    New oleg firmware version

    It's been almost a year since Oleg publish last version of his firmware. Since then, much has changed. There are several things that must be done. Among other things layer7 support, better QoS (preferably integrated with the web interface), a newer kernel (the last of the 2.4 line), better ipv6 support, some bugfixes, etc.

    I know that some may say if you want that features write it yourself or use OpenWRT.
    I do not have experience with that and i do not want change firmware because i like it.

    Oleg is opensource maybe somebody know somebody who wants become this firmware developer?

    best regards

    Nobody can replace Oleg

    But some tasks can be done without Oleg. If you can read russian (even with automatic translator), you can visit thread http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=17136

    Short version is ready on http://code.google.com/p/wl500g/wiki/NEWS
    Long Changelog.txt exist in russian only.
    Is it stable?
    I prefer to call it 'Experimental', since I cannot provide support like Oleg. i.e. it stable for me, but has some untested places and bugs ( all sofware has bugs ).
    How can i help you?
    We needs an iptables guru to test this part of firmware. People, who can write detailed tutorials(FAQ) also welcome. And, of course, web interface is very old (as in Oleg firmware), but this requires skill in programming due to ASUS design of internal http server.

    Yeah, BTW, can anything be done about that server? Like replace it with something that can use another programming language?

    Although I don't exactly see what that alternative language could be, since all interpreted languages are resource hogs as far as the 500gP is concerned...

    What are the limitations of the internal http server?

    People wants to see new Web-UI, like is in latest ASUS firmwares. Since this UI uses non-standart calls in http server, migration of web-pages only, is impossible.

    Is it still needed to recompile firmware to make use of both serial ports of the asus wl500g deluxe with the new firmware? I only found a 5 year old thread about recompiling the kernel, but I have never recompiled a kernel before, so I would like to know if this is necessary, and how I should accomplish this.

    He is not one of developers --- he did it all! At the moment contributions of others are really small. On the other hand this firmware seems to be already pretty stable. Personally I run it already for more than a month, and I don't see any failures. However, additional testing is certainly pretty welcome.

    This new firmware itself, its sources, modules, and new toolchain are available here: http://wl500g.googlecode.com/ The firmware's sources are available there as svn-repository as well.

    Brief English changelog is here: http://code.google.com/p/wl500g/wiki/NEWS The full one is attached to the first message in the Russian thread.

    Good Job!!! I'll try it tomorrow.

    It looks very nice.

    I can write tutorials with screenshots for begginers. Maybe i try later write simple web interface something like asus (asp -> vbscript)

    The most important for me is QoS.
    Wshaper do not work best.
    I put torrent trafic in lowest class and no effect. (web pages load very slow)
    QoS in OpenWRT works perfect, may be a good idea to do the same here.

    Maybe you could try to do something with it?

    I would be very grateful

    best regards

    Ok i install it. And that is amazing.

    With oleg 1.9.2.7-10 if i do things what need a lot of cpu power. (compressing folders with tar) Router was crashing and internet connection was broken.

    I test it 16 hours and i think that firmware is better than oleg.

    I can surf the internet even something is compressing on the router. That is amazing.

    Currently, we have more urgent tasks to achieve stability & bugs removal. If someone send me patch to add this functionality and it will not so huge (we have a very limited space for 520gU, 500gx and other 4M flash routers), than we can include it into the mainstream.

    on dns-o-matic they say dd-wrt supports it, so maybe we can rip it from the sources and magicly put it in the oleg sources
    http://www.dnsomatic.com/wiki/dd-wrt
    but I have this weird feelin that olegs firmware also might be able to do this... since you can specify the server:
    DYNDNS Server: updates.dnsomatic.com
    I'm sure this must be a value somewhere in olges

    I already like the D release, so I can't wait till the full one, keep it up

    DD-WRT uses inadyn. Olegs firmware uses ez-ipupdate. Our firmware adds ability to use custom config /etc/ddns.conf (appendable with /usr/local/etc/ddns.conf). If someone confirm that ez-ipupdate works with dns-o-matic, we can add this parameters to predefined list in web-interface.

    yep. someone has to try it out

    EDIT: works for me with dyndns setted up at web interface and following /usr/local/etc/ddns.conf
    Code:
    service-type=dyndns
    server=updates.dnsomatic.com
    host=all.dnsomatic.com
