DD-WRT


Released January, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Huge community, lots of support information. Can give $60 routers features of $600 routers. Gives ability to boost signal strength.

The Cons:Has the potential to brick a router. Can be tricky to install--not for all users or the faint-of-heart.

DD-WRT is not actually a product, it is a 3rd party firmware for routers, which, in many cases, adds much more functionality to the router.  More information can be found here.
