Well, there was some delay in the releasing this firmware version. I wa a bit busy with various stuff and finally I've tried to made it stable. So, here it goes. Ethernet port related crashes, which was since 1.9.2.7 should go away (wl500g only), also wireless module was updated to the latest from the 1.9.3.6 beta, which seems fixes some glitches found in the 1.9.2.7 firmwares.

Changes:

Used wireless module from the 1.9.3.6 beta, should improve stability
Rewrote ethernet driver "WAN port dies workaround" completely. This should fix random reboots caused by 1.9.2.7 firmwares
Fixed ppp never ending loop, caused by pressing Disconnect button
Connect and Disconnect button should work better now in the PPTP/PPPoE mode
Removed never ending ping done by firmware, notifying guys from Taiwan of your router, then you press Connect
Updated PPTP client to 1.6.0
Fixed "Idle 0" as well as probably other settings in the web interface which are allowing 0 to be specified
Add usb serial support to the kernel, included an updated pl2303 version (thanks to Rod Whitby for porting this to the current kernel)
Added chat ppp program
USB services are get started now even if NFS only is enabled (thanks to Rod Whitby for figuring this out)
Finally, WAN Hostname no longer prevents samba from working
WL500g Deluxe now supports MAC cloning
WL500g Deluxe with an updated bootloader now correctly enables WAN port in the AP mode
ASUS test program is no longer installed, so busybox version is now used
ipkg.sh should now correctly create /opt/tmp/ipkg
NFS max block size is now 32K (use with care)
Added codepages 860, 861, 865, 866, 869, cp1250, cp1251 (use usb_vfat_options to pass additional mount flags to mount)
Old upnp entries should not have any effect then upnp is disabled
Added new network type - MAN on the static routes page, should be used with PPTP/PPPoE connections to access internal networks
Changed maximum number of routes - 16 vs 6
Fixed a PATH problem in the telnet sessions
RAW printing is now bidirectional (used p910nd 0.7)
Afterburner setting is now accessible on the wl300g/wl500g/wlhdd units (enabled for the supported devices only). You still need to enable it in the hardware by executing wlan_update once in the telnet session/hidden page, this should also fix "range" problem
Added System Command page, which is well known as Hidden Admin Page
Added support for system shutdown - press RESTORE/RESET button until power led turns off completely and release it, your unit should go "down" in several seconds. Use halt from the command line to do the same.
Replaced /usr/local/sbin/ip-ip and ip-down with ip-up-script/ip-down-script ppp options
Added /usr/local/sbin/pre-shutdown script support - called before reboot/halt
Other usefull things


Uploaded updated firmware 1.9.2.7-5a, the changes are:

Fixed RAW printing bugs, switched to unidirectional transfers by default
Fixed support for the WPA-PSK in the Client Mode, thanks to miraculix for findings
Fixed ftp server bug, which prevented files to be uploaded to subdirectories
CET Timezone update by engy, added Czech Republic
Increased number of entries on the Bandwidth page up to 32, patch from engy
Added awk applet, applied mktime patch from engy
Applied timezones uClibc patch prepared by engy
Applied tomilius patches adding several new iptables targets
Updated WL500g Deluxe to use latest ethernet module, removed closed source binaries


Grab (http://files.wl500g.info/asus/custom/oleg/1.9.2.7-5a/) your free copy of new firmware, unzip it and flash to your router. As usual, be sure to visit my page (http://oleg.wl500g.info/) if you've not done this yet.

Ah, great update! it looks like the problems i was having with -4 are now fixed.

Thank you so much.

Thanks for this update Oleg.

Yes, it's nice :). I have a slightly unrelated suggestion.. With the source, using "make clean" is really a pain because it fails. A couple of simple changes can stop it from having errors and make it work correctly, and it would be nice if they were included in the next source patch (so simple, please throw this in :D).

Thanks oleg!
I realy appreciate being able to use latest intel wi-fi driver (9.x) for my centrino. It seems to be stable with your CR5 release!


One question:

What is this message that I have in system log:

May 6 00:32:53 kernel: et1: rx stuck suspected

First time that I see these one... without changing any config!

I've noticed this as well

but et1 is the WAN port so most logical is that this is a message that it 'recovered' the WAN port from dying

Yes, this is WAN port dies workaround. It just get activated, but it does not mean, that you've any problems. As log says "suspected" - there is no reliable way to determine this. Anyway, I will remove this output (thought that I've done this).

Oleg
06-05-2005, 09:07
What is the sequence between shutdown and reset settings? Can it be altered with the pre-shutdown script?

pre-shutdown is get called after decision has been made.
As for sequence.
Then you initially press button, there is a 3 second delay before anything gets activated. Once this 3 seconds interval elapses, the power led should start blinking for 5 seconds indicating, that restore to defaults would occur if you release the button. Once this 5 seconds interval elapses, power led will turn off for 5 seconds completely indicating, that it you release the button the device would go down. If you did not release a button, the things will start over - i.e. 3 seconds of nothing, then 5 seconds restore, then 5 seconds down, etc.

It's custom firmware based off of ASUS' GPL source for 1.9.2.7. It's the 5th custom revision (CR5).

But after I push the buttom after 5 seconds then turn off my AP
When I turn on it again...the Page has not asked me to set all new data
and the data also there...just like I have not upgrade it...

So?...what's problem with the reset buttom?

is my build system broken or are there strange behaviour in the new firmware source ?

