Or tried configuring it and thought that it would be easier to use a command line than the terrible user interface the manufacturer graced it with?

This presentation will go over some of the basics of OpenWRT such as installation, customization, and administration. In addition, a few cool ideas for how to get more out of your router or other device will be talked about.
