    I have been reading about this type of stuff for a while but am kind of worried that I could mess up my linksys router. Which one of these firmwares is recommended for the somewhat technical user that just wants extra power and flexibility but not soo much that I spend a lot of time fixing it. Are any of these recommended?

    My main issue is the power setting... I would like to tweak it some. Everything else is just icing on the cake.

    Hyperwrt has the least modifications. It has the power settings that you require.

    I appreciate the quick reply... but will the security be compromised somehow by using new firmware? I have to VPN into my job and I use WPA-PSK and all that stuff. I know the new firmwares still do it and all but is HyperWRT any less secure because its not as "tested"?

    Also, can anyone confirm the rumors I have heard that you cana ctually get more than the 54bps throughput and it is adjustable as well?

    What are the limits and common sense things to know on that?

    A dial-up modem is even capable of a throughput higher than 54bps :lol:
