I think you are confusing ZeroShell with projects like DD-WRT and OpenWRT.

You can look at those, but I don’t think they’ll support your router. Not a lot of D-Link routers work with replacement firmware.

However, you can build your own wireless router with ZeroShell.

You could look at a product like IBT’s FWA7304* appliance with a wifi card installed in it and run ZeroShell on that.

Otherwise, you’ll need a compatible consumer router that works with a replacement firmware like DD-WRT, OpenWRT, Tomato, etc. See the compatibility lists on their websites. The Linksys WRT54G series are the primary models for these projects.

Good luck!

*Not an ad, I just happen to have purchased one after looking for compatible HW myself.
