Due to the underwhelming enhancements to the latest firmware by Asus, I'm considering adding some more "out of the box", web gui enabled, features to future custom 1.0.7.8 firmware images.

Please post your wish-list items. Be as specific as possible with what you'd like to see. The more information I have, the more likely it will be to be included. Relevant links to forum threads, web sites, examples, how-to's, etc. will be appreciated.

I have two items already.

1) Better BT support. I like this approach:

http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=10041

2) Configurable HDD spin down

I'm sure there'll be much, much more.

First off, i would like to say that this is a great initiative! And thanks for all the work that you have already done
with Asus bug filled software!

Now i don't know if this is possible, but i guess it doesn't hurt to ask. I was really hoping that Asus
would have updated samba to a newer version, that supports Windows Vista. I have tried many of the "hacks"
that should make it possible for Vista to commmunicate with the old samba version, with user based auth.
My fix for now is to just use share based auth.

Is it in any way possible to replace the samba version in the firmware with a newer one, without screwing the
webGUI up?

I guess you already though of these, since its already in your tutorial on how to install your custom
firmware and "make a better system" :-). I know that these things don't have anything to do with the webGUI
but i think it would be nice to have enabled and configured "out-of-the-box".

* Bash shell
* Dropbear SSH (As described in your tutorial on installing your custom firmware)
* Apply your CPU "eating" patch :-)

It should be said that i have no experience with anything like this, so i have no idea if my suggestions are completely out of proportions :-)

Lighttpd php & Mysql would also be nice to have :)

maybe it can be made somehow so users can turn it on or off in the web-if,
like in the custom oleg firmware on the wl500-series

(I'm also trying to create a custom firmware based on you're instructions, somehow I get a buch of errors compiling it so I got a lot to learn I gues)

I agree with the urgent need for the new SAMBA version. More and more users of the WL700G will be confronted with Windows Vista on new computers. It's a shame this product is not yet updated by ASUS. The WL700G is still being marketed and sold as a state of the art product. In that case you simply have to be Vista compliant !

Next to this it would be very nice to have the possibility of spinning down the HDD.

It would be nice to have a executable that does the job (upgrading firmware and install stuff). So there wont be long discussions on "how to" from linux-unexperienced users like me. I will suggest we do a donation to kfurge when all of our wl's are running like crazy.

For a long while I used your custom firmware, but I kept having trouble configuring it the way I wanted. The Asus component kept wanting to try to take over, and it wouldn't allow some functions to be configured how one would like.

So here is a wishlist:

1. User-configurable dnsmasq for both dns function and for dhcp server. IP of local machines configurable given their mac address.
2. HDD spindown.
3. Better "Download Master" ... the mldonkey approach looks very good.
4. User-editable firewall rules.
5. Up-to-date samba
6. mail server - xmail or some combination of sendmail/fetchmail/postfix
7. webmin interface bound to local lan would be very nice
8. Installable optware ipkg support built in
9. CUPS print server
10. Full openssh server (otherwise dropbear would do)
11. termcap with console utilities: screen mc nano etc would be good
12. wpa security option for wireless as well as wep
13. A light web server. Lighttpd or php-thttpd, or perhaps appweb or cherokee.

If required, then support for a swapfile would be good.

I don't want much, hey!

You can use the Firmware restoration tool if you don't want (or can't) to use the webinterface for reflashing the firmware :-)

K.C -->
I got a servage account which i just use to host some small sites i have made for some people, and my own projects. So there is alot of free space, and lots of "unused" trafic :-). So if you are interrested i can hook you up with FTP access, so you can host firmware files etc., and i could also set up a wiki :-)

Hi kfurge and thanks for doing this!

I have a few suggestions and I like to have:
- knockd to secure external access (remove all bruteforce attacks)
- dropbear
- HDD Spindown
- possibility to mount iso-files easy for streaming purposes
- ipkg
- possibility to choose and/or create/rename places for files not only /shares/MYVOLUME1/MYSHARE1
- possibility to set internal system time to local time
- a better (working) bittorrent client and downloader
- cron
- syslog-ng

Well, I know its hard to please all, but I'm looking forward to see what will be implemented in next version.

