WNR3500Lv2 antenna orientation observation

I notice that I get a stronger wifi signal in the far side of the house with the router's left side facing that way.

My laptop signal level changes from 71% to 77%.

My android tablet signal level changes from good to excelent.

All levels are relative as I have no way to measure real dBm.

This is with a stock antenna router in the vertical postition running tomatoUSB at 42mw power.


Sorry if this is a repeat of old information.


Please help with shared USB drive confusion.

I am using Windows 7 with my WNR3500l.

I have had a 1gb external drive connected to my router, using readyshare.

For whatever reason, I do not see it listed as a disk drive any more when I select Computers in Win 7. It used to be there and I gave it a "N" drive designation.

I believe that I have uploaded a screen print of my Advanced USB Storage screen from my router settings.

It can see it via FTP from the settings.

Can anyone help me so that I can see the attached USB drive again from my Win 7 laptop?





Recommended build for WNR3500L?

The Peacock thread on the DD-WRT forums states that the recommended DD-WRT build is r14929 and I'm wondering what the recommended Kong build is; is Kong r14929 the recommended build, or is there a more recent stable build?

My main conscern is lightening the load, which is why I am looking towards Kong as, from what I understand, it strips out a lot of unneeded stuff (Chilispot, etc.), however I've read that some people have had issues with the most recent Kong build (r22200)

Netgear WRN3500L v1

Hey all,


I have had a Netgear WRN3500L V1 for many years, I don't do anything real advanced with it, but I do have to power it off and reboot it atleast 3-5 times a week.

Anything hardwired to the router works just fine, but WIFI crashes or whatever and none of the WiFi devices have connectiviety..  Also sometimes you will be connected via WiFi and you can see and talk to the router, but no internet connection..


Stuck on channel 6.

iptables scripting to block ports for a specific IP

I need help and I’m not sure if I am on the right track. I want to block all ports for one specific IP address. Only the TCP port 5223 should be open. The reason for is that I don’t want that my kids are using the internet all night long with their mobile phones. They have computers and with them it is much easier to filter unwanted content and websites. Could someone explain me how can I handle this with a iptables script?

I’m using a Netgear WNR3500L v2 with installed TomatoUSB by shabby Version 1.28

Using my old WNR3500 as a NAS-only box

My ISP just sent me a new box with the added functionality of telephony. So I have to use it Frown, but it lacks support for USB drive and NFS sharing. So I hope someone has some ideas on how to reconfigure it to become just a regular NAS box. It's running Tomato right now, but anything goes (as long as it works...)

Something similar as suggested at

Hello guys, i´m new here at the forum.

I use a Netgear WNR3500L quite long and flashed it some years ago with ddwrt.

Now i want to update the firmware, but i am not sure which version is the right one, as i am not really sure which router version i have.  This shows up in the settings:

Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (11/25/09) std-usb-ftp
