Projects / Ewrt


Ewrt is a Linux distribution for the Linksys WRT54G that was forked from the Linksys and Sveasoft code bases. It is designed to meet the needs of open wireless network operators by providing a captive portal based on NoCatSplash and large-scale management functionality on a stable and low-cost platform.

        Great firmware, a little unstable
        Great firmware, lots of features I liked. Unfortunately it made my wireless go down daily and I had to reset the router each time. Perhaps with a 0.3 release it will be more stable.
