Quality-of-service controls, iptables-based firewall, IPv6 support, DNS controls, Kai Daemon for allowing game console network tunneling, and a host of features for using your router as a public-access hotspot are among the many possibilities for hacking your router with DD-WRT."

Welcome to 2009.

Via the comment system over there, I posted the IPv6 didn't work (in the builds I used, and read about anyway), it hasn't been actively developed as free, open source firmware in about a year for the v24-preSP2, but they will gladly take your money for it.

Tomato for me, for now. Though I did look at Hyper/OpenWRT for a while.
