I am a volunteer with the Personal Telco Project, located in Portland, Oregon USA. The Personal Telco Project is a 501c3 non-profit Community Wireless Network. I first became involved in 2005, and very soon became the technical lead on a mesh network, and then was involved in building software infrastructure for our mostly hot-spot networks. In 2006, I started building OpenWrt particularly for use with wifi mapping devices, initially running on Netgear WGT634U. Over time, use expanded to support myriad tasks, including scientific data loggers, network gateways, batman-adv mesh networks, and dumb access points. I currently maintain a test bed consisting of:
I also have a few Linksys WRT54G and Buffalo WHR-HP-54G still in shrink wrap, but most of the WRT54G's have gone to recycling. We have a considerable supply of the WGT634Us still and still have a few deployed.
