At HOPE, EFF releases code for Open Wireless router

router-1b
At last weekend’s HOPE Conference in New York City, the EFF released the code for their experimental hacker alpha wireless router software specifically designed to support secure, shareable Open Wireless networks.

We are offering this hacker alpha release to engage enthusiastic technical users who would like to help us test, develop, improve, and harden the Open Wireless Router. Currently the software runs on one specific model of hardware (the Netgear WNDR3800) and is based on the CeroWRT project. If you have a WNDR3800 router, you can get the developer preview image here and learn how to flash it here. If you’d like to hack on the code base, you can find code and instructions on building it at Github.
