I tried the firmware file:
WL500gp-1.9.2.7-9.zip

but it wasnt possible to put it on thr router (msg: wrong version ....)
i read in another thread that there s a hardware difference between
gp and gp v2. so the firmware will not work...

my question is the following:
will there be an oleg firmware for the v2 of wl500gp ???...

or is there another way to make the -9 firmware work???

thx in advance

Firmwares for Premium v1 and v2 are incompatible.

According to Oleg, the next 10th release will contain v2 support. If you have enough courage you may test a pre-release available here:

Discussion (in Russian): http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=13567
Firmware: http://oleg.wl500g.info/10-pre/

Important: after flashing from another firmware reset the router to default settings.

I have enough courage and tested it (WL500gpv2-1.9.2.7-10-pre4.trx), but after flashing AP didnt boot-up. It jumped only to recovery mode. After flashing original fw again, everything was ok. I dont have AP connected to serial console, so I cant say more, why it didnt boot up.

I think it would be nice if you post your experience in this Russian thread. It seems that at the moment there is lack of people who own this device and have enough experience to test it. Don't worry about your English.

Try flashing using firmware restoration utility or tftp. Your flash seems was incomplete, so it was in restoration mode: firmware had no chance to start at all.

Yes, really. File was incomplete (my was 3,5MB and right was 3,6MB). Now I had download it again but I can try it tomorrow. I flashed it via restoration utility, because web interface was not able to upload it (there was error with wrong version or something).

So I tried flash it again with whole file and now it seems much better. It looks like everything works ok, but I have tested it shortly yet, so I will see more in next few days.

Hello, i've a WL-500G Premium V2 and install this firmware (WL500gpv2-1.9.2.7-10-USB-1.69.trx) so i can plug an huawei e220(try vodafone and Kanguru). But in the end just blinks a blue light.

Tried also, some dial ups, chosing -user define- upload the dial file than the APN data, but the huawei e220 just blinks a blue light.

As anyone have installed this modem with success on a V2?

Ask Engy, he is one of the developer of the koppel FW.
Koppel FW is based on Olegs FW and has some features for modems.
You can ask here: http://koppel.cz/cdmawifi/english/

But as first try: at the console perform a 'killall pppd' and wait some seconds.
If modem connects now, just use the script from howto.


Have fun

My Hub has no AC power connecter, but this guy -tacothekid1- test with powered with the same results, maybe a fix came out soon:


OK. I will try to fix this issue.

Does anybody tested v2 usb interfaces with usb modems
I had the following problem with koppel.cz software.

Usb interfaces problems WL-500GP
When I connect usb modems to my router, it does not recognize nothing, no vendor id , product id.
I tried with modem onda HS600, nothing,
SAMSUNG U700(HSDPA) , nothing
Siemens P990 (UMTS), nothing

WHen I connect hard disc no problem. I connected HDD IOMEGA 120 Giga no powered, ok.
I connected 500 G LANCE HDD, external supply, ok
I also connected an Iphone (it is not a modem) and it was recognized, even without external supply.

I tried with powered usb hub, but nothing changed.
Please engi, ask if I can help you...

Thanks
