Linux Devices reports that the first wireless 802.11n draft-compliant systems run Linux. This is good news for those who follow the 3rd Party firmware industry and employ one of the many feature rich solutions from companies like Sveasoft, DD-WRT, etc.
In fact, the first commercial Draft N product off the shelves from Linksys, the WRT300N seems to use a lot of open source code, which is easily available to be modified (hacked) and added enhanced. Unless Linksys pulls another WRT54G v5 bomb, draft N looks like it will be amenable to such amenities as doubling as a webserver, VPN server, operate in client mode, use WDS etc.
Anyone who wants to get a head start on the project need only wade through the 178MB GPL source code. Sounds like another one of those 11pm – 3am while the wife’s in bed projects 😉
