    Duuuuuude! You absolutely ROCK! THANK YOU!

    Any updates planned for the BatBox package? New features? I would like my router to make coffee every morning :)

    Seriuosly, though... do you have a time table for the implementation of the UPnP control page on the web interface and/or the fix for KLOGD so it can be used continuosly with WallWatcher?

    And talking about BatBox, could you put up a command and config reference guide for us non-Linux people?

    Tanks and Jeeps!

    That is possible :p Serial port, soldering a few wires to your coffee machine (or why not wireless :twisted: ) and a coffee select menu :wink:

    Syslogd/klogd will be fixed in the next beta.

    Linksys is working on UPnP Forwarding Table, should be in one of their next releases (I hope) :)
    It's possible to load batbox in 2.0b2, but I'm going to look for a better sollution.

    WRT54GS 1.1

    Hi

    Do I need different firmware for my WRT54GS 1.1 ?

    If you download the official 3.17.4 firmware from Linksys site, there is two versions,
    one for 1.0, and one for 1.1.


    Thanks in advance,
    Batnun

    Re: WRT54GS 1.1

    HyperWRT 2.0b2 should work on a WRT54GS v1.1 (as it's based on linksys 3.17.4) The different pages on Linksys site will link to same firmware.

    Could you PM me the output of the page http://192.168.1.1/SysInfo.htm

    Thanks

    WERT54GS 1.1

    Thanks for the fast reply !

    I'm supposed to get my new 1.1 next week.

    Right now I'm still with WRT54GS 1.0, and your firmware works great !
    (MUCH faster then Sveasoft latest version, Alchemy-6.0rc1).

    The rumors says that 1.1 have better radio chipset, do you think it is true ?


    Thanks again, and keep up the good work !

    ahm Batnun,
    as far as i know there only exists ONE wrt54GS at the moment.
    never heard about a v1.1.
    my GS has a CGNxxxxx serial number, how can i see the diference of the v1.0 to the v1.1?
    mine is three days old freshly bought.

    WRT54GS v1.0 should say something like hardware version : v2.0
     
  13. bakajikara

    bakajikara Network Guru Member

    @Avenger20

    got it!

    mine shows the v2.0 in SysInfo.

    so ok, i have the 'old' hardware revision. what's the magic difference between v1.0 and v1.1?

    ....just thought i have bought the latest revision just to learn inside here that another one is beeing sold ........:)

    WRT54GS 1.1

    Bakajikara,

    Go to Linksys official site, try to download the official firmware:

    There is different links for WERT54GS 1.0 and 1.1...

    Although they link to the same file, seems to me that there is version 1.1.

    @batnun

    hmmmm, sounds quite interesting.

    where did you get your info about the 'better radio chipset' from?

    huri2khan Guest

    Hi!

    Same here - the Router is only few days old and with Hardwareversion 2.0

    But would be really interesting if there is really such a 1.1
    Anyways - actually I m on official firmeware - just to check what differences it makes if I change later to this one.

    Thx
    Cya
     
  17. bakajikara

    bakajikara Network Guru Member

    hummmm, nothin new about the new v1.1 revision of the GS?
    and indeed, at the linksys US site exists two different links for the v1.0 and a v1.1 thus pointing to the same firmware but that should be ok.

    so, spread your news please!

    I'm working a few days on 2.0b3 now :)

    Already did this :
    - Added more Access Restrictions (20 instead of 10) & blocked services fields.
    - A manual field for Transmit Power (for people that don't like the %)

    ToDo :
    - fix parental control if possible
    - fix klogd/syslogd
    - telnet?

    HyperWRT 2.0b3

    Hi

    Is this release will be based on the new 3.37.2 firmware (for the GS) ?


    Thanks,
    Batnun
     
  20. Avenger20

    Avenger20 Network Guru Member

    Re: HyperWRT 2.0b3

    Thanks, I didn't know it was out.

    Yes, will use 3.37.2 for WRT54GS
     
  21. batnun

    batnun Network Guru Member

    That was quick...

    Great !

    I`m sure it doesn`t contain any major fix.
    Maybe it will save you fixing some Linksys bugs...


    Thanks,
    Batnun

    chris-at Network Guru Member

    Avenger,
    could you check if access-restrictions get translated to iptables correctly with this new firmware?
    At least in HyperWRT 1.4 (Linksys 2.04.4) Linksys adds an "accept any any" to each created policy. So if you setup 2 Policys with 2 port-ranges each for the same ip-range, only the first rule would match because of the "accept any any" and the second rule never filters anything for you...

