Submission + - OpenWRT $200K cash open source router GUI contest (ubnt.com) 1

RoundSparrow writes: "$160,000 first prize, 4x $10,000 for the runner-up prizes. The rules seem really favorable to the OpenWRT project: all entries are required to have open source license and will be released. Contest already started, but I have seen almost no mention. There is still plenty of time left.

Could be built on top of existing X-WRT or LuCI OpenWRT web interfaces. OpenWRT Kamikaze 8.09 was just released. Now is perfect timing for OpenWRT to get some kick-ass interface and usability ideas. I'm not affiliated with the contest vendor."

  • Other OpenWRT news. The newest Atheros 9xxx radio chips is available in a number of OpenWRT supported routers now. I have been working to help organize new 802.11n support in OpenWRT. I have compiled a list of consumer routers that work with Linux ath9k driver and ar71xx CPU. In order of current recommendation:

    Planex (PCI) MZK-W04NU, 32MB RAM and 8MB flash, USB port, 10/100 Ethernet
    Trendnet TEW-652BRP, 32MB RAM and 4MB flash, 10/100 Ethernet
    Trendnet TEW-632BRP, 32MB RAM and 4MB flash, 10/100 Ethernet

I like work; it fascinates me; I can sit and look at it for hours.
