    I own a ASUS WL-550gE too. I know customize it maybe meaningless (because it don't have an USB Prot for extra storeage), but I still want to make SSH access possible, because I want to know more about my router. May I?

    WL-550gE SSH access

    Before you can use SSH, you need to generate 'keys'. These are used to encrypt the connection. To do so, telnet to your router. Log in as 'admin' with password 'admin'. Type the following to generate the keys:


    mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/dropbear
    dropbearkey -t dss -f /usr/local/etc/dropbear/dropbear_dss_host_key
    dropbearkey -t rsa -f /usr/local/etc/dropbear/dropbear_rsa_host_key
    mkdir -p /usr/local/sbin/
    echo "#!/bin/sh" >> /usr/local/sbin/post-boot
    chmod +x /usr/local/sbin/post-boot
    echo "dropbear" >> /usr/local/sbin/post-boot
    After this, the SSH daemon is running and you can connect to it with putty. Notice that we haven't saved these changes yet, so if you reboot your router now, you lose these settings. To save settings, do:


    flashfs save
    flashfs commit
    flashfs enable
