Anyone else into hacking embedded devices? I picked up a Linksys WRT54GL earlier this week, and I plan on soldering a JTAG cable together, installing a serial port, and maybe a fan. I've also got to order another 9dbi antenna and get the B.A.T.M.A.N. protocol working since I want to make this into a mesh network node. There's tons of shit that becomes possible after you hack your router though (e.g. personal VPN, dedicated seed box, additional layer of security with iptables, etc.). OpenWRT has thousands of applications. I fucking love it, but I wouldn't mind giving FairuzaWRT a try.

Also, here is a book on hacking the WRT54G series if it interests anyone else.

This sounds interesting, and I'm puzzled why no one has replied.

Out of curiosity - I'm going to ask about the prospects of hard hacking a device like the router in question. I'm aware that I could read this up on my own, but fuck, there's already loads I'm reading up on. Might I specify this querry to your specific goals? Who would want to perform this kind of modification and for what reason? What I'm imagening is a cheaper way in obtaining a device with features comparable to general purpose PC's, embedded within a network router. Is this perception correct to some degree, or are there more to it?

I'm already reading up on soldering in general, and wish-think to read up on advanced private networking. This might indeed be very interesting. All I know about the WRT54G is that it runs on opensource software out of the box, which of course introduces certain possibilities in modifying the firmware. I have myself tried out dd-wrt on a newer Linksys router, but wasn't able to discover much purpose for it beyond the reach of the embedded firmware. That is for an ignorant end-user like myself..

I will be fully understanding if this ignorance is unrelated to your vision for this thread. I guess I'm just trying my luck.

Routers have a pretty limited amount of memory and storage (the most powerful router I have has 64MB of RAM), so by hard hacking it I can upgrade the RAM and add an SD card reader for storage. The latter of these two hacks can allow me to make a swapfile to increase memory without physically upgrading the RAM. I hope to be able to run darknet programs or games like Starcraft over wireless mesh networks by doing this.

I don't really know anything about hacking, but I'm interested in learning...
I have a WRT54G2 v1 with DD-WRT firmware, is there anything I can do with it?
>> No. 867 [Edit]
I'm in the same boat as No. 589. This stuff seems interesting, but I wouldn't know where to get started at first. What should I do to learn?
>> No. 869 [Edit]
Learn about Linux. Install OpenWrt on a router and run a webserver, dedicated seed box, mesh node, etc... Just keep learning.

Some links:

Thanks, bro, I'm reading now.

If you're going to use Linux, you should consider learning C. It's what the Linux kernal (vmlinuz) is programmed in. This guy has exceptionally good programming tutorials.

They started out with Linksys WRT54GL routers, but are apparently upgrading. Pretty cool project, and sporting an extensive how-to wiki at that.

Well, I find this project interesting:
Note that it's described in detail, and it's possible to build for an average hobbyist (they create much more complex things nowadays).

The txt shouldn't be there.
This post shouldn't be here, also.

I just found one lying around in a dumpster WRT54G series version 7 should I throw it away? it seems to have been a crippled version with little memory. Can anyone tell me what book that was linked to Megaupload?

It was this book:

Never throw hardware away. I have the exact same model with DD-WRT acting as a switch because I ran out of ethernet ports on my main router. You can at least turn it into a wireless adapter for a game console.

Main router is an Asus WL-500W, modded to host the contents of my set top box hard drive via ftp.

I want to run a Tor-ifying router/middlebox in my home but I do not know where to start,what router is recommended for this ? Any good guides?

additional link for others to look in the deep future:
