This is my first post, but I have been looking at DD-WRT for about a year now and trying to see if it will work with my solution.
I am planning to deploy a lot of routers into the homes of people that subscribe to my service.
In summary my service is a way to screen websites and make them "child" safe.
I have setup proxy servers and have them all working nicely, but my problem is I want the defence on the gateway to prevent circumvention...
So I thought put it on a router.. here's what I am looking for:
Now I know that you DD-WRT has most of this, my question is more around the proxy and the ease of installing software on top?
Also which router would be ideal?
Ideally I would like to create an image with everything I want installed, but at the moment, I'm not sure how that is done, any help appreciated

|If that is even possible, you'd probably need routers
with 8MB Flash and 32MB ram.
As far as which router is ideal, a lot of people are liking the WRT600N routers.
Those are not readily available though
WRT610N's are looking like a good substitute, will support DD-WRT, have 8MB Flash, 64MB Ram.
Internal antenna's - so range will probably only cover the house.
Don't know where you are, but if in the USA, NewEgg has them for about $150 each.
If you were planning to get all this working on cheap routers, like $50 or less, it's probably NOT going to work the way you want it.
