Modified Linksys WRT54GL




Do you want to extend the range of your wireless router, share the internet with your neighbors, or provide a communal open hotspot for anyone?

These pages contain simple modifications, hacks and instructions for improving the performance of your WiFi router, phone and other devices. All tutorials are simple and easy to follow. In addition to these mods you will also find VOIP information and hacks.

Low cost is my main guiding principle. I use existing materials as much as possible. Most of these projects do not lock you into using specific parts so you may use whatever is available to you.

I'm not overly techy and only have basic tools at my disposal so simplicity is another factor.

There is already plenty of WiFi hack information available on the Internet. Some of my projects are additions to existing tutorials. I have linked to the source material so you may use the original instructions and return here for improvements.
