TL;DR - My router was giving me issues and now with installing dd-wrt, I am a happy man

Well, we have this router, a Linksys WRT54GS v2, and it was such a pain in the a**, since it kept disconnecting us, not connecting to the internet, and turning off it's wireless automatically. Well, I was like, hm, are there any other firmware I can use, so I googled it, and sure enough, found Sveasoft (freeman basic) firmware that supported my router. It worked for a little while, until it started refusing wireless connections every once in a while, and yesterday night was at it's worst. s**t. Well, I downloaded dd-wrt, read it's wikis, started the process, sent a few commands over telnet (don't judge me, it was just a quick way of doing things), and sure enough, it started working. And boy, do I love the interface. Even better, I had no problems from it so far by resetting the router (it even went back to the page after resetting automatically, without me having to reload the page every 5 seconds!), forwarding ports, and now, today, am going to test if it will stop bitching about a game I play (Project Blackout), and if it will allow the game to connect to the internet normally, instead of disconnecting it after a minute.
I am a happy man.

***completely ******** off topic***

I ******** love your signature. That is all.

lol dd-wrt. Personally, I don't see any reason to bother upgrading to it on my rig, because if it comes down to it I can just filter all my traffic through my computer on a second scope, or run a VM and filter my traffic through it.

My signature is pushing the limits (500 exactly in length lol ), and I love that owl.

Eh, I decided to upgrade to it ever since that other default firmware started being a whore and not letting it connect to the internet via DCHP, so I was like, ******** it, might as well get some new firmware. I got that sveasoft freeman basic firmware, and it was alright, until it started disconnecting like a whore it is, so now here I am, praising dd-wrt for doing such a good job.. for now.

I think it is b/g/n, I just have to check (unless of course, you did the homework, and saw that the router is not b/g/n, in which I would tell you that you have too much time on your hands, but okay.)

The Linksys WRT54GS v2 is a b/g router, it predates even the pre-N hardware. You can tell because the model name: WRT (Wireless Router) 54 (54mbps) G (802.11g) S (SpeedBooster feature).

Also, anyone involved in the alternate router firmware community is intimately familiar with the WRT54G series of routers. (I spent a couple years developing custom firmwares based on OpenWRT.)

Oic.
Well, I'm kinda new to the firmware world, unless typing lots of if and while loops for the Arduino is one of them...
I really would do some research, but my PC got taken away, and I really get only like 30 minutes on the library PCs. Besides, that sorta stuff makes my brain hurt.. until I actually start my research marathons (which usually last 3-9 hours), which won't be easy when even at your freshman year they barrage you with lots of busy work.
-sigh- I really need to get a PC.
Anyways, thanks for the info.
