    USB Web Camera doesn't work anymore...

    I got the message: "could'nt connect to server".
    Never happends with previous fw versions up to 1.9.3.5!

    Grrrr... I know this is beta one but seems that new versions always lost things that worked well before

    The connection speed is really low using 1.9.3.X version firmware.
    I am using VDSL 10Mbps with PPPOE

    (It changed from 1.2MB/s [in 1.9.2.x ] to 400KB/s, however, 1.9.3.X is more stable. The connection seldom disconnects.)

    ASUS releases never have such things. This is not custom firmware.

    Unhappy Reset to factory settings will not work anymore

    After applying Firmware upgrade the reset function is not working anymore.
    Tried different things -> power off for an hour, pressing reset button 5 seconds and keeping pressed during power on, pressing button for about 1 minute etc. but nothing is succesfull. Power led will not burn anymore while LAN led is flashing. No connection is possible at the moment.

    Anyone an idea how to get the router in control again?

    you can try to connect pin10 from the flash (AMD) chip to ground while powering on, this should force the unit to go into firmware recovery mode so you can reflash firmware and start over

    I'll try this but as a newbie I've never done so before. Can you explain me where I can find the (flash) chip on the print after opening the device? and which pin is pin10?
    which ground can I use?-> outside surface of power connector?

    What happens if you, regardless of what the LEDs do, try to do the firmware restoration trick?
    What I mean is:
    - Bring the unit in restoration modem (power off, reset, power on while reset, hold reset for another 10 seconds, then release reset button).
    - Prepare pc for restoration (single ethernet interface enabled, fixed ip address).
    - Run restoration tool.

    Report results here please.

    USB printer does not work here either (HP DeskJet 940C). The USB port works for pen drives, though.

    Firmware versions & printer support & range problem

    Let's first say that I'm a newby, but I have read a lot of postings on the forum. Now my problem:

    I recently purchased the WL-500g with firmware version 1.8.1.9. I'm trying to connect my Canon ip3000 printer to the wl500, but without success. I know there are some posting regarding this item but they did not help. The printer wizard doesn't indicate any problem and the port automatically switches to a 'standard tcp/ip port', but when I want to print something, nothing happens. The protocol is RAW and the port number is 9100. Bidirectional communication on or off does not make any difference.

    The next step I want to do now is to upgrade the wl500g firmware. On the site of Asus a 1.9.3.6 beta version is available, with among others 'a range problem' solved. On this forum the latest version seems to be 1.9.2.7 CR4.
    Can I use this version or does it still have this range problem? Or do I have to wait for a final 1.9.3.6 version from Asus?

    (My Asus is installed on the second floor and the laptop is mostly used at the ground floor (couch!). The receiver quality now is 3 out of 5 on average, so I'm a little bit worried about this range problem.)

    System info:
    FW version: 1.8.1.9
    mode: access point
    security: WPA-PSK
    PC: Windows XP SP2
    printer: Canon PIXMA ip3000, with latest drivers

    Any help appreciated!

    Theo.
