The Most Smart WLAN Router in the world just got B0RKED !!!

The Asus WL500G Premium Broadband Router is now really SIX devices in one box.
  1. First, there's the Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect Wireless-G or Wireless-B devices to the network.
  2. There's also a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Switch to connect your wired-Ethernet devices. Connect four PCs directly, or daisy-chain out to more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need.
  3. The Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection, files, and other resources such as printers and hard disk storage space.
  4. It also has ability to be a print server or control device via the printer port
  5. A USB Storage support for USB key's / Harddisks OR a USB Webcam, the storage support is even included on OpenWrt with webcam support on the horizon.
  6. Finally, newly added is built in bit torrent support to download while your pc is off to the wl500gP attached USB harddisk.

Serial port

There seems to be standard dual Uart's for possible dual serial support on this board.


15/08/07 BlueIce : There is a version 2 of this product that MAY not have a mini PCI card as it may be integrated:( How to tell the difference between v2 and v1 remains to be answered.

2/3/08 Peter melb_ap : Well thats the end of this era with the new model having a slower cpu & no mini-pci ! I'll be looking for something else in the future ! See the pics above for yourself.

It has all the pros of the r100/wl500g (minus the parallel port) but with USB2 , BUT now with only a 244 Mhz CPU (was 266 prev), 8 meg flash & 32 meg memory standard.
