    WAP54G - DD-WRT vs Linksys firmware

    After seeing various threads about DD-WRT -
    http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page
    I can see how a more robust feature set would be useful
    in a full blown wireless router config like the Linksys WRT,
    but what about just running the micro version
    like my Linksys WAP54G v3.1 access point ?

    Almost all of those "useful" features in DD-WRT are on the router side
    of the puzzel. The WAP54G v3.1 is an access point, which lacks a
    router section. About all you'll get are the basic wireless settings,
    some additions to encryption, and some alternative authentication
    schemes. It works, I've tried it, but features wasn't what I was
    looking for. It was that the WAP54G v3.1 has a few problems. I was
    getting lockups and hangs every few days. It also won't do WPA
    encryption between two WAP54G boxes in bridge mode. There was also a
    bug that prevented accessing the admin IP adress from the other side
    of the bridge. DD-WRT fixed most everything. However, the hangs are
    still there, but far less frequent.

    before blundering onward.
