    55Due to the lightness of the Wifidog client it is often installed inside the linksys WRT54G. This is why it has it's own FAQ.

     7= The easy way = 
     8You are not comfortable with linux and don't know how to do all this compiling stuff. 
     9 
     10You can use an OpenWRT and !WiFiDog compiled by someone else.  They MUST be compiled for your specific version of OpenWRT. 
     11 
     12!IleSansFil makes it's own pair of OpenWRT images and !WiFiDog .ipk compiled files available to the public: 
     13 * You can download a pre-compiled OpenWRT firmware image [http://downloads.openwrt.org/whiterussian/rc6/bin/ here] 
     14 * And you can download a compatible !WiFiDog .ipk file [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=102646&package_id=110081 here] 
     15 
     16Note that the packages on sourceforge are the only one we will support.  If you use package distributed by another organisation, you will have to asssk them for support. 
     17 
     18Look in the [http://www.openwrt.org/ OpenWRT] site for instructions on how to re-flash your router with the firmware image (skip any download/building instructions). 
     19 
     20Then follow the above installation instructions for installing the !WiFiDog .ipk file into the OpenWRT-flashed router. 
     21 
     22Please note that the above saves you from the knowledge and time needed to compile and produced these binary files.  It is however no magical cure for linux illiteracy.  You need to be proficient enough in a unix environment to be able to telnet/ssh into the router and perform the outlined installation and configuration tasks.  If you do not feel comfortable doing this we advise you consult with someone who is proficient in linux and networking.

     24= The long way (Note:  The following need a good update, it has changed somewhat in more recent versions of openwrt benoitg 2006-01-18) = 
    725== Q: What do I need ? == 
    826  A: You will need to have basic/full proficiency in a Linux environment 
     
    106124  1. Or ask them for a copy of their OpenWRT buildroot so you may compile !WiFiDog against it 
    107125 
    108 == I am not comfortable with linux and don't know how to do all this compiling stuff.  Is there an easier way for me to get the !WiFiDog client running on a Linksys WRT54G ? == 
    109126 
    110 You can use an OpenWRT and !WiFiDog compiled by someone else.  They must be compiled by the same person against the same OpenWRT buildroot.
