Threaded View



I currently own a uk versionWAG54GS anexe a linksys router, ive had it
for about 6 months, but in that time i've seen no modification info for
this model anywhere on the internetl, so i would like to through this
into the open.

im in intrested in mostly in :-

1, any third party firmware that would work with it.

2, i've read that it is possible to use the router as a repeater
station, im more intrested in using this as a wirless bridge than a
wired bridge but would certainly like to have feedback on all the ways
of doing this.

3, any hardware modifications that can be carried out to improve
things

However all info is welcome.


ps to every one else who has this model linksys have recently realeased
a firmware upgrade for this model, go to the uk linksys website and
checkout support area.:D:D:D

Quoted text here. Click to load it

Start here:
<http://wiki.openwrt.org/TableOfHardware
Search for WAG54G (similar to GS).
Note that it uses a TI AR7 processor and does NOT normally run Linux.
Go to the AR7 development site at:
<http://wiki.openwrt.org/AR7Port
<http://wiki.openwrt.org/OpenWrtDocs/InstallingAR7
I have no clue whether it works or its level of quality.
