+!! OEM Firmware 
+Ok, so Minitar have decided to create a sourceforge project to allow hacking 
+No code up there yet. 
+{http://sourceforge.net/projects/mwgap Sourceforge ) project 
+No firmware on the support page yet. Well, no revision yet so makes sense 
+No source on the support page, It will probably not be there - refer to the sourceforge project. 
+!! Alternate Firmware 
+!! Support Forum

+!! Modifications / Addon's 
+There is a header on the board for adding a serial console. 
+Minitar will be selling a serial adapter ( no details yet ). 
+You can use the same Maxim TTL<->RS232 conversion as was done 
+for the MNWAPB and the WRT54. 
+The header is J1 
+  Vcc (3.3V ) -- 3   2 -- Vss ( ground ) 
+         Rx   -- 4   1 -- Tx 
+Bauderate: 38400 8N1 
+ while booting drops you into the bootloader 
+!! Discussion 
+Ok, now I have one I'm getting hacking on it. My objective is to get OpenWrt running. I'll contribute patches to the sourceforge project. 
+Things to be done: 
+* Apply Lexra compiler patches to buildroot 
+* Add CSYS image packing to buildroot 
+* Add lxloader to buildroot. 
+* Change from using embedded initrd to using jffs2 root filesystem 
+* port RTL radio and ethernet drivers to buildroot 
+* apply patches to hardware bootloader to allow bootwait loading( to flash or RAM )
