Jan 24, 2010 The most hacked router in the world ever

Routerbot V3 - the Most Hacked Router in the World Ever
I just published a new video and a new article about “The most hacked router in the world ever” project. The idea behind this project is obviously to hack router to the extreme. I searched the Internet, found all known hacks about routers, added a few I never seen implemented in routers and built the device. The result appeared to be very useful and quite cool.


The project has a very important for me second purpose – to become an attractor for IT professionals, so I can promote my resume among people involved in IT business. In fact the video is a hack itself. A quick research shown that there are plenty of video resumes available on youtube, but even the most popular of them have less views then, say, my routerbot v1 video. Employers are just not interested in searching for employees on youtube. It looks like making just a video resume is not a good idea if you’re looking for job asap like I do. The solution that I came to is to combine your resume with something that will bring people’s attention to it. I’ll keep you informed how this idea works, possibly it will help you to find job too. This video is the first in series. The device I built just has so many features that the video about it got too long and I decided to release it part by part. So if you’re interested about the project keep watching. BTW, this is my fifth video at all and the very first one where I say something into the camera, so please don’t judge me too quickly. It’s really difficult to say something in camera. Try it if you don’t believe.

    Hi,

    I’ve seen your post on the hack of the Linksys wrt54g. It is amazing…
    I’m now looking for something similar to what you did, because I want to add to my router the support for X10 wireless protocol.
    I then could control my old mother far home X10 appliances (purchased but not installed yet) via a router (I’ve the Netgear FWG114P but I can buy another one if necessary) avoiding 1 hr of car to go and switch

    Would you be so kind to share your knowledge / what you did with me?

    Many thanks in advance for any reply.

    Carlo,

    Thank you for your very ind words. I’m in the middle of job-hunting right now so unfortunately don’t have much time for hobby. I definitely will publish the DIY instructions sometime around mid-March alone with the next video demonstrating new features. Another reason for delaying the DIY is that I’m building v3.1 that is cheaper and easier to implement with more features provided.

    Unfortunately I didn’t find much about FWG114P. It looks like it is low in RAM/Flash amnt, so might be unsuitable for hacking. I would highly recommend Linksys WRT54G-series as the best one from price/hackability prospective. Asus WL-500GP series is another good alternative.

    Regards,
    Andrey
