Bekijk de volledige versie : Problem with WL-500b?

19-11-2007, 14:29

I got an ASUS Router and want to flash olegs firmware! But I don't know which! The back of the Router says "WL-500b" but in the inside on the board there is "WL-500G R1.20". Two firmwares worked yet: The latest oleg as 500bv2 but without W-LAN and the latest original firmware 500g. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your answers!

OK, I tried some more firmware and just the original ones are working. I tried versions for 500b, 500bv2 and 500g. They all work when they are original. I flashed them with the restoration-tool and after reboot the routers web-access was available. If I flash any oleg-firmware (I tried b, bv2 and g here, too) and reboot, the router is no more available not even to ping! I used the routers firmware-update and the tool, but there's no difference!
Hoping for help!

I have a little problem with my wl 500b router.

I've installed a new firmware (WL500b- and got access to new functionalities (among which, telnet).

Then while reading some posts, i found out that i could extend RAM memory to 32Mb instead of 16. So I've tried (NVRAM settings but don't remeber the exact instructions)

my router restarted but since then I couldn't get access. nothing seems to work. (no ping no tenet no wireless :confused: )

- I've tried reseting (using the restore button) but it didn't work.
- I tried nvram restore (wl500g-clear-nvram.trx and wl500g-recover.trx) but can't get to upload the files to my router
=> get error message when trying upload using firmware restore utility
=> get timeout message when trying the tftp transfer (tftp -i PUT wl500g-clear-nvram.trx)

Can someone give me a clue on how to handle this ? :( almost all posts are about the WL500G and I couldn't find anything about the 500b

Please Help :)
