I have just joined this forum, having been sent here from www.pchelpforum.com/ and wondered if someone could give me some advice.
I have a small project (idea) that I want to play around with and use as a learning tool.
I have a D-Link DP301 print server and a DLink router dl-614 that are expendable and I want to change the software / firmware on them. I can access them from a console and telnet into them but cannot get past the preinstalled menus. i.e. all I can get is print server settings and router configs etc.
How can I get past this and into root?
What are my challenges?
What I are my options?
I am not sure if it has an o/s (Linux) or firmware?
I read an article where someone had actually done this but I don’t know how.
They always have cheap routers, remanufactured, etc.
People always put comments about whether or not they work with dd-wrt.
You can also check the router database as well. _________________ Soylent Green Is People !
