Would a CFE dump give Eko or brainslayer enough info to see if the current builds will work for it?

Good deal, I will order mine next week I hope. Too bad we won't get the benefit of the router until we get some optware on there, this thing may actually be a decent media streamer. But someone will probably need to get one for Eko or at least let him borrow one to get a firmware release any time soon. As many routers as DD-WRT firmware sells for newegg I think *they* should donate.

Unfortunately, Newegg seems to be sold out for now. Anyone know of anywhere else that is currently selling the router, and actually has it in stock? I checked Tigerdirect and Amazon, but unfortunately neither of them had it. I hope that Newegg will have more in stock soon, as they would definitely be my preferred place to order from, but I don't know how quickly they will have more in.

Damn, wow! Lol, I emailed them about 2 weeks ago telling them to stock up as they will sell like hotcakes, and in less than 24 hrs they've sold out! Glad I already ordered mine and everything's been processed Smile

Man what's up with that 1.5 amp power supply though, pretty lacking if you ask me. I won't use anything less than 2 amps with usb.



Yea thats awkward.

RTN16 (12V) x (1.25A) = 15Watts

500w - (5v) x (2.5A) = 12.5 Watts

I think this also the first Asus with JTAG support. I will try flashing with the mini-asus.trx when it arrives, hopefully it works! Surprised

Looking at those websites, I'm not sure which, if any, I should trust, so I think that I'm going to just wait til Newegg restocks and I'll order from there. I love my WRT54G2, but I look forward to upgrading to something that's faster and doesn't require a micro build.

I didn't know it had jtag support, good to know as I now have experience on your old unit which is up and working again, told you I would bring it back alive today Wink.

Quote from wl500 forums:

Quote:
One key question is that whether this router uses BCM4718 or BCM4716. With BCM4718, it is possible to have third party firmware (really hoping oleg can create one for us) to support dual band wireless N. On the other hand, with BCM4716, it only supports 2.4Ghz band.

/proc/cpuinfo indicates the chip is BCM4716, and the name of this router, RT-N16 seems to point to BCM4716 being used. However, there are photos with BCM4718. Furthermore, according to a Chinese web site, http://neture.homeip.net/digiland/vi...php?id=882&p=1, the CPU is actually BCM4718, but Broadcom tag the BCM ID to 4716. Also, the page pointed out that BCM4716 does not support USB ports.

So unless Asus put in a VIA USB chip (or a USB management chip of some sort), BCM4718 seems to be a more logical choice (well, everyone prefers BCM4718). Furthermore, BCM4718 and BCM4716 have different pin count (so you cannot just replace BCM4718 with BCM4716 without some re-arrangement of the board).

The only real way to tell is to open the router... Not sure anyone would be willing to do that though.

I really hope BCM4718's ID is incorrectly tagged so /proc/cpuinfo reports BCM4716. However, even if Asus did put in BCM4718, we still need a guru like oleg to enable dual band wireless N.




Looks like Asus has ''deactivated'' dual band support for the first batch of releases...It's possible a firmware update will enable dual band.

Without a 5ghz radio there's no 5ghz even if the chip supports it.

Well, once I get mine delivered, and more people start experimenting with it, the truth will be told Wink

MM has been told this numerous times, if you read this thread. He apparently doesn't understand the fact that you can't enable an absent radio....
