I just flashed my Linksys E3000 router with ddwrt.
Now I have the following problems:
-my printer (a Canon MX340) does not see the wireless router (the WPS doesn't function apparently): should I use some kind of specific config?
-forward of port doesn't work, I got an internal port which is perfectly reachable from inside, port forward doesn't function from outside
-wireless speed is 144 instead of 300 mbs
-want to configure SSL VPN but don't know where to start
-can't connect to certain ports on my Synology DS 211J anymore: fileserver on port 7000 gives empty page whereas on my Linksys config it was showing correctly my content ...

This is why I am hesitant in flashing my router
with dd-wrt at this time.

I was wondering if it is possible to link/bridge another 2 or 3 Linksys E3000 routers to a main one running Linksys stock firmware? I just am not sure I want to run dd-wrt on the main router because I want to run Cisco Connect to give access to my network to passing guests.
Also, after running dd-wrt on another 2 to 3 other E3000 routers I plan to purchase since the prices are reduced, will I experience higher speeds after bridging the routers in the 5 GHz mode? Currently I am using WRT54GS routers running dd-wrt to connect remote devices (networked laser printer). I plan to purchase a networkable high definition television and would want to remotely connect it at higher speeds using the E3000 routers.
Overall I need to determine if it is all worth the investment in additional E3000 routers for higher bridged speeds over my current configuration using WRT54GS routers as I am only really linking a heavy networked color laser printer and 54 Mbps is sufficient for that. I do not want any hassle in connecting/bridging additional E3000 routers if there are bugs.
