Hi guys,

How often are you updating your DD-WRT firmware?

I do every month, should I do it every week?

Thanks!

It's a reasonable to do it when there is a kernel update or services and binaries updates...
but on some routers i do it every new build...just because i can.. Cool

Unfortunately, this is a topic that may not get you a lot of feedback from the community at large, or it may get you 'bad feedback' Rolling Eyes Laughing. Updating firmware is highly dependent on issues noted in the current release you are using, on development commits that may or may not resolve those issues, and upstream security patches for the kernel or included packages merged by the developer of DD-WRT. I generally err on once a month, preferably when a 0 or 5 in the last digit of firmware version exists, or when key development commits are applied.
