I installed dd-wrt.v24_std_special_generic.bin DD-WRT v24-sp2 (12/28/09) std-special
(SVN revision 13525) on my Linksys WRT54G V3 router. It works fine as long as I do not turn on QOS but when I do turn on QOS it locks up - usually within a minute.

I (think) it is what is called the 'current stable release' but can't be completely sure as I do not see any other versions with the title of 'current stable release' (for the special edition).

Could someone suggest what QOS settings I should first try (so it does not lock up)? Then I could gradually add in the other settings until it does lock. What I did not know is which are considered 'primary QOS' settings and which are non-primary settings. Also - perhaps I am using the wrong version and should be using some other version of special edition that is known to be more stable.

What I did is set the following (I left everything else at the default settings):

Uplink to 300 (my cable provider says 'up to 500 kbps')
Downlink to 5,000 (my cable provider says 'up to 7,500 kbps')

In Default Bandwidth level I set it to 300 up and 7,000 down.

In MAC Priority I added two MAC addresses:
One address for: Max up 300 Max down 5,000
The other address for: Max up 100 Max down 2,000

For Ethernet port priority I set one port to bulk & 2M – and left the rest as Premium 100M.

Yes, default will work fine - as default is 'QOS disabled'.

Thing is I bought the software so I could use the QOS features that were described as being available.

ok so back to the first question....
.
.
.
What is the current 'stable' release for the special edition?
.
.
.
If it is dd-wrt.v24_std_special_generic.bin DD-WRT v24-sp2 (12/28/09) std-special
(SVN revision 13525)
.
.
.
Then we can continue
.
.
.
if not I need to know how to find out what is the current stable release as nothing in this section (where the special release is provided) says 'stable release'.

I found some pure facts...

Pure Fact #1 - after you add in or change a QOS setting you will find the CPU usage goes to 100% which results in the router loosing Internet access.

... At least on a Linksys WRT54G version 3 using the above mentioned Special Build it does.

Pure Fact #2 - The solution is to re-boot the router after making changes to QOS. After a re-boot, the router settles down and your Internet access returns.

Pure Fact #3 - It would be of use to provide this 'insider knowledge' to the newbies who don't know these secrets.

Pure Fact #4 - People who help others are better respected than those who do not.

And thats a Fact!!

Hello, I'm interested as well to understand which version is considered stable. If you discover the version please let us know.

Hello, me too (and with no problem apart some weird things on the web interface: the mac address filter is missing but if you use the direct access to the page is there: I'm not sure if its working or not)

But, is this version the last stable?

I know its a beta... thanks god I'm still able to read ;)

I'm wondering where is (if there is) the stable build (I've already asked this into another post: I'm not able to find such build).

If they are all Beta ok, just let us know.

On 26 Jul 2008
Brainslayer released:
20080726 - v24 sp1 special - build ~10020

...and from what I saw in another post THAT version (build 10020) from 2.5 years ago is the current non-beta release.

All releases since that time are marked as 'Beta' - meaning:
ya' pays yer money
ya' takes yer chances (with perpetual Beta versions)
and
ya' gets abuse from some of the other people on this thread when
ya' asks a seemingly innocent question.

Now as one would say - go back and read - and look for facts - and non-beta releases of a product that you paid for.

And don't go talking about Tomato here - they don't like it - as it is free.
