DD-Wrt Micro on Linksys WRT54Gv6

WRT54Gv6

Today on a whim I decided to pickup a Linksys WRT54Gv6 wireless router from Staples. It was on sale for $20 off and looked like the last one there. I’ve been looking at the DD-Wrt software for some time since I have an old junky wireless router buried in my closet at home. Unfortunately the old router I have cannot run DD-Wrt so when I saw this one on sale I thought I’d give the WRT54G a try.

Site Redesign

Screen shot of jasonernst.com theme

So I’ve finally gotten around to making my own site design rather than modifying one of the themes available on WordPress.org. I’m pretty happy with what I have so far. It’s not completely finished yet but I’ve learned alot about the WordPress system while I’ve worked on this theme. I’m planning on making it available for free for anyone who wants to use it after I clean it up a bit more. Look for it soon in the projects section of the site.

COCOA 2008 Paper

Just a small update, my first conference paper “Algorithms and Implementation for Interconnection Graph Problem” by Hongbing Fan, Christian Hundt, Yu-Liang Wu and myself, will be presented at COCOA 2008 in St. John’s Newfoundland on Friday, August 22nd at 9:40am by Dr. Fan. I am unable to attend since I am quite busy working on my thesis and other work. You can view the program for the rest of the conference at the COCOA website

Update: Whats Going on These Days

It’s been a busy few weeks, and I haven’t had much time to blog anything lately. I’ve sat in on a few good thesis defenses, quit my old job at the warehouse and got a new job as a web developer for a local college website.

I’ve also received an extension for my wireless simulation project so that has been consuming the majority of my time these days. Assuming all goes well, the project will be done for August 11th, the results will be ready to submit to a conference by September 15th and eventually the paper will result in a Journal publication somewhere down the road.

I’ve made the decision to try the simulation in the ns-3 simulator rather than sticking with ns-2. I’ve found ns-3 more suited to wireless network simulation and it is much easier to understand so hopefully I’ll be able to work my MAC layer implementation into it. More details on the simulation to follow soon.
