I already flash it. So far so good... Port forward works better and also upnp. No probs with my pppoe connection. I noticed that there is no option to open telnet to wl500w. Also, the wifi channel selection works properly now. I can not say with confidence that there are changes with previous default firmware because I always use olegs.

After a day of testing, the wifi seems to work stable with this firmware at least the 802.11g with wpa/wpa2 aes.

G always works good for me, but N is a bit weird with the speeds I get, the coverage is very good tho.
I wonder if they can stop that software interrupt based processes now while tranfserring lots of data with wireless, since that is done over the CPU instead of the wired chips, that do it independently from the cpu.
I think, if the linux kernel manages to get the intel cards working on draft N, I will compile myself a new firmware, and put an intel card in there
there are actually drivers out: http://www.intellinuxwireless.org/
still browsing it

I tried v188.8.131.52 firmware as well. It seems fine except Download Master not working even though I have installed latest Asus Utility v184.108.40.206. When I try to connect with Download Master, it keeps saying Network Error.... Fat32 only 4G...better to use EXT2/3... But I have already formated my harddisk in EXT2 format. I think it still have bugs...
maybe they are also releasing a new download master soon...
or perhaps the old download master is still installed on the hdd
since I was trying to compile the whole thing for myself, and downloaded the toolchain, I found out the toolchain archive was corrupted, it should be replaced in 2 weeks according to the support employee I spoke to.
Finally I could use the download master! The last firmware version+ Asus utility is working properly for nearly two weeks.
I was able to download more than 30 G of usefull stuff since then.
The only remark I have is that the external drive (a Kingston 32 G G2 flash drive) has to be formatted in EXT2 (Ext3 would not work).
The PC interface is still buggy and sometimes I have to load the information several times untill I get a message "file already exists" just to make sure that the info has actually been transferred to the router.
Also, it REALLY takes time to transfer files to the external drive to the PC.
typically a 700 Mb .avi file would take about 5 minutes to be copied to the PC HD.
However, I am not sure if this low transfer velocity is caused by the firewall/anti virus installed in the PC.
