Flashing DD-WRT[edit]

'Installation instructions

Quick Info

router flashed: brand new ASUS RT-G32 (obtained in January 2010. came with asus firmware v3.0.1.7)

dd-wrt build flashed: v24-sp2 (12/28/09) std (SVN revision 13525)

OS used to flash: Windows 7 x64

by --Tilex 01:35, 20 January 2010 (CET)

Preparation

  • Start off with a fresh RT-G32. Reset it to factory defaults.
  • Set your ethernet card up to use a static ip. Use 192.168.1.166, gateway 192.168.1.1, no dns server.
  • You'll need to run a TFTP server. I used Tftpd32.
  • You'll also need a telnet client. I used putty.
  • Download asus-to-dd-wrt.bin from here.
  • place linux.bin in the root of your TFTP directory.

Connecting to RedBoot

In order to flash the router, you'll need to access RedBoot on the router via telnet.
Here are the settings I used for putty:

 host name:  192.168.1.1
 port:  9000
 connection type:  telnet
 close window on exit:  never

Plug your ethernet cable in to port 4 on the router. Then plug in the power to the router, wait 3 seconds, then click "Open" in putty to start your telnet session. This may take you a few tries to get it to connect. On a successful connection, putty should display something like this:

== Executing boot script in 1.920 seconds - enter ^C to abort
^C
RedBoot>

Flashing From RedBoot

now enter these commands into your telnet client exactly: [my comments are in square brackets]

 ip_address -l 192.168.1.1/24 -h 192.168.1.166 [press enter]
 fis init [press enter]
 y [press enter]
 load -r -b 0x80041000 asus-to-dd-wrt.bin [press enter]
 fis create linux [press enter. there won't be any console output 
   until it's done running... took just under 4 minutes for me.]
 fconfig [press enter twice]
 fis load -l linux [press enter]
 exec [press enter exactly 12 times]
 y [press enter.  it will take about 5 seconds to respond.]
 reset [press enter]

At this point the router will reboot. Wait at least 1 minute and 25 seconds and then you should be able

to point your browser to http://192.168.1.1/ and access the dd-wrt control panel.

(note: it always seems to take about 1 minute and 25 seconds for the router to boot up.

In other words, every time you apply power or restart the router,

it will take about 1 minute and 25 seconds for the dd-wrt control panel to be accessable.)

Once you're in the dd-wrt control panel, goto Administration/Factory Defaults, click "Yes" and "Apply Settings".

All done!

Reverting[edit]

'Reverting instructions

:Hello again !

I finally made it !!! YES i return from dd-wrt firmware to original asus firmware V3.0.2.1.

With your permission i shall post how I did it.

Of course the main "source" was http://vladmgn.ru/?p-24 (yes russian ppl rocks to Smile ),

google translation from russian to romanian, yahoo bable fish translation from russian to english.

so lets begin.. connect to RedBoot (you know how..or look at [dd-wrt-wiki:ASUS_RT-G32] )

1. fis init
2. y
3. put this file ( http://vladmgn.ru/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/config.txt )
renamed into "config" in your tftp root directory
4. ip_address -l 192.168.1.1/24 -h 192.168.1.166

(of course your ip address is 192.168.1.166)

5. load -r -b %{FREEMEMLO} config
6. fis create -l 0x00010000 -f 0xBFFD0000 -e 0x00000000 -r 0xBFFD0000 config
7. fconfig [ 2 times enter !!]
8. fis load -l vmlinux.bin.l7
9.
exec -c “root=/dev/mtdblock1 of rootfs=squashfs”
10. after 12 times enter, type the "y"
now dont worry, you dont have vmlinux on your router... keep reading ;p
11. reset

Now,

- close putty,
- change ip address to 192.168.1.254, DONT FORGET to CLOSE tftp
(that's why all of you receive "Socket error" with the firmware restoration tool)
- open original Firmware Restoration
- take off the power from router
- repower the router, HOLDING down "reset" button from router
- BEGIN Firmware Restoration (select RT-G32_V3.0.2.1_RU09.bin)..

i was STILL PRESSING the reset button until 5% then i released the reset button

And voila ! Firmware restoration was succesfully ended.

After 1-2 min, connect to web interface and restore factory defaults; its NECESSARY !!!

Good luck !!! If I could do it, so can you..just pay attention and read all before starting.

PS. I'm still "comparing" dd-wrt with original..if one can say "compare"...

anyway its a little more stable the original firmware than dd-wrt
and doesnt hang on wireless havy traffic - torrents.
