Despite previous postings and the help info in DD-WRT Web GUI that Afterburner only works on the GS models, this speed-enhancing feature is available on all DD-WRT-capable G routers. It is hardware independent. SpeedBooster will only improve speeds when used with clients that also have the SpeedBooster/Afterburner feature; use with "normal" 802.11g clients will actually lower performance.

  • Afterburner can be used in networks that also have 802.11b devices, and will not disable the use of them.
  • Afterburner can help in environments dense with wireless signals.
  • Many MiniPCI cards built into notebooks and many PC Cards are based on Broadcom chips whose configurations support Afterburner

Afterburner is also known as:

  • SpeedBooster
  • SuperSpeed
  • TurboG 125mbps
  • HSP125
  • G+

Afterburner is not:

  • Super-G / 108 mbps (they are not based on the same technology)

Brainslayer's Clarification of SpeedBooster

More information on what SpeedBooster is can be found here:


  • The following is pasted from the above link:
    • "It speeds up network throughput, but it is not intended to speed up Internet use. However, a speedbooster signal can be slightly more successful in a radio-dense environment."
    • "Once again, if your primary use is Internet, then Speedbooster will not impress you much. However, if you also do some regular networking because your network is 2 computers or larger AND you move files, print, look through digital camera photos, use movies/music across the network, then you might really like the faster technology."
