OpenWrt has come a long way
So I've had a PoS Dell 2300 TrueMobile router (wonder how much iDefense paid for this) I bought used at Discount Electronics (God I miss that place, half the gear in my basement if from there, interesting to see they are part of a campaign to keep Walmart out of our old neighborhood back in Austin) sitting on the basement floor for months. I decided I'd give OpenWrt a try again. Downloaded version 0.9, installed openwrt-brcm-2.4-squashfs.trx through the Dell web interface, and figured I'd bricked it and boom the web interface came up. Wow!
