Using Screen or similar on WRT54GL?

    Hi everybody.

    I have previously tried to ask for support on keeping a shell connection on my WRT54GL router. I have to be connected to a SSH firewall. I described my problem here:

    The problem is that I can connect to the firewall through Telnet and with the current firmware on my router but when I close telnet the connection is lost after a little while.

    I was told that Screen is a program that should make it possible to keep such connections. I also found this minor tutorial/description, which confirms it:

    Is there any possibility to install screen on the router or something similar so that the router can maintain my firewall connection so I don't have to login after each reboot of my computer?

    Regards Martin
