    Just a question.... when a router gets flashed with DD-WRT, is it still limited to the original WiFi hardware in the router? For example, if the router was a Wireless B or Wireless G router can DD-WRT firmware convert/upgrade it to a Wireless N router?

    So is there a way to hook it to a radion g4 to connect wireless instead of buying the controller or plugging a usb directly to the light?

    Check out tomato too, I am an IT guy by trade and always have a DDWRT and Tomato router on me for various reasons. I setup a friend with a Linksys for his time share, with DD-WRT to use as a WAP.. He gets free wifi, but its only password protected. He was not able to setup any url blocking for his children and that is very important to him (Strict dad, love it). Also set him up with a OPENDNS account. If you are in need of blocking any type of traffic, OPENDNS works fairly well.
