    new to these forums :)

    Ive started getting interested in the linksys wrt router but am a bit confused about what you can really do with the 3rd party firmware?

    Can you really run linux (not VxWorks)?
    How Can you communicate with it?
    What can you get it to do?
    Can you get it to run linux applications?
    I know one model came with a usb connector for NAS, could you configure the linksys to run a torrent client/server?

    What can you or can't do with it within reason?

    Thanks for your help, look forward to getting my hands on one of these!

    I know to stay away from the v5

    Is the sd card and serial hack compatible with all versions of the WRT54GS
