The funny thing about my decision to write this article is that I am not really much of a router connoisseur.
The extent of my router explorations amounted to me walking into the computer store, selecting the second-cheapest router I could find (usually a Linksys), and calling it good.
It wasn’t until the moment when that firmware came up in the browser screen that I realized just how much that I had been missing all of these years. By wiping the Linksys default firmware and installing DD-WRT, I had unknowingly and unwittingly converted that cheap router pretty much into a super-router.
It is now capable of more things than I could have ever imagined.
