Used firmware WL500gp-188.8.131.52-7g.trx from Oleg
In the forum wl500g.info is information available for the installation.
I used the first time installation HowTo part 1 and 2 from Marcnesium.
Remark for this HowTo
If you use a large disk, like me, the mke2fs command needs a lot of memory. Enable swap after you made it, so:
$ mkswap /dev/discs/disc0/part1 $ swapon /dev/discs/disc0/part1
I also made a /etc/fstab file, instead :
/dev/discs/disc0/part1 /opt ext3 defaults 1 1 /dev/discs/disc0/part2 swap swap defaults 0 0
More documentation can be found at Mascat.com Another install Howto with samba & Transmission
In general you have to keep in mind that when something is configured in /etc in then flashed with:
$ flashfs save && flashfs commit && flashfs enable && reboot
I found also a HowTo for the first time here.
OptWare ipkg’s To install OptWare ipkg on Oleg’s firmware:
$ wget http://pastebin.ca/raw/410559 -O - tr -d 'r' > /tmp/optware-install.sh $ sh /tmp/optware-install.sh
Accessing the samba drive from Vista I had an error message in Windows Vista when i was browsing in my to the Asus share. The message was: “A remote procedure call (RPC) protocol error occurred”. I solved it by using “Map Network Drive” in Vista and putted there the full path: //MyAsus/nas
Add to the file /opt/etc/profile:
