SNIPPET: OpenWRT on Netgear WGT346U Dumbass Help - Setting up after "generic failsafe firstboot" or from a fresh installation 
This entry contains what I did to get my OpenWRT configured after performing a firstboot command on the Netgear WGT346U. Issuing the firstboot command resets the device back to the "stock" settings.

You might also like this entry if you are setting up OpenWRT from a fresh install.

This guide covers:
- Setting up initial network for internet access from router
- Checking opkg.conf has the correct repository source
- Updating opkg
- Installing nano editor
- Installing USB support
- Configuring automount of partitions and swap on USB device
- Installing wifi drivers
- Initial wifi config
- Configuring router as a wireless routed client to an existing wireless network with bridged ethernet LAN
- Configuring firewall after setting up as a bridged client

It assumes:
- You have just installed or 'firstboot'ed OpenWRT on the router
- The router is connected to an existing network by ethernet cable
- Said existing network has internet access and allows the router access to the internet
- You know how to use vi text editor to edit a file See this page specifically the "Editing Files in vi - The Bare Basics" section

HOWTO: Toshiba L650 Tear Down Guide 
Well my wife finally dropped the laptop (we all know it's inevitable) and of course that is not covered under warranty (sucked in Good Guys I _didn't_ pay for the extended warranty!! HAR HAR) so now we have 1 broken LCD. My Mrs., being green, called the Good Guys same day it happened and so now there's no way to get it fixed under warranty. The screen is clearly smashed and has been dropped anyhows so I doubt it would've ever got done under warranty.

So now the internet masses can benefit from our misfortunes! Here you will find a guide on how to (almost completely) tear down a Toshiba Satellite L650! I looked for an LCD removal guide before doing it myself and there is one dodgy guide that doesn't seem to have photos of my exact model so I tore mine apart and cameraed it along the way.

This guide should cover removing the following parts:
CDROM
Touchpad/Top Front Bezel
Keyboard
Screen (the whole screen as a unit)
Screen Front Bezel
LCD panel

Removing the HDD and mainboard are even simpler than the LCD but I have not provided steps for those here as I had no need to do it. (Sorry)

NOTE: This page has large images (about 20Mb worth) so don't view it if you're on a slow connection! Sorry the images are big but I made them big so people can see what to do. Also, I am lazy and didn't downsize or compress them properly. That happens when you get stuff on the internet for free.

As usual: no responsibility. Read More...
