DD-WRT is a Linux based alternative OpenSource firmware suitable for a great variety of WLAN routers and embedded systems. The main emphasis lies on providing the easiest possible handling while at the same time supporting a great number of functionalities within the framework of the respective hardware platform used.
As some of you might have recognized via the press the FCC intends router makers to lock down their devices to prevent users from changing RF settings to operate a device outside the allowed spectrum. Practically this leads to a complete firmware lock down preventing users to install third party firmwares. We all know what that means for security, innovation and freedom so the FSF launched a online form to easily voice user's opinions to the FCC at www.dearfcc.org. Feel free to tell the FCC your point of view!
