Hello all,

At the "21. Internationale Packet-Radio Tagung", which was held on the 2nd 
of April 2005 in Darmstadt, Germany, Jann Traschewski, DG8NGN, and Thomas 
Osterried, DL9SAU, showed a WRT54GS LinkSys WLAN modem running several HAM 
programs, among which DIGI_NED. These modems run Linux on an MIPS 
processor and are available in Europe and the USA for about EUR 75.-- or 
$60.-- (yes, as always the USD - Euro exchange rate doesn't seem to apply 
to electronics...).

Jann Traschewski, DG8NGN, Ralf Baechle, DL5RB and Thomas Osterried, DL9SAU 
crafted a page with the instructions how to get it running. Jann allowed 
me to publish the page, it is located at:


The project is currently not progressing because the hams mentioned above 
are very busy with non-ham related activities (i.e. QRL). So please don't 
expect any support at this time. Still I think the instructions are clear 
enough to act as a good starting point to try something like this yourself.

Kind regards,
