I have seen a few links talking about uploading firmware that will essentially overwrite the current linux distro on the router. But, I am wondering, is there a way to access the os on a wireless router without overwriting the firmware? SSH or telnet perhaps? I am not a linux person, however, I'm curious if this is possible. If it is, can anyone recommend some good links?
