Ok, so months ago I was talking to my buddy Greg about wireless routers, and I mentioned that you can get this upgraded firmware which will drastically improve your range and add features. Then, I totally forgot to send that information to him. But don’t worry, it’s not the only thing he’s waiting on. I still haven’t delivered a piece of art he ordered like a year ago! (Sorry Kim!)
Anyway, now that I’m done admitting my inadequacies, it’s time to redeem myself – at least partially. So, if you are the owner of a Linksys WRT54G series router (only like THE most popular router ever sold), then follow along to change it into something almost unrecognizably better than what you currently have!
- First, start out by reading the Open Source WRT54G Story
- Next, go get the Hyper WRT firmware and upgrade your router. This should handle the needs of 95% of the population.
- Finally, if you require ultimate tweakability, go get DD WRT. And you’re probably going to need their tutorials.
After you’ve done all that, report back here and let me know how it went! That is all.
