I have had a good experience with the sveasoft firmware.  I especially like 
the fact they extend the web interface to include most of their options.  One 
nice feature that may prove usefull to you is the ability to vary the power 
output of the RF transmitter.  You can use this increase, or more usually for 
me, to decrease the range of the router.

As for stability, I have not noticed any difference between the sveasoft and 
stock linksys firmwares.

No trees were harmed in the transmission of this message, however a large 
number of electrons were seriously inconvenienced.
