My ASUS WL-500g running an OpenWRT snapshot from some time ago is quite stable and works very well. Compared to my former Draytek router it comes with the following features:

  • Availability: it does not reboot under high load, thus I have a quite available internet connection
  • Security: I have the full power of IPTables to secure my network
  • IPv6: It takes care of my IPv6 tunnel for my whole network which is a great feature
  • etc. etc.

So, as you can see, investing 80 € into a new router was a really good idea.

  1. Hello,

    have you connected your brother 2030 to the USB port on your Asus wl-500g and used the built in printer driver?
