Ok so I have the wrt54g router from linksys. Firmware Version: v1.02.5 build 002, Jan. 9, 2008

It only has 9 slots for port forwarding. I need many more. I've heard you can get some kind of new software for it called dd-wrt or something (but you have the flash the router?). Is this recommended if you need more port forwarding slots? Note that I don't currently have any problems with the router - I download and upload a lot of content without a hitch and the router performs nicely. I don't want to jeopardize this but I do need more slots.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
