Are you talking about wireless performance? If so, I doubt you will see
much, if any improvement with alternative firmware. The most stable
wireless packages in alternative firmware for Linksys devices are based
on the Broadcom binary blob - same as the proprietary firmware.
The main advantage of FLOSS firmware for these devices, in my opinion,
is to enhance functionality.
