[isf-wifidog] IPTables locking up with OpenWRT - another distro?

I agree that OpenWRT is easy to use - we do have a partial build using the
latest version but I'm reluctant to continue down that path until I'm sure
that the iptables was resolved as others report the same problems. Our
implementation makes a lot of use of iptables in a dynamic way and that may
be the cause of the problem as we change rules so frequently.
What are the DNS oddities that you experience because the result of the
iptables problem is the client being denied access that looks exactly like a
dns issue from the client end?
I appreciate your feedback.

Can you upgrade to the current version of OpenWRT (8.09.x) or is that not
We recently rolled out 40ish WAPS running OpenWRT 8.09 and WiFiDog (with a
custom WiFiDog backend) on WRT54GL hardware and are very happy with them. We
have them in libraries and use WiFiDog for the public network
(authentication against our patron database and access control only) and a
WPA2 encrypted network for staff use.
We do a nightly reboot (to force them to check for updates and because of
some DNS oddities that seem to crop up after the WAP has been running for a
few days) but we are very happy with it. I personally find OpenWRT easier to
work with than DD-Wrt, but that is probably just be a personal preference.