1) I noticed that lzma.zip contains a dos exe (lzma.exe). Should my unzip be capable handling it ? Because I find it not to be
2) I did not remember previous firmware to depends on ncurses for building. In this one, 'make oldconfig' called by main Makefile at some stage do some stuff that finally broke, asking for ncurses devel + libs.
3) I have some trouble at the wl.o extracting stage. wl.o file created appears to be 0 bytes while the original .gz one has been extracted at its original place. *strange*

Any idea ?

yes, unzip handles this nicely.


2) I did not remember previous firmware to depends on ncurses for building. In this one, 'make oldconfig' called by main Makefile at some stage do some stuff that finally broke, asking for ncurses devel + libs.

this is from the begining - ncurses are needed for make menuconfig, which is get called for both firmware and kernel.


3) I have some trouble at the wl.o extracting stage. wl.o file created appears to be 0 bytes while the original .gz one has been extracted at its original place. *strange*

works fine for me too. Your gunzip does not understand -c option as seems, does it really old?

you should release button, then LED is blinking, not then it's off.

Unfortunately, It does not work. (in my case and with: 2 * WL-500g in AP mode, WDS and WPA-PSK / AES).
Here's what i did:
I had a working WDS setup with the ASUS 1.9.4.0 firmware and flashed both routers with 1.9.2.7-CR5 firmware, leaving the settings unchanged. After reboot; WDS NOt working.

Then flashed both routers back with 1.9.4.0, again leaving the settings unchanged. WDS is working now...

hi,
nfsserver with rsize/wsize=32768 is pretty fast, but after enable the NFS-Server, the log seems to stops after:

.
Jan 1 01:00:02 kernel: PDC20265: IDE controller on PCI bus 01 dev 08
Jan 1 01:00:02 kernel: PCI: Enabling device 01:01.0 (0004 -> 0007)
Jan 1 01:00:02 kernel: PDC20265: chipset revision 2
and the 'clear', 'save', 'refresh' button are no longer available...also after reset to factory default. If I disable NFS-Server, the log continuus and the buttons get visible again.

cu,
peter

PS:after enable/disable/enable the NFS-Server the buttons are back and the log works...I dont know why.

Start telnet/ssh session to router and type this:

And try printing again.

Oleg
08-05-2005, 15:45
yes, sure. as seems drivers do not expect bidirectional communication, so printing hangs at some point.

I would like to know if anyone has any positive effect with bidirectional RAW printing. Otherwise I will remove it, as it only causes problems as seems.

Nope. Tried several times. Had this isue with R4 also, green picture but i think no syslog entrys. Just had no time to tell here.
The Cam worked on a x86 linux and windows box, so i am curious what the problem can be on 500g ...

Please, can you tell me what the wlan_update tool does, i started it acidentely (no --help parameter check ;)) and now have afterburner supported. I know it patches something in the chipset eeprom, is this possible harmfull and is it reversible ?
What does this mean it maybe fixes the range problem ?

One last, is the output of "free" meaningfull in any way ? Free mem value changes in a way that seems strange when loading and killing software.
Also samba is not working, deamons die without notice but i may have missed some configuration point.

I have the same problems with my HP990cxi printer than FIB already described earlier:
Text is only printed partly (the first lines on a page and the last on another page).

I tried the fix given by Oleg:

killall p910nd
p910nd -f /dev/usb/lp0 0

But it has no positive effect for me (FIB has more luck!). I think the fix is directed only to USB printers (Is this correct Oleg?) and unfortunately I am using the parallell interface to connect the HP990cxi (the USB is used for the external disk).

Has Oleg also a fix for the parallell printer interface ?It would be great because CR4 was working very well with my printer (with RAW option), and otherwise CR5 seems to be a good improvement step. It would be a pity to have to go back to CR4 in order to be able to use the print server again. Thanks in advance for every help with this problem.

Additional Remark: Concerning the introduced bidirectional functionality of the interface in CR5: the information of the printer is not detected by my Windows XP Pro system and the HP990cxi drivers and utilities.
So I think that the new function is not useful at this state (for me, with my HP990cxi...).

Last remark: The work of the developers in this forum is great ! As a Linux newbie I am only able to be a very pleased user of this superb work. I appreciate very much !

Nope. Tried several times. Had this isue with R4 also, green picture but i think no syslog entrys. Just had no time to tell here.
The Cam worked on a x86 linux and windows box, so i am curious what the problem can be on 500g ...

Have you tried both refresh and activex mode? Also, try 1.9.2.7-4a. There was no webcam changes in the -5.



Please, can you tell me what the wlan_update tool does, i started it acidentely (no --help parameter check ;)) and now have afterburner supported. I know it patches something in the chipset eeprom, is this possible harmfull and is it reversible ?
What does this mean it maybe fixes the range problem ?

The things are not harmfull. Yes, they're reversible, but there is no reason to reverse them. This is a code "prepared" by ASUS. And as seems, ASUS will call this automatically starting with 1.9.4.0. Anyway, there was two changes performed enabled Afterburner (does not have an effect if you've disabled it in the web interface) and changed maximum allowed output power for the wireless part.



One last, is the output of "free" meaningfull in any way ? Free mem value changes in a way that seems strange when loading and killing software.

free = free + shared + buffered

Afterburner setting is now accessible on the wl300g/wl500g/wlhdd units (enabled for the supported devices only). You still need to enable it in the hardware by executing wlan_update once in the telnet session/hidden page, this should also fix "range" problem

Just wanted to share my experience with the wireless module. I was having enormous problems with wireless - from very low range/power to continous disconnects. Upgraded to this new firmware 1.9.2.7-CR5 and activated afterburner succesfully - my wireless connection is finally working again. I now have a very large range, much better than with the 1.9.2.7-4 or even 1.8.1.7 firmwares, both custom. The connection hasn't dropped yet, and has been on for several hours so, stability has also improved. Haven't came across any other problem until now so I'm very satisfied with this new version.

