Turn your  router into a 0 router

Router Conversion

Adam says, 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. – Updated to Original Source Link

  1. One of the nice features of this software is the ability to build wireless links. I have one main router connected to dsl in the house and a wireless link out to the workshop where normal laptop wireless and the PC cant pick up the house router. Serves as an intercom link as well with skype.

  2. I see a lot of allegations of stealing here. If you check out the article carefully, you will notice that the author is credited, and at the end of the article, there is the following text:

    Adam Pash is an associate editor for Lifehacker who loves a good signal boost. His special feature Hack Attack appears every Tuesday on Lifehacker. Subscribe to the Hack Attack RSS feed to get new installments in your newsreader.

    So it appears to me that “The Knights of Kaos” are giving credit where credit is due.

    To be fair though, that might have appeared after the plagiarism claims were made here.

    Disclaimer: I have no association with either of the websites Lifehacker or The Knights of Kaos.

  3. blubrick: It’s plagiarism… The “citation” that appears on the article is included in the original article… the only reason it’s there is because it’s in the original. The entire text, word for word, link for link is copied from the Lifehacker article.

    Fair use = citing a portion of an article.

  4. You can get a $100 router with bandwidth limiting. The hardware still falls quite short compared to a $600 model.

    Not that it isnt cool to do, but its been around for ages.
