I have been sitting on this idea for a while about using dd-wrt to host a neighborhood forum,
maybe even for a little file sharting too.
Main thing is I want to know is how feasible it is to do this, how easy.
a very light forum as it wouldn't be connected to the internet either, it would only really exist as a place to converse with neighbors.
figure 100 users max with 2 9dbi antennas on a linux wrt54g.
I know I could solder a cf or sd port to it to host the files for the forum.
or if I got a better model maybe even host it from ram?
I'm thinking anymore than 100 users might be able to fry it.
I figure I could just switch ports in the admin panel so when someone connects to it, it brings up the forum instantly. then I could have the admin panel access behind WPA2 maybe, I'm just not sure how that would work.
any input or know of a way to do this?