Thanks for your work.

It should work for sure. I've no idea why it does not work for you...

Status of the problem with a HP990cxi printer with parallell interface:

I have integrated the fix "killall p910nd and p910nd -f /dev/printers/0 1" in my post-boot file. After that I checked again thoroughfully the printing function.
My observations:
1) With the last version of the HP enhanced driver (version.4.3.3) the printer does not work correctly at all (same symptoms as described earlier by FIB, Fred, myself and others)
2) With the basic version of the driver (the one embedded in Windows XP) the printer works in some situations (f.i. printing of short mails) but not for complex pages (f.i. printer test page of windows, or using the booklet function of the well known fineprint print utility).

Concerning the introduced bidirectional functionality in CR5: the driver detects the availibility of the bidirectional feature. But the printing utilities are not able to use it.

I have downgraded my WL500g back to CR4. With this firmware the printing works (again!) like a charm.
I regret to make the step back to CR4 because the other functions of CR5 seem to work very well and are really more stable than CR4. But I really need the printserver function (it was for me an important argument to buy the Wl500g).

Question to Oleg: Is it possible to get a version of CR5 with the original printing functionality of CR4? In case of limited investment to produce this partial backstep I think it would be a reasonable compromise. Thank you in advance for every help in this direction.

do you've timeouts in the system log?

First of all, you find as annex the syslog made with CR4 from boot up to time after a successful print.

In order to document the problem I have installed again CR5. You find as further annexes:
1) Syslog with CR5 without fix: from boot up to time after print of 2 documents (both documents unsuccessful)
2) Syslog with CR5 with fix : from boot up to time after print of 4 documents:
first doc: short doc printed with basic driver: successful
second doc: XP printer test page with basic driver: partly unsuccessful
third doc: short doc with HP driver: unsuccessful
fourth doc: XP printer test page with HP driver: unsuccessful

Would other infos be useful for you before i go back again to CR4 installation?

Hello Oleg, Thanks for your efforts to solve our printer problems.
I have installed the 5a-pre1 version.
In my case I register unfortunately no progress. In raw modus the printer does not print anything more correctly. Same situation with the basic driver or with the HP driver.

As I need to use the print server, I tried to switch to the LPR modus. The result is positive. The printer is working correctly. (I don't know if it was also the case with the original CR5 version; I did not test it earlier). So at this time I will stay with your last version and print with the LPR modus. In waiting and hope that a solution is once available for the RAW modus. I will also inform you if the other functions of 5a-pre1 are workink correctly.

Hi Oleg
I try the firmware, and the printer (hp890), print all the text, and a lot of other characters, my canon printer (Pixma4000), connected to the usb port, can't print at all.
With the firmware 1.9.2.7-5, the Canon printer, prints one good print, than I have to reboot, to get the printer work again.
If I after a reboot print one one the HP printer, then I can't print one the canon after this

Sorry for my english.

Will it work with "ordinary" WL-500g?
And what "range" problem does it fix?

I have also wondered about that. I have just recently bought my 2nd WL-500g, and it will be upgraded to this new firmware very shortly.

Will I get better range if i commit this "upgrade" on my WL-500g? I have some problmes with the range one floor down. One floor up is no problem. But that may be because of that the ground floor consists of very much concrete, and my 2nd floor consists of wood... I don't know.

But will I get better range by doing this? And how do I do it? I have already set the TX power to 84 mW.

Thanks. And thanks for a super firmware!!!

I just installed this firmware, but I got a kind of seriuos problem. You see after installing I wasn't able to access my router anymore, because it didn't accept the user/pass I use. So I tried to reset it, but I still got the same message. Anyone know how I can fix this?

The default user/password is admin/admin, but it as I said don't work anymore. Does this version come with another default or something?

I need an example of failed ftp transfer. Please prepare failing directory structure, zip it and post here.

here is the file with all subdirectories .....only the first directory is
created ....i got the same error for the others using a ftp client :
->cannot creat file in subdirectory (the subdirectory is not created)
it says i have not the authorisation

thanks

Someone should at least say what is the problem exactly and provide folder/file names hierarchy. My test case works fine now.

Hello Oleg,

I've noticed the same problem for all your 1.9.2.7 releases :
Sometimes a LIST transfer hangs when the directory's size is greater than the MTU.

I have put a sniffer between the router and the modem and take 2 captures :
- ftp4.enc with 1.8.1.7.3
- ftp3.enc with 1.9.2.7 CR5a

In both captures i just ask for 2 different directories :
- one is very short
- on is longer

With the release 1.9, the second transfer hangs.


Ethereal signal a trouble for the 33rd frame in the file ftp4.enc (TCP previous segment lost) and this frame is not received by the FTP client (which causes the timeout).

There is also another difference between the captures : The SYN packet send by the release 1.9 ask for an MSS of 1460 bytes, whereas in release 1.8 it requires only 1452 bytes (correctly decreased by 8 for PPPoE overhead).

I hope to have helped you and keep up this good job.

Antiloop, please update your mirror.

You need to launch it manually by adding -b switch. Anyway, I'm absolutely sure it will not add any benefit for you. So, after initial 1.9.2.7-5 steps it was disabled by default.

