Topic: WAG54GS upgrading
I have a WAG54GS router on my desk and it's currently more like an expensive brick of plastic with lights. The problem is that my internet connection isn't compatible with WAG54GS. The reason to this is my ISP and their old technology (Sonera in Finland). I've tested the device in other ADSL networks and it works just fine. I've already informed Linksys technical support about this (and so have several other persons before me) but a new firmware just ain't coming. Doing something useful with the plastic brick would be nice.
So, I found the 1.00.08 firmware as a GPL release (current is 1.00.06) but the problem is that it ain't a good-to-go kinda firmware. It includes application source codes etc so it needs to be compiled. I just don't know how. Upgrading from 1.00.06 to 1.00.08 might help me with my problem or then it might not. There are also few applications included in the 1.00.08 firmware that could be upgraded to a newer version:
iptables 1.2.8 -> 1.3.5
linux-atm 2.4.0 -> 2.4.1
mini_httpd 1.17beta1 -> 1.19
udhcp 0.9.7 -> 0.9.8
Perhaps these upgradings could be also done without compiling a completely new firmware? Telnet connection is available to my router so perhaps there is a way to upgrade that way.
I've got a Debian server running somewhere in my closet if I need to compile something but I just don't know what and how. That's where I need lots of help, help and help.
