Changes since 1.9.2.7-8:


Added RTC support for the WL-HDD/WL-700g boards
Fixed a bug causing lockups during reboot
SNMP: uptime values no longer depends on the system time
UPnP: it's now possible to select interface for which interface address reported back to clients (IP Config - Misc), port-forwards are working just like other virtual servers
UPnP: additionally protected by built-in firewall in case when multicast forwards enabled
IPTV: added udpxy (check IP Config - Miscellaneous: IPTV UDP Multicast to HTTP Proxy Port) to enable-disable it
Added Get IP automatically option to the WAN & LAN page
DHCP: added support for some broken DHCP servers (e.g. Golden Telecom)
Manual DNS server entries are no longer added to routing table
Fixed Redirects in the web-iface (it should no longer redirect to internal address);
Enabled Idle Disconnect functionality for PPPoE/PPTP. It's recomended to turn this feature off by typing zero in this field.
L2TP speed increase (up to 2.5 times compared to previous versions) and correct tunnel termination
PPTP sync option is now correctly handled and enabled by default, improved overall stability, cleared up logs;
Updated QuickSetup to recent PPPoE, PPTP and L2TP changes
Added fine grained WPA control on the Wireless page: added separate WPA Enterprise, WPA2 Enterprise, WPA Personal, WPA2 Personal and WPA-Auto-Personal (which is wpa-psk + wpa2-psk for TKIP+AES, wpa-psk for TKIP and wpa2-psk for AES).
Added Regulatory Mode field (802.11d/802.11h/off) to the Wireless - Advanced page. This should fix some problems with Intel WiFi cards (select 802.11d mode).
Virtual Servers has now separate default action in the WAN to LAN firewall.
Added Host Name field to the Manual DHCP MAC list.
Added Comment field to Wireless - Access list.
FTP: switched to vsftpd, reworked web-iface.
Samba: extended web-iface, new share modes - all partitions, manual share list.
Samba: Windows Vista support, W2K3SP1 compatibility
Added utf8 as default encoding of the hard/flash drive (enabled by default).
NFS: fixed some /etc/exports problems

Other changes:

Kernel modules are now stored in single directory
Added ftdi_sio usb to serial converter module
Some other modules are now available as separate download (modules-1.9.2.7-9.tgz), includes HID, input, Bluetooth. Unpack them to /opt
Added modprobe, which is looking for /opt/lib/modules/... by default.
USB updates
VLAN support fixes, updated robocfg
dropbear 0.50 (credits to lly), enabled inetd support
busybox_httpd fixes: new cgi environment vars (HTTP_HOST, CGI_*)
Changed a way how automount works: everything is mounted to /tmp/mnt now, while /tmp/harddisk is just a symbolic link to first partition
Samba/FTP/NFS relative paths are against /tmp/harddisk
Added /usr/local/sbin/pre-mount to be called before automount (suitable to manual mounts, disk checks, etc).
Added Enable USB Storage selection to the System Setup - Services page to enable usb storage modules to load automatically
Added filesystem type autodetection to automount portition

I have PPPoE problem in this release.

After upgrade from CR8 to CR9 everything worked fine, until next restart.

After restart PPPoE stoped working. I seems pppd don't even try to authorize with only this lines in log:


Jan 1 01:00:10 pppd[92]: Plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded.
Jan 1 01:00:10 pppd[92]: RP-PPPoE plugin version 3.3 compiled against pppd 2.4.2

Jan 1 01:00:10 pppd[93]: remote IP address 10.112.112.112



Get IP address automaticaly was not enabled by default, so I enabled it, reboot with no success.

Next I tried factory reset - PPPoE does not work after performing quick setup or manual config.

Went back to CR8. Here is pppd syslog with correct PPPoE initialization (from CR8)

Another issue: ftp server freezes after login (success is logged in syslog) on sending directory listing.

Contact me if you need more logs or information.

Anyway thanks for great work on this custom firmware Oleg!

Thanks for help, after setting "Idle Disconnect" PPPoE works fine. May be u could make this default :)

Anyway what about the FTP issue? accounts with "Read/Write" access to ftp_pub work OK, but for accounts with "Private" access does not work - connection "freezes" after sending password. Both ftp_pub and ftp_pvt exist and have same access control.

system log:


Mar 16 19:46:07 vsftpd[163]: CONNECT: Client "192.168.1.116"
Mar 16 19:46:07 vsftpd[162]: [guest] OK LOGIN: Client "192.168.1.116"
Mar 16 19:46:12 vsftpd[166]: CONNECT: Client "192.168.1.116"
Mar 16 19:46:12 vsftpd[165]: [taro] OK LOGIN: Client "192.168.1.116"


ftp client:


ftp> o my.router
Systém je připojen k my.router.