When some specific type of wireless card connect to the network ( A2500 Laptop ) the other wirelless users( a siemens card and a aiport from mac card) are disconnected and cant connect anymore.

Ok i have a record from the log i hope you can find something (i think its because of WMM) thank you.

Hello there. I tried to use ppdev.o from http://www.sephail.net/projects/openwrt/ with this firmware but no luck. The thing just freezes when i run lpif -d . I believe the problem is the kernel's version. Would be possible for you to include ppdev in the firmware, or at least to make a working copy of the module available for download?

Thank you

Thank you, Oleg. I tried that but same thing...when i try to set something on the LPT with lpif it gives me an Segmentation fault then a reboot. I'm very intrigued by this because i have here two firmwares:
Your firmware - on which ppdev with lpif doesn't work
OpenWRT - on which my OV511-based webcam doesn't work (it just reboots after i start palantir)
=> i can't make them both work
However, I'll try to delete everything unusable from your firmware (printing, dnsmasq etc) and have another go. Maybe you can try (if you have enough free time) lpif -s 255 and lpif -s 0 on your router, to see how it handles it.
A confirmation would be very useful

Thank you again for your work and attention :)

parallel port stuff is not supported, as ASUS have not released source code. FYI, parallel port modules are compiled for 2.4.5 kernel, so looks like ppdev from 2.4.20 do not like this. Drop a mail to ASUS tech support about GPL violation.

Well, there is a module for the parallel port, module which works on OpenWrt, so i guess it should worl here too. Here it is: http://pwp.netcabo.pt/0246517002/parport_splink.c However, I don't think it's written by ASUS, but, as i said, it works on openwrt, so why it wouldn't here?

Hi,

Im using Oleg's 1.9.2.7-5a firmware, and I noticed durring a firewall test that the port 80 is open and responding, in spite of my port of web access from wan is a different port. I tested it with my dynamic IP from wan, on port 80 and the login box popped up, althoug my web access port is a different one.

Put back the 1.9.2.7-4, the port was closed, then upgraded to 7-5.a again, and the port 80 was open again!

Clould someone else check this at his/her router, please?

Gee, I'm flooding! But I have some more stuff to mention...

Another 1.9.2.7-5a thing... the Makefile uses WL500gx as the default model, which caused a bit of a headache. Maybe that was already stated, but this probably wasn't....

iplimit cannot be used as a module... it causes problems and cannot be loaded. This is a known issue--I had it before myself...

[admin@AsusRouter /]$ insmod ipt_iplimit.o
Using /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/ipt_iplimit.o
insmod: unresolved symbol ip_conntrack_find_get

So hopefully in the next version iplimit (Networking options -> IP: Netfilter Configuration -> Connections/IP limit match support) can be made built-in (or it won't work at all), and Networking options -> QoS and/or fair queueing -> Firewall based classifier can at least be compiled as a module (though I don't see how it could hurt having it built-in either).

And while I'm rambling, it might be nice if "length" (LENGTH match support) could be compiled as a module also... It helps with some traffic shaping stuff (looked up "iptables tricks" on Google... or "iptables tips," one of those).

Thanks!

But internet doesnt work. When 1 press 'connect' it works again!

Well, both 1.9.2.7-5 and 1.9.2.7-5a are not stables on my wiley.

I have never had such wan port dies problem or anything similar but since 1.9.2.7-5 and after, my wiley works fine for a couple a day after I flashed it, then suddenly stops giving Internet access.

When my ethernet modem is directly connected to the PC, everything works fine (means : both I and the router have Internet access).

My WAN configuration is static IP.
There are no errors at all in syslog.

After reflashing 1.9.2.7-4 and reenable flashfs (means : I use the same flash data in 1.9.2.7-5/5a and in 1.9.2.7-4) make it works like a charm.

Any hint ?

thx.

Since i changed to 1.9.2.7 CR5 Olegs... im having problems connecting to FTP's.
So the behavior is:

1st - On Lan side when i connect to any ftp there is no problem at all.

2nd -When i connect to a remote ftp(WAN) i cant transfer files at all. The file transfer will be stuck for infinite time.

3rd - In other hand when i connect to a remote ftp(WAN) withoud PASSIVE mode... im able to transfer files... but sometime one file or other gets stuck. After sometime he starts to transfer again.

Note: Sorry but i didn't put any log files... because the WL500g doesn't record anything about this in web interface.

Please check if this behavior is from this firmware because when i used 1.8.2.4 and many other firmwares i never face this problem.

Thank you.

Do you use pppoe?

Tomekk
27-05-2005, 12:26
Yes i use pppoe connection (ADSL pppoe).

My settings for pppoe in WL500g are:

Idle Disconnect Time in seconds(option): 0

Tx Only: Uncheck

Enable PPPoE Relay?: No

MTU: Default Value

MRU: Default Value

All other fields are empty since its only required by special ISP's.

Note:In "Special Requirement from ISP" all fields are empty for the same reason.

This bug is fixed already, wait for next firmware release.

Well, if you'd searched with Google you would've found that it has to do with QoS and if you've searched this forum you also would've found that this isn't anything to worry about.

