"Adam @ Lifehacker's how to on installing linux on a Linksys WRT54GL - "Of all the great DIY projects
at this year's Maker Faire, the one project that really caught my eye involved converting a regular
old $60 router into a powerful, highly configurable $600 router. The router has an interesting
history, but all you really need to know is that the special sauce lies in embedding Linux in your
router. I found this project especially attractive because: 1) It's easy, and 2) it's totally free."
