I’ve been using a Linksys WRT54GL router running DD-WRT for several years now. It runs OpenVPN and fits a surprisingly large number of features into 4 MB of flash and 16 MB of RAM. It has been stable and reliable, but it’s a very under-powered device by modern standards. I haven’t been happy with the pace of DD-WRT development, which takes a very long time to release large, monolithic updates. First I tried to upgrade it to OpenWRT, but the latest release is too large to incorporate OpenVPN in 4 MB of flash. So I replaced it with a Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH running OpenWRT Backfire 10.03.
