    Disassembling router firmware is a very interesting concept as it involves opening up and understanding something thought of as a black box - the home router. Some time ago I heard the home router firmware is in many cases actually a downsized but otherwise fully functional Linux system which can be reversed, explored, and sometimes even modified.
