Did you play with the stock firmware at all? If so, how flexible and capable was it?


I played with it for a few hours but didn't thoroughly all the functionality to see if anything was broken. *If* everything works then it is very safe to the stock firmware will do just about anything 90% of advanced home users may want to do with a router. The rest of us can play with custom firmwares. In fact, I would have kept the stock firmware if I hasn't spent so much time tweaking my QoS settings in Tomato.

If you can find it, go for it. I haven't bothered looking in electronics stores; I can buy cheaper online, but everywhere I've looked, it isn't stocked and ships after 3-5 weeks. The factory firmware is broken and must be updated out of the box. Yes, DD-WRT is running on it, but it's still a work in progress, and I believe that the wireless drivers are the biggest hurdle ATM since the legacy driver doesn't support 3x3 MIMO.

I can find them easy enough and I never use the factory F/W since i started using DD-WRT.

i just have to move fast as my wrt610n V1 is dropping wifi and the nvram seems to lose some variables.

off to buy a router Wink

My 610n seems to be having issues as well...I would say perform a hard reset, reflash, erase nvram, etc. I got mine back up and it has been more or less operational...wl0 seems to be more problematic but I have issues with both radios on the 2.4GHz band.

Hi, Does this mean that the router can connect directly (not just pass through) to a VPN server using the stock firmware?

Thanks

Nope, it has a pptp server, but not a client so it can host vpn but won't connect to another vpn server Sad can't wait till dd-wrt is stable on this router!

Done know if anyone has posted serial output but here she is, once dd-wrt gets loaded we can see where the problem lies. This is 3.x asus firmware boot serial.

I give up... What is the significance of PREEMPT?

And.. for you guys that have your hands on one of these, does it still have the sd card slot on the pcb? Can you get to it without taking it apart? Is it documented what it does and how to use it?

Sorry for the noob questions.. Smile

The Linux kernel is compiled for true (pre-emptive) multitasking where no process can steal all the cpu cycles.

The opposite is cooperative multitasking which relies on the processes behaving well which they often don't.

when you read this, keep in mind that a router is in all respects a computer.
