    + Additional Filters (Jave/ActiveX/Proxy/Cookies)
    Options to Block Java Applets, ActiveX, Cookies and Proxy in Security -> Firewall.
    I beleave these features also are in older linksys routers.

    + Wireless Client Table
    Probably the coolest one. You will be able to see which wireless clients are connected and which were connected in Status -> Wireless

    + Long/Short Preamble.
    In Wireless -> Advanced Wireless Settings
    Only needed if you must set this value manually (with older wifi adapters).

    + Policy Type
    In Access Restriction -> Internet Access.
    Linksys added the 'help' for this, but forgot to add the feature.
    Not sure if it does actually work...

    can you add a function :DHCP with static MAC->IP assignments ?
    I think that is really useful and most router supports it.

    Firmware Download not there?

    Dear Avenger 20,
    Thanks in advance for fixing the signal strength on the WRT54G. I had been having trouble with my Cable connection and couldn't figure why I suddenly could barely get reception across the room when it used to be strong all over the house. Turns out it was two unrelated, coincidental problems. My problem now is that I'm not getting your download. When I click on the link it just cycles back to the home page. What's up?

    Don't know if I will add static dhcp.

    If you need it for portforwarding, qos, ... you could just manually give all your pc's an IP. It's pretty much the same, not?

    Okay, dumb question. Or maybe not, as some of us don't have our routers sitting on a desk. Which antenna is right and which is left?

    Good question.

    The first compile I did I made left-right as you were facing the leds, but I noticed all other firmware (wifi-box, sveasoft, ...) had it the way around.

    So I just followed them and made left-right as you are facing the antenna's.

    What?! Left/Right when facing the backend of the router?!!

    I had always taken it as facing the LEDs. Not quite of what I had in mind when thinking about which is left and which is right. I'd better change it back :oops:

    Thanks for the info [​IMG]

    You did an excellent job on the firmware! :D I found out about your firmware on Aug. 6, and used it successfully without any problems. I tried all the other firmware mod versions by other groups and I decided your version was the best. The others had nice features that I would have liked to see in yours but I chose QoS simplicity over their version of QoS features.

    There is one slight problem that I can see so far with your version. The "Filter ActiveX" option only seems to work intermittently when I go to sites like www.cnn.com that use ActiveX. I have my Internet Explorer set to block ActiveX and it pops up a message when a site tries to run ActiveX. That error message doesn't pop up as much with your filter but it does do it.

    Keep up the good work!
