    I put DD-WRT 2.3 SP2 micro on my WRT54G v6 (or maybe it's v5) without really understanding why I flashed it with micro?

    is it because only micro fits on v5 & v6?

    if true, then if I wanted to run the standard, VOIP or VPN edition of DD-WRT i'll have to eBay for a v4 or lower version of WRT54G or buy a WRT54GL? Is this correct?

    Yes starting with V5 only micro works. As to the second part of your question i would recommend just saving a bit more and getting a VPN router. Ideally something that does SSL vpn but something that has been built on a platform to perform vpn functions (a router that has hardware vpn support). Granted there quite a bit more but you will be happier in the long run. Just think about if from this point of view, you have a router in the wrt series (especially the v5,6 and 7) that can baerly support their current functionality let alone introducing any kind of encryption (which is very cpu intensive).

    good point

    but is it true i'll need a v4 or lower version of WRT54G or buy a WRT54GL if i did decide to run DD-WRT standard, VOIP or VPN?

    If you stick with linksys yes, but buffalo and several others will also support that firmware.

    WRT54G ver. 6 question

    I have been doing a lot of reading but it still leaves me confused
    to what DD-WRT firmware and where to find it along
    with the step by step instructions how to install it.
    I have been to the DD-WRT site but just can't find what I need.

    All I have found up to this point is I think I need DD-WRT micro.
    Not sure what in addition I need to install it and where do I find

    One of my goals is to hopefully improve the performance. I find my
    older Linksys 802.11b router to be much faster with the wired connections.
    It also doesn't need resetting as often.

    The other goal is to be able to use the router as an access point.

    thank you for any help
