    Hello! I'm a Linux dummie and humbly ask all you experts here for help.

    I'd like my WRT54G v1.0 (wifibox firmware) to perform ipfiltering like the software programs ProtoWall and PeerGuardian. Various searches leads me to believe this can be accomplished with iptables on the WRT54G.

    I've gotten this far:

    1) Get blocklist (for example using blocklist manager »

    2) Convert blocklist to iptables bash script at »

    3) Telnet into WRT54G

    Now I'm stuck. Do I need to run the script to create iptables? Or ftp the file into the router and name it iptables in the correct directory?

    These lists can get quite large, will memory in the WRT54G be a problem? I feel like I'm almost there, please respond if you know how to do this.

    Found a tab in the http setup where a bash script can be entered. Works when the script is only few lines, however, it crashes with many lines.

    Anybody know how much memory is available for bash scripts in a v1.0? Any use upgrading to v2.0 or a different model, maybe I need a new router to get this to work.