Or don't. It should do with a skim. Actually, I think it's a Wiki (unless you count the custom firmware page which is neither a Wiki nor a thread), and honestly, I don't see why everybody has to read something thoroughly or even understand it if they just want to get something working. I mean, I'm not quite that way--I usually like to understand it, but looking back on all of the time I spent on this router... I don't think it's even worth it considering how naturally unstable the wireless function is, seemingly no matter what driver. Ahem. Besides, the Wiki just explains some internal manipulations, and it was denounced quite recently for not being up-to-date and not explaining much.


http://chupa.nl/phpwiki/index.php/PackageWondershaper
somebody please update this wondershaper instruction.
please...

i cant make it work because i think it's for the old firmware.
now, the /init is not valid anymore.

But THIS Wiki page should be of more assistance:

http://wiki.wl500g.info/index.php/how%20to%20enable%20post%20processing%20in%201.9.2 .7-CR4%20firmware

Anyway, and sorry if I seemed rude but I just dislike the whole "read a book" philosophy when you just want to get a tiny thing working (and especially if the information isn't even fully available in that book, and especially if you have to hunt down that book first at a specified location in which it doesn't exist--and all this coming from someone who knows the answer to your question), here's a more direct approach:

1. You seem to already know the values for Download and Upload, but you can double-check them if you want.
Determine the theoretical download speed of your connection (the speed your ISP says you get). Guides seem to suggest doing the opposite and using "real-world" values, but for me they make downloads slower (e.g., choosing 3500 will limit it to about 2200 on download speed tests so I use 4500; maybe it's my ISP, do what works best, feel free to experiment and try real-world values too but only after stopping wondershaper). Couldn't hurt using the real-world upload value I guess. I only really noticed issues with using the real-world download one.
As part of step 1, you can test values and speeds by using a site such as http://performance.toast.net/ for your test site and doing the following to test:
Access your router with telnet, ssh, or whatever (telnet 192.168.1.1, usually) and log in. I assume your WAN interface is eth1. Most are. If not, try ppp0. If not, search the forum. Anyway, use the following to test wshaper, replacing WanIf with your WAN interface (try what I said for that; it's usually eth1), MaxDown with the maximum download you've calculated, and MaxUp with the maximum upload:
$ wshaper start WanIf MaxDown MaxUp
To see the status (I doubt you would ever want to), do this:
$ wshaper status WanIf
To stop wondershaper for comparative testing or whatever, do this (note that it's unnecessary to stop wondershaper before running another "wshaper start", that's done automatically):
$ wshaper stop WanIf
Now determine your best values and continue on to make them (sort of) permanent.

2. Access your router with telnet, ssh, or whatever (telnet 192.168.1.1, usually) and log in.

3. If you don't already have post-firewall set up for anything, continue reading. If you do, learn how to use vi (it's a little bit beyond the scope of even this discussion, but it's just "vi /usr/local/sbin/post-firewall", press the i key to insert anything, press ESC to get out of that mode, press a capital J to join two lines, press d twice to remove a line, press :w to save, :q! to forcibly quit, or :wq to save and quit, use the arrow keys to "move around," and that's about it I think) add the line "/sbin/wshaper start $1 MaxDown MaxUp", replacing everything in caps with what you really want, and removing the quotes :).

4. Since you don't have post-firewall set up, this should work for you every time... but "cat" it to double-check (cat /usr/local/sbin/post-firewall). If nothing shows up, yay. Read on. Otherwise, or if you want to change it, go up to step 3 (use "vi" as an editor and go into insert mode as I describe).

5. Perform this (without the $ included):

$ mkdir -p /usr/local/sbin
$ echo "#!/bin/sh" > /usr/local/sbin/post-firewall

6. Now do this, replacing MaxDown and MaxUp with the correct values:
$ echo "/sbin/wshaper start $1 MaxDown MaxUp" >> /usr/local/sbin/post-firewall

7. THE FOLLOWING IS REQUIRED TO SAVE EVERYTHING YOU'VE JUST DONE!

$ flashfs save
$ flashfs commit

8. Good. Now reboot to test your changes.
$ reboot

9. If you want to make sure wshaper has actually run, and correctly, you can use this, as I described in step 1:
$ wshaper status WanIf
If it's not, that will probably turn up blank or something like it.

10. Yay. Now, if it's not working, first check to see if anybody has corrected me and I haven't fixed it. Next, check your work.

Phew. OK. Again, sorry for the rudeness there Styno. I'm a little grouchy because I had to get up early... I don't drink coffee, surprisingly.

Tomillius, I appreciate you trying to help here, but I disagree with you. When someone registers here as a user, the forum rules are displayed and it would be nice if ppl followed the rules a bit better. Let me quote the first forum rule:


• Try to solve your problem first!
If you have a problem, it is the intention you open a topic at the moment you are not able to solve it anymore AFTER trying it yourself. Always read the manual and take a look at the support page of the manufacturer. Try searching google, google groups and offcourse the search function at the forum. A lot of FAQs at other forums have solutions. If a question is already asked, or it is easy to solve or find yourself, than it is not the intention to post it here.

This rule has a reason: At one point there were so many new forummembers asking the same questions over and over again, it became irritating and very time consuming for the more regular members to answer those questions. It also drowns the really intersting and new problems/solutions. In the past these kind of posts, as the one discussed here, would have been trashed by the moderators. Unfortunately, if noone steps up and tries to keep things clean here in the forum, then it would become a mess real quick. And if that makes me a bully .... ah well, I don't give a shit.

Again: The question asked here has been asked (almost) literally a few times before, so finding the appropriate info shouldn't be really that hard.

If you would like to further discuss the forum rules, this should be done through a separate thread or by PM.

