DD-WRT v24-sp2

I'm on a firmware upgrading spree here. Right after upgrading the Buffalo TeraStations yesterday, today I see that DD-WRT has also had a newer release. This might be currently available for paid customers only, but DD-WRT is worth every Euro cent.

Strangely enough, I found that my Linksys WAP54G access point (DD-WRT micro) wouldn't take the upgrade eventhough the firmware loading seemed to work. After trying a few times, I realized that the firmware did transfer correctly to the access point, it just didn't reboot at the end. I tried manually clicking on the "reboot" button, which made the access point go through the reboot motion, but it still didn't actually reboot.

I ended up having to go to the access point and unplug it. When it booted up again, it became v24-sp2.
