    Note that this firmware will not work correctly with Telstra Bigpond. I truly wonder where these router manufacturers get their information from about the Bigpond heartbeat, because it is at least six months out of date (and hence will not work).

    I confirmed this by two means:

    1/ Running the firmware - complete failure to connect.
    2/ Examining the source code - they are still referencing the "<state>-remote.bigpond.net.au" heartbeat server addresses, which haven't worked since sometime around the start of this year.

    I will work with Oleg to get a customized version of this firmware which has working Heartbeat support.

    virtual server cannot assign port range

    it seems that after upgrade with the v1.8.1.7, the port range in the virtual server cannot be assigned. Only a single port is able to be assigned.
    Whenever I set the range as 6881:6999, it only enter the port with 6999.
    Also, when I use Bit torrent, the wan connection drop out after about a few minutes. Please help.

    Well if an older firmware does the trick for you, why upgrading? Perhaps this problem will be addressed in the future. In the mean time go back to 1.7.5.9 CR3, or try to find and fix the problem yourself.

    actually, the old firmware can't help solving the problem.
    I have search the old post that the wan connection dying always exist while
    using bit torrent.
    I wonder if someone can help to setup code to solve this problem (maybe a list of reboot code can help) but i don't how to set and where to set.
    Please give suggestion.

    Wireless Firewall missing

    Like already mentioned in one of the BETA firmware threads, the "wireless firewall" menu in the webinterface is missing. When I looked at the html code of the menu, the "wireless firewall" menu was commented out

    The following direct URLs seem to work, but I do not know if the wireless firewall will function properly (because I do not have a wifi card to test with yet )

    http://yourWL500gIp/Advanced_DMZIP_Content.asp
    http://yourWL500gIp/Advanced_DMZDHCP_Content.asp
    http://yourWL500gIp/Advanced_DMZDWFilter_Content.asp
    http://yourWL500gIp/Advanced_DMZDLFilter_Content.asp

    Probably the lan and wifi interfaces are combined in this new firmware...
    I already emailed asus support.
    I'll keep you posted!

    refer to this thread: https://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=571

    I ask everyone to NOT discuss anything related to dead WAN ports inhere!

    also read very clearly this line from the changelog:
    2. Add: Connect/Disconnect for PPPoE/PPTP/Static/BigPond Connection Type, For WAN die issue, allow pressing "Connect" manaully to reset WAN phy
    and to tell you, I am certainly NOT HAPPY with this solution from Asus
    to say this is NOT a solution but a bad workaround

    As some options within the wg01070506_WL500g firmware did not do what I expected, (or I did it the wrong way, maybe for another part of the forum....) I upgraded to 1.8.1.7 and afterwards did the reset as advised.
    Although I could configure the wl500g through a hard conne connection on 192.168.1.1 and rebooted several time, the RF did not come up in the air...
    The air-led did not burn continously but started and then after some second restarted as the HF-hardware kept on restarting but never really was turned on.
    So the tools could not detect a signal of course..
    At the end I downgraded to wg01070506 and I am thinking about what might be the cause. The settings have been added by hand after the flashing as uploading the old settings seemed not possible (as has been advised).
    Suggestions welcome.

    edit: for the rest the combi wl500g/100g and the wg01070506 firmware is quite stable. It worked out of the box and tests with mns voice/file ok, for some small options I upted it from the v1.6 firmware.
    My wl500g is a 43I (or 1?)G-series with mac 000E......

    I have the same problem, no WLAN anymore, it now just fuctions like a normal router with cables... That's not the reason why I bought this router :P So let's get back to 1.7.5.9-4 that one rules...

    WPA-PSK/WEP + TKIP/AES at the same time????

    12. Add: WPA-PSK/WEP at the same time
    13. Add: TKIP/AES at the same time(WL500g/WL500gx only)
    __________________________________________________

    Of all possible combinations i could only get working:
    WPA-PSK/AES only
    WPA-PSK/TKIP only
    WEP/WEP-128bits only
    WPA-PSK/TKIP + WEP/WEP-128bits together at the same time.

    Has anyone else tried this?

    So TKIP/AES and
    AES/WEP-128 as well as
    TKIP/AES/WEP-128 does NOT work at the same time in my environment.
    Regards.
