OpenWRT on a Linksys WRT54G

The following documentation is for installing the OpenWRT
firmware on the Linksys WRT54G. I decided I would take 
advantage of my router and all of it's features.

root@OpenWrt:~# cd /etc/init.d/
root@OpenWrt:~# rm S50telnet

3) Install some sniffing tools

Install tcpdump

root@OpenWrt:~# ipkg install tcpdump

Install dsniff

root@OpenWrt:~# ipkg install dsniff

4) Setup WPA to work

The configuration was already taken from my router.
Therefore, I just needed to install the package.

root@OpenWrt:~# ipkg install nas

5) Install screen 

root@OpenWrt:~# ipkg install screen

Time to call it a night.
