I was thinking more of the WRT54G, which comes with source for the
Linux kernel used.  Of course the very first thing I did with it was
scrub the old configuration and compile Linux for it.

But the WAG54G, although it looks superficially similar to the WRT54G,
doesn't appear to be running Linux, although perhaps it's a little
hard to tell.  Linksys aren't offering any source code for it on the
GPL page of their site, and I grabbed the firmware image but it
appears to be compressed and/or encrypted.

Does it run Linux?  Hard to tell ...