    Try it this way: create one policy with blocked ports and submit the following statement: usr/sbin/iptables -L advgrp_1 -v

    (advgrp_1 stands for policy1, _2 for policy2, ...)

    In hyperwrt 1.4 it looks this way:

    Chain advgrp_1 (14 references)
    pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination
    0 0 DROP tcp -- any any anywhere anywhere tcp dpts:120:442
    0 0 DROP udp -- any any anywhere anywhere udp dpts:120:442
    0 0 DROP tcp -- any any anywhere anywhere tcp dpts:snpp:65535
    1122 132K ACCEPT all -- any any anywhere anywhere

    and this last accept causes the router not to look into the other policies because it's a match in any case...

    So because I wanted more than just 2 ranges to block I did it manually using the firewall-tab to clear up the advgrp_1 and created iptable-entries manually there.

    Hope you understand what I wanted to tell you.

    I think Linksys fixed this one in 3.xx.x, but I'm not 100% sure.
    Let me know if it's still broke (then I can fix it).

    fatoil Network Guru Member

    Avenger,
    Will you add 'reboot' button back to this version of firmware?
     
  25. Avenger20

    Avenger20 Network Guru Member

    Yup, almost forgot that one, thanks :)
     
  26. chris-at

    chris-at Network Guru Member

    Avenger, would you be so kind and get a quick look at this?
    Because if I start updating and playing around with the router my collegues wouldn't be amused about the breakdown :(

    Or maybe someone else could check this thing?

    chris
     
  27. Avenger20

    I'm going to take a look tomorrow as I want to do some testing anyway.

    Telnet would be great!

    Keep up the good work!
     
  29. Avenger20

    Avenger20 Network Guru Member

    Got telnet working :) Just a simple and small one without a password.
    It will be much easier now to do some low level changes to nvram and debugging.

    That's great!! :D

    dadaniel Network Guru Member

    ??? Security-leak ??? :?
     
  32. Avenger20

    Avenger20 Network Guru Member

    No, you will have to enable telnet manually (in the web interface) each time you want to use it. It's just there to make it easier to do some advanced configuration and debugging, not for remote access (you shoudn't even use a password protected telnet for that)!
     
  33. Avenger20

    Avenger20 Network Guru Member

    Bug is NOT fixed. Will see if I can fix it.
     
  34. chris-at

    chris-at Network Guru Member

    I almost thought about it. Don't even know why they did it like that because there's the global accept in the accurate forward-table right after the subcall to these access-restrictions.
    Everything needed to do to get it working is to remove the accept-statement inside the called restrictions from the "policy-compiler".

    The next thing - but not essential - is that policy 10 is called at the second line right between 1 and 2 after creation because of the numbering scheme.
    They should use 01, 02, ... instead to get the right sequence. Just a flaw.

    Avenger, you're doing a great job btw!

    I tried to submit this bug to Linksys, but I got some pre-typed answer instead. :? Looks like I have to do it myself :p
     
  36. Avenger20

    Avenger20 Network Guru Member

    Fixed the bug :D

    I also tried to tell this bug to Linksys earlier but never got an answer...

    Excellent, great job! :D Thanks alot!

    Will you be using the NEW GS Firmware Version : 3.37.2 released 11-10-04 for your 2.0b3?
     
  41. Avenger20

    Avenger20 Network Guru Member

    Idd :)
     
  42. CameraAssistant

    So you should actually call the new GS version: 3.0b1 :D

    WRT54GS

    I just went out and bought a WRT54GS.

    Reading through this post. I found the sysinfo confusing after reading others posts.


    My hardware version is: 2.0

    Does that makes any difference, is this version older?


    Also could I use HyperWRT firmware with this hardware version. 2.0


    Also I would like to thank Avenger for all his work.

    Thank you.

    Re: WRT54GS

    Mine arrived from amazon.com on Monday.

    SysInfo reports "Hardware Version:2.0" on mine, too, which apparently corresponds to the older v1.0 hardware(?) Serial# starts with CGN10. Hopefully any v1.1 diffs aren't significant enough to make me want one. ;)

    I updated firmware to Linksys v3.37.2 (which is working fine so far, with WPA-TKIP enabled) and am considering to try HyperWRT once the version based on that is released. The Sveasoft fiasco is enough to make me want to stay clear of that firmware although its logging support would be useful and HyperWRT doesn't appear to have enhanced that (yet).

    [edit: Just noticed a thread re: HyperWRT and WallWatcher which indicates HyperWRT can run klogd... cool!]

    anything new about the WRT54GS v1.0 and v1.1?
    emailed linksys a bunch of days ago and asked about the difference ....but no answer yet:(
