Yikes! I had forgotten about the openwrt thing. By all means if you are 
running a Linksys install the new software to it. It makes a monster 
machine out of them. We've got two running and they kick booty. [ Don't 
tell anyone I told you but you can crank them babies up to about a 
quarter watt output for some real WIFI connectivity. Don't recommend it 
for long term use but............... We run ours at about 100/125mW. ]

IF you try to access the router from a windows machine use Firefox, NOT 
IE. When we changed over our first one Tracie, who has to have Windows 
for her work, thought she had killed the router. IE wouldn't show all 
the menus, and trashed what it did show. I logged in with Firefox on 
Linux and everything was fine. She opened up Firefox and logged in and 
it was fine.
