Older WRT54G routers (prior to V5, I believe), ran Linux and can easily be
upgraded to alternative firmware. WRT54G V5 and above have reduced
resources, and cannot be upgraded to alternative firmware. The WRT54GL was
introduced after the V5 version, to fill the demand for the devices that
can run alternative firmware.

Unfortunately, the spare they have is not the L version which accepts
alternate Linux firmware so OpenWRT is not an option (unless they buy a

I think other most models of the WRT54G work with OpenWRT and/or dd-wrt.
The 'L' version was just an attempt to make it easier (and slightly
more expensive) for people who wanted to get in to the fun without doing
a lot of research about model numbers before buying.

So if you are interested in alternate firmwares, check out the projects'
hardware lists. They even have non-Linksys models on there.
