I bought a LinkSys WRT54GL on Craigslist with dd-wrt already installed. Firmware version is v24-sp2 (10/10/09) mini-build 13064. Rev 9. The router has 16M ram and 4M flash ram. I want to add openVPN functionality. After reading the Peacock post several times I've decided I should use dd-wrt.v24_VPN_generic.bin. I also plan to do the 30-30-30 reset at both ends of the process even thought there seems to be some disagreement about the need for this. I figure it can't hurt. Does anyone see a problem with my plan so far?
Even if all goes swimmingly, according to "plan", you're very likely to be dissatisfied w/ the performance (that's a crappy 200MHz processor, based on ancient architecture, circa 2005). VPNs need the best routers available for optimal performance, and even then, they rarely compare to a full-blown Windows/Linux PC.
