    I've been using sveasoft alchemy 1...

    Ok, it's alright - but I can't get some stuff to work the way I want.

    First, when ever the QOS is 'working', meaning that there are packets being marked, etc., bandwidth tests from my machine (the only premium device!) seem to suffer badly. ....

    Second, I can't get MRTG to report both UP and DOWN for the separate QOS queues.

    Third - Help is non-existant, and not so newbie friendly either....

    Fourth - stuff just 'happens'. Example, I enabled a l7 protocol blocker, and wall watcher logging stopped. Nothing being reported but 'router messages' like time synch, etc.

    fifth - the 'l7' access control filters just don't work.

    So, can someone tell me the pros/cons of the other firmwares and which ones might work WELL for me?

    man Forget Sveasoft Go with DD-WRT. Brainslayer fixes bugs unlike James.

    Thank you for the reply... any thoughts on how DD-WRT would meet my stated needs?
