Has Asus WL-600 USB Webcam support like WL-500gP.

I mean original firmware with web interface, USB Application/Web camera.

I don't know (I have wl500g). But I advise, you can check the kernel modules in /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/usb dir. (if kernel version not 2.4.20, replace substring '2.4.20' to your_kernel_version_string)

If you look these files:
ov511_decomp.o <-- ov515 webcam module
ov518_decomp.o <-- ov518 webcam module
ov51x.o <-- ov51x webcam module
pwc.o <-- SAA8115. SAA8116 webcam module
pwcx.o <-- SAA81xx webcam module

Other kernel modules:
audio.o <-- usb audio module
printer.o <-- usb printer module
usbcore.o <-- usb main modules (HUB and etc.)

If you found ov*.o and pwc*.o modules, the WL600 compatible with WL500.

Thanks for instructions, George, but I have not ASUS WL-600 yet.

I have WL-500gPv1 and my good friend with ADSL connection will have this wl-600 router, but IT MUST HAVE WEBCAM SUPPORT.

Oleg firmware is not supported yet for this model, but

I am surprised, that no word about webcam in asus web page with this model.

I am fear, that we buy WL-600 and no webcam support, no telnet etc.

Is anybody here who has this model and can try "WebCam" support, please ?

Thank you very much and please sorry of my English. :D

...and here I am :)

First of all sorry for my bad english.

I have a wl-600g with the latest firmware installed and from the shell, under the path /lib/modules/ I found the following 4 directories:

/class with the following file:
- usblp.ko

/host with the following files:
- ehci-hcd.ko
- ohci-hcd.ko
- uhci-hcd.ko

/media with the following files:
- ov511.ko
- pwc.ko

/storage with the following file:
- usb-storage.ko

I'm not sure it will be able to handle usb webcams
