I have a laptop wit the following configuration: Fujitsu Siemens V3505, Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo T5300@1,73GHz, 1GB RAM, Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG.
OS:Fedora Core 6 64bit
Wireless driver: ipw3945.

I bought an Asus Wireless Router: Asus WL-500G Premium. After playing with the firmware(OpenWRT, Oleg) and bricking it twice, i decided to try DD-WRT.
1)set ip on laptop with netmask, gateway
2)Connect the LAN1 port on the router with an ethernet cable to the laptop
3)unplug power cord from wl-500gP (WL-500G Premium)
4)press and hold with a pen/pencil the RESET button.
5)while the RESET button is pressed, insert the power cord.
6)after the POWER led starts flashing, release the RESET button.
NOW your router is in restore mode.
7)open a console window on the laptop and type:
>put wl500g-clear-nvram.trx
8)after the transfer is completed, wait 6 minutes
9)unplug the power cord from wl-500gP
10)wait 10 seconds
11)simply plug in the power cord into the wl-500gP
12)type on the console
>put wl500g-recover.trx
13)after the transfer is completed, wait 6 minutes
14)unplug the power cord from wl-500gP
15)wait 10 seconds
16)simply plug in the power cord into the wl-500gP
17)type on the console
>put dd-wrt.v23_asus.trx
18)after the transfer is completed, wait 6 minutes
19)unplug the power cord from wl-500gP
20)wait 10 seconds
21)simply plug in the power cord into the wl-500gP and enjoy.

Connect to wl-500gP:

Connect to wl-500gP through web browser:

In the wireless section configure the router to use the WPA encryption algoritm. Use WPA and TKIP.
On laptop i use wifi-radar, an user friendly program, written in python.
I set the password and the encryption algoritm and i press connect.
And that is all.

PS: if you brick(router is dead) wl-500gP, you have to use a wire to shortcut PIN 9.
