Gary, suggestion, maybe 'we' could just have a PADAVAN thread only? We'd post to it when there is something pertaining to the flash, good, bad, or just a new release rather than intermingling it here?

It's a pretty damned good idea. Sticky it too, while you're at it.

If we did that it would probably get moved to another forum section..best to keep it here and keep this thread going as it is.

Gary I'm thinking about buying a ASUS RT-N56U , I know you love this model. Wanting to replace my old Dlink DIR-655 that's used as a second wired Router. Is this where everyone gets the padavan firmware at ?
»code.google.com/p/rt-n56u/
Is the RT-N56U better then a dlink DIR-655 in a hard wired environment ?

The main Router is asus rt-n66u with a 192.168.1.1
I'm assuming the asus rt-n56u also has a 192.168.1.1
Will it be easy to change the router IP to something like 192.168.0.1 and a DHCP IP Address Range: of 192.168.0.100-192.168.0.199
to avoid IP conflict ?

Once you bridge the modem it won't matter but if you want either can be changed...

Ok My new ASUS RT-N56U is all connected so far i updated to the latest padavan firmware and configured everything the way I like.
a Few things I need to ask you, in the LAN>Ethernet Switch I have Disabled "Green Ethernet" when ever I see "green" or "power save" I think of Slow performance , I want everything fast. Was that good to Disable Green Ethernet ? One last thing I see no QOS settings In the Menu , I liked to Keep QOS disabled. Where is the QOS in the menu in the GUI. Thanks

"Green Ethernet" is , is it some kind of silly power saving thingy?

The 'fixes' to .045 :

-------------

Changes to firmware ver. 3.0.3.3-045:
----------------------------------------------------------
- Fixed daylight time for European timezones CET and EET.
- Fixed dnsmasq failure exit on not existing tftp root directory.
- Added IPv6 fixes from upstream kernels.
- Improved stability RTL8367 switch initialization on system startup.
- Improved WebGUI design for PPPoE VPN + MAN connection.

-------------

.045 didn't last too long did it? From what I can tell from the above I don't see anything major? .045 was working fine for me?

Apparently there is alternate firmware for my RT-AC66U. I'm curious, but the darn thing works flawlessly. I'm reluctant to mess around with a good thing.

There is and I am not a fan of it. I tried the 56 version of this and it's nothing at all like the Padvan version which is truly an impressive piece of coding. Down the road things may be different as it matures but right now if faced with stock or Merlin stay where you are.

Hi guys,

Padavan now showing: "The new release of firmware version 3.0.3.3-046 is ready."

Has anyone installed this update? If so, any issues?

Thanks
