They have some third party firmware for these broadcom based routers. I just installed the dd-wrt firmware, and there are alot more features than the stock firmware. So if your looking for your router to do something special, this might do it. Here is a list of supported devices: http://www.dd-wrt.co...pported_Devices

And the main page http://www.dd-wrt.co...wrtv2/index.php

FYI, if your connection seems like it is dropping after you updated to this firmware, the issue is most likely this: http://www.dd-wrt.co...Router_Slowdown

I changed my settings to:
CODE
IP Filter Settings
Maximum Ports:  4096  (default:512)
TCP Timeout:  120  (default:3600)
UDP Timeout:  120 (default:3600)

It only took me a week to figure that out, and I just shared it for free.

I know just enough to cause the damage, but not enough to fix the problems... I think I'll leave my router alone smile.gif

Hey buzz with this you can boost your wireless connection transmit strength. Might not drop connection as much.
