PIF: Linksy WRT54G Router

Fri Jul 13, 2018 9:46 pm

Super old router but it doesn’t look like it’s ever been used. Plugged it in, lights up. Apparently not plug and play though; connected to default network but no internet connection - maybe the sticker saying “run CD first” means something.

I don’t have a cd-drive so I can’t test it. No reason it shouldn’t work. New in box. Free to someone who needs it.

*my plug and play test was a half ass attempt to verify function, normally I’d connect to router settings through a computer but I was busy*

Located in Burien and frequent DT Seattle.

Can you take a quick snap of the sticker on the bottom so I can see what hardware revision it is?

Also, make sure you update the firmware. This is one of the virus vulnerable routers.
Also, you don't need the CD. That gives you a bunch of friendly setup stuff. You can just plug into a LAN port and make sure your computer/laptop is set to DHCP. Use the command prompt to find what the gateway is and use that address to browse to the admin page. User/password for these is likely admin, admin .
These work OK but the Wireless G is rather long in the tooth. Will still work for basic stuff though.

Was hoping it'd do lede, but it looks like the RAM and flash are too small.