Uživatel (my.router:(none)): guest

after typing password, there's no response (even if log says login is successful)

Just FYI (asap I'll have some time I'll upgrade again and paste the errors from system log for you Oleg)

Upgraded from 1.9.2.7-7g to CR9. I've saved my old settings and FlashFS. After flashing CR9 I had to reboot WL500g manually (pwr off/pwr on). Power led was off, AIR+WAN+LAN leds showed activity before. After reboot I found some kernel errors in console - saying something about memory allocation with some memory/register dump. I tried reloading settings+flashfs from backup. I had to reboot manually again (pwr off/pwr on). Result was that OpenVPN was not working. So I reverted back to 1.9.2.7-7g, again reloaded settings+FlashFS from backup and everything works like a charm again.

I've succesfully updated from cr8 to cr9, now my scanner refuses to work. If I downgrade to cr8 again scanner works like a charm.

I've updated the sane backends to the newest version, then it says following:

Anyone an idea why sane don't work with cr9?

Seems it is related to scanner.o. It does load, but sane-find-scanner does not find any scanner. IN cr8 it works flawlessly...

I see that the separate download modules include scsi_mod, sd_mod and usb-storage.

It may be a silly question, but, I presume the modules are also still part of the main firmware, since without them how can one mount a drive to opt? Is this a bit of unnecessary duplication or am I missing the point?

There are was huge number of kernel updated, so most likely scanner.o should be recompiled with current kernel.

Oleg
20-03-2008, 12:17
Here is a part of log what I get after upgrade to CR9

Why do you activate swap twice?

Why do you load scsi stuff manually? This is no longer needed (check release notes). If you want to do this on your own - disable usb storage in the web iface.

You've to fix this first, before blaming if something does not work.

BTW, I've OpenVPN running on my router and "it works like a charm".

Oleg
20-03-2008, 12:22
Thanks for help, after setting "Idle Disconnect" PPPoE works fine. May be u could make this default :)

It should be 0 by default, but looks like you've not resetted your router to default or used old config, right?



Anyway what about the FTP issue? accounts with "Read/Write" access to ftp_pub work OK, but for accounts with "Private" access does not work - connection "freezes" after sending password. Both ftp_pub and ftp_pvt exist and have same access control.

Private directories should be created manually (just like home directories in real unixes). So you've to create ftp_pvt/taro first.

Oleg thanks for kicking my ass "the right way". I've never said, that your firmware sucks or something similar against it. All I need was some advice and you gave it to me - so thanks, now everything works as expected ;)

Maybe I should ask directly ;)

Hmmz, just read yr posting about it being available already in the modules gz. I'll give it a go tonight, am using the connection at the moment to work, so once I am done I will give it a go.

Hi,

I discovered following minor bugs with my WL-HDD and FW release 1.9.2.7-9. Sorry that I post to the wrong sub-forum, but I'm pretty sure, there is no way to get an answer in the WL-HDD sub-forum...

1. The RTC works with 1.9.2.7-9 on WL-HDD well, but I didn't found a way to eliminate following error message from the system log:

Mar 21 13:59:12 kernel: ***RTC BATTERY FAILURE***the battery is definitely OK and not faulty, 3,2 V measured

2. The behaviour of the reset button has changed. I wanted to shut down my WL-HDD, but I couldn't. After pressing the reset button down and waiting a couple of seconds, till the power LED is off and releasing the button WL-HDD didn't go in OFF state - it made a restart!

P.S./EDIT: On my other device WL-500gP the behaviour of the reset button is different, but either not like described in the 1.9.2.7-6 (last change of the reset behaviour) release note

Restore to defaults/shutdown are now called using RESTORE/RESET button as follows:
first 3 seconds - power LED on: release button to do nothing
next 5 seconds - power LED off: release button to "shutdown"
next 5 seconds - power LED blinking: release button to reset to defaults
start over the power LED starts to blink immediately (approx. 1 sec) after pressing the reset button down. Of course I didn't want to set my device to default, so I waited several seconds till the power LED stopped blinking. There was no way to shut down the device with the reset button.

P.P.S./EDIT2: ok, I must be blind, have not seen "Disabled "power off" for all units except WL-HDD" statement in the 1.9.2.7-7g release note. So please forget the WL-500gP issue, but WL-HDD does definitely restart instead of shut down.


