Geeky solution for a simple disaster

Hello My Old friend, We met again…!

Hello My Old friend, We met again…!

I had an accident on Thursday with my skateboard with the result of a crack on one of my ribs and lots of bruises (the ribs hurt like hell though). Also, I had a moving on Saturday to my new place that was almost like I was crunching my ribs slowly. anyhow, finally I’m here and with some reaver and Fern wifi cracker (much better than the old style airodump-ng and all but less general results) I have some internet connections.

While unpacking, I found a Motorola SurfBoard SB5101 being connected to the internet under the bed (weird). It doesn’t have any wireless functionality so I decided to buy a wireless router and I found a used dlink one as cheap as $20 but as I said I wasn’t in a mood to get out and pick it up 🙂

So I decided to bundle up what I have to see what can I do. these are what I have around:

–  Motorola SurfBoard SB5101

– Linksys Network Storage Link for USB 2.0 Disk Drives (NSLU2) – Known as Slug in the geeky world

Alfa AWUS036H 1W 802.11b/g USB Wireless Wifi Network Adapter with Antenna

– 4 GB USB Storage

On my first try I’m going to boot up Debian on the slug and try to use it as a wireless access point with the alfa USB wireless network. I found a great package for this but as always that nothing with my projects is like the normal ones AWUS036H is not on the support list of Linux-Wlan .

Let’s see how this would be done. I’m gonna update my blog as I achieve more on this project or maybe meanwhile my pain goes away and I get up and go buy the wireless router 🙂
