one more free box around me
during the last months we had problems with the internet connection at our office. I decided to exchange the router in order be to able to eliminate one possible culprit. I went to buy a linksys wrt54gl ('L' as in 'Linux'), connected the cables, configured the box via the typical web interface, &: no connection to the internet via the funny austrian adsl (i.e. pptp) connection. the router got a connection but not a single packet went to the host at the other end of the tunnel. time to implement my "secret" plans for the router: after reading the docs I installed openwrt, changed some settings (for pptp, for wpa encryption, for port forwarding), & one ifdown/ifup wan/wifi later it worked like a charm. now let's see if the connection becomes more stable; if not then it's not the old router's fault, & I'll use the 'free' wrt54gl at home. update: a few weeks later it's still running without any problems; so the connection issues at the office are solved; & I need to buy another wrt54gl if I want to have one at home ;-) — 2006-12-12
