DD-WRT FTW!

I am sure this has been posted and many already know about it, but I thought I would mention it again just in case its helpful. Pretty cool stuff! you can get VPN working and the ability to access your home network from off-site is very cool...

Re: DD-WRT FTW!

DD-WRT is nice, but you olny optimize the software in the router, check the 600$ router will actually have no problem working with complex routing tables and truly support more than simple routing protocols.

I found out in mine that i had issues with torrents and more than 200 simultanous connections.

:) but still is a nice project when you have a 50$ router.

With DD-WRT you can set the connections up to a max of 4096:

Re: DD-WRT FTW!

Thanks, ill try it, but i doubt the hardware has the supported bandwidth and memory for that kind of connections.

Re: DD-WRT FTW!

Memory will likely be the problem. Depending on the device that you have, you may be able to fix the memory a bit. Some of the Linksys models are shipped with half of the memory crippled and you can open it back up again.
