Linksys WRT54G

Together with jimmy I ordered a Linksys WRT54G router, and got it yesterday . Why I bought the WRT54G is the fact that it’s quite cheap (~70 Euro), you can get the firmware’s sourcecode and it’s running on Linux:

$ telnet 5431

I’ll set up a gateway and will take a closer look at the wrt54g-linux-project and the german webpage on Linksys WRT54G as soon as I’ve some free time.
