Last month US carrier T-Mobile introduced their @Home product. With it a compatible T-Mobile cellphone can connect to T-Mobile’s cellular network via any T-Mobile or open WiFi hotspot. Thus homes and business with poor coverage can, in effect, set up their own cell base-station. There are also some nice service plan benefits (for +$10 unlimited free calling while connected via WiFi, etc.) Why I’m posting here is that one of the routers T-Mobile offers as part of this program is a WRT54G-TM (for $50 w/ $50 rebate). It appears to be similar to the WRT54GL with a slightly different chipset and some custom coding. Nobody has been able to reflash it so far, and it does have a trick unavailable (yet!) elsewhere. There is a power-saving mode not (yet!) widely supported, UAPSD which is part of WMM™ Power Save, described as “the same amount of data can be transmitted in a shorter time while allowing the Wi-Fi device to remain longer in a low-power ”dozing“ state.” (Far better explanation, & the spec). I’m posting in the hope that this feature could get added to my much appreciated Tomato firmware. I’ve seen other parts of the same set of specifications so I suspect folks are already aware of it. Indeed I believe Windows Mobile 6 also takes advantage of this so there is an expanding set of clients. I my case my trusty WRT54GS running Tomato “outshines” the new WRT54TM, leading to my cellphone preferentially connecting to Tomato and thus running it’s battery down faster then need be. Any interest in this is appreciated.
