that would net me 5 bucks max
You can install some GNU/Linux on it and mess around with that? OpenWRT says they no longer support it because it does not have enough memory but you could still try setting up something.
that was the first thing I thought of, but I'm not sure how exactly as it doesn't really want me to edit anything, even the stuff im supposed to edit.
ok, figured out how to set it up, now I just need a distro that will run on this. I think I'll try to set up a wifi that sends you some files when you connect and doesn't let any other traffic thru to troll wifi leeches.
