Once I had already figured out the answer on my own, I was able to find the instructions buried on various forum threads, but that only worked once I knew the command to run so I could search for that particular command. Note that of these three steps, the last one is the only mandatory one, for reasons that will become clear. As I noted above, this thumb drive trick is actually all you need to do if you already know the robocfg command you need to run.

Thanks for this post. It turns out it was a 2-pair cable, and I never noticed it!


I have no option to replace all the cables with cat6 which seemed to fix the issue for some seeing its an old house with terrible accessability to the wires, still this should work just fine.

Same issue here. Cannot successfully auto-negotiate to FD. Very frustrating as direct connection to cable modem from desktop results in FD every time. Has anyone found a solution? Has anyone found out what is going on with this routers? I have been looking finding lots with the problem and know knows how to fix it. IDK if this will help you but I get the same problem when I hook my source ethernet cable to a unmanaged switch. It is locked at up down. So can it be an issue with the ISP?

I have two similar Asus routers, the cheap ACG from my ISP, one running as the main router connected to my gateway, and the other as an access point for extra ethernet ports and wireless. If I were to try and generate heavy traffic by starting up a couple of bittorrent connections, unplugging the second router before allowing auto-negotiation to take place, it will reconnect at 1Gb and stay that way for several hours without dropping.

This tells me there is no issue with the cables whatsoever, and the problem lies within the routers themselves. So pretty much i have created a folder: asusware Inside this folder i created a file named:.

The web interface of the original firmware may not contain certain triggers but the firmware contain many of the necessary tools. So, we can try to implement all necessary manipulations over the router from the original firmware via a command line by the Telnet access protocol.

First of all, you need to connect to your router by use any Telnet client, for example the PuTTY or a command line client. Login using username and password the same as in the web admin panel of the router. In general, the Linux router is very similar to Debian but has some its features. How you see the squashfs volume is mounted in ro i. So we can create and delete files in this directory. But after the reboot everything will be like before and new files will be deleted.

On the router installed BusyBox. BusyBox — is a set of UNIX command line tools, is used as the primary interface in embedded operating systems. In different versions and builds it contain a different number of tools. To get a list of the commands supported by this instance of BusyBox, run it without any arguments, or use the --list option:. To see what an individual command does, use the --help option to that command:. But not all programs in the firmware is a part of the BusyBox.

So you may need to see a list of all programs:. But, how I write above, after the reboot everything will be like before and new files will be deleted. For example, in my router built-in BusyBox v1.


And now about the its features of which I wrote above. There is a special command to work with this memory - flash. The flash is already installed in original firmware. As you can see there is a few options. The abbreviation hw means - hardware. Note: Not everyone of the listed variables are working. To find variables with word NAMEuse command flash together with the grep :.

It will run Debian as well, however, a custom OpenWrt build is required since it has only 2MB Flash, and a small userspace is required to partition and format the HDD before Debian is installed. It has also only been tested with a hand created Debian image created by debootstrap.

A nice thing about this is that you don't need to open your device and connect via serial cable etc. Nice read, I just passed this onto a friend who was doing some research on that. And he just bought me lunch since I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that Thank you for lunch!

Whenever you have an efficient government you have a dictatorship. If you didn't change the network settings, SSH listens on The default password for the "root" user is "toor", and of course you are encouraged to change it.

The base system is about MB it contains some other tools like ssh-server, mc or iptraf, and that's why it's slightly bigger than the minimal system. It's only necessary if you connect using a serial cable first line; router's serial portor a USB-serial cable second line; router's USB portand normally that's not needed after you configured your system. You can move swapfile periodically. This way you ensure that you won't over-use the swap part of your USB-stick. Swap is not too large usually, so you can create several MB swapfiles at once and activate next of them according to your need e.

Keep the old swap-files; if you create new ones only when needed, you could create new swapfile where some of the previous files used to be As seen in our. At the time I built the kernel image available for download here, I used revision from Apr Also, deselect almost all packages. This will make our. Now, build all the tools needed for cross-compilation, and a not yet configured kernel:. Load the. By default, only four LAN ports are enabled.

WAN port is disabled. To enable WAN port, add this command to your startup scripts:. By default, only the WAN port is enabled. The four LAN ports are disabled note: it may differ on different models[on mine no ports were enabled till following the first item].

For these configuration steps to work, you must have the robocfg command, which is available in the download section. A custom OpenWrt build must be used initially. This is required to partition and format the hard disk. Partitioning and formatting tools will probably not fit in the 2MB of flash memory, These can be build as packages by the OpenWrt make script and copied over using netcat which is built into busybox.

Similarly the Debian base system can be copied over using netcat and extracted in place. Remember to set a root password in Debian, use chroot.The idea in general is to have multiple wireless networks at home — one for the house residents, the other for visitors.

The home network should have full access to everything, while the guest network should be able to reach the Internet, but nothing else. I had flushed it with a derived firmware called AsusWRT-Merlin which added the ability to insert custom scripts. For future tinkering, and for any who requires it, I will add my scripts here. Then it will add the VLAN to eth0 — which is the host interface for the external switch ports eth1 is for the Wireless portsbring it up, and create a bridge consisting of vlan and the additional wireless sub-interface wl0.

If you configure a 5GHz guest network, you will need to add it to the bridge device. Unfortunately, these settings must be defined each boot, and they are not kept without the script. Maybe on my next post I will describe my switch network layout and settings.

On a future post, I might even describe how to transfer VLANs to a VM running under KVM, and maybe even explain my router settings, so that eventually the readers other than myself, of course could reproduce this setup at their homes.

This Cisco How-To Tutorial explains how to interpret the config register setting and how to solve problems resulting from an improper setting.

To view the current setting of the configuration register, establish a console or Telnet session with the router. Issue the show version command, and input the contents into the Cisco Output Interpreter. If you cannot establish a console session, or if you see only garbage characters, a speed mismatch between the router and the terminal emulation software could be the cause.

Change the baud rate of your terminal emulation software. These are possible settings:.

vconfig(8) - Linux man page

If the router is in ROMmon mode, issue the confreg command. You receive an explantion of your current setting similar to this:. The factory default setting for the configuration register is 0x This indicates that the router should attempt to load a Cisco IOS Software image from Flash memory and load the startup configuration with a console speed of baud.

For most purposes, the factory default setting of the configuration register is the most appropriate. To change the configuration register to this setting, issue the configuration-register 0x command, as shown:. For further information on using other settings refer to: The Purpose of the Cisco Configuration Register.
