'What build to use on WRT54__ for ______ mode' is a common topic here. Cool Look here:
https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=1165400#1165400
(scroll up to mrjcd's post since DD's site change messed up post-specific links)

I use latest builds on my old WRT54*'s, but only for testing, so follow mrjcd's advice. Just be sure not to use 39144 through 39654. Neutral

Note that Broadcom bridge modes aren't a good idea unless it's just for one client (or two, maybe). Use Repeater (not Bridge) if possible. Or Client Mode, depending on your requirements.
