Tweaking my WRT54G

After encouraging hints by eisber, i started to tune my WRT54G. I flashed it with the Sveasoft Firmware.
I like the speed booster, I will have to experiment if this obsoletes my old 802.11b Accesspoint. SSH access is nice too, especially when the routing is down.
There are many other new configuration possibilities to toy around.

  1. has firmware for the wrt54 too. This one is linux based and brings an ipkg package management. Dunno about speed boost, but if this is linksys speedboost extenstion (the products with the s) than, yes, speed boost is there too. And its opensource…

  2. Well, Alchemy is also based on Linux, Busybox, Dropbear & Co. I have not yet installed ipkg, because i am not sure what i might need in addition.

    The “speed boost” is more a range boost, as with the default firmware it only sends with 28mW.
