-A custom version of [[http://sourceware.org/redboot|RedBoot]] has been built and can be found here: ''[[http://mysite.verizon.net/jvasco/openwrt/rb-mi424wr-ROM.bin | rb-mi424wr-ROM.bin]]'' . The RedBoot prompt is accessible via telnet 192.168.1.1 9000 on the WAN port. The WAN port is configured to obtain an address via DHCP; if this fails it defaults to 192.168.1.1. RedBoot does initialize the LAN switch so no special action on Linux is required.+A custom version of [[http://sourceware.org/redboot|RedBoot]] has been built and can be found here: ''[[http://risacher.org/rb-mi424wr-ROM.bin | rb-mi424wr-ROM.bin]]'' .

Note that this version of RedBoot has the option of bypassing the boot script if the reset button is pressed during the power-on sequence. This always allows access to RedBoot via telnet on the WAN port. When RedBoot is ready to accept commands, it sets the Internet LED red.
