Thread: WL-500g Premium

  1. #31
    Is there any way to backup the original firmware on the Premium?
    Since new version does not have Tx power control, I'm not sure if the Tx signal will be sufficient in my setup. Because I was barely able to recive in some "distant" corners of my house with old firmware on maximum 12mW setting, and if this one is worse...

    Venom how do you set TxPower manualy?

    Deluxe or premium?

    Hello!
    I would like to buy one of the two routers, the WL-500 Deluxe of WL-500 Premium.
    I don't know which one to choose. The Deluxe seems to have more options regarding custom firmware. But the Premium is faster.
    What it want from this router is to setup a http and ftp server available from the WAN and LAN. I would also like to connect an external hard drive and store music and other files and make them available from the LAN. Of course, internet acces is also required. The premium has the download function, which seems nice, but i can live without it.
    I am not really familiar with all the procedures and requirements in order to achieve what i said i need above.
    Price is about the same, but the Deluxe is quite harder to be found around here in shops/online stores.


    Can anyone help me and explain why I would need one instead of the other?

    Thank you very much!!

    I haven't got the Premium yet, but the following method works on a WL300g:

    Use the hidden admin page at http://192.168.1.1/Main_AdmStatus_Content.asp to run this command:

    dd if=/dev/mtd/1ro of=/var/tmp/display.jpg

    Then just download the firmware from http://192.168.1.1/display.jpg

    This works because there is a dangling symlink from /www/display.jpg to /var/tmp/display.jpg, maybe intended for the webcam application?

    You might want to check this with ls before issuing the dd command...

    Two additional notes:
    - The http server can't be trusted. I had to make several attempts to get the complete image.
    - The downloaded image will end with a lot of "ff" data, caused by the empty flash area at the end (before the nvram partition). This is not part of the image and should probably be deleted before reflashing

    No guarantees whatsoever

    Well, consider it's alpha quality... But it seems to be working. Just wait for -pre2, I would fix minor things.

    Hi @ all,

    So you can reach much more folks, which can test it.

    best regards
    Yes, but wait for pre2. pre1 was a bit dangerous to use.
    I think, so we should wait a little bit

    Please note, that it does not have a download machine, but it has "Output Power" setting.

  12. About the oleg firmware.

    Im have just bought the 500gp, and have no exprerience with asus and there routers. I have now tried the web based control manager for the device. And generally it sucks. I can't set permissions / user right for shared usb harddisks

    If i install the oleg firmware. Is this the precise same GUI like the standard supplied software from asus? (except the modifications from oleg)

    Can I install all the wl-500 ikgp packages in this firmware?
    Does it have telnet?

    Yes, you can. It's the same as wl500g deluxe firmware.

    Hi, first of all, I'm new here

    haven't tried the oleg firmware yet, but I was wondering

    A friend of mine is using SSH/Telnet over the internet to tell his server to send the magic packet to the desired pc, so that that pc will turn on with Wake on lan (WOL)

    is it possible to implement such thing in the router?
    and make him remember one pc's mac to turn it on after hours or days with WOL?

    thank you
