So your the WiFi guy here at HUKD then?

Not really.

I'm just really happy with my WRT setup which I have as above.

I have one of these, [COLOR="Red"]but is aint an ADSL router[/COLOR] it's one for cable broadband like Virgin Media as it doesn't have a modem built in :whistling:

Indeed, cable router only.
It's doing a great job on my Virgin Media 10mbit cable attached to the Motorola Cable Modem

Isn't it possible to increase transmitting power in DD-WRT like it is done in HyperWRT?

As to ADSL router thing - I prefer to keep my network flexible, so when I had ADSL, I just bought Ethernet ADSL modem and used it with WRT54GS. Then I migrated to NTL and kept WRT54GS as main router.

I run this custom firmware on mine:

dd-wrt.com/dd-…php

allows you to overclock it, increase the transmit power and a host of other new features too :thumbsup:

i am interested in the firmware as it boosts transmit power but the webpage was nerdy gobbledegook. can it be flashed through normal means or do you have to use a serial adapter?

normally, but read the gobblydegook, it will tell you how Just go to the download page, grab the firware and flash it, check that your version is compatible first though :thumbsup:

yep it's a great little work horse ;-)

pc world also have this model for collect instore (if you buy online), and they have the 125mps version which I have ( pcworld.co.uk/mar…id= ) for £41 if you collect instore.

I vaugly remember reading that the newer versions of these dont run on linux so therefore you cant run custom firmware on them. Someone else might be able to shed some light on that
