VOIP on linksys WRT54GS
Hope this isn't too off topic. I have played with linux for years and have just started to do a lot of work on my linksys WRT54GS. After reading some posts on the internet people have been loading OPENWRT (a linux distro) and Asterisk onto the routers and have been able to use these systems and a wireless access point, router and Asterisk VOIP server.
So far I have been able to flash open wrt onto my router and install asterisk but I haven't been able to fully configure it.
I was hoping some people on this forum might take and interest in the project and help develop a clear set of instructions on how to do this.
Here is my work log.
My idea is to have one of these access points in the car running asterisk and then have the computer loaded with a sip client. When the router gets an 802.11b/g signal you would be able to make calls.
OpenWRT blows. Use Sveasoft unless you want to spend the next 6 weeks configuring openwrt.
Sorry I am new to this. Why is Sveasoft better, does it come pre-configured with more moduels?
I just used the same firmware in the tutorial I found.
OpenWRT forces you to start off from scratch. Sveasoft gives you a much better basis to start with. Think of it as Linksys firmware on steroids, rather than an open Linksys firmware all bare bones.
YES, but if you arent going to use it as a router open wrt is best.
if you load sevasoft their probably wont be room to load *.
If you are going to use any other 3rd party frirmware use DD-WRT its based off sevasoft code but you dont have to go thugh the bull**** with james the owner on sevasoft... do a search on it and you will see the big controversy that has been going on with sevasoft...
Eh. I installed OpenWRT and had the box running in an hour with an NTP client, a dynamic DNS update program, PPPoE, static mappings for a few machines for the DHCP server, a few port forwards, and WPA-PSK/AES. If you have Linux experience, go with OpenWRT, it's a lot more flexible. Go with the other firmware offerings if you want a few extra features without having to futz with anything.
I'm researching this too, as I just got a version 3 WRT54G. Here is my story:
Hi friends, I've been hearing more and more lately that people, who use VoIP (voice over internet protocol) as their "home telephone" service instead of a landline, often run into trouble if they need to make 911 calls. Specifically, those 911 operators are unable to tell where you are calling from. Is it true that VoIP users have trouble with 911 calls? Thanks for your help. Have a nice day.

Yes, but the problem is being addressed.
