    that's like asking the difference between an egg and a car. they are completely different. Hyperwrt is simply an extension of the stock linksys firmware. it uses the original gui and has extras built into it. Openwrt is a completely different animal. it is configurable from the ground up to be able to do pretty much anything you require a router to do, as long as you are comfortable with the command line(although there is a basic web interface). Basically openwrt is for people that know what they are doing, and Hyperwrt is for the average set and forget user, although you may wish to read about dd-wrt too.

    OpenWRT is user-friendly, but it's considerably more picky about it's friends :)

    OpenWRT is the cat's meow if you are a CLI Linux-type that loves to hack out little odd projects. If all you want is a PhD interface (Push here, Dummy) then it's not the best choice.
