DD-WRT has almost everything covered now. This is a good option.
The only question is if dd.wrt is usable in his router, and that isn't always easy to figure out. There are many routers that can use it, but aren't listed in the official supported router db. The best way to find out is to register in the user's forum over there and ask around.
edit: PS... I like your idea of reflashing a new router to dd.wrt... its so much more flexible and user-friendly than the native firmware on most factory flashed routers.