My Favorites are:

- newer mt-daapd with a writable configfile and playlistfile
- cups
- perhaps appletalk support in networking (and netatalk, but that could be installed by ipkg)


out of this world would by python and support for hellanzb, but these are also installable by ipkg

My mt-daapd now struggles with directories and filenames with extended characters. They are converted to some sort of ascii. So, if you have: Schönberg, Verklärte Nacht, it is sent from mt-daapd as Schotegberg, Verklwert Nacht (or so). Result: no sound. So I guess it would be nice if the Asus could work internally with UTF-8 or ISO-8859-1

I'll probably be some number of months. My outdoor lifestyle doesn't leave much spare time during the summer and fall. However, the snow flies early where I live, so I'll be able to put much more effort into the project once winter sets in.

Upgrading the existing components should be relatively straightforward so that's where I'll concentrate first. After that, I'll probably work on making a better default command-line experience. Finally I'll work on adding more applications and features once an infrastructure is put in place.

If all goes well, I expect to be half done before the end of '07. Mostly complete before spring '08.

This won't be possible. Linux is still Linux. If you need something not already in the firmware, you'll have to get your hands dirty. I don't think it's too much of a stretch to learn how to use ipkg.

Here's a list of 'wants.' Granted I've got most of these already running on 1.0.4.6 but having them from the get-go in 1.0.7.8 would be nice.

Fail2ban for disabling bruteforce attacks
Wondershaper or equivalent QoS shaper (a functional GUI would be nice too)
Better 'functional' media server like ushare (or mediatomb)
built-in configs for multihoming dydns and web sites
Better mt-daapd
Python, Perl, PHP and MYSQL preinstalled and ready to run if activated.

I've been following this forum for some time now. Your requests have been echoed before, over and over. Everything proposed in this thread would be out-of-the-box software. All you'll have to do is flash it.

Now that some good solutions have surfaced over the last year, we, as a wl700g community, are in a better position to make some things more accessible and "standard" with a SW upgrade only.

- K.C.

kfurge
17-08-2007, 01:55
Ok, I've been taking notes and here's what I have so far (in my order of priority):

Top priority:
All of my patches applied (cpu load, entropy, etc.)
HDD spin down (fixed first, then configurable)
Workable command line environment (bash, ipkg, termcap, tz, busybox, default profiles, etc.)
Dropbear
CUPS to replace printd
Updated mt-daapd
Latest Samba
Web server (lighttpd)
Separate web interface for enhancements
Replacement BT client (MLDonkey)
Cron

Good idea:
User editable FW rules
Editable configuration of dnsmasq
knockd
ISO mounting
fail2ban
wondershaper

Not general enough (must add via ipkg):
Mail server
Syslog-ng
python, perl, php, mysql
hellanzb/nget

Don't know how to do / can't test:
WPA security
appletalk/netatalk

Very difficult:
Changing default from /shares/MYVOLUME1/MSHARE1

Already there:
Swapfile (512Meg)
Fixed IP for a given MAC

If you don't like how I've classified a request and would like it to be reconsidered, please post a compelling argument. Maybe others will chime in and support you.

Mr Furge, looking at your long list...
- updated mt-daapd

Even the current version (1634) does not solve the problem with accented characters. So I wonder which updated version you will pick. But it is still a long time till next spring, so I hope that mt-daapd will have some sort of final new release in the process.

- WPA security
Did I miss something? What is wrong or lacking in the current Wifi security? I have enabled WPA-PSK for all my clients.

It'll be whatever's most recent, unless you have a better suggestion or replacement application. For whatever reason, Asus does not build mt-daapd from source. Instead, it's distributed in binary form. Getting it building into the project will be a little tricky, but should not be too bad.

No. It was just on someone's list. It should have been classified as "Already there".

KFurge:

Would it perhaps be a viable option to put your work-in-progress up on some svn server (or cvs or whatever) so that others can have a look and perhaps pitch in? It does seem like a pretty big project you're taking on all by yourself.

I am a computer science graduate but don't have much specific experience doing integrating/patching work in the linux environment. Still, I'm a quick study and I consider this area a big hole in my resume, so I might be able to contribute within the time frame you sketched out above.

