    First Post! :D Im glad to be part of this community! I am about to do some mods on my wrt54gs v2.1 and I was wondering, what firmware should I be running to use most or all of these possible mods. Ive seen openwrt and I am getting into linux but only know basic shell opperations. Is this the best? Are there easier ones? Thankyou!

    P.S. What is a good first mod and what would I need? (not counting a fan...) also, is a USB port or lcd screen possible on my router?

    Check out this site:


    Go halfway down the page to the OpenWRT Customization section and you'll see links to info. on how to add both USB and LCD. Also, I don't think that you need to use OpenWRT for all of the mods, but some of them may require it. HyperWRT is a great firmware, I highly recommend it. The idea of HyperWRT is to make a custom firmware that stays close to the original Linksys version, but adds a few extras and remains fast. Here is their official site:

    Thank-you! Ill try out hyperWRT for just testing it out but I think ill try out openwrt. Also, do all the mods for WRT54G work for the gs. The intructions are for the G but can I follow it exacly on my GS? Thanks
