First, change router name (to SM_WRT_23) in Linksys web interface

Next, under administration -> Firmware Upgrade, upload openwrt-wrt54g-2.4-squashfs.bin (from Sept 30, 2007; kamikaze 7.09)

telnet in; passwd root (set to standard); now telnet won't work (that's correct); and ssh won't work.. and gives a "no page" error.. Power cycle; ok--ssh works; still no web!

don't use kamikaze!! I did the "upgrade" to White Russian (0.9) and web is there...

~ We were able to log into brick 58 via ethernet, but sieral port was not working. We think it might be the null modem cable, further diagnostics will be needed. Started to make changes on SD card for brick 58.
