Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have a network of three routers in my house. They are all Cisco-Linksys WRT54GL Wireless-G Broadband Router or equivalent (one came from a cell phone company and was set up for remote administration). All have had the software they came with ripped out, and DD-WRT installed, which has been 100% rock solid reliable, and which has a huge feature set. I have connected the routers using a feature of DD-WRT that is stock and allows bridging the routers, and have two DSL lines that back each other up routed through one of the routers.
There is no DD-WRT loadout for this router, which is not Cisco's fault. But when they "upgraded it" to Cisco Cloud, I just unplugged it and put it on the shelf. I am waiting to see if DD-WRT will ever support this device - a real operating system with complete routing would make this useful, while what Cisco ships is not useful to me.
Unfortunately, I can't recommend this to anyone, considering that it was "graded" to a radically different style of maintenance without any warning. Nor can I recommend any router that runs any release of Cisco software other than IOS, since Cisco seems to believe that home network security is best centrally managed.
