DD-WRT Firmware: v23 SP1 update

In a previous post I described upgrading my Linksys WRT54G router to DD-WRT V23 Firmware (VPN Version) which provided the features and capabilities of a $600+ router. This upgrade was performed without incident and has performed very well since. It’s allowed me to control my home traffic and establish a QOS that prevents P2P or on-line gaming traffic from interfering with normal http browsing.

This weekend I upgraded the Linksys WRT54G firmware from DD-WRT v23 (VPN) to DD-WRT-v23 SP1 (VPN) which added more features as well as increased performance and reliability.

DD-WRT v23 SP1 is free and there are forums, documentation, and a wiki available for support and installation. v23 SP2 is listed for sale for 20 eur on the DD-WRT website. However, at the moment I’m more then satisfied with this free version.This DD-WRT firmware upgrade is not only available for Linksys routers but many others that are also based upon Linux. Below are the devices that are currently supported by the latest release of DD-WRT:

* Allnet
