 The Open Source WRT54G Story

Great article. Tells all about the WRT54G and how it became a hackers favorite toy (or at least one of them).

"The story of the Linksys Wireless-G Router (model WRT54G) and how you can turn a $60 router into a $600 router is a little bit CSI and a little bit Freaks & Geeks. It's also the story of how the open source movement can produce a win-win scenario for both consumers and commercial vendors. What's especially exciting is that tricking out this router doesn’t require any eBay sleuthing or other hunt for some off-the-wall piece of hardware. Instead, grab it off-the-shelf. The WRT54G is stacked high in every Best Buy and Circuit City across the country and, of course, most online retailers Amazon.com sells it for $55. It's ubiquitous and, some would say, a diamond in the rough. Or a wolf in sheep's clothing."
