentation. As I have no real problems I may stall for a while before upgrading but it seems that I started to play with some of the functions like attaching a hard drive and ftp but never got anywhere so maybe I'll investigate those functions again with this build.

    Since you are several builds behind, if you do decide to upgrade, make sure you do NVRAM erase and reconfigure by hand and not from saved config file.

    Well there have been quite some updates from the developers here, and from the developers of the included software (dnsmasq, busybox, dropbear and so on). Some of them are security related, so you should keep your router updated too.

    The main difference has been the updated QOS system, that works much better than the one you are using, and the addition of per-IP traffic monitoring facilities.
