      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Linux on your Router or Wireless Access Point

Recommended Posts

I've got various pieces of hardware at home, but sometimes it was a bit annoying from one piece of hardware to the next. Some had more functionality, and some didn't and neither would have what I needed. Then came the age-old problem that sooner or later, no more firmware updates are released by the vendor. Although it's not a problem, because you can always change it. And so, welcome DD-WRT.


Now, my hardware has much more functionality. I'm now running Linux on my router, and will most likely now be able to upgrade to newer DD-WRT firmware as it becomes available. Now, my web interfaces on all my devices are now the same. I have a Netgear WG602v3 and ASUS WL-330gE running DD-WRT and in terms of management, everything is in the same place on both devices. I have functionality that I never had before, and I have some cool features such as showing me the quality of wireless signal.


Outstanding is my ASUS RT-N10 router which I'm looking to upgrade in the near future smile


Some screenshots from my hardware.....

I have this running on my Netgear WNR3500L, my only wish is that it be easier to setup a USB drive to share on the network via SAMBA. Other than that, it's much better than the stock firmware.

I'm liking it very much, my hardware has been so much more reliable now since the change from the stock firmware.
