Title: Adds Many New Features and Customizations
OpenSource-DD-WRT and Linksys-WRT150N
Compatibility Rating: 95%
More Info: Specifically I used "Firmware: DD-WRT v24 (05/24/08) std" on two different WRT150N v1.1 routers and both upgrades were successful.

All features I've attempted to use have worked successfully. There were a great deal of new features added with the upgrade, including the ability to change the amount of power on the antenna - be careful though as you can burn out the system if you set it to high, and it can affect the overall logevity of the system (though you can also turn it down as well, which can be equally useful in certain cases).

Just make sure to use a wired link to do the upgrade. For my second upgrade I got cocky and did it through Wifi and this failed on the first attempt and led to a bricked router. I did manage to locate a utility which did a direct upgrade firmware on the router back to Linksys spec (if anyone is interested I can look through my records to get that utilities exact name). This allowed me to do the upgrade without using the router interface at all, which was good since the router wouldn't do anything at all except turn on and sit there. Following that direct upgrade to DDR-WRT using that utility was successful.

The smaller version of DD WRT was also tested and worked fine.
