    Geez, these mirrors are slow and tend to break connection when your halfway. Could someone please post a mirror?
    A packet wanting Minimal Montetary Cost, Maximum Reliability, Maximum Throughput AND Minimum Delay. I would call this a 'Dutch Packet'.

    This are quite enough mirrors
    Just use some download manager like Flashget, Jetget, wget, or something else which can restart broken transfers. I prefer Flashget, you can download simultanous from differend mirrors to speed up. Same will do wget under linux.

    Of course I could use a download manager, but when it takes an hour to download 5.5 megs of data, I'd look for more mirrors.

    After you tried the new Bios out, can someone tell me how much shortened the range is?

    Much more interesting is to see why it's shorter?

    I be waiting to test this release, because the range is important to me.

    Tried, but poor results. Did use 1.8.1.7-3 with much better results. BTW i'm using WPA-PSK and AES or AES/TKIP and not WPA.

    Well, checked 1.9.2.6 sources. WPA2 is really broken at the moment, so I'm expect, that it probably will not work with wds. 1.9.2.6-1 will have WPA2 stuff disabled, until ASUS release stable firmware. Look like they've started fixing it in the 1.9.2.7.

    WPA uses TKIP as it's standard encryption, with AES being optional. WPA2 uses AES as standard encryption. But there are more differences between WPA and WPA2. WPA2 tries to address some flaws in WPA. Have a look at www.tinypeap.com for information about WPA.
    The latest drivers from intel for their centrino 2200BG chip have support for WPA and WPA2. One can choose between WPA - Personal (or enterprise) and WPA2 - Personal (or enterprise). How do i know that WPA2 is functioning on a WL-500g?

    2nd WL-500G as client does not work

    Status showed connected to xxx but ping to routing host (1st WL-500G, with 1.9.2.7 firmware) gets no reply and no internet functions what-so-ever. Flash the client (the 2nd WL-500G) back to 1.8.2.4 everything works again. Tried a couple of times for both WDS and non-WDS modes, 1.9.2.7 never works but 1.8.2.4 always works (without even changing the settings).

    Also Bandwidth Management still does not work. Has anybody managed to get it working?

    The WDS funktion works with 1.9.2.7, and very good too.

    Using WPA-PSK with TKIP on both my Asus.
