“A Disruptive Technology"

linksys_wrt54g-thm.jpgThanks Van, I got Linksys WRT54G stories “The Little Engine That Could: How Linux is Inadvertently Poised to Remake the Telephone and Internet Markets" of in return of Wireless London Report.

If you have a WRT54G, here’s what you can use it for after less than an hour’s work. You get all the original Linksys functions plus SSH, Wonder Shaper, L7 regexp iptables filtering, frottle, parprouted, the latest Busybox utilities, several custom modifications to DHCP and dnsmasq, a PPTP server, static DHCP address mapping, OSPF routing, external logging, as well as support for client, ad hoc, AP, and WDS wireless modes.

If that last paragraph meant nothing at all to you, look at it this way: the WRT54G with Sveasoft firmware is all you need to become your cul de sac’s wireless ISP. Going further, if a bunch of your friends in town had similarly configured WRT54Gs, they could seamlessly work together and put out of business your local telephone company.

That’s what I mean by a disruptive technology.

  1. mjhsieh 告訴我,他比較喜歡買 AirPort Express 而不是買這個超級 nerdy 產品。(哈哈哈,這應該是 Mac Unix Hacker 的心情吧)

    ben 告訴我,CISCO 最近在購併 Riverhead Network 公司之後,有推出一款 DDOS Guard Machine 然後賣的超好。就是用 Linux 當骨頭來熬的….
