   wrt 54GL wifi hotspot router

Flashing the firmware on a router is risky. The following instructions are for the Linksys WRT 54GL Wireless G Broadband Router.

  • Downloaded the firmware from http://hotspotexpress.in/openwrt-wrt54g-squashfs.bin and configuration file http://hotspotexpress.in/config.tgz .

  •  Power up the Linksys WRT 54GL.

  • Connect your computer or laptop wirelessly or using one of the four wired ports to the AP.
    It should give you an IP address in the 192.168.1.0/24 range.  Make sure that you can reach
    the internet and browse the web.

  • Direct your browser to "http://192.168.1.1".  The factory default username and password
    for the Linksys WRT 54GL Wireless G Broadband Router are "admin" and "admin".  You are
    now in the Linksys WRT 54GL Wireless G Broadband Router setup console.

  • Change the LAN IP as 192.168.100.1 , save and reboot Linksys WRT 54GL

  • On the  Wireless G Broadband Router, connect the port labeled "INTERNET" to any internet
    connection you have (DSL, cable modem, ethernet, etc.,).

  • Click "Browse" and select the file containing the firmware  named "openwrt-wrt54g-squashfs.bin" that you
    downloaded previously.

    Wireless G Broadband Router to reboot (about another minute - finished when the
    DMZ light turns off)

  • If you are connected wirelessly, look for the "iSpot" SSID and select it. You may need to "refresh your
    wireless networks" and/or "repair your connection" (renew your DHCP lease).
    You should receive an IP address in the 192.168.100.0/24 range.

  • Connect to "http://192.168.100.1" and enter the new password for the Linksys
    WRT 54GL Wireless G Broadband Router twice.

Technology

Our gateways provide wireless IEEE 802.11b/g/n etc. (11Mbps, 54Mbps, 700Mbps) and wired controlled Internet access. We are using Linksys and other wireless routers including appliances and PC based servers with modified software (DD-WRT, OpenWRT, RouterOS ...) in connection with our centralized US based servers.

In addition to our online Control Panel servers, we operate redundant dedicated servers for the authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) process.
In case you already have an existing wireless network, but do not have sufficient access control or too complicated set up based on MAC addresses, you can simply use our Internet Access Gateway (Internet Access Control Appliance) to start getting in control again
