Thread: ASUS WL-700gE custom firmware released - (1.0.4.2-1)

  1. #1

    Smile ASUS WL-700gE custom firmware released - now 1.0.4.2-1a

    Someone has to be the first!

    I would like to thank Oleg, BrainSlayer and all community who are working to improve these small but powerfull linux devil boxes and sharing expierence.

    With support from all this knowledge I'm releasing my first ASUS WL-700gE custom firmware. It can be downloaded from http://website.wl500g.info/beta/wiza...model=21&id=88 . Nothing much has been changed:
    1. Added password protected telnet access
    2. Added startup script

    Use at you own risk.

    If you get in trouble, follow these instructions: http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=5790

    Untill now I can confirm that his http://wl500g.info/showpost.php?p=37920&postcount=3 is true.

    Any comments are welcome.

    I hope that someone will make a tutorial on how to run wl500g applications

    according to this: http://wl500g.info/showpost.php?p=39799&postcount=20 packages should work.

    idea how to implement ipkg

    use this tutorial:

    http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Optware

    it configures /jffs as ipkg destination root, but it can also be a /shares/MYVOLUME1/MYSHARE1

    Hi MoD, just uploaded your firmware to my wl-700ge it works

    I can now telnet into it no problem. Just having some problems downloading packages compiled for mipsel - I don't appear to be able to create directories in the / filesystem, along with not being able to find the src program!

    Also, a question, if I can get the packages going (specifically after enhanced-ctorrent) and I disconnect from my telnet session, will the router carry on downloading the files in the torrent?

    Thanks

    Hmm, telnet stopped working for me

    I got in once, and since then it just gives me permission denied - definitely correct username and password...

    I even turned the router off and back on again - no luck from that

    Will this firmware update my 1.0.4.6n version?
    What exactly is a telnet password protection or a startup script
    Sorry for the nub questions

    You would flash a new firmware, so the answer is YES, IT WILL UPDATE YOUR FIRMWARE from 1.0.4.6n to 1.0.4.2-1.
    Note that you will have bugs that ASUS had in version 1.0.4.2

    The reason why I choose GPL 1.0.4.2 was that GPL_WL700gE_1042.zip has 602M of source code when GPL_WL700gE_1046.zip has only 391M. I'm not sure how much of source code is there. Definitelly there is no router startup code in directory rc.asus witch I needed to create changes that are in my release of firmware.

    I guess that it is possible to use latest GPL_WL700gE_1046.zip code and take the missing code from GPL_WL700gE_1042.zip, but I'm not sure how stable would be such a firmware. I'm expecting to get some feedback from my release to decide what to do next. If ASUS will not prowide new code, I would use this aproach in the future.

    What exactly is a telnet password protection or a startup script
    telnet password protection - there is a telnet daemon running. you can get access to the router shell by using telnet. It is protected with username and password. To get access to the shell, use the same username and password that you are using to get access to the router web interface.

    startup script - you can create and launch some commands when the router starts. it is something like autoexec.bat in Windows/DOS enviorment.

    Plz., read this http://www.e-mail.lv/wl700ge/

    Weird. On startup router writes password for telnet from nvram. So the credentials are the same as for web UI. Did you try not only to restart, but also to reset the router?

    / is read only. To create new directory, use startup script like this:

    #!/bin/sh
    mkdir /shares/MYVOLUME1/MYSHARE1/opt
    mount -o bind /shares/MYVOLUME1/MYSHARE1/opt /opt
    Also, a question, if I can get the packages going (specifically after enhanced-ctorrent) and I disconnect from my telnet session, will the router carry on downloading the files in the torrent?
    I guess so. You have to launch them as daemons. for example, to run htppd daemon, type:

    httpd &

    Exclamation

    I'm looking for some advice on how to enable all the wl500g packages to work on wl700g. I see that wl700g sources are compiled with GLIBC.

    The question is: If I'll chance configuration and compile the source with uClibc, will it help or I must do something more?

    I see that dd-wrt and Oleg's firmwares are compiled with uClibc.

    You do not need to change firmware from GLIBC to uclibc. Packages from http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/op.../cross/stable/ should run without a problem on your custom firmware. Just create /opt and mount disk there. Install uclibc and ipkg package and that's it.
    For more info see http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/FAQ/Optware-uClibcBuild

    I have that problem too...

    first time it work, then stop working untill know. hace traid to make a reboot but the situation is just the same.
    Its seem like the last telnet session is hanging... and don't logoff

    Maybe that is apenning because hi made the firmware upgrade and reboot the router with the telnet session open :/

    I have to check this issue but maybe it just takes some time to connect to the router.

    There was a message: http://wl500g.info/showpost.php?p=37920&postcount=3 saying that router sometimes has a trouble with response. It works. Just wait a little bit.

    Hmm, I don't think it's a timing issue - I waited for quite a while after logging on before trying again (12 hours) and the request for a login username is quite fast all the time. I am not at home right now - will try a router reset via the button on the back of it when I get home, but it looks like the telnet session is staying open or something...

    The problem is not the LAG
    If you upload the firmware again, you have the telnet working for one time. After you logout the telnet goes away for good.
