View Full Version : WAP54G - DD-WRT vs Linksys firmware
After seeing various threads about DD-WRT -
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.
