Here's an even odder one on my ideas.

    So I unbricked my WRT54GSv1 after months of being bricked and set it up for WDS which gives me a great connection through out my house and back yard now. But being the tinkerer I have an ODD idea.

    Without too much specifics for the moment, Could the router be used as a dedicated server for an Internet multiplayer game?
    The game itself is 512kb. I'm not sure of the CPU or memory requirements running dedicated on Linux at the moment.

    In theory, yes. Now it will need to be compiled from source and you will probably need to run openwrt. But it would most likely be slower than hell. You should probably just host it on your pc and open up the correct port via port forwarding.

    For compilation instrucstions take a look at the openwrt wiki.

    Its actually not that difficult if you have broadband, and a relative knowledge of the idea behind compiling stuff.

    Thanks. I kinda figured that out later about compiling. ):

    Just out of curiosity, what game is it that you are looking to play?

    It has to be pretty old to be that small.
