custom configuring your wireless router

Wondering if anyone has done anything like this? My daughter wants to apply a custom configuration to my wireless router. Says it will improve routing and speed. I'm a little leery should it screw it up completely.

just be careful with opening up ports, can lead to access to it without you knowing it.

I never have had a issue with just using a router out of the box. About 10 years ago me and my brother had to open up ports for certain Online MMO games but thats all a thing of the past now from what i know of.

if she knows what shes doing and can control the ports and make it secured then you will be fine, but if shes just opening up random ports not knowing the outcome can cause issues.
