I recently acquired a Linksys WRT54GL with the intention of putting TomatoUSB or some other open-source firmware on it, to act as an IPv6 gateway.
I turned it on, ran through the default Linksys setup, changed the IP address, etc., and verified that it didn't seem to have IPv6 support.
I flashed it with "WRT54G_WRT54GL.bin" from Tomato 1.28 (MD5 88dd95ca789d455ef9975718383fa918). That's 2.4 kernel, still no IPv6 support. I turned off telnet and turned on SSH, verified that that worked.
Now comes TomatoUSB. I downloaded file "tomato-K26-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-Std.rar" from the TomatoUSB SourceForge site, took out file "tomato-K26-1.28.9054MIPSR2-beta-Std.trx" (MD5 fd129513969cca0cca35a674e98aff44), and flashed it.
Now the "Power" light flashes quickly and I can't figure out how to connect to the device. I've done "nmap" against both the "192.168.1.0" network and against the network I moved it to, and I don't see anything responding.
- Was that the right firmware file? If not, which one should I have used? (or is it possible to run kernel 2.6 on a WRT54GL at all?)
- How do I get back to a usable state … either the Linksys image, or plain Tomato?