That's just my feedback to the new FW release.

Regards

Robert

Well, this is just what RTC chip reports.



2. The behaviour of the reset button has changed. I wanted to shut down my WL-HDD, but I couldn't. After pressing the reset button down and waiting a couple of seconds, till the power LED is off and releasing the button WL-HDD didn't go in OFF state - it made a restart!

This is strange. Just checked with WL-700g: it halts using same code. Unfortunately I've no idea how to debug this. :( Nothing is changed in this path... Perhaps something is crashing during halt, causing a reboot... Someone should recompile my firmware and play with shutdown stuff. Personally I do not have wl-hdd, so I could not play with it.

Actually I could prepare some test versions, but I need "interactive answers". If someone is ready to do the testing today - let me know.

BTW, this is the last firmware which supports WL-HDD. In newer sources broadcom removed support for BCM4702 CPU.

21-03-2008, 17:15

replaced scanner.o with the one from modules, works like a charm again. Thanks Oleg for the update of the firmware.

21-03-2008, 17:42
So, WL-HDD owners.

I've built 11 test versions: http://oleg.wl500g.info/wlhdd/

Test one by one: flash, issue halt command and check if it really halts your unit or reboots. At first try 9.1.1 and 9.1.12. If both reboots, let me know and don't flash other firmwares...

Find out which versions work and which does not and let me know your findings.

akbor
21-03-2008, 18:42
Hello Oleg,

thank you for fast reaction and for support! I'm ready to test the FW files and to give you answers due to power down issue.

I tested the first two firmwares 9.1.1 and 9.1.2 (I think 9.1.12 was a typo?)

9.1.1 doesn't reboot but it doesn't go in power down either. After holding the reset button down for a couple of seconds the power LED goes off, but the WLAN LED stays on and WL-HDD stays in this state (power LED = off, WLAN LED = on) and doesn't do anything else. I've tested it twice.

9.1.2 has the same behaviour. Also tested twice.

Should I go on with 9.1.3 - 9.1.11?

Regards

Robert

Oleg
21-03-2008, 18:57
Yes, try all firmwares.

Oleg
21-03-2008, 19:01
Actually device halts, but does not turn some of the features off.

We've to figure out which one is causing reboot.

Yes, I think, I've got it! 1.9.10 makes reboot. Which feature could make problems in this version?

Oleg

Bringing WiFi interface down.

Try new image 9.1.12.

akbor
21-03-2008, 20:08
on the way

akbor
21-03-2008, 20:14
yes, 9.1.12 makes shut down, all LEDs are off!

Oleg
21-03-2008, 20:15
ok, wait for yet another (final attempt). :)

Oleg
21-03-2008, 20:21
well, let's leave 9.1.12 solution for now.

In the mean time I would release 1.9.2.7-9a with this fix, plus some minor fixes. This would be the last firmware with WL-HDD support.

akbor
21-03-2008, 20:45
Would you mind, if I'll post this information in the German part of the forum? Maybe somebody else has noticed some other bugs. If 1.9.2.7-9a will be defenitely the last version supporting WL-HDD it makes absolutely sense - you could improve the last version. What do you think?

since I am running with cr9 I get disconnected from the internet again. I use automatic ip config, so if I go to the webpages and do a disconnect and then a reconnect every thing goes again.

In the previous firmwares in the logfiles I did see dhcp renewals, I have not seen this in the cr9 release. So I am thinking I do not get a dhcp renewall. Anyone else with auto ip config running with cr9 that sees similar behavior?

When I do a manual release I see the following in the syslog:


Mar 22 09:34:27 udhcpc[100]: Unicasting a release of MY.IP.ADDRESS to 84.245.2.1
Mar 22 09:34:27 udhcpc[100]: Entering released state
Mar 22 09:34:31 udhcpc[100]: Performing a DHCP renew
Mar 22 09:34:31 udhcpc[100]: Lease of MY.IP.ADDRESS obtained, lease time 14400

So this makes me think there's nothing wrong with the firewall settings, else a manual renew would fail too.

Oleg
22-03-2008, 12:59
This firmware was tested by number of guys here in Russia before it was released. 99% are using dhcp in different flavors and has not reported any problems... So, I beleive this is not a firmware problem.

You could try flashing old firmware and compare the output: it's the same.

wiz
22-03-2008, 13:29
I have no doubts it has been tested Oleg, I just don't see any renewall statements in my syslog anymore after the update.

