    known bugs please post them here

    Known bugs at this moment by me

    1. Webcam motion detection; seems to be defective, the router spammed about 160mb of mail to me of pictures which are 99% the same of every second

    2. Virtual Server; seems to have some problems don't had time to find out why.

    3. Spontanious reboot; don't know when this happens and why, router does it sometimes could be after a week

    4. tell me

    What type of problems do you have with your virtual server settings?

    My problem is this:

    On my LAN I have four computers:
    WinXP - wired
    Linux - wired
    Mac -wired
    WinXP - wireless

    I have a webserver on my linux computer, and if I try to access the webpage from any of my other computers using my DDNS name I always get the routers config screen.

    If I use my old router, a D-Link DI-604 I don't get this problem.

    I've contacted ASUS about this, but I still have to get an answer from them.

    Muad'Dib

    p.s. please change the colors ... light grey background + light orange text is a sure headache...

    Reply from Asus

    For webcam alert: I think it may because of the noisy signal from Web camera.

    We tested it and found that the quality of QuickCam Express 4000 is quick good for monitoring. And Philip's WebCam used on WL500g/b with some noisy frame and result in mis-judgment for mail alerting function. So please try another WEB cam to have test.
    with the QuickCam they mean the Logitech QuickCam

    appearantly i'm using a Philips Vesta Pro 680K cam, and don't have a Logitech forhands to confirm this.

    ps. they did not know i was using a Philips Webcam

    I have a logitech webcam, but it doesnt work. Its the QuickCam Express (the cheapest out there).

    I am not really interested in the webcam features, but in the FTP server.

    By the way, Tom's Hardware Guide (http://www.tomshardware.com/) spoke of the router in their Comdex Day 3 article, and they also reviewed the Hawking Hi-Gain Wireless USB adapter which looks exactly the same as the one from ASUS (who might the manufacturer be?).

    Nieuwe versie?

    On the website of asus there is a new version. Same version number but date is again different.

    Some already know it is a different one?

    Their CRC's are the same, so I assume they are the same. I might test it later today, if I find they're different I'll post here.

    Are the really different or is just the date different. I suspect the latter? every one I found has the same date inside the zip file and the same crc

    They had same size and same versionnumber, so I supposed it was just different dates nothing more. One can't be sure though

    I've decided not to test the new file as right now I am using the router as an AP and using it as a router means moving all my stuff around.

    But I'd have to sat that it having the same CRC and having the same "Improve WL-500g wireless router connection performance." note doesn't make it appealing.
