I have added support for bpalogin (Australian Telstra BigPond Heartbeat client) to Oleg's latest custom firmware.

If anyone is interested in testing it, send me a Private Message.

Oleg, if you see this, and wish to incorporate it in your standard distribution, please send me a Private Message.

Hey,
Has anyone got the WL-500g working with Bigpond? If so can you please send me the firmware that works. I have tried 1.8.1.9, with no luck. This is a great router and I don't want to have to return it.
Cheers

Thanks guys for your help so far. I am up and running, but nearly everyday I loose my IP address and have to reconnect. I have installed firmware wl500g-1.8.1.7-2a but still does it.
Can anyone help?
Thanks
Darren

Yeah, I'm getting the same. Asus put the Linksys-style init stuff into 1.8, and that's not as good as the simple stuff I did for bpalogin in 1.7-oleg.

But I haven't had time to look into it (busy with www.nslu2-linux.org).

It will soon annoy me enough that I will either move back to 1.7, or fix it.

Rod,
I really want my 500g to be accessable permanently cause I have a USB stick in the back and I'm trying have my own little FTP sever using DDNS.
Is there a version of firmware I can use that you know does not drop the IP?
You said version 1.7 - which one would you suggest I try?
This is all a heartbeat issue, right?
Cheers
Darren

bpalogin is the heartbeat client.

Use this one: http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=746

It is rock solid. I'm probably going to flash back when the router looses my IP next.

Rod, have you identified the problem? Is it dhcp or bpalogin related?

Nope - but I do know that I end up with multiple bpalogin processes running, and the changes I made were nothing to do with actually starting the bpalogin process, just the config file.

So there is a basic problem with the Asus firmware.

I've personally gone back to 1.7.5.9-5 :-(

Sorry, but I don't have the spare bandwidth at the moment to debug this.

The only reason I was upgrading to 1.8 was because I wanted to put the latest dropbear on it which had client support. Since then, I have cross-compiled openssh for the NSLU2 - so my reason for messing with what was the most stable internet connection I'd had for a long time (with 1.7.5.9-5) went away. Hence, I've flashed 1.7.5.9-5 back onto my Asus.

I would advise anyone relying on their wl500g for a BigPond connection to use 1.7.5.9-5, until Asus fixes their 1.8 firmware.
