OpenWRT on the Linksys WRT54GL

Meeting Date

Cedric Puddy will give us the "nickel tour" of installing Linux on the Linux WRT54GL hackable router. He will:

  • flash the routers with OpenWRT
  • demonstrate the flexibility of the built-in switch
  • show OpenWRT's ipkg management
  • share scripts that he wrote to make flashing the boxes easier
  • Discuss differences between the stock Linksys images, OpenWRT and DD-WRT

If there is time Cedric will also demo the Wi-Spy 2.4 GHz spectrum analyser.

Before the meeting Brent Clements will demonstrate package management for newbies.
