    Hi. I'm quite confused about which of these versions is "better". It is my understanding that v3 can be better for WDS due to its components not being integrated but v4 has a stronger radio unit. Why is v4 "harder" to load firmware? It is because of having to load the mini dd-wrt firmware first? Is the difficulty in firmware loading only when dealing with Thibor's firmware? Is there anything else about its firmware that's harder to load? Also, according to dd-wrt, afterburner can be enabled on all pre-v5 models. Can afterburner be enabled when using HyperWRT on v3.1 or using Tofu?

    According to previous posts, v4 is not the one to use if I want to play with lots of firmwares. Is that statement relative to classic "GS", "G", or both?

    I will be running the WRT54g using stock antennas, at least for the forseeable future. I may turn a few of them into APs using WDS. I will also have other non-AP clients as well. Lastly, for WDS, is the maximum total # of routers 4 (1 router+3 APs) or is it 5 (1 router+4 APs).
