LXer: Released: DD-WRT v23 Final for Linksys WRT54G (and others)
 
Published at LXer:

DD-WRT is a 100% free firmware for the Linksys WRT54G/GS (http://www1.linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=33&scid=35&prid=610) and the Asus WL-500 deluxe (http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=12&l2=43&l3=0&model=359&modelmenu=1) 802.11g wireless routers (which run off a minimalist Linux OS). The firmware is maintained by BrainSlayer (mailto:brainslayer@braincontrol.org) and is hosted at dd-wrt.com (http://www.dd-wrt.com/). The first versions of DD-WRT were based on the Alchemy Firmware (http://www.wrt54g.com/) from Sveasoft Inc (http://www.sveasoft.com/), which is in turn based on the original GPL'd Linksys Firmware and a number of other open source projects. DD-WRT exists as a direct result of Sveasoft's demand for $20 in order to be able to download their firmware. The newer version(s) of DD-WRT- v23 (currently in beta development)- are a complete new project. DD-WRT offers many advanced features not found in the original Linksys firmware, or even firmware purchased from Sveasoft. It is also free of the product activation or tracking found in the Sveasoft firmware. Digg Story
