I think getting ecos to run on this box may not be the main work, once it runs it should probably also provide the routing functionality. AFAIK the wrt54ag features the Atheros AR5002A 802.11 chipset, not sure about the wrt54g. For this chipset there are drivers in FreeBSD, which could maybe be ported to eCos (...quite a few WLAN requests in the last weeks). You might find some people willing to help you if you search the list archive.

Bye
Alex
