I've been using DD-WRT on a WRT54GS v.2 (the one with 32mb) and have no
issues. I also have RR Premium going through there, and 2 desktops.

I haven't played with OpenWRT. I've played with Sveasoft ...and hated
the whole licensing bit... So I dropped it.

Haven't used DD, but I've been very happy with OpenWRT.
I've used it on a couple of WRT54G's now.