Ok. I'm willing to help if I can. It will mean to compile mt-daapd with all options or best choices. I have seen that somewhere.
But I like to wait for the next version. It is rather odd that after the official release of 2.4, there was no newer one for more than a year. :(

I'd actually like to do this. I currently have 1.0.4.6 completely checked into a Perforce depot. Personally, I get very uncomfortable making significant modifications to any project without some sort of version control.

However, wrangling the Asus distribution into a form workable for checking into version control (i.e. read-only when not open for edit) turned out to be a very large task. I probably won't do that again. It's not worth the trouble. An easier route may be to "overlay" version controlled copies of any modified files over the top of an official Asus distribution.

Currently, I'm still playing around with different approaches to the problem. Like my previous work, I still don't want to deviate too much from Asus's releases. The further I deviate, the harder it is to incorporate those changes into future Asus releases. My preferred path is to add a substantial collection of optware packages to the standard build flashable image. A bolt-on web based user interface will also be enabled by default. Doing this should significantly increase the usability of the box without too many modifications to the Asus distribution.

Keep tuned to the forum. I don't want to do this alone.

Hi K.C.

Is your custom firmware available yet? Just installed ASUS 1.0.7.8 firmware and although working ok still some few issues. I wanted to load your custom FW.

As a side note you and medsource have been great in helping guy specially newbies like me to get my router loaded, greatly appreciated.

Hope your FW has most of the options thought GUI as I have very little to no experince of Linux.

Great work thanks.

I tested it on a linux root server. It was very stable and easy to use/configure via webinterface.

Hi K.C,

Just a word of thanks on your efforts for the community ;)

The Wl-700 has a copy function on front panel, where you can load data from USB key.
1. Is this functionality open to allow modification? do you know.
2. If so would you think it's technically possible to integrate a USB DVD player to back up DVD's onto the HDD.

I am willing to roll up the sleeves and start programming, willing to learn to help the community. May be it could be done with Ipk? what do you think?

If possible this would be on the wish list along with better support for Ushare and Bit torrent.

Both items should be possible. Button presses can be trapped. In fact, I rerouted the power on-off button on my router to my own custom script to do a couple of things before calling the Asus routines.

Is it possible to get some error handling in rc.local or devide into more scripts?
I have experienced a couple crashes due to error in rc.local when I add a new line to startup a feature.

Is it possible to startup the core and then additional features after?

It should be possible to do via rc.local then additional with a cronjob that starts once at reboot. But it would be better to have all in one place and error handled in some way... like "on error resume next" handling.

Not so good:


Top priority:
Updated mt-daapd - too heavy, the better choise is uShare
Web server (lighttpd) - why for? not wanted for most users (use ipkg install for profs.)
Dropbear - the same. not for the most users.


My suggsestion:
1. Two interfaces for WAN (PPPoE/ppptp + LAN) - there are problem in this topic. if you try to create two WAN interfaces like this:

ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.xxx netmask 255.255.255.0 up, after PPPoE get reconnect, all settings for eth0 will be lost and you get only ppp0 interface still workable. This is great problem for users having LAN with PPPoE internet access: just only internet via PPPoE or just only LAN.
2. the MTU problem for white box. If you set MTU value via web interface, it's work only for your home network but not for whitebox, so to use white box as server you should set
ifconfig ppp0 mtu xxxx to make you box work properly.

P.S. kfurge, please contact me via PM, i just want to ask you some advise about LAN+PPPoE problems to make right way to solve this problem and i'm ready to share my lifelength for 1.0.7.8 firmware image

I dusted off my 1.0.7.8 project and have a set of diffs against the Asus distribution that allow for a clean non-root build of the firmware. I'll be posting my progress regularly and try to provide intermediate drops for feedback. The first drop will be an equivalent of what I did for 1.0.4.6.

I'll be acquiring another router for testing and development purposes so I won't have to experiment with my "production" box. With this new box, I should be able to make some rapid progress.

