I upgraded today to try to improve my wireless signal. It seems to be better. I installed DD-WRT v24-sp1 (07/27/08) mini - build 10011. I've been wanting to add some USB storage to my router and it looks like I need the mega build to support a USB drive. Is this a fairly straight forward configuration? Is there a good thread for how to do this?

Also, is anyone bumping up their TX power? I just noticed my signal dropped to "low"; although, it seems to be staying up at "good" or "very good" much more consistently after the fw upgrade.

You can't use the built in script, it will fail a lot, instead here is my startup script, it will get you going in the right direction.

Code:

cat usb-drive
#!/bin/sh
check='/tmp/jffs.log'
if [ -d $check ]; then
# keeps the startup script from running more than #once, on the wrt600n it wants to do that sometimes #when the dsl connection drops and restarts
  exit
fi

(
echo "starting jffs startup"
cd /lib/modules/2.4.36/
while true
do
        insmod usbcore.o
        insmod ehci-hcd.o
        insmod scsi_mod.o
        insmod usb-storage.o
        insmod sd_mod.o
        sleep 12

        if dmesg | tail -n10 | grep 'Attached scsi disk' 2>/dev/null 1>/dev/null
           then
           break
        else
          rmmod sd_mod
          rmmod usb-storage
          rmmod scsi_mod
          rmmod ehci-hcd
          rmmod usbcore

          gpio diable 4
          sleep 1
          gpio enable 4
          sleep 1
        fi
done
