    Recompiling firmware

    To recompile firmware you need to download GPL source code available at ASUS site for firmware version (GPL_1756.zip). You will when need to unzip this & and untar the sources and then install toolchain according to README files. Also you will need to download firmware sources from this page and untar them somethere.
    Compiling the kernel

    You will need to prepare kernel sources for this. Download 2 patches: et module patch adds "missing" et module source code (ask ASUS guys about that) and the second adds bunch of stuff from custom firmware - squashfs, updated pwc an ov511 modules, fixes for usb printing and something I can't even remember. To patch sources execute these lines:

    cd /path/to/WL500gb_1.7.5.6_GPL
    gunzip -c path/to/wl500g-et- \
        path/to/wl500g-kernel- | patch -p 1

    This should produce number of strings saying "patching file bla-bla-bla" and no error messages. If you got errors then check your kernel source tree. Once this was done you need to copy kernel config file, which is named .config and located in the root folder of the custom firmware sources and than rebuild kernel. E.g.

    cd /path/to/WL500gb_1.7.5.6_GPL/release/src/linux/lin ux/
    make mrproper
    cp /path/to/wl500g- .
    make oldconfig
    make dep zImage modules

    If you want to customize your kernel use menuconfig instead of oldconfig. Again everything should be done with no errors. At this point your kernel is compiled.
    Compiling firmware

    Install ASUS toolchain, untar curstom firmware sources, e.g.

    tar xjf wl500g-

    This will create directory named wl500g- Go to this dir. If you've recompiled kernel, when you need to copy fresh kernel image and install modules using commands like this

    cd wl500g-
    rm -rf extra/lib/modules/2.4.20
    cp /path/to/WL500gb_1.7.5.6_GPL/release/src/linux/lin ux/arch/mips/brcm-boards/bcm947xx/compressed/vmlin uz piggy.gz
    make -C /path/to/WL500gb_1.7.5.6_GPL/release/src/linux/lin ux modules_install \
        DEPMOD=/bin/true INSTALL_MOD_PATH=/path/to/wl500g-

    Once done just type make. This should start compiling. If everything is went well it should produce file named linux.trx which is your new firmware.
