Hi! I have not seen this posted anywhere so here goes :
as many know the WAP54G runs a MIPS version of the Linux operating system, the firmware file that anyone can download from linksys support site contains a bootloader and the filesystem that runs on the AP.
firmware = 2MB
the first 800k are probably the kernel or PMON
the last 1.2MB are the filesystem.
on any linux system with support for cramfs and the loop file system do this :
open firmware file (2MB) in a text editor like vim or joe and delete all data (first 800k) up to this data
save file (now we have a 1.2MB file) with the begining "E=Í(............Compressed ROMFS"
now we can mount this filesystem on any linux box
mount -o loop -t cramfs /name.of.1.2MB.file /mnt
now we can see the files inside. in the www directory there is a file called dummy.asp.
try opening it using your browser.
here we have options to change the mac address of the AP, look inside the NVRAM, look at the kernel messages....
the POWER options seem to reduce the power ... so no luck yet (32mW is just too low)
there is another cgi script -> http://IP.ADDR.WAP54G/pmon.cgi
I do not know what this does but a guess it puts the AP in PMON mode http://pmon.groupbsd.org/
I post this to see if someone finds new information about the WAP54G and how one can modifiy its parameters.
I did not find any dummy.asp in the WRT54G firmware....
