My Netgear wgt624 v3 router doesn't seem to be amazingly responsive any more, so before I buy another router, I'd like to try putting some open source software on the thing and see if it makes it better/passably usable. dd-wrt apparently doesn't have any support, nor the older "tomato". Open-wrt... ...I can't tell whether it has anything useful.

Is there anything else I can try (including open-wrt, if I'm wrong about that being an option)?

Check compatibility with openwrt and dd-wrt. These are the common software to install on compatilbe routers. Both distributions have lists of compatible routers.
