    I'd like to upgrade to DD-WRT on my WRT54G v1.1, but I don't have the time to track down bugs. I just need something that works, and that's why I've stuck to the Linksys firmware until v23 was released.

    I'm not bashing DD-WRT or its developers, as I can tell from the other posts they put out quality products. Basically, I wanted to know what the masses thought about the state of the v23 firmware.

    The poll is set to run for 14 days.

    It is probably better to look at Bugs tracker list.

    Your list does not have sufficient choices. From my point of view all basic Linksys features are working but there are some bugs in web interface that can affect configuration. Technically features are working but you might have troubles configuring the router correctly.

    I have tested most of the basic Linksys features and so far so good.

    I did test a few of the DD-WRT additions and the one I really like is the mac address QOS.. This one works wonderfully. :thumb:

    I voted "Not Stable" even though I actually think the firmware is fairly stable. I feel like I had to vote for this because of the issues I've been having with WDS.

    If I setup my 2 routers to use WPA PSK and set it to use TKIP+AES, then WDS will not work. If I set it to just TKIP, or just AES it works fine. I have absolutely no problem in v22-r2 so I honestly don't know what is happening.

    Except for this problem, the firmware is perfectly stable for me, but unfortunately this one is a deal breaker for me right now so I've reverted back to v22-r2, and voted Not Stable.

    That's not what he means by "not stable". That's more like the "Stable with all basic Linksys features (DHCP, MAC filters, DDNS, etc) working" choice since WDS isn't in the default Linksys firmware AFAIK.

    for now all works without a problem (1 wired and 1 wireless (wpa2) client, i use the dhcp server and some port rules , it's up from 4 days, 5:33)
    and so, now, i vote for a 100% perfect version :cheering:
    perhaps there are some bugs, but luckly at the moment i haven't found any :thumb:

    I vote "Not Stable" because, the connection was broken suddenly. After 2 hours the first time and 4 hours the second time. Emule fonctionning. I lost the connection and Messenger restarting.
    Not possible to have a High ID after...
    Reseting the router was the only way to get a High ID...
    My router is a WRT 54GS V4 - Linksys Firmware 1.05.03
    If It can be useful...

    Ummmm... the poll is for DD-WRT. If you are running the native Linksys firmware, then:

    1. DD-WRT or one of the aftermarket firmwares can probably fix your problem. P2P is a known problem on the native Linksys firmware, and most of the aftermarket firmwares allow you to fix it.

    2. You should not be voting on the quality of DD-WRT, since you aren't running it (yet).

    Iam sorry but the deconnection problem
    is under DD-WRT firmware; The V23 final.
    Iam not under linksys firmware...

    if you use emule. ensure to set your max connection setting to 4096 and your udp/tcp timeouts to 300 each. otherwise emule floods your router full of unclosed connections and after a while the router will not respond anymore since the limit is reached. this is a emule protocol design flaw and not a dd-wrt problem

    yes and in that post it clearly states

    If you are having issues with the standard firmware as well, then I would deduce that your router is at fault and not the software.
