Linux on wrt54gl

Category: Linux — Josh @ 8:59 pm

I installed OpenWrt on my linksys wireless router today. The install is wicked easy. It has a basic iptables ruleset, and with the processor in my router it should be able to handle a much more complex ruleset. We will see once I start setting up the ruleset. So far, I have setup ntpclient package and set it up to sync with my linux server on my local lan. I am looking into setting up QOS so that Miftik can pull down newsgroup feeds and I can still play battlefield without getting lag. Another interesting thing is the combined dhcp/dns daemon package. I think the capabilities of the daemon are really cool.

I have not really had the patience today to work on doing much else with it. My thoughts have been wandering a lot, and I can’t seem to concentrate on anything, so I have just been playing Battlefield 2142
