    the darn thing is sooo slow, you can better buy a wl-hdd at this moment if you want fast hdd access

    do You mean slow compared to WL-500G or to USB 2.0 speed ?

    Thanks!

    I've got my hands on one today. 200MHz and 32MB of RAM OK.
    I've measured the USB2.0 HDD throughput directly on the device and it reached about 5.5MB/s, which is much better than 0.9MB/s on the 'g' unit, but still falls short of 15MB/s with the same HDD box on a PC.
    Anyway, I wasn't able to squeeze more than 1.1MB/s out of it through the stupid-ftpd and only about 950KB/s over samba, both results wired.
    When wireless (.11g), samba was at about 650KB/s, but this time smbd took only about 40% of CPU (wired, it took >70% CPU).

    It seems to me that the bottleneck is mostly in the ethernet driver (I'll try it more later, with disabled bridge, if that makes a difference).

    I was unable to run epi_ttcp for some mysterious reason...

    I've also tried attaching USB2.0 DVB receiver, but I spotted some ehci BUG(ehci_mem:129), so I'm going to investigate it more.

    Is the original asus binary et.o driver the same as the netgear source one?

    Yes, this makes difference. Disabling bridge (or binding to eth0 directly) improves speed for about 10%.

    New Version?

    While visiting CeBIT I've run into ASUS' booth and I've found this weird things (see picture):
    1. Why is the CD labelled g/gx?
    2. What is the WL-500g2R?

    Hi

    I think the G/GX just means the devices are so similar that they share some advertising/dokumentation material, no new device.
    Btw, what has the gx what the g has not, other than more cpu power and 2.0 USB ?

    But the other device is interresting, indeet.

    Talking Onboard Jumpers

    Hi,

    Looking at that picture it looks like there are 2 extra USB ports available and 2 serial ports as well as a number of GPIO pins.

    This looks very interesting!

    Well looks Like I'm getting an Asus instead of the linksys.

    @linuxinside, would it be possible to post a picture of a close up of the areas with the jumpers/pin headers?

    Phil.

    P.s. Apologies if this is already known, just got here after reading the article at Linuxdevices.

    they are available, but have not been made available yet

    please have a look in this (temporary) directory at http://www.chupa.nl/wl500gx/wl500g%20deluxe/

    Howdy Antiloop.

    Looks like on J5 you have 2 serial ports coming out on that header.
    WARNING: they look like they at TTL levels so they can't be plugged in to a serail port on a PC directly.

    There might be a system console on the first serial port which might be useful for debugging.

    There is also a reset signal on that header which might be useful.
    The is a 3.3v supply and ground so a level converter PCB could be made for that jumper, and the power could be drawn from the main PCB.

    The second set of headers: J1 (I think, hey, I can't count either ) look to be standard USB port headers. The only thing is that they do not have a +5v supply for the usb connectors. For that we might be able to draw the voltage from the +5v supply on the built in USB ports.

    Now all I need is for some place in Ireland to start selling one of these

    Getting any product info off the Broadcom website for the processor is difficult as well.

    Thumbs up GX vs. G

    The GX has (a) 2 USB 2.0 ports vs. 1 USB 1.1 port on the -G version, big improvement if you're planning on using USB-attached hard drives and (b) has the "afterburner" wireless enhancement so potentially you can get 100+ Mb/s throughput if your client adapters support it

    Yeah well, "potentially" is even a big word when we're talking about wireless performance....