Actually, I couldn't find the answer specifically addressed after looking for a good few minutes. The Wiki was no help for newbies of the subject and should be modified.. but I don't really feel like doing it :). I understand your other points completely, though. If getting wondershaper up and running has been directly addressed anywhere else (and applicable to current-generation firmware), then I do apologize for that--I just couldn't find it in what I felt was a reasonable amount of time. And I suppose I still remember what it's like to be a newbie (at other forums in which I am no longer, that is, because I still sort of am one here).

About the WIKI, yes that one is rather outdated. I created *kuch* *kuch* most of those articles in the 1.7.5.9 days when I myself was a noob too.

Is that also in the next firmware?? or do u need more info to help me out.

Well like we said in this topic for my case the solutions are:

- For WAN problem when diferents types of wireless cards connect, desactivate the WMM.

- For FTP problem you will need to wait for the next release of oleg's firmware.

All others firmware freatures are working very well..

Hi guys!!!

I've bought WL-500g recently to connect me and neighbours to Internet. I've got quite good wifi connection with public IP address. The network consists of:

- Asus WL-500g connected to Internet (ethernet WAN)
- Alfa AP set to WDS with Asus
- 3 Ovislink client devices connected to Alfa AP
- 2 my laptops connected to Asus or Alfa

I started with latest official 1.9.4.0 Beta, everybody was dancing and singing. But only until neigbour's son started with huge downloads, using Bittorent (or how's the thing called). When running that, my speed is like 10-20 kbits and ping about 3 seconds!!! The line is 512/128 kbit down/up, with 15-20 ms ping on idle.

I say OK, no problem, there's Bandwidth Management in WL-500g. I've limited his IP to 64 kbit download, it seemed to work. Next day he promised me to download only at night and I removed the limit. Obviously, he turned it on again few hours after the promise. I've set the limit again, but it didn't work any more. I was trying to set the limit again and again, the only thing I achieved was that I had to reset the Asus because it was no longer possible to connect to web interface.

After that I decided to try Oleg's 1.9.2.7 CR5a, set up Asus again and started to read about Wondershaper. I've got some Linux knowledge, but to be honest, using just web interface would be easier for me. I've tried to set the limit using web interface again and found it uses wshaper, but probably different way than described here - I've found no /usr/local/sbin/post-firewall. So, this is the story and a couple of dumb questions now:

- is it suitable for my purpose to use just web interface to set bandwidth limit???

- if I decide to set it up manually, could somebody advice me how (ports, priorities,...) and make a script for me???

- if doing it manually, there is probably some more sophisticated setting than just limit speed for one IP address. Any suggestion is welcome

Styno
09-06-2005, 16:00
- is it suitable for my purpose to use just web interface to set bandwidth limit???I think the webinterface should do the trick. It limits the total bandwith to a certain pc (not just bittorrent, but HTTP, FTP, etc. too). Don't know why it stopped working...


- if I decide to set it up manually, could somebody advice me how (ports, priorities,...) and make a script for me???

- if doing it manually, there is probably some more sophisticated setting than just limit speed for one IP address. Any suggestion is welcomeThat's a difficult one. The 'tc' (and Wondershaper) possibilities are virtually endless. Your problem can be solved in several ways, but the simplest way (which is implemented using the webinterface afaik) is to limit the bandwith to the neighbours son and to give everyone else the rest.

For the other options you could take a look at my script in the Wondershaper discussion thread (http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=752). It is an example of an customized Wondershaper script.

tomilius
09-06-2005, 21:01
I think possibly a bigger question you should be asking is, "do I have the time and the energy to deal with a router and its problems every few days?" For me, this router has been no picnic, and having to mess with it every 2 days is no exaggeration at all... OK, well, most of that was just customized tweaking, but I haven't found the wireless interface to be stable worth anything nor the router to be very reliable overall--that's just me, many people I'm sure have gotten it stable and set up great for their purposes, but... *shrug.* It's something to consider. I'm mostly saying this as an "I told you so," really, in case it happens to you too. ;)

Either way, welcome to the community, Pup. You may be here for a while. Muhahahahahaha! I've taken Styno's logical view on newbies (I'd be happy to explain everything, but I must restrain myself or everyone will feel they deserve equal explanation which I likely won't be willing to give a 3rd, 4th, or 5th time--I'm serious, not poking fun at anything here) :) so you'll have to do some looking around the forum and site to figure out the internal mechanisms of custom firmware and, perhaps, of linux too. I'll tell you one thing, since you mentioned it: post-firewall must be created. I guess I'll give you a link too, but just one: http://wl500g.dyndns.org/. Follow Styno's Wondershaper link (http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=752) as well, and you shouldn't have any trouble finding the Getting Started (http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=1984) section, which I've restrained myself from linking... oh, no I haven't. Now that's all. In a perfect world you'd have found and used those already, and possibly even solved your problem.

Styno & Tomilius,

thank you for quick response, guys.

Just to explain my approach. You hit the nail on the head, Tomilius. I really don't have time to become WL-500 and Linux expert. First I was just trying to work out my trouble, finding the best value for money (time, effort,...) solution, after I realized that the easy web interface setting didn't work. I understand also your approach and you might be surprised that I had read all the things you mention. I really know that post-firewall must be created and I would probably have no problem to follow step by step instructions in your post 16336 (thank you for it!!!). I just didn't find any suitable-for-dumbs-like-I-am explanation how to build the script - all the commands and their parameters. After reading all that stuff my feeling is there's a lot of useful things I can get, but it will take a lot of time to make them work, for a dumb like me. My idea was to ask somebody here to give me some template script I can just put some values (port numbers, kilobits,...) in, test and use.

