    Smile New Firmware from Asus - Audio Streaming and Traffic Shaping

    This is a press release from today, on http://www.asus.com/news/2004/20041207.htm


    Taipei, Taiwan, Dec 7 2004 – ASUSTeK Computer Inc. (ASUS), a leading provider of high-performance wireless solutions, today introduced firmware upgrades of the WL -500g wireless USB router for three new exciting features! As multimedia data transmission such as voice, video, interactive gaming and P2P download grow in popularity, and more personal information is being shared wirelessly, the need for bandwidth prioritization and data secured privacy in the cyber world has become critical. The WL -500g now provides the latest technology including, bandwidth management, WMM support and WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access) to enhance the data sharing experience and provides solutions to security concerns.
    Bandwidth Management - This function allows easy management of the selected applications (ports) or IP addresses in the network to prioritize bandwidth and optimize network resources. Internet connection will not slow down even when someone in the network is carrying out P2P download.
    WMM (Wi-Fi Multimedia) - This special feature controls bandwidth between the head-end (Access Point) and the client-end (computer), and users the option to decide if this feature should be enabled. Applications are sorted into four categories to which the amount of bandwidth is allocated accordingly. Users can now choose to prioritize programs and applications to ensure smooth operation as well as effective usage of resources.
    The WL -500g has a unique USB Plug-n'-share function, which allows wireless sharing of webcam images, hard disk data and printing functions. Also, via the WL -500g 's USB port, users can share and play music files wirelessly on Windows Media Player without any other software configurations. Music sharing has never been this easy before!

    Armed with WPA2, which is based on the IEEE 802.11i standard, the WL -500g ensures all data is private and access to the network is restricted to authorized users only. WPA2 provides more advanced encryption mechanism compared with WPA through the government and corporate grade security protection system, AES. Just download the new firmware from the ASUS website and enjoy this security upgrade.
    However, I could not find the firmware update in the download section

    find mirror here in case they would decide to take it offline, but they have changed specs for WL500g as well

    according to asus it seems it is also (going to) support WPA2

    The new Plug 'n' Speaker is a funny feature. This should make it easy to create a standalone mp3 station if you connect a HDD as well.

    I have now installed this firmware and has begun testing the bandwith management. I try to make my VoIP get priority. It seems that when i am using up my bandwith with bittorrent and i make a call, the bandwith management kicks in on the download side, but nothing seems to happen with the upload. I am not sure it is even working with upload speed.

  14. Why they decrease the power, somebody know the new tx power ?

    Unhappy Speakers

    Hi, is there anyone who get it work (speakers via usb)?

    I installed asus plugin into media player and connect usb audio card (Sonica).
    In Settings menu I can see "Device not found".

    Is there any other additional settings in WL-500g or somewhere else?
    Or try to guess what could be wrong.

    Thank you!
