Why [URL removed] ? ;)

There's an ongoing project to "bring some power" into other D-Link
devices (from DSL series; one of them, DSL-G604T (which I own) has
an access point too) at http://mcmcc.bat.ru/dlinkt/ . This stuff is
also based on the same design, it seems (but I know right to nothing
about all this arm stuff - wasn't even able to compile a cross-gcc
for it yet). McMCC (the author of this whole work) figured out the
layout of the firmware images and mtd devices, and got D-Link stuff
(out of http://ftp.dlink.ru/pub/ADSL/GPL_source_code/ ) to build and
run on those boards...

BTW, DSL series has telnet by default (user root, password is the
one set in the admin interface, default is 'admin'). And the whole
webinterface looks very similar (but this DWL-G730AP device has some
"advanced" controls for the wireless component which are absent in
my DSL-G604T).