Well, now I hope Styno is right and the easy way will work, to solve the trouble. Then I will see if I somebody gives me a hand or I will have time and energy to study and test all the stuff. I understand there are bunches of possibilities how to improve connection behavior, prioritizing response time sensitive applications. I like idea to protect the network funcionality against people like this "downloader".

If you don't have the time/effort to exert on one method, another is to kick down the neighbor's door, open his BitTorrent client (you may have to get him a better one such as BitComet), and set an upload/download limit. There's another important thing. You have to limit the upload or you're screwed for the download too. That may WELL be the problem. Limit the upload to, say, 32k.

Styno

Tomillius, I can almost see you writing the stuff that you do, very illustrative :)

Pup, I', sorry, but writing a customized wshaper script will take me hours and when I send you that script you probably want something to be different so I can spend another hour or so. Then another guy steps in and say's: 'community, can you make me a script that does so and so, please?', by then I can spend all my spare time doing the hard work for others who don't have (or don't want to spend) time on it. Also we (I) don't get paid to do so, therefore I give you hits to the solution and you should figure it out by yourself. If you've studied the hints and have further question, you're welcome ofcourse.

Consider the WL-500g as a new hobby you just bought. :rolleyes:

Note: As I'm not a native English speaker, I might seem rude or blunt but it's all meant in a positive way!

Pup
11-06-2005, 23:12
I've got the message, guys :-) It just took me some time to accept the fact I've bought a toy instead of tool.

I spent last night testing. Here are my findings.


Shaping set by web interface is definitely unusable. It shapes the bandwidth, but:

- Web interface to Asus is almost unserviceable from computers with limited bandwidth. You're constantly getting error messages in IE and you have good luck if you succeed just to remove the speed limit. This is the reason why I had to reset the unit last time.

- When down- or uploading on machine with limited bandwith, you have not very slow, but even no ping. You get just timeout messages, even if pinging only the router.


After that, the decision was very easy - set up post-firewall with wshape. I also tested and proved that running upload terribly degrades downloads. It was mentioned here regarding DSL, but it's the same for Wi-Fi WAN connection.

For the beginning, I decided to use very simple scenario - put bandit's IP in low priority:

/sbin/wshaper start $1 250 120 192.168.15.6

Since he's probably out for weekend I don't know results yet. But at least upload doesn't affect download and pings are very quick even if I have upload and download running together. Big difference!!!

Dark side is that I lost more than just 10% or so of the line speed, because my connection has a special behavior, designed for browsing and against downloading. Connection speed is doubled, but only for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds of full load it slows down back to the base limit. This feature in fact doubles the speed for browsing, but I must set the basic limit in wshaper to solve troubles with up- and downloading, which slow down the connection to the base limit.

Styno
12-06-2005, 16:48
You're coming along quite well I see. The problem with bandwith shaping is indeed the fact that you need to set the highest sustained bandwith instead of the maximum. And even then you need to keep some extra headroom.

What might be a solution is to use a dynamic distribution of the available bandwith. Below is an example of a class definition where a certain base bandwith is assured, but when needed AND available, it can borrow bandwith from other classes.

tc class add dev $DEV parent 1:1 classid 1:30 htb rate (($UPLINK/10))kbit ceil $((9*$UPLINK/10))kbit burst 6k prio 2

Hello,
What is the diffence between the 1.9.2.7 CR5a version and the 1.9.2.7 version of the ASUS site?

What is the last stable version for the WL-500g?

thank you

Dynamic distribution sounds interestingly, but I have no idea how to use it for me. The "speed doubling" is especially useful for web browsing, but when somebody starts http download and I have higher limit for http than sustained line speed, I lose all the advantages of shaping, I believe.

BTW, another side effect of shaping showed up. Web interface to Asus is (almost) unusable from Internet now - no problem from LAN, big problem from WAN. Looks that web connection to Asus via shaped interface is a problem. Not only web management, also connection to camera doesn't work. Or better, it looks that ASP pages with Java script don't work, static (display.jpg on camera) picture works.

Speaking about camera, after connecting it router's CPU runs constantly on 80-90% load by rcamd. I'm very interested how stable it will be now.

Generally, my feeling about WL-500g is that it has a lot of features, but often not finished and tuned. Also, I'm in doubts how many of them you can use at time, with respect to router's HW resources.

This dynamic behaviour of your ISP WAN connection is a problem for standard shaping stuff. I have no answer for that problem. If you're desperate you should readup on linux traffic shaping www.lartc.org.

Also, I'm in doubts how many of them you can use at time, with respect to router's HW resources.If it was a well polished and finished product there wouldn't be such a large community, d'you think? But anyway, try and find a product wich is significantly better at the same price compared to a WL-500g with this Oleg firmware....

I'm just a bit dissapointed that things don't work as promised. I've bought quite expensive Philips Toucam Pro II (PCVC840K) camera and I can get only very compressed 320x240 static JPEG from Internet. ActiveX streaming stuff works nicely, but only from LAN/WLAN. Motion detection also doesn't work, it's only bombing me with e-mails when I hot plug the camera with Sense Level set to High or Medium, regardless any motion in front of the camera. After reboot I get no e-mail any more.

Yes, I know I can get another PWC driver and set it to 640x480, I can also get much better motion detection software, put all that stuff to USB memory stick and start to play. I would do it (and love it) if I were ten, twenty years younger.....

Just one question. I cannot connect to Asus using Telnet from Internet. I've set port forwarding (virtual server in web interface) of port 23 external IP to the same port on internal IP, it doesn't work. I use port forward for web access to the other AP and all client devices in WLAN, without trouble. What's wrong?

