    hello and thanks for reading this
    i patch my WRT54G as instructed and it work jsut fine.
    i just love it.
    when i tried to add the batbox.tar, the addon page would seem to work but it does not display and output text or stdout.
    so i can not figure what the problem.
    then i tried to enter each command in the command script dialog box.
    when i enter the command
    wget: batbox.tar: Read-only file system

    i finally get some output and it i
    wget: batbox.tar: Read-only file system

    any ideas?

    thanks so much,

    has batbox been installed on your WRT54G at all?

    in addons add the following, giving it some time to download the file from the net first.

    sleep 5
    wget -P /tmp http://www.WRT54G.com/firmware/HyperWRT/batbox.tar
    tar -x -f /tmp/batbox.tar -C /
    chmod +x /tmp/batbox.sh
    rm /tmp/batbox.tar

    i did not help but..

    thanks for the answer but it is the same as the instructions on the website.
    your solution did not ven address my probem that i get a 'read-only filesystem' when i use wget.
    well, since my wrtgs says it is a read-only file system', nothing got download.

    if anyone has another suggestion other then just pasting in unchnaged code from the website, that would be great .

    afaik once the commands have been done as above the batbox becomes read only.

    Personally I would rid of all files from the installation by just pressing reset for 30 seconds and start again. this time issuing the commands line by line, and giving some time for the wget commands to download the batbox.tar file from the internet.
