Project fosters free, open, secure, public hotspots

The Electronic Freedom Foundation (EFF) has released an experimental hacker alpha version of a proposed new open source wireless router stack that supports secure, shareable WiFi networks. The Open Wireless Router, which is supported by the existing Open Wireless Movement community, will initially use an OpenWRT Linux derivative called CeroWRT running on a Netgear WNDR3800 (N600 Premium Edition) router. The widespread use of OpenWRT in the router world should make the implementation easily portable to most consumer routers.