I will put cr8 back to see if that helps.

wiz
22-03-2008, 16:48
I've put cr8 back and left the asus for a while.


Mar 22 15:32:12 udhcpc[105]: Lease of MY.IP.ADDRESS obtained, lease time 14400


Asus was booted around 13:30, so this is roughly half way through the lease time it renewed the ip address. Seems it works correctly with cr8. I'll stick to that release for now.

Oleg
22-03-2008, 16:51
Well, give me complete cr9 log then.

I have a USB harddrive formated in NTFS filesystem. the CR9's kernel couldnn't support to read/write it. the CR8 can.

Oleg

NTFS never was writable. As for CR9 - it still works fine:

The NTFS problem solve after I type `mount` in console, it is strange. I reboot after upgrade to CR9 but the NTFS partition isn't work, I reboot after solve the NTFS problem by issue 'mount' command, but NTFS partition still work....

Any way, thanks Oleg for your great firmware and quickly response:p

wiz

Well, give me complete cr9 log then.

Nah, if it is just my setup then leave it, I can live with cr8, that does the job too.

Thanks anyway Oleg.

Well, I just want to be sure, that it works in the same way as CR8... There are was some changes in the dhcp code, but they should not change anything in respect to renewals...

wiz
23-03-2008, 17:11
I'll see if I get away with testing with cr9 again (my wife and kids were already complaining :D)

I keep getting wifi-disconnects, it works for a while and then it disconnects. I can reconnect, but only for a short period of time before it disconnects.

I have tried setting regulatory mode to d/h and off but nothing helps.

Nothing special is displayed in syslog either, only dhcp requests when reconnecting to router.

I have these problems in cr8 and cr9. I'm connecting with a netgear wg511t pc card.

Does any body have any idea of how to solve this problem? Right not I'm forced to use older firmware.

Oleg

Use newer drivers and if you've Windows XP, try installing this update: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/893357

akbor
23-03-2008, 19:57
BTW KB893357 is obsolete and was replaced by KB917021 (currently in the version 3)

I've put cr9 back in, and changed only one thing. I did have a private range ip address set on the wan interface for connection with the modem (used to work flawlessly with cr8), I have removed that one now. Although there's no logging in the syslog about renewalls I still am online past the 4 hour mark now. So renewals take place, but do not get logged anymore I guess.

I think this could be the problem. Being the fact I hardly use the modem configuration website I have left it like this for now.

Hmmz, spoke too soon, just got disconnected. Unfortunately nothing is in the log that's out of the ordinary. I'll go back to cr8 now, can I mail the logging to you Oleg?

cheers,

Wiz

Wifi still not working correctly. Will try 10 (no hope of it working any better), and then reverting back to 7g;

hi Oleg.

I'm running with this Firmware, but cannot seem to cahnge the config of the inbuild VSFTPD!

I've tried changing the config in /etc/vsftpd.conf

After that made:
flashfs save/commit/enable.

But when I reboot, it returns to the "previous" default config

Why?

Am I changing the wrong conf-file? or is there anything else, that ĺrevents me from changing the config??

Hi everybody,

is there any plan to come up with a 1.9.2.7-9a in the near future or at all? Or will 1.9.2.7-9.1.12 be definitively the last one?
If so, is there any changelog available? So far WLHDD-1.9.2.7-9 works fine for me (except the shutdown that I can live with), but if there are other bugfixes, I might do the upgrade.

If this was the last version, a really big thank you to Oleg for doing this, too bad that WL-HDDs are nowadays hard to get, your firmware has made this little piece of hardware one of the most useful ones I'm using!

CU!

F.

hello,

i didn't find any information on the question if vlan tagging for VDSL is available on the current FW or any older releases.

the "problem" is, im using VDSL and the DD-WRT provides an option "activate DTAG VDSL tagging" in order to be able to use the vdsl.

does the oleg FW also can do that?

I upgraded my 500g from cr7g to cr9 and experienced the same WiFi disconnecting issue. It worked several hours but suddenly started to disconnect, power cycle helped sometimes. Stopped working for example while streaming data from USB camera connected to the router, tested 3 times. It doesn't seem to be related to certain WiFi client (Win XP), iPhone couldn't connect either. Finally I reverted to cr7g.

By the way, I couldn't find the regulatory mode setting.

Does anyone have a clue why it's disconnecting me from WAN while downloading? I tested it on two different computers over wired and wireless connection. The same behaviour... Nothing is in syslog, any other way to find out the reason?