The "Old" Website is still online @ http://wl700g.homelinux.net/drupal
The "New" wl700g.homelinux.net/portal/ is just a copy off that site , to make it more clearer for the users to read ( build on joomla )

I'm still in the process of transfering the accounts to the new site, But the Drupal site will always be available

When you enter the /portal there is a link on top of the page that links to the Development(drupal)

and to have the file editor:

Can anyone confirm whether or not telnet access is open on the WAN interface by default with the Asus 1.0.7.8 firmware? I think it is, but my test router is not configured as a gateway.

If so, I'll modify it to only be activate it on the LAN side.

No, telnet is not open to WAN by default, tested it several times with webscanners.

Interesting, though... Utelnetd claims to be listening on all ports when it starts. Without the firewall enabled (which is default), I would tend to believe that includes both the internal interface (br0) and the external interface (eth0).

Do you have the firewall enabled? If not, could you please confirm that telnet works on the LAN side and is blocked on the WAN side? I would very much appreciate it.

I tested it with enabled firewall of course (i didnt know anymore if its enabled by default or not). Without it there's no input-chain and telnet is open to wan, thats for sure. So you're right that is listening on all interfaces and attaching it to br0 only is a good idea and best setting anyway.

Yes, i want ftp from the LAN side, but there's no possibility to close FTP to WAN by the webinterface, so I (must still) manually delete the rule from the input-chain after every reboot :mad:

Thank you for the information. If it's possible, I'll keep my image from opening up this huge gaping security hole.

Regarding your manual delete rule, I have a similar problem where I want to add a rule for ssh access. You might be able to modify the following script to kill the offending line and plop it into rc.local, outside of any checks that limit execution to just at power-up.

#!/opt/bin/bash

lines=`/usr/sbin/iptables --list | /opt/bin/grep dpt:ssh | /opt/bin/wc -l`

if test $lines -eq "1"; then
iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
fi

FYI, rc.local gets called at boot-up and any time the configuration changes.

Sorry, I don't think so. I think this is too specialized a tool to be in a general image where "ROM" space is precious. Fortunately, you'll be able to easily expand the basic distribution to add additional application packages.

Very impressive. Especially the updated samba will be nice, i have been trying to install a new samba and kill the old samba process on my router, and well, lets just say that was not really a success. As i wrote in the MLDonkey thread, i am really looking forward to your next firmware, and thanks for all your work - Asus should hire you ;-)

I know its absolutly low prio in case of what you/we are trying to archieve, but if its easy, i would offer help for a new interface.

It's not easy because all of the back-end processing is made up of unchangeable binary blobs. In addition, a substantial portion of the front-end is generated at compile time for different language support (at one point my router was speaking to me in Chinese!).

Perhaps you can help build an interface for the additional optware modules.

Since wl700gE can download torrents, I don't run my PC on 24/7 anymore, but from time to time, I need to connect to my PC anyway.

Would it be possible to add some WOL program to the image, so we can wake PCs in LAN?

2.A good downloader for the people that use sites like Rapid Share
3.A easy way to hold a website
4.Easy to share files locally and over the internet

Hi,

I've been running KFurge's 1.0.7.8_02 firmware from the day he made it available. Thanks again KFurge.

I've recently installed an application on a pc behind the router that insists on listening on tcp port 80 (http). I've setup the port forwarding correctly for this and other ports. For some reason though the port 80 forward refuses to work.

My suspicion is that the admin web server is in the way but I can't work out how to change the port for the admin web server so that I can check.

I've also forwarded tcp port 81 to test that my forwarding is correct, so I'm sure it's something on the router that is in the way.

Apart from killing the watchdog and restarting httpd with a different port number, is there some way to reconfigure the port on which the admin web server will run?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I also added to my profile already

Hi,

First things first, so I'm just sayin' hello, cause I've just registered :) I'm all new to linux based stuff, so forgive if my question is improper. And here it is: after entering PS command on my ASUS WL-700gE, i noticed that there are three instances of /user/local/samba/sbin/smbd and the same amount of /opt/bin/mlnet.lite -allowed_ips[...]. Needless to say, they eat up lots of priceless RAM on my hardware. Is this a proper situation? My router is running firmware mentioned in the title.
