New firmware is available here (http://files.wl500g.info/asus/wl500g/firmware/customized/1.7.5.9-3/wl500g-1.7.5.9-3.zip) . Rootfs is here (http://files.wl500g.info/asus/wl500g/firmware/customized/1.7.5.9-3/wl500g-1.7.5.9-3-root.tar.bz2). This is mostly security fix release. It's strongly recomended to update to this latest firmware for everyone who is using ssh. Sources & docs is available here (http://wl500g.dyndns.org/).


LPR protocol printing support added back (so, ASUS printing stuff co-exists with RAW)
Updated dnsmasq to 2.9
Updated dropbear to 0.43 (fix security bug found in dropbear ssh daemon).


Important thing in this firmware is that I've added ASUS printing stuff back, i.e. you can now choose what to use LPR printing (stock firmwares, slow, does not work with many USB printers) or RAW printing (custom firmware, fast, work for most USB printers, but sometimes does not work with LPT printers (unclear reason)). Personally I'm recommending using RAW printing, but if does not work for you, then try LPR with "LPRServer" as queue name and let me know if it works better.

if bandwidth control or QoS can be avalible for the each LAN port and MAC control is not only for the wireless, that will be much better. do they have the possibility to add to the firmware and use the web management as normal?

There is no QoS support in this firmware.

There is no QoS support in this firmware.

Will there be in the (nearby) future??

Oleg

Probably. I'm now hold waiting for 1.8.x.x sources. I believe they should be in good shape and allow easy kernel-user-space combining required for QoS compiling :)

Bigpond support for the <1% that use it please, I like your fireware but don't know enough how to add the bpalogin program to the package.

Thanks for your work, Oleg! :) BTW, what about the serial driver? :confused: It seems you did not put it back yet... :(

Technik, I had an impression, that you've recompiled everything yourself, so I've not included it...

Well, so far I recompiled only original kernel without patches (just played with kernel configuration to get some modules compiled) so it was quite easy...
:(

Well, I will prepare complete kernel patch for you and instructions for recompiling kernel. So, you will be able to compile firmware yourself. Ok?

How can i make transparent router without nat with this firmware? So sorry for my bad english :-)

Oleg

In the same way as with stock firmwares.

Check this (http://wl500g.dyndns.org/#recompiling). Let me know if you've any problems.
Also in the kernel config you will need to add something like console=/dev/ttyS0,115200 to the init string and enable serial options (see original kernel config for this, it's named defconfig-bcm947xx).

Actually I'm a little bit confused about the amount of the many different Firmware versions (1.7.5.x, 1.8.1.x, 9.8.1.2).

I use FW 1.7.5.6-3 (Oleg) and I need mainly: ADSL-WAN, DHCP-LAN, DHCP-WLAN, RAW-Printing, Virtual Server List

I'm wondering if and when what Firmware is suggested to update to?. I guess 1.7.5.9 CR3 [Oleg].

Maybe also someone can give me suggestions about this my problem Bug in 1.7.5.6-3: NAT Setting - Virtual Server List (Del)? (http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=412)

the New firmware seems not stable enough. if i use the Bittorrent to download, the router seems restarting with the IE using. when i tried to connect router using IP address, management webpages always can't come out . at that moment, restarting began, the terrible thing--it loops. i have to power off the router and cable modem, then restart , let them back to normal.

is this happening too when using firmware 1.8.1.3 ?

Bigpond support for the <1% that use it please, I like your fireware but don't know enough how to add the bpalogin program to the package.

The other person in that <1% (me) has added it. Send me a Private Message if you are interested. Oleg, if you want to add it to the distribution (I've put it into your build system correctly, and all it requires is the bpalogin binary and an /init/rc.bpalogin script), then send me a Private Message.

See http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=717 for a patch which corrects the Australian timezones.

[The problems exists in the standard firmware too, can anyone forward the patch onto Asus?]

Rod, check your mail. Your patches will be accepted. Right now I'm reinstalling everything on my laptop after the harddisk crash and replacement.
