    As for WAN port dies problem. At first: this is HW bug, don't know why ASUS does not contacted Broadcom yet. So, I recommend everyone experiencing reboots or WAN port dies problem to exchange wl500g with wl500g deluxe, but keep in mind, that wl500g deluxe is not equiped with LPT port. Also, most likely wl500g v2 should appear (don't know the real name), which is based on hw similar to wl500g deluxe, so no wan port dies problem should happen with it.

    I was able to reproduce the problem (there're two possible states, which hw could enter, but this is really hard to detect). My unit never rebooted. It's extremely strange, that some of you are experiencing reboots. So, perhaps some of the units are really defective...

    ONCE AGAIN: replace defective wl500g units, which are rebooting with ASUS 1.8.2.4/1.9.x.x firmwares or 1.9.2.7-6a, but working fine with 1.8.1.7-3. This is perhaps a hw bug, which I'm unable to workaround.

    sorry, I have no HD inside the WLHDD at the moment, so I cant test if the file limit is gone..but something other is totally broken with this test version..no network browsing, no NFS...please take a look.

    thanks in advance,

    How did you test this without hdd? nfs/samba would not start without a storage device. what is network browsing?

    in the Windows Network I dont see other Windows/Samba/CIFS shares...I reinstalled the WLHDD-1.9.2.7-6a and everthing is ok. I'm sure there is something wrong....I fit a USB-Stick and CIFS/NFS works with the 'old' version.

    Wink Intermittant wireless connection

    Hello group. I got the wl-005g model ,2.4 board revision router this week,so I
    decided to flash it with v1.9.2.7 cr5a and everything appeared fine so I decided to flash with cr6a. I had disconnected leads and cables to enable a clean reboot prior to flashing, after it rebooted i noticed that the wireless connection was poor,dropping and intermittent. connection was reading good but speed was varying from 1 - 11 mb/s on a dell true mobile 1150 pc card
    I immediately suspected the firmware upgrade but only when i tried to adjust
    the antenna i noticed that this was effecting the connection. I squeezed the centre socket of the antennaes sma connector with a jewellers screwdriver and now the connection has been perfect since. What i really want to warn others is of a possible faulty antennae causing this type of fault and what a
    coincidence with this acting up when i done an update, must have effected
    it when i was removing the connections..I would also Just like to thank you for the great software..I`m a total linux novice and I`m really crawling through the tutorials. sorry for the long post but I hope that my problem may
    be of help to others..? regards Jelly

    BTW, does original ASUS firmware for the WL-HDD supports large files?
