I returned home today and checked my 310n running DD-WRT v24-sp1
I can confirm that these rules do exist in other setups, like this VPN
build, with nearly default configs.
My VPN options have not been setup since my recent router upgrade, nor
have dyndns options.
I have WPA2 setup and a few other options but nothing serious.
be careful about the default options for wireless TX Power in DD-WRT
the default value should be 28 but sometimes it can default to 70 or
so. While this is usually fine, it can cause hardware issues in some
this is rarely necessary, especially because as transmit power
increases, so does the noise level. without excellent antennae the
benefits can be negated.
