   Tutorial: Adding an SD card reader to your Linksys WRT54G 

By Rasmus Rohde and Mads Ulrik Kristoffersen 

Voor de echte lefhebbers

How to proceed
For the SD card to work we need to attach 6 wires inside the router. This drawing of the SD card should give an idea of the pins that come into play:

CS - Chip Select for the SD card
DI - Data in on the SD card.
VSS - Ground is a good thing
VDD - We need power of course. 3.3V will do the job
CLK - The clock we generate for the SD card
VSS2 - Another ground is also a good thing
DO - Data out from the SD card

Er hoort ook nog een progje geschreven in C(++) plus een Make file bij.

Dit is eigenlijk best wel gaaf. Een 2 Gb SD card erin en je hebt een fluisterstille, kleine en zuinige linux webserver!
Firmware update: IPv6(+IPv4) support voor de WRT54g.
Leuk als je een IPv6 adress hebt bij SixXS!

Ohja, kan trouwens ook met de openwrt firmware, eigenlijk veel mooier :)

Linksys WRT54G and WRT54GS Models
Must be running a suitable third party firmware such as HyperWRT, SveaSoft, DD-WRT, etc as the native Linksys firmware does not support external logging tools like Link Logger.

SveaSoft Satori and Alchemy
heb ik iets vernomen over WPA maar deze schijnt alleen met SP2 overweg te kunnen en niet met sp1.

Asl dat zo is dan is me alles duidelijk, heb alleen SP1.

Is iemand hiermee bekent?
SP2 heeft ingebouwde ondersteuning voor WPA.
Er bestaat echter een patch voor XP die dit ook zonder sp2 mogelijk maakt.
Misschien heb jij er iets aan.
