For those who are sticking to the stock firmware, here are the latest versions for v2 and v3:

WNR2000v2 Firmware Version 1.2.0.6_36.0.58 (North America) [netgear.com]

WNR2000v3: Firmware Version 1.1.2.10 (NA and WW Users) [netgear.com]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The following applies to the V2 version

Just as a heads up. I got Version 2 and if you want to upgrade to DD-WRT and then Tomato USB. Do not upgrade the V2 model to the latest stock firmware because it blocks DD-WRT. I wasted three hours on that stupidness last night. If you have upgraded to the latest Stock firmware then you will need to downgrade to initial release firmware on the Netgear support website before going to DD-WRT .

For DD-WRT


You will initially need to flash to dd-wrt.v24-14536_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini-WNR2000v2 and then you can flash to dd-wrt.v24-21061_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini . http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/suppor.../svn14536/

For tomato USB

You will initially need to flash to (DD-WRT) dd-wrt.v24-14536_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini-WNR2000v2 and then you can flash to tomato USB (I know that it doesn’t have a USB port but this tomato build supports this router) tomato-K26-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-Mini.trxhttp://tomatousb.org/download

The following applies to the V3 version:

Note: You will want to verify that the version that comes on your V3 router is < 1.1.2.10. You must downgrade to start the process below. I pulled the router out of the box, connected it to a laptop and power and did took the following steps. It was up and running in under 10m.

DD-WRT

Firmwares located here:
DD-WRT Beta Site [dd-wrt.com]

You should first flash the NA (for north america) firmware.
- wnr2000v3-factory_NA.img

Once the reboot happens, flash the webflash for more functionality:
- wnr2000v3-webflash.bin

Profit!

Tomato

Due to the Atheros based chipset, this router isn't supported by Tomato.

If you brick the router, I bricked mine 7 times. Manually configure your computers IP address to 192.168.1.5 and configure your gateway for 192.168.1.1 Download the (tftp2) utility and then you can use it to send any stock firmware back to the router. http://forum1.netgear.com/showthread.php?t=30453

my daughter isn't permitted to have wireless access in her dorm, but i want to add a couple of ports for both the laptop and desktop.

I assume the wireless access can be disabled? read the Q & A on the product page but didn't find an answer..

All you need for multiple wired ports is an Ethernet switch but it requires turning wireless and the DHCP server off, configuring an unused IP address for the device itself and so on. A real switch would need no configuration. Just plug all the Ethernet cables in and you're done!

For example, this Gigabit Ethernet switch is either overkill or futureproofed depending on your point of view and is $15 at Staples.

As a cheap few frills router (especially an older model), you can do a lot worse. There is no gigabit ethernet or dual band N, but you get native IPv6 support, WDS, and one isolated guest SSID (internet only; no access to computers on your network.) Netgear Genie also makes setup incredibly easy.

I have one from years ago that is running stock firmware without any issues. I like it better than my cheap TP-Link one (no features at all) and my wrt54g2. This one will be last to be replaced as I upgrade.

The router can be flashed with ddwrt on both v2 and v3 versions but v3 versions have less support.
in addition the v3 has a stability issue where you must disable wireless N. If you dont, the router lags and becomes unresponsive very easily.

Ive read on the ddwrt forum that people have gotten newer version of ddwrt on the router but some routers are locked to prevent re-flashing of firmware.

im currently using it as a wireless adapter mode for my pc.
imo, unless you know for a fact that you want something more than bottom of the barrel, spend a little more money

Great price. I have used three of these in various setups, including my home. Wireless range is adequate for my 1800 sq ft two-story house. It even covers most of my yard. The netgear software is nice because I can reserve specific addresses for specific devices (needed for my mythTV server).

I am tempted to pick one up for a spare.
