This initial page is based on Running_Debian_on_ASUS_WL-500G_deluxe.
Please bear in mind this page is under construction and depends also on other enthousiasts who contribute to make this page in final stage.
It would be nice to see detailed instructions to get the wireless to work properly and to include a good web frontend

Installing Ubuntu linux[edit]

Install your favourite Linux distro, but make sure you can compile and also Internet should be available, below are instructions for Ubuntu 8.04 server

login with your username
sudo su
vi /etc/apt/sources.list and comment # all deb cdrom: entries and uncomment all deb http: ones
:wq! to save file en exit 

run update/upgrade:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get install tftp subversion make unzip flex patch autoconf bison zlib1g-dev libncurses5-dev gawk g++
exit (to return from super user to user)

Flashing the kernel[edit]

The kernel image was built using OpenWRT buildroot (kamikaze, revision 6580 from 2007-Apr-03). It is, and has built-in SCSI, USB and ext3 support (to be able to boot from USB devices). To flash the image, use tftp. Start tftp program and point it to the IP of your ASUS device ( Press the "restore" button and power on your device. Next step is to upload the image "openwrt-brcm-2.6-jffs2-128k.trx".

wget -P .
tftp> binary
tftp> trace
Packet tracing on.
tftp> put openwrt-brcm-2.6-jffs2-128k.trx

Writing Debian on your USB device[edit]

Download Debian base system and uncompress it to the /dev/sdb1, ext3-formatted partition, (so that you have /bin, /etc and all other directories at the top-dir of this partition). Make sure to use tune2fs on /dev/sda1 partition:

Plug in the USB stick

sudo su
fdisk -l
fdisk /dev/sdb
* d   delete a partition
* n   add a new partition
 * p    primary partition (1-4)
 * 1    Partition number (1-4): 1
 * 1    First cylinder (1-1015, default 1):
 * 1015 Last cylinder or +size or +sizeM or +sizeK (1-1015, default 1015):
* w   write table to disk and exit  
mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1 
mkdir /media/usb-drive
mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb1 /media/usb-drive
df -h
cd $HOME
mkdir debian
cd debian
wget -P .
tar xvfj debian-mipsel-2007-Apr-17.tar.bz2
cp -R mnt/debian-asus/* /media/usb-drive

Make sure the USB stick will not be checked by e2fsck - otherwise, the device might not boot at all!

tune2fs -c0 -i0 /dev/sdb1

When I said use tune2fs, I meant it:

Will now check root file system:fsck 1.40-WIP (14-Nov-2006)
[/sbin/fsck.ext3 (1) -- /] fsck.ext3 -a -C0 /dev/sda1
/dev/sda1: Superblock last mount time is in the future.  FIXED.
/dev/sda1: Superblock last write time is in the future.  FIXED.
/dev/sda1 has gone 49710 days without being checked, check forced.
/dev/sda1: ***** REBOOT LINUX *****
/dev/sda1: 9030/56224 files (0.6% non-contiguous), 167947/224876 blocks
fsck died with exit status 3
* The file system check corrected errors on the root partition
but requested that the system be restarted.
* The system will be restarted in 5 seconds.

This means, your system will loop endlessly after checking the filesystem. This is because these devices don't have a battery-backed clock/rtc.

Configuring network[edit]

You will have to configure your network in the following files:

  • vi /media/usb-drive/etc/network/interfaces - to configure your network
    • NOTE! By default, SSH listens on and, so make sure to change the network settings appropriately.
  • vi /media/usb-drive/etc/resolv.conf - configure DNS (either or DNS from ISP)
  • vi /media/usb-drive/etc/hostname - the hostname of your machine


When you completed previous steps you should be able to boot your ASUS to a fully-working Debian.
It doesn't matter which USB port you choose (unless you connect more devices).

You can log in via SSH, or consoles: USB or serial (check /etc/inittab to see console settings). If you didn't change the network settings, SSH listens on and (available via LAN or WAN interfaces, so check both before reporting problems).
The default password for the "root" user is "toor", and of course you are encouraged to change it.

You should see something like:

login as: root
root@'s password:

Building your own kernel[edit]

The author used revision 6850, however since it does not contain the WiFi for Asus 500W in this tutorial the latest revision from subversion will be extracted to build your own MIPS kernel. This should work in the end with Asus WL500-W BroadCom's 4704 Ethernet and BroadCom's 4321 WiFi on kernel 2.6.

1. Go to $HOME and download openwrt build environment

cd $HOME
svn checkout

2. Go to trunk/ directory, and select all the required tools:

cd trunk
make menuconfig

From this step onward I am currently testing with the original doc, please feel free to update accordingly!

Make sure the first three options will look like:

  • "Target System (Broadcom BCM947xx/953xx [2.6])"
  • "Target Profile (Broadcom BCM43xx WiFi)" and
  • "Target Images" needs be set to "jffs2".

As we want to use Debian only we don't need any OpenWRT packages. This will make our .trx image build faster and it'll be smaller too; the next six options need to be deselected:

  • "Select all packages by default"
  • "Advanced configuration options"
  • "Buildsystem settings"
  • "Build the OpenWRT Image Builder"
  • "Build the OpenWRT SDK"
  • "Image Configuration"

Leave one package enabled as it will be needed to build the .trx firmware (otherwise, .trx image will be "empty", and won't build)

  • "Base system -> base-files"

Deselect all packages in:

  • "Network"
  • "Libraries"
  • "IPv6"
  • "Kernel modules"
  • "Boot Loaders"
  • "Utilities"
  • "Languages"

3. Now, Exit, build all the tools needed for cross-compilation, and a (not yet configured) kernel.
This steps takes quite a while so go and do something else:

make V=99

4. When all the tools are made, copy the .config file to trunk/build_dir/linux-brcm47xx/linux-2.6.x executing

cd $HOME/trunk/build_dir/linux-brcm47xx/linux-
mv .config .config.backup 
wget -P . 

5. Configure the kernel according to your preference:

make ARCH=mips oldconfig

6. Rerun menuconfig although nothing will be changed, this step is needed to update some stamp files. On exit save the changes

cd $HOME/trunk
make menuconfig

7. Make a new image; this step won't be so time consuming

make V=99

8. You will have new images in trunk/bin/

Now we have to build modules for our new kernel:

9. Remove .image and .modules in build_mipsel/linux/

cd $HOME/trunk/build_dir/linux-brcm47xx/linux-
rm .image .modules

10. Go back to trunk/ directory and run make again (now it compiles also the modules we want)

cd ../../..

11. Put modules temporary somewhere (INSTALL_MOD_PATH is where we want to temporary put modules)

cd $HOME/trunk/build_dir/linux-brcm47xx/linux-
INSTALL_MOD_PATH=/tmp/ make modules_install

12. Now we have in /tmp/lib/modules/$our_kernel_version our modules and these need to be copied on the router in /usr/lib/

# ls /tmp/lib/modules/$our_kernel_version/
kernel         modules.ccwmap  modules.ieee1394map  modules.isapnpmap  modules.pcimap    modules.symbols
modules.alias  modules.dep     modules.inputmap     modules.ofmap      modules.seriomap  modules.usbmap
# scp -r /tmp/lib/modules/$our_kernel_version/ router_IP:/lib/modules/

13. Log as root on the router and adjust permissions

# chown -R root:root /lib/modules/

14. Flash the image as explained before and that's it
