    i google'd SYN cookies (new feature of v1.23), read the wikipedia entry as well as the first 2 links that come up under the google search, and I still found myself scratching my head wondering if I should enable this or leave it disabled on my tomato router? anyone have a better opinion??

    I agree with your confusion. I'm not particularly worried about a denial-of-service SYN flood attack against my tiny server. But then again, SYN cookies looks like a cheap and relatively simple solution to the problem.
