    - watchdog for client mode and wds
    - stability fix for Linksys WRT54GS v1.1+ and WRT54Gv2.2+

    Web interface?

    Do you have any screen shots of the web interface?

    Thanks for the quick response. Looks very promising, I may give it a whirl on one of my spare units. What I'm really interested in is the availability of an ipsec server on the wrt54g that can use other units to connect as clients. Is this possible with this version?

    Yes, we have Openswan available for install. You will probably have to mess with the scripts and write some config files for it, but it should work.
    Don't expect more than 2-3 MBit/s performance, though. The CPU just isn't up for serious crypto stuff...
