I have been looking for a custom firmware for this router...but haven't found anything on the net! Microsofts firmware for this thing SUCKS! But I think it could be an awesome router with the right firmware. (great signal and range). I knew it was a broadcom, so I took a few snaps of the innards to see if it was another router branded with the "microsoft" name.
sure enough, the Microsoft name is on the PCB...but all the chips look very standard...like they could run Linux!
Here is the radio (wireless card):
PLEASE let me know if you find ANY compatible firmware for this thing...even if it is a stock netgear/buffalo/etc. Stock Linksys wouldn't be bad. Most of all, I want to enable wireless bridge/AP Client mode. Please email me if you find out anything
