I was hoping someone else would respond to you since it has been a year since I tried OS's other than DD-WRT. I have stayed with DD-WRT since it has the features I need and is reliable enough. I have had to do a 30/30/30 reset more than once while trying to setup a couple different routers (older and newer LinkSys's). The settings will appear correct but something will not work the first time. I don't know which forks have improved that aspect of reliability. Up-time isn't perfect, but good.
