I have been advised to use dd-wrt, for richness of features and heightened security.
The argument about security is that major manufacturers don't care much about the firmware, release with a lot of bugs and those become widely known. Consequently, just knowing the router model confers knowledge of many vulnerabilities to an would-be attacker.
Is this generally true? When looking for a secure home edge router, should I filter out the models that are not supported by dd-wrt?
