26        Verified working with Openwrt on Routerstation Pro.
27        TODO: Complete kernel module list. Kernel has to be compiled with cdc_ether, scsi cdrom
28        If using Openwrt, compile busybox with eject command or dmesg to find out what the device shows up as:
29                opkg update
30                        opkg install sdparm
31                        sdparm --command=eject /dev/sg? 
32                        Then use the above Linux tutorial.

54        Click on Channels sub-tab
55        Add your base station(s) information
56
573. Verify connectivity
58        Note that your settings are stored on the device, so this will only have to be done once for each device.
59
60Data collection & Misc
61        One tab I would like to point out is the CLI (command line interface) that you can run several commands to collect all kinds of information.
62        A list of commands can be viewed with the help command.
