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 not:

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