    I can't see why it isn't working other than bootpage or kernel issues.

    I thought I had. :(
    re-zipper
    a re-image shouldn't be needed
    pay very close attention to what the tool says your active partition is and make sure there are no errors when it copies the kernel you got from the 5 dollar boot cd making sure it's version 3.1.5

    HyperWRT is the best for a newbie, it's built around the original linksys firmware... if you're just looking to make add some options like WET (wireless ethernet bridge mode), hyperwrt+tofu or hyperwrt+thibor is for you.

    http://www.linksysinfo.org/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewforum&f=25

    checkout this thread there: Which WRT54G/GS do I have.

    also, check out this firmware comparison: http://www.linksysinfo.org/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=31

    I never tried the HyperWRT, b/c I found the features on the DD-WRT (the former modded Sveasoft) firmware to be too nice to pass up. I run Kaid off the router for my X-Box, WDS, have VPN capability and much more.

    When I first started using the modified Alchemy fw, HyperWRT was not as developed. I see many of the features are the same, but I have not dealt with HyperWRT to compare.

    Just looked at the HyperWRT links. It looks very interesting. The project has come along alot farther than when I last looked a year ago.

    I just finished upgrading to Alchemy 23b and I am not in the mood to troubleshoot my wireless connections while I am playing with my Tivos.

    Does the Zipper work on the Toshiba RS-TX20 or RS-TX60? What additions or hacks would be added to the system with this hack?

    I re-downloaded a PTV boot disk. It appears the kernel is newer than the one I was using. I re-ran zipper but I am still stuck at the power on screen.

    BTW, zipper reports my active partition as hda7.

    Still searching and reading....

    Does anyone know the difference between a Netgear FA-120R and a FA-120SE. Justdeals.com has the SE in stock at $22.95. The R model is listed at $12.95 but is out of stock currently.
