It means loading fresh , probably customised , software/firmware onto your router , personally I would be careful about doing this , although there are some talented firmware hackers out there . It usually involves loading the firmware into a hex editor and changing the necessary files to add or remove items , sometimes you can even load firmware from a similar router made by another company onto it .
