WRT54G (L) in Wikipedia

"The WRT54G is famous for being the first consumer-level network device that had its firmware source code released to satisfy the obligations of the GNU GPL. This allows programming enthusiasts to modify the firmware to change or add functionality to the device. Several development projects have been started to provide the public with enhanced firmware for the WRT54G. See Third party firmware projects."

at Wireless Nomad, we use WRT54GL:

"New model line, released after the version 5 WRT54G, which returns to a Linux-based internal OS as opposed to the v5's VxWorks firmware. NOT SpeedBooster enabled in stock state. Essentially the same as the WRT54G version 4.0, but with a new model number."

If you have anything to add, zip over to Wikipedia and do your bit.
