First of all. The costum firmware from Kfurge works perfect. I have all i need.
The last days i tried to fix little things. It went ok. But i have one tiny problem.

I use irssi (irc) and lynx (browser) alot. When i use putty for windows, the screen get a size of 24x80 (rowXcolumn). Thats very small. In the settings from putty i can set the rows and colums to a number i want. The window is now bigger but irssi and lynx dont use more then 24x80.

I searched the web and could not find anything. It has something todo with termcap, vt100, xterm, resize command... etc.

So my question: is there anybody who could help me out with this problem.

Nobody knows?

I have similar problem. I use 'screen' and don't know, how to change number of lines. After trying to change it with command 'height 42' I get error message: 'Your termcap does not specify how to change the terminal's height to 42.' Does anybody know, how to change it?

Why telnet?
Use ssh and you do not have these problems.
ssh is working fine here.

I am beginner in Linux. I tried to install and configure dropbear (http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=7728) but it didn't work for me, with error message "Server refused our key". That is the reason, why I use telnet...

You do not need the linked key auth.
simply use the dropbear part of the howto in my signature.

Thank you, guys! It works. Problem was in user's password - it was blank. I had to create new user with password and ssh works well.

Sollie: Did you solve the problem in thread http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=9046&highlight=busybox_httpd? I have similar troubles and don't know find a solution.
