Yeah...scary. :-) As I mentioned, with Linksys, you can't just jump to the
"big" firmware. You have to start with the "mini" firmware and upgrade that
to the full-featured firmware. Not sure why that works, but it does. :-)
Other routers may be this way as well. All I can say to those interested in
"Linux-ising" their routers is to read the how-to for their particular
model on the DD-WRT website. There's also OpenWRT, I think, although I've
never tried it.