Sorry, Oleg, but you should understand I didn't complain about your work. Since I never bought anything from you I can hardly criticise you. Wrong place, you're right.

Hi,

just for peoples who don't know, why your CAM doesn't show larger pages :eek:

It isn't OLEG's fault, to look behind the szene you need to take a look at this Page:

http://www.smcc.demon.nl/webcam/

This page tells you the storry about the PWC Sources from the original author
and why his support ended.


And this Page:

http://www.saillard.org/linux/pwc/

This Author took over the ended work from the one above and is trying to get a complete new Kernel-Module working on this compression stuff he still is working (I think).

To complete the Storry who's fault it is !!!

it's the Fault from Br...c.m/A..S/D-.... and others, why ???

Well, just because the Firms mentioned above doesn't give out the Sources for the WLan and Ethernet Modules, and because of this we can't build one of the newest kernel where the new PWC-Module would like to work with (It dont like the older 2.4'er Series anymore).

I even tried to build the newest 2.4.31'er kernel with success, the only problem we have, how to get the f.. oooops sorry

The nice wl.o Module to work with the newer kernel since we don't have the Source we aren't be able to modify the structure to get it to work with the newer kernel. We don't even know how to patch the kernel.

And don't even think about the 2.6'er kernel versions. Since the complete WL-XXX productline is sold with a complete GNU-based enviroment the owner should give this Sources back to the GNU-Comunity, they are trying to turn us dumm, when they give just about 90% of it out, but the rest of 10% the driver, which is needed to get this thing done, is missing only the old stuff from 2.4.20 is there and a pre compiled kernel module.

And when you try to get all the Information together, then you will notice, that all Firms that sell products based on that Br...... Components, just give never away a newer kernel as the the 2.4.20.

A..S tried to be smart and was trying to patch the older 2.4.20' kernel with some USB-Stuff from the 2.4.25' Version, just to open the possibility for newer USB-Stuff to add.

To get a working Kernel for this MIPSy thing isn't that hard, it took me about 3 days to get the new kernel from

http://www.linux-mips.org/wiki/Main_Page

compiled with the normal-Board stuff from BR...... inside of it, but if it comes to the Ethernet/Wireless stuff, I was lost in the air. I just noticed it as soon as the kernel compiled through and I was ready to build the TRX-Image for my nice little WL-HDD thing. It don't like to mix the kernelversion (wl.o for kernel 2.4.20 and the new 2.4.31 don't like each other)

To bad :mad: , that I figured everything out, as I ended with the kernel and glued everything together. (oops why it doesn't work :confused: )

If you like and have a linux system up and running, get the stuff from here:

http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/wireless/WL-500g-03/GPL_1927.zip

than the newest costimized collection from OLEG

and if you like to try the latest and last pwc stuff for the 2.4.'er kernel series
take a look at here:

http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=2551
()everything you need inclusive all patches)

And go ahead cooking :D :D :D .

If you know a little kernel-hacking then try to get the wl.o module to gether wih a kernelversion 2.6 Working, if you are good in reverse engineering, then I think you would make those people here :

http://linux-bcom4301.sourceforge.net/go/progress

and other points in the internet happy and us of course too.

This Posting wasn't ment to be a picks or a hit to you or others here in the Forum, I wrote this just because it took myself a lot time for collecting all this Information.

By the way if you would like to help us getting the sources and you are rich ?? then take a look here ??

http://gpl-violations.org/index.html

But as far as I understand all this things with my normal english, I think the GPL-Violation.org only try to get the firms to tell on there Homepages, that they are using GPL'ed Software. Some of them which this site talk about success are just showing the Links to the Homepages, where they got the Sources from to build the Firmware fora minimum amount of dollars for a maximum business !!!

But they don't show how nor even tell and don't think about the sources.

I think that's the complete storry if I made any mistakes sorry fell free to correct me, and before I forget every name beloning to a firm or is trademarked by a firm belongs to this firm etc.
Sorry for my bad english, I'm german ;) ;)

@PUP:

If you are upset with the current Situation, feel free to contact your lawer for a expensive fight against br.., AS..., D-L..., lev.. O.., Longs...., etc.

But like I said above, I thnk the main Problem is Bro..c.m since the other are just bying the whole stuff from them !!

I think the complete sources are to expensive instead fof just a kernel-module.

We will see, when A..S give out the new 1.9.4.xx Version Firmware for the wl500g ;-)

If they are still sitting on this kernel release, it realy looks like as they don't have the full sources (that's my my opinion)

Hi all,

I am using also firmware version 1.9.2.7-5a on my 500g and it's working perfectly for my Windows notebook using WPA-PSK.
Also it's no problem to connect to the router using a Mac with OS/X 10.4 (Tiger) installed. Problem is, that that the Mac is unable to reconnect after waking up from sleep mode. You'll have to choose the connection manually again providing network name, encryption type and pre-shared key.

Maybe others here have encountered the same problem meanwhile and can give me some help because I really don't have any idea where to search for...

Greetz, Lars

Looks like Mac OS or driver problem. I had similar problems with windows 2000 and orinoco gold card.

Hi there!
First of all, thank you for this great firmware !
I've been using the custom firmwares for a while now and every time there is a new version, the wan connection seemd to be more more stable, but sice xxxx-5a I have to reset my router every 2 weeks. And in the last 48 hours, I had to reset it twice. Here is the logfile:
