Linux on the WRT54G
: "This is a mini Linux distribution for the Linksys wrt54g
. In about 20 seconds, you can install a small set of Linux tools to your access point's ramdisk. The distribution is geared towards those who are curious about casually exploring the internal workings of this device. The installation is strictly to the ram disk of the box. No permanent changes are made. If you mess something up, power-cycle the box.
Upon completion of the installation, you'll be able to telnet into the box and have a system with basic tools such as syslog, httpd (with cgi-bin support), vi, snort, mount, insmod, rmmod, top, grep, ls, ifconfig, iptables, ssh, iptraf etc. " The author also has tools for accessing the Linux running in the Linksys NSLU2
network storage/USB device. Like the WRT54G, it costs under $100. 3:31:32 PM
