Linksys WAPs and DD-WRT firmware
We have had a planet WAP fail on us (no surprise there), so are looking for a replacement. Our current setup is rather Ad-hoc, with a mixture of planet, dlink and HP WAPs scattered throughout the place (the planets dominate).
Just wondering what thoughts are on the linksys WAP54G? Misco do it for the less than £45 whereas the HPs are in the £90 region, and we couldn't really justify that.
Also, what is this DD-WRT I have been reading about? I can understand it seems to be a custom type of firmware, but what benefits does it bring? We are looking for a WAP that is capable of automatically setting the best channel if possible, but I also like the idea of this firmware allowing for proper logging, if I have understood that right.
Is the linksys WAP above and this firmware a good combination? We're only looking to replace 1 WAP, so maybe if this works well we'll go for more with this setup.
