    i have spent quite a lot of time working on the 300N version 1 and trying to make it more stable and compatible with b/g networks. i've not had the best luck with it, and tonight i've well and truly bricked it. tftp and the pin shorting trick on the flash chip won't revive it this time(i've done it a number of times before) so it's looking like the flash is fried. i won't be replacing the router as i would just be wasting my time trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. 300N owners, i'm sorry but there won't be a Hyperwrt for the 300N.

    Thanks For Trying Dude..

    Thanks for your efforts..
    Mine is so unstable its pathetic.. I have noted is works best if I am using WNC... Rather then the linksys software... Atleast it now can bring the speed back up rather then just drop off continuously til disconnected.. Have not had any drop offs since..
    But it has only been a few hours...

    I will see how it does til weekend.. If no better or is just a fluke.. May return it...

    Have been testing it on 4 PC's and so far I have two using wusb54GS V2 and running WNC connections apears tohave improved as specified above. I have one wusb54gs v 2 running with linksys software. It has dropped once since I wswitched the other two.. Also have a wusb54g v 4 running linksys.. It is only one that has been at least able to run linksys software and recover from any drop in speed on its own..

    From this I suspect the Speedboost feature is its worst enemy..

    I do have as a router the wrt300n V1

    Thanks again for trying.. I hope my adjustments work for me.. I hope they work for others having same problem.. Its not perfect by any means but at least my system is online (so far continuously) past best performance has been 1-2 hours so far it has been ---- 4 hours 35 minutes uptime..

    If these work.. I will look for others who may (hopefully) come up with stable 3rd party firmware for the wrt300n...

    Oh.. my laptop that uses a INP 2200 card is as unstable as the wusb54GS as well.. So that kind of puts my hopes of a somewhat stable system. At bay..

    Thibor - don't give up! We're counting on you! Maybe we could have a whip round here and mail you another.........the first version you sent me has been OK (in WDS mode) (if I don't touch it). I have all N so can't vouch for the b/g issues you are trying to fix.....

    Does this mean that your efforts will move back towards the development of the 54G/GS/GL/SL54GS firmware? If that's the case... Woot! I don't mean to sound selfish, but I intend to wait until Wireless-N is out of it's "draft" stage before going to buy a router that supports it. Like Thibor said, it's been too much of a headache for him trying to develop a stable firmware for it.

    I look forward, and patiently await Thibor16, and am very curious to know what's going to be in it. Now, I know Thibor15c is [retty much complete, but I'm sure there will be a Thibor16, and am just curious as to its planned changes/features.

    there isn't really a desire at this end for a Thibor 16, unless something drastic happens. to be honest with you, i love 15c and think it's great; it's stable and fast and doesn't crash which is all i wanted from a linky. perhaps with the prospect of my getting a wrv200 and doing something with that, as i've already checked the complete sources and asp being present i will be able to do a 16 release with all the latest stuff, ie busybox, iptables and dnsmasq. but as far as features are concerned, i'm not really sure of what extra to do as it's pretty good as is. perhaps i could integrate qwerty's wol schedule if he completes it and maybe a black/white list.

    By "drastic" do you mean if, for example, Linksys were to release a new official firmware (newer than 4.71.1)?

    I seem to remember a post that someone made in another thread about adding a feature where you could restrict users to a select number of allowed sites or services rather than just listing the sites & services that are blocked. This would prove highly useful. Nevertheless, it's up to you whether a Thibor16 is made... I don't know too much about Linux, so I wouldn't be able to add anything like that myself, I'm just trying to give some words of encouragement, and that if you can make 15c as stable as it is, I'm sure you could do that same with 16!


    P.S. I LOVE 15c... Don't get me wrong! I've been up and running without a single reboot since May 12th when you released it!

    by drastic, i don't just mean a new codebase; although that would motivate me slightly to do it. i was talking about if a massive showstopping bug was found(which it hasn't so far).

    Thibor, Do you mean you can compile the source released for the WRV200? I really think at $70US, this is a possible successor to the WRT's. The features are already there, but the router is very unstable in certain configurations.

    if i couldn't, i wouldn't have mentioned it as a possibility. i've looked over the sources, and the asp(web pages) are present which if they weren't, would've stopped me dead in my tracks.

    Could you let me in on how you set up the build environment? I would like to try a few things myself, but I did not get it to compile.
