I have downloaded the firmware development environment from Netgear for building my own firmware for the above device. Before I flash and risk destroying the router I was wondering if it was possible to use an emulator to test the firmware image? Can anyone make and recommendations as I'm a little unsure about how to go about this. I have searched google for MIPS emulators, but not known much about MIPS hardware I am a little unsure. Can anyone give any pointers?
