    WRT54G v5.0 has DD-WRT available for it.

    I know but I need that special JTAG-Cable for flashing it.
    I havnt got the resistors in the house at the moment for creating the cable. So thats why i asked.

    2 of the 5 routers has satory-project running, so they got WDS.
    The other 3 are the version 5 linksys routers.

    Yeah I noticed, i've upgrade the firmware to 1.00.9 now. on these 3 version 5 routers.

    Entered their mac into the wds of a satory 4.0 running router.
    Checked some stuff and fixed some mac-based security.

    It works, need to tweak some settings a bit, since the trouhtput is a bit shitty. sometimes fast but mostly slow connections..

    Ayway I still think Linksys rocks. (even while they changed from linux to vmware.)

    So problem solved. But thanks anyway ..

    Monday ill get some resistors and make the JTAG cable.
    Then im going to play with DD-WRT - micro.
