    It cannot be compiled "out of the box", you have to fix many warnings & minor errors... There is no FAQ and it cannot be written, because errors are sporadic and it is impossible to teach use of compiler & tools in one small document.

    I am currently having engineering look into this GPL for you. I will let you know when I hear back from them.

    Thank You,

    I see, I see. But the problem is not in warnings. The problem is in errors. If I do make from src it fails with errors. However, if I enter router folder and do make N16 it goes ok for several minutes untill again breaks with error ..

    Speaking about faq and docs ... I was able to compile the enthusiasts's firmware following the doc from their google code page from the first time

    lly said "minor erros", so I guess he's talking about those.

    lly is one of the main developers in fact

    why call it enthusiasts firmware? it's just oleg, but it's being "professionally" developed now with a public SVN and everything
    the old oleg fw was good, but in that form it could never grow as mutch as the new oleg fw.
    Obviously I'm not saying oleg did a bad job, thanks to him we have all this in the end

    btw, what heatsinks do you have?

  9. #339

    _

    The bigger one was removed from a Intel motherboard, 1cm more and i couldn't close the router , the other two were removed from a Netgear Dual Speed 24Port Gigabit Switch and the two memory heatsinks are from Coolermaster.

    I have applied "thermal adhesive tape" in all, the temperature is very low, 29~30є with router closed

    3G modems support now in development (in the first place for wl500-branch). Current version contains two branches of dial scripts - Koppel`s and our universal dial script.

    Redirect / open / forward ports will work presumptive because used common code for pppoe, ppptp connections, but really not tested.

    Try to use latest version at ftp://core.dumped.ru/rt-n/ with universal dial script.

    [Asus RT-N16] Which firmware? Is a swapdrive recommended?

    Hi,

    I have had a wl-500gp for a couple of years now with Oleg's firmware and has been happy with it. Now I have got hold of a Asus RT-N16 and I assume that I can expect some performance improvement compared to wl-500gp.

    Am I correct?

    I have mainly used it with transmission and as file-server on my LAN.

    What is the recommended firmware?

    I see that RT-N16 have 128 MB ram. Do you still recommend to setup a swapdrive?

    Yep, significantly faster.

    I have found the latest rt-n alpha firmwares have been mostly stable ftp://core.dumped.ru/rt-n/ (you can see whats changed here) and I have been updating mine every couple weeks. But always back up your settings before firmware upgrade, regardless.
    Tutorial on N16 firmware and optware config ... http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=23684

    Always try use swap-space, and best to keep it larger than physical memory. My N16's been up for 3 days and consumed no swap yet.

    My N16 is slowly increasing the usage of its memory. I have used wengis tutorial.

    When it has been rebooted it uses about 30mb, which increases over 1-2 hours to 120 mb and then 0,1 mb of the swap and nothing more.

    Transmission is running with two active torrents, but no download/upload

    This is a problem when you want to spin down the harddrive.

    Should I just do a swapoff?

    it's just cache and buffering
    I wouldn't recommend swapoff

    yet it's unusual that it increases that much.
    When you do some work at samba after a reboot you can see the usage increasing btw.
