It should not be a problem to use the latest build for your unit, which can be found here...

If you are doing the initial flash from stock firmware to dd-wrt, you'll need to use the .chk file. The bin file is for upgrading existing dd-wrt installs.

As far as best settings, I am unsure, like most things - you would probably do good to test configurations and see what may work best for your environment.
