  1. This is pretty cool. I just flashed the dd-wrt firmware to my own la fonera router. Just one question, what is the benefit of doing this besides the geeky bragging rights?

  2. This is impressive. I’ve lad luck in the past with removing ICs like this using a hotplate. I didn’t check to see if the ICs were still good afterwards, though.

    I’ve thought about doing something like this to make higher density RAM SIMMs for laptops (some of which are very hard to get now…) but dismissed it as unlikely to work.

  3. Whats the point of adding more RAM to a La Fonera? I already run DD-WRT v24 on this thing and it still has free RAM left over. Plus, the real performance limitation for these things is the glacially slow flash memory chips. I swear to god they are using tidal forces as the clock for that flash memory.

  4. Thanks for the comments. I run proxy, irssi, screen, and samba so I can use all the ram I can get my hands on. Maybe when the MMC card mod is done, we can boot off of that for quick access =p
