I would like to know if any of you guys know of any special firmware upgrades that would allow me to change more variables for my linksys router. I would particularly like to be able to assign static address for my pcs based on MAC address and so on (not true static, just want to prevent them from changing everytime I turn on and off the pcs in my house). Also, would love to know if there are any tricks to get the wireless radio to transmit a more powerful signal (for greater range and consistency), or any particular configuration that allows greater efficiency etc. Thanks!
