If your router will be offline while you're configuring it (e.g. if the computer you're configuring from is not co-located with your source of internet) download the associated [[http://downloads.openwrt.org/attitude_adjustment/12.09/brcm47xx/generic/packages/kmod-b43_3.3.8%2b2012-09-07-3_brcm47xx.ipk|kmod-b43]] and [[http://downloads.openwrt.org/attitude_adjustment/12.09/brcm47xx/generic/packages/kmod-cfg80211_3.3.8%2b2012-09-07-3_brcm47xx.ipk|kmod-cfg80211]] packages for offline installation. Flash the image using OpenWrt's web interface, [[toh/asus/wl500gd#oem.installation.using.the.tftp.method|tftp]], or the Asus firmware update utility. If the router is connected to the internet, install the two mentioned packages through the router's web interface (System -> Software); otherwise manually install packages by sending them to the router's "/tmp" folder using scp then ssh over and install them using "opkg install file.ipk". Once the packages are shown as installed under the web interface (System -> Software), reboot the router, and enable wireless networking via the web interface (Network -> Wifi).
