    PacketProtector now offers a 'Light' version for routers with at least 4MB of flash and 16MB of RAM-

    Linksys WRT54GL
    Linksys WRT54G (versions 1-4)
    Linksys WRT54GS (versions 1-4)

    Here's what you get-

    * a stateful firewall (iptables)
    * intrusion prevention (Snort-inline)
    * remote access VPN (OpenVPN)
    * anti-phishing (OpenDNS)
    * automatic updates (for Snort)
    * a local certificate authority (OpenSSL)
    * secure management interfaces (SSH and HTTPS)
    * advanced firewall scripts for blocking IM and P2P apps
    * IP spoofing prevention (Linux rp_filter)
    * basic protocol anomaly detection (ipt_unclean)

    Holla at your boy,
    Charlie

    How do you install it on the flash? (I have a GL to test, not an WRTSL54GS-USB ports, as in the link).

    Sorry, we're a little behind on updating the front page and wiki. :(

    As HennieM said, you can use the .bin to update via your router's current web interface. The defaults settings are the same as with the full version-

    * wireless disabled
    * telnet and HTTP disabled
    * SSH and HTTPS enabled
    * username=root, password=packetprotector

    Thanks!
    Charlie
