Netgear's WGR614L: WiFi router open source
  

Eighteen months after leaving the KWGR614, Netgear is about to repeat the experience of the firmware "open" with the WGR614L, a model 802.11g (54 Mbps), which the U.S. manufacturer hopes doubtless see himself as a new benchmark in open source environments, alongside the famous WRT54G Linksys. The user will have the opportunity to integrate this router firmware of his choice, among those made available by the community, as well as instruct some very specific applications in order to adapt the functionality of its WGR614L real needs.

On a technical level, the WGR614L embeds a 32-bit MIPS processor clocked at 240 MHz, with 4 MB Flash memory and 16 megabytes of RAM. A chip Broadcom 5354 is responsible for managing the network, an external antenna 2 dBi providing the bulk of wireless transmission. The latter is supported by a second antenna, internal this time.

Equipped with four 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports, WGR614L offers the main features you would expect of a wireless router, the automatic allocation of IP addresses (DHCP) in static and dynamic routing, via care protocols IPSec or L2TP, or a system of firewalls per inspection of packages. On the side of wireless protocols WEP, WPA, WPA2-PSK and WPS are logically supported.

Netgear welcomes the support of the community myopenrouter.com site, which already offers several alternative firmware for WGR614L, starting with initiatives Tomato or DD-WRT, which, among other things, a real-time management of the band passante LAN and exchanges outwards. The WGR614L should make its entry on the market in the coming days, at a price of $69.

it would be nice if other manufacturers (and not only in the area networks) could do the same.
