Occasional Visitor
I recently bought a Netgear WAC124 to use as a Wireless Access Point to replace an aging Netgear WNDR3700. The WNDR3700 has been running DD-WRT firmware for a number of years without any issues.
I wrote a C# program which periodically queries the WNDR3700 via a Telnet connection to get a list of attached devices.
Unfortunately I have been unable to find a way of enabling Telnet on the WAC124. None of the usual mechanisms work. So my program no longer serves its purpose
So my question is - does anyone know if the WAC124 supports telnet and if so how to enable it and/or does anyone know if there is alternative firmware available that does support either telnet or ssh?

Thanks in advance
