I agree. Use the third-party firmwares are heck a lot better offical one 
from Linksys. I have three routers, WRT54G (Tomato firmware), WRTSL54GS 
(HyperWRT Thibor firmware) and Buffalo WHR-G54S (Tomato firmware). They 
work great and never get crash or reboot unless there is power failure. I 
personal can't wait for someone to port any BSD to these routers.
