 6/8/05 DanFlett : Just an update to say that I've installed OpenWRT WhiteRussian RC2 one of my WL500g units and it works very well.  I've managed to mount a USB memory key and a 60GB hard drive (not at the same time - I don't have a USB hub yet).  For some reason OpenWRT only reports 2.2MB of flash space onboard so it's getting cramped already.  I'm going to investigate running a root filesystem off external flash memory once I'm sure I can easily "dual boot" OpenWRT - from either the internal flash or off an external flash.  Once I've done that I'll install Samba on the external memory and share files off the 60Gb HDD.  I'm also going to experiment with using a USB-Serial adaptor and a USB dial-up modem. 
 I followed this (http://wiki.openwrt.org/UsbStorageHowto HowTo) - with the important difference is that my WL500g has an OHCI usb controller, not UHCI - so I added the ''usb-ohci'' module, not the ''uhci'' module.

 I have flashed it with 1.9.2.7-6b firmware from the http://oleg.wl500g.info/ site (it still uses the ASUS web page interface with some added goodies). There is a nice little "howto" at (http://www.macsat.com/ipkg.php www.macsat.com/ipkg.php) on how to setup a 256Meg USB stick or external USB drive and make it mount on bootup :) and install ipkg package system. I have even got midnite commander working on this for ease of use. So far the unit has been working great, 
 and as Peter says, the Mitsubishi R100 is the same unit as the WL-500G, the cost of the Mitsubishi's are around the $110+ mark
