    Hey all,

    I'm considering taking up the Linksys/Vonage deal, but I was wondering of the various 3rd party firmware packages will work with it?

    Thanks for any info you can provide!

    The source code for this product has been released, so there may or may not be 3rd party development for it - it will mostly likely depend on how well the product is received and how much you encourage your local firmware hacker to work on it ;-) Don't give up hope yet.

    I had a look at the source code. the WRTP54G doesn't have much to do with the 'real' WRT. It's not Broadcom-based, but actually Texas Instruments AR7 (like WAG54Gv2, ADSL2MUE, etc.)
    So when OpenWrt is supported on the WAG, it will probably work on the WRTP54G as well (see WAG54Gv2 threads for more information).
