    Mitsubishi R100 Wireless Gateway

    as topic says..

    this seems to be the same unit as the wl500g, the only difference seems to be the Blue leds it is using, and 3 years instead of 2 years warranty

    this is the original message from someone who notified me by mail:

    Mitsubishi electric in australia appears to be selling an identical unit to
    the ASUS WL-500g
    It is called the r100. It looks exactly the same, but has Blue leds and
    mitsubishi logos
    The specs appear to be the same.
    the usermanual has all the same options.
    their current firmware release is 1.8.2.0 vs the asus 1.8.1.9
    but I have no idea what has changed other than the menus

    goto www.mitsubishielectric.com.au

    select computerperihperals and work your way from there


    find their firmware here:
    http://www.mitsubishielectric.com.au...1.8.2.0_EN.exe

    find more details here:

    and find their pdf sheet here:

    you can just flash it, it will work..
    perhaps you have to use firmware recovery for it

    Help with flashing an R100 / WL500G

    Antiloop,
    I have one of these R100's and everybody says they are idential to the Asus WL500g. My problem is that I cannot flash the BIOS to anything but the official BIOS from Mitsubishi Australia's website.
    This is what I have tried:
    a) flashing from the web interface (just says "Bad BIOS") using the original file name ie WL500g-1.9.2.7-7b.trx
    b) I tried renaming this file to something similar to the Mitsubishi file in case they put in a check on the file name to see if it was one of theirs (again "Bad BIOS")
    c) I tried the "Firmware Restoration Utility (both the one from ASUS and the one from Mitsubishi) and both fail because they can't find the R100/WL500g in a failed state.

    Any other ideas on how I can flash this box? Is there another utility that I can use to flash it other than the web interface?

    Any help is very much appreciated...(I have spent hours trying to get this right )

    Thanks

    I've upgraded an R100 successfully.

    You need to use the "Fireware Restoration Tool" supplied on the CD with the R100.
    Put the R100 into firmware recovery mode by:
    Removing the power connector
    Holding the reset switch in and plugging in the power connector
    Release the reset switch when the power light starts flashing

    Then use the restoration tool to upload the firmware of your choice.

    I've got two of them. Got them on sale - really cheap. Unfortunately, the LEDs aren't blue. They're yellow. At least on my two. They are in the picture on the box, however.

    As for the firmware:

    Here's how I got openwrt on it.

    I used Mac OS X, but you should be able to follow the same instructions on Linux.

    Get the file named openwrt-brcm-2.4-squashfs.trx - this is the trx file for writing to the flash.

    Plug the computer and the R100 together with a LAN cable, in the LAN of the R100.

    Ensure you can ping the R100.

    Then run sudo arp -s 192.168.1.1 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx (replace xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx with the MAC address of your unit as on the sticker on the bottom).

    Ensure you can ping it again.

    Then pull the power plug, and reinsert it holding the button on the back.

    When the power light starts flashing slowly, release the button.

    Run:

    tftp 192.168.1.1
    tftp>binary
    tftp>trace
    tftp>get ASUSSPACELINKaaaa /dev/null
    (this should start, but timeout, we do this to check whether the connection is working)
    tftp>put openwrt-brcm-2.4-squashfs.trx ASUSSPACELINKaaaa

    Wait for the transfer to complete, and it's done...

    sudo arp -a -d (clear the ARP table, remove that static arp entry...)
