I got telnet working by inserting creating /etc/inetd.conf, added oss and mpg123, added cheatcode for text only, and added network.gz to tce dir. (This gives you all the stuff you may need for wireless) I couldn't get TL-WN422G to work, so used Belkin rt73 instead. Modified /opt/bootlocal.sh to include
