    anyone wishing to give my SL Hyperwrt port a test drive can get it here
    I've included a usb print server and tested it using my epson cx3200. Normal printing works fine, but mine is an all-in-one and bidirectional printing isn't working on my printer, but it is supposed to work for some. All other changes are in line with Thibor 14 with the exception of DDNS, i haven't got around to adding them yet; but i will do. All feedback is welcome.

    Congrats on the release Thibor. Wish I could try it. Gotta save my pennies and pick one up.

    Hubs?

    Out of curiousity, are USB hubs supported on this sucker?

    (i.e. if I tried to hook up more than one USB device via a hub, would it have a chance of working)

    i have a WRTSL54GS running Hyperwrt_SL_Thibor14

    I installed Hyperwrt_SL_Thibor14(WRTSL54GS) this morning, and things seem to be working fine so far, but I haven't pushed it hard. I previously had HyperWRT tofu 13c on there.

    If there's anything I can do to help out, let me know; I have budding-EE-level hardware and coding skills, a decent soldering iron, and occasional bouts of free time, as well.

    greetings,

    anythoughts on how this router compares with the nslu2, just concerned with network storage and usb support

    I'd *LOVE* to see some hardware hacking on this!

    A *DUMMIES* guide to serial port addition. I know it's at JP3 and JP4 but as a rank amateur I could use some photos and a walk-through before I attempt my own.

    One of my larger complaints is no clock. Hence why I have been thinking about adding a serial port. Room enough in the box for a SirfIII GPS module to hang on the serial port, then I get a clock and location info all in one. Run GPSd to serve out the data to client laptop or other system in a vehicle.

    According to a poster on DSLreports.com, probably there is a JTAG present. Markings in 2 places on back side of board, but may be scattered around in a "bed of nails" fixture pattern.

    Also LED10 unused, could be used for 1-Wire interface?

    Some inspiration here:

    Thibor, Do you have (or know how I can preserve) the original 2.00.1 firmware on the SL, before trying out your firmware?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Thibor,

    Okay, thanks anyway. I suppose I can try to build it from the sources posted on linksys.com if needed.

    I'm using your new firmware. Seems to work just great. I did notice (and this is extremely minor, but thought you might want to know,) that the ssid field is populated with what I imagine to be your personal ssid after the flash and reset to defaults.

    All:

    I'm now trying to figure out how I can use the USB storage feature to make some files available over the internet. (I realize there are security issues here, I would just use it for temporary purposes, occasionally for convenience.) Although the default firmware is supposed to do this, I can't seem to find any way to set it up. Still searching. Anybody have any tips?

    Bob

    bob: it's not my ssid. usb file sharing over the internet is not working; either in the sources or in stock firmware

    Thibor,
    On my Status>>Wireless tab the Mode shows

    Mode : Mixed<% nvram_match("wl_net_mode", "b-only", "B-Only"); %>

    What's up with that?

    it's obviously a bloody bug i haven't noticed and squashed. it'll be rectified

    "a bloody bug..." :grin: I love it. I can hear your accent from here.

    No offence intended, man. You're doing great work

    I'm just now figureing out how to access a USB flashdrive on the SL from Fedora Core 5. It seems :

    mount -t cifs //192.168.1.1/flashdrive /mnt/jump

    works where flashdrive is the name of the share and /mnt/jump is my mount point. This is with my linux box wired to the lan side. I wonder if the same thing would work from the wan side if I used my IP address. I'll have to call my buddy and see if he can mount it.

    Latter, guy,

    Joe

    tbh mate, it's doubtful that it'll work from the WAN side. the firewall will block incoming requests for a start

    Thibor,

    I just noticed that 2.00.5 is up now on linksys site, but the source code download still shows 2.00.1. Which one are you based upon as of today's download of Thibor 14 for the SL?

    Bob
     
  22. Thibor

    Thibor Super Moderator Staff Member Member

    jesus christ, i can't change over at the flick of a switch fella; it'll take me a little while to do. it's based on 2.00.1

    Hmmmm... biggest problem with typing into a darn computer is that one can't see the facial expressions of the person that one is communicating with.

    I sure hope that I didn't offend. I appreciate (VERY MUCH) all that you have done. Perhaps I should have checked to see how long that new linksys version was up before I asked.

    (Waiting quietly and appreciatively, now,)
    Bob

    i've just checked linksys' site now, as i couldn't get on it earlier. the only WRTSl54GS sources listed are 2.00.1, so no, it won't be based on 2.00.5 as they don't seem to be there.
    P.S. i wasn't offended earlier

    Holy streaming batman!

    I just received an WRTSL54GS yesterday, flashed the Thibor software straight outta the box before it hit the network ;) and replaced a WRT54G v.4 running Hyperwrt+tofu 13c (on loan from a friend).

    My good god man, this thing screams! Noticeably faster page loading and I stream music (mostly oggs from a WD Netcenter NAS) via my wireless network to an AMD 64 3200+ laptop (Linux OS) with browser, email, music, jbidwatcher, and a couple other apps almost always open. Opening 10 pages at once in the browser does not cause a stutter in my music like I got with the WRT54G. :thumbup:

    In regards to the software version, it appears that RLJO saw the firmware update to 2.00.5, not the source.

    Main fix in Linksys 205 seems to be adding that FTP on WAN function. It's a cheap solution that lets them say it actually does what it says on the box. However I would not expose an FTP port to the script kiddies of the world!

    I haven't heard yet if the large-file-writes bug is fixed in Linksys 205. Anyone? Anyone? I have my SL here but not the USB drive.

    Thibor's v13d HyperWRT for the WRT54GS - v2??

    Thibor,

    Why have you given up on the WRT54GS v2 routers. I mean why doesn't your Thibor's v13d HyperWRT for the WRT54GS work for the - v2 router?? I am a big fan of yours great work and thank you for all your efforts.

    Worked fine on my version 2 wrt54gs. What makes you think 13d won't work on it? And, while you're at it, give version 14 a try.

    Just a few recommendations for the next 2.00.05 version.

    Remove RX Antenna / TX Antenna entries in Wireless Advance
    Recommended comment for WPA/WPA2 to use 20 or more characters in passkey

    quickie update:
    Porting to 2.00.5: done
    Iptables 1.3.5: done
    Layer-7 support: done, cli only
    dropbear fix for scp: done
    web page for antdiv: done
    pppoe service name: done
    it's looking pretty good so far, just have to see how performance and reliability go

    Wow, you work fast! Would scp allow secure access to files on the USB storage devices?
