Linksys provides Linux source code for wireless access points

Linksys has published the Linux based source code for their WET54gv2 Access Point. There is already a big movement regarding the WRT54g Wireless Router Linux firmware here.

This is bound to spread and pressure other manufacturers as well, as most of the routers and APs are based on the same chipsets. I highly welcome this move by Linksys, and I suspect this will make their systems quite popular. Already, enhanced versions of the firmware are being made available, which helps sell routers without having to spend the R&D budget.

I’m considering getting one as well, if only to see what can be done…
