thanks for your reply, actually i did read it, specially point 8.
so i have these 2 questions to try to understand things properly.
should/can i assume that a newer build is always better (better being more stable)? Generally this is the intention but it also fails and for now this build seems pretty stable (allthough there is room for improvement) more stable then my older dd-wrt version (older then the one from the database) which i then (long time ago) didn't download from the database, following point 8. Ofcourse i since then updated to the newest version (r44700), but for me new isn't the issue, stability is! so basicallly anything from r41174 should do, right?
secondly, as i feel that my initial question had nothing to do with stability problems, just on information on how to set my router / vpn up in a matter that i can use the vpn on only one ip-adress only or a ip-range. Since i don't know how to do that, i really didn't made any attempts, hence i didn't run into any problems to solve, except my own ignorence on the topic on the topic.
hope this makes some sence..
PS: am diving into understanding the Policy Based Routing guide for DDWRT thread.

No problem we are here to help
There is no such a thing as a stable build all builds are beta.
One thing you should not do is use the router database.
Normally use one of the last builds, look at the build threads and if you do not see any showstoppers then use one of those.
You already have a link for the Policy Based Routing guide which is the one to use, it is actually very simply set the IP addresses of the clients you want to use the VPN in the PBR box use CIDR as outlined.
There are some caveats mainly DNS but that is also discussed
