    First of all, I use the recent official firmware NOT sveasoft, so there is no telnet login.

    I use the modified perl script mentioned in
    to get a pseudo shell on the wrt54g.

    I try to lower ip_conntrack_max value from 1024 to say 512 (this is really just an example, could be any value from /proc/sys/net/ipv4/*) by the following actions in the pseudo shell:

    wrt54g # cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_max
    wrt54g # echo 512 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_max
    wrt54g # cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_max
    I.e. the value is unchanged. Apparently there's no sysctl command in the official firmware, so this is not an option.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    Edit: Fixed this myself.

    Temporarily removed the "> /tmp/ping.log" redirection from the command injection, which solves the problem. Obviously I can't see the change until i reenable ping.log and do a cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_max.
