Sorry to take a couple of steps back in this thread, but .....

Please PM me details if you can help.

Cheers

Re: Custom Firmware Thread: *RELEASED* Ver 1.1.1aE [DR500GW-

to connect in client mode, you must:
- A custom-config
Mode=STA
- in wpa.conf set the network settings
may need to add the encryption unless the connection
network={
ssid="name"
scan_ssid=1
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
psk="very secret passphrase"
}

some problems with the documentation :(

having issues connecting to wifi of this thing, anyone help me out here? I have this in the wpa file and setup the IP and everything but it is showing an SSID of default not what I put in the config file. also the wps key I put in config file doesn't work.
how to fix?

If it offers an option of no security, no passwords etc I'd try that as a starting point to see if you can connect successfully first

Hi! I recently installed my DR500GW-HD and am working on building the polarized filter for it. I figure while I'm at it, I would go ahead and update to the newest custom firmware in English. Can anyone send it to me or direct me to where to find it?

Thanks!
