Next morning..... No wireless, think i have a hardware failure.
Just to clarify - wrt54g method do not "reset" the chip, but causes CRC or invalid nvram content errors in the pmon, causing it to go to recover mode. wl500g on the other hand are always goes to recover mode if it detects that RESTORE button is pressed during the power on.
It does not matter who has produced the FLASH.
Also, Reset PIN will not clear FLASH, but reset the internal CPU. This will not help you.
Yep, that's what I saw reading the Intel flash datasheet. VoidMain is shortenning A19-A18 to produce CRC error.

I think MY wl500g must be different because it doesn't go to recovery mode when I pressed RESTORE button at power on
My WL500G was also inaccessible the wireless in these few days. I didn't know why, just shut it down and turn on again.
But it rarely happened before untile these few days......
This is not the case, i'm having this problem for nearly two weeks now.

After powering down the WL-500g for 10 minutes the wireless works for
a short time, after that no wireless anymore.
I really think there is a bad connection somewhere on the internal wifi card.
Must go back to the shop and claim my warranty
deactivating UPnP does help,no disconnect since yesterday,even with P2P programm and mass connection on wan line
My Asus WL500B is still dead
Can somebody help we...who can help me to restore de NVRAM (HW version 1.0)
try to start from scratch when configuring the router
if you restore backup settings it will restore corrupted stuff too, and this will result everytime in the same failures
no posting in howto!!!
read your Private messages please, I've offered you an option there a while ago
when turning on the router, the wireless LED always doesn't light up.
But the wired connection is ok. When browsing to the router and look at the wireless part in status & log, the channel is 0 and click "refresh" again, the channel becomes 2147439232. Anyone has such experience?
no do a restore of your defaults turn your machine off for 10 minutes and start over

I always make backups with comments if there are problems,

There are also wired problems now. Network shares between 3 XP machines

Internet works always. (wired, no wireless)
XP <--> Win 98 shares works fine.
VNC (remote / client) XP<--> XP / XP <--> Win 98 always works.
XP <--> XP shares never works.
Opening the network workgroup sometimes doesn't work at all, and takes a while to display a metafoor error.
This evening i tried some setting with masterbrowsing auto/off/on, no succes.
I wanted to restore a recent backup on my laptop, i suspect that thing the most but that isn't easy without a network.
Maybe i'll kick this thread to another one, it becomes heavily offtopic
