  1. #1

    WL-500g Premium

    I bought one of this routers, and tryed to find some infos about it, but i coudn't find any info about it part of few in russian. If i understand right it should have 32 Mb ram, but in meminfo it shows only 16 It same problem like deluxe , where the pmon need updated?
    I managed to backup the pmon and the firmware (1.9.6.2), so if anyone interested let me know. Maybe it runs on normal wl500g too ?

    I'm interested in pmon & firmware. Please send it to me or give me an URL.
    According to FCC pics it should have 32 MB of RAM.
    Have your tried measuring routing performance?

    ok, got it. the flash is 8 mb, that's nice. the cpu is seems to be running @ 264MHz...

    According to CFE values you've 32 MB of RAM enabled in one 256 Mbit DDR chip, which seems to be incorrect, as according to pics it has two 128 Mbit DDR chips... Perhaps that's why you're getting 16MB only.

    So, if you brave enough you could type these lines:
    Code:
    nvram set sdram_init=0x0009
    nvram set sdram_ncdl=0
    nvram commit
    reboot
    If this fails you will need to replace your router... I take no responsibility on this...

    Can you give me an advice?

    USB performance?

    Hi, Oleg closed this thread referring to the current one.
    This threads answers the question about the ram (good) but not about the USB performance.
    Searching this forum I see that the 500g has pretty bad usb performance, is this the case also for the 500g premium? Did anybody benchmark the disk performance?

    Guys, you should have received CD in the WL500gP box.
    This CD should have a firmware sources too.
    Could you please check firmware version and sources which are burned to it?

    Oleg, I have complained to the ASUS customer support regarding the non-working Download Master. This is their reply:

    (...) After our test, the problem exists, Please wait for some days, We will release the new firmware on the website. Sincerely apologize for the inconveniences caused. (...)
    It seems that new release is indeed around the corner as they have just released a new Traditional Chinese version yesterday:

    Wl500gx -> wl500g premium

    Mr Oleg,

    What are the chances of implementing new features of wl500g premium - download manager and uPNP server into a future release of your excellent custom firmware for ordinary wl500gx?

    I think it would make many people happy not to have to leave a noisy pc running all night, and it would save a few kWh of electricity!!!

    Now, I know this is sortof available through 3rd party applicaitons but for the less tech-savy among us it is beyond our knowledge getting them to work.

    Marko

    Oleg, I checked my CD and there seems to be no firmware supplied on it. As said, my Premium has version 1.9.6.2 installed, Asus has just recently released 1.9.6.8 in tradiotional chinese (o_O), I'm eagerly awaiting the English release because loads of bugs on this one.
