Hacking Wifi Part 1: Installing Third-Party Firmware

One of the best bargains in technology today is the wifi router. From
the factory, these units are usually configured to perform only a few
basic functions, even though they are capable of much more. Many of
these routers run Linux-based firmware or can have Linux installed on
them. Though the hardware resources are limited by today's standards,
you can often install third-party firmware that gives you virtually
unlimited control of the device and access to a variety of open source
applications. At this week's GLLUG meeting, yours truly will
demonstrate how to install third-party firmware on the Linksys WRT54GL
and La Fonera wifi routers.

This week's meeting will be held on Thursday, Nov 29 at 6:30PM. See
the GLLUG website for location details:
