UPDATE 01/09/2012: This post has been updated to include links to DD-WRt SVN version 17990 and includes instructions for loading DD-WRT “mega” onto the router.
Recently I got the urge to get IPv6 going on my local LAN (will be covered in another post). First thing I checked was if my router had any native support for it. Unfortunately, it did not. This led me to checking out DD-WRT. It’s something I’ve used for years with various other routers and it opens up all kinds of cool features and options not usually available with the factory firmware.
