OpenWRT is open source alternative firmware which supports the WRT54GL. This is a brief version of the installation instructions located at http://wiki.openwrt.org/OpenWrtDocs/Installing and http://wiki.openwrt.org/InstallingWrt54gl
- Get the latest OpenWRT binary from http://downloads.openwrt.org/whiterussian/newest/bin/. The correct file is openwrt-wrt54g-squashfs.bin
- Connect to the LinkSys web interface by visiting its address (default 192.168.1.1)
- Upload the OpenWRT file as a "firmware update".
- Watch as your router magically transforms into an OpenWRT-running box.
