The WRT54GL is a hacker's dream Wi-Fi router, capable of running third-party firmware and upping its signal power internally. A brave Instructables user shows how to go whole-hog on the blue box—extended antennas, fan-cooled overclocking, and the DD-WRT interface.

    That's the router I have. I haven't had time to play with it yet though.

    I bet you could pick up Internet radio stations with your fillings once this thing is modified.

      That occurred to me last night. I wonder if by increasing the signal output you could inadvertently create interference, thereby placing you in violation of FCC guidelines.
