UPDATE: This mod has been abandoned.

Ok!
I finished fast check of my version of dd-wrt firmware!
All things works as planned!

First of all about what were removed from original firmware to free space for extra modules:
1. IPv6 support.
2. USB printing support.
3. USB serial support.
4. 3G drivers for Sierra and Option cards.

Second - what were added:
1. Swap support by the kernel.
2. ext2 and loop modules
3. ext3 and related modules
4. fat, vfat and related lang modules (nls_cp437, nls_iso8859-1, nls_iso8859-2, nls_utf8)


In attached file you will find the firmware itself.
This file must be used with Asus Firmware Restoration Utility or by using tftp client.
If you don't know what it does mean - please forget about my build!

Busybox included into firmware does not have swapon and swapoff utility built-in therefore you must install and use busybox from optware.

Disclaimer: I believe you know what sentence must be here

Please enjoy your router with build-in FS and SWAP support!

P.S. Just to be sure that uploaded file is intact,
file size - 3713631
file md5sum - d7c9b36dc880aaa4310aa03bd6e565a1

Nice job man Smile
I'm really glad to have a native filesystem suport in my router now !

I have two question:
You added FileSystem modules, delete some supports and firmware became with half size ?
IPV6 is not necessary for windows 7 network share neighborhood ?

Your 4 LAN ports on the router passes traffic between them without going through the router software so you do not need dd-wrt IPV6 support for that, IPV6 frames will go through the LAN switch.

Network shares work without IPV6 enabled on your computers, it is only a matter of the computers showing up as belonging to the neighbourhood or outside the neighbourhood.

When the time comes that dd-wrt software need IPV6 then it will be because it is needed for routing, for connection to the internet and not because of some stupid Microsoft idea.

grymster, thanks for your work!

I really need swap on my router, but also I need USB printing. Is there any way to get it (like install something in /opt and run?) or it should be in initial firmware?

Thank you.

I'm sorry for late response but you can try to put attached file somewhere on your drive (e.g. in /opt) and use start-up script to load it after disk will be mounted.
Use something like this:

insmod /opt/usblp.ko

Updated to 17990.
Included usblp.ko

Upgrade instruction in the first post.

After upgrade dropbear (ssh server) stops working!
To fix it you must run next commands through web interface:

Code:

nvram unset sshd_rsa_host_key
nvram commit
reboot


P.S. Just to be sure that uploaded file is intact,
file size - 3694638
file md5sum - 15c0b017c4de18d850fdcb57400ca9b1

You are confusing rt-n13u with rt-n13u.b1
This mod is for first one
