	I have an older model (DIR-655 - You've seen it). I think it's about 
two or three units older than yours. Does the new version of the 
alternate firmware you mentioned support this model?

	My original purpose was to learn about wireless technology. The thing 
is it mostly just works under Linux and OS X. Now the ever shifting goal 
is to connect various game (and other) servers to it and see what I can 
do in that area.

	Just for a smile... I had it connected to an OS X web server for a 
couple of months last year. ONLY that server and no internet access. 
Nobody bothered accessing the web server. Although I did have a script 
kiddie try to hack the router to enable (non-existent) internet access. 
They never managed to get past the router password. Apparently this had 
been going on for the better part of three months. Kind of amusing to 
think they couldn't get through an open router with out of the box 
security in all that time. ;-)
