WNR3500L sources and toolchain

Hi all!
I have a netgear WNR3500L router and I want to compile the source code to create a new firmware to put inside the router.

I followed the "WNR3500L Open Source Guide & Resources" article and I have some doubts:

1) I download the toolchain from "http://www.filewatcher.com/m/hnd-tools-3.2.3.tgz.82107594.0.0.html" not from netgear site... Is that the rigth file?

2) I have installed the toolchain but when the article tells to to go to the directory "src/router" I cannot find it. I soppose that I need the source code router. I have only the "hndtools-mipsel-linux-3.2.3" and "hndtools-mipsel-uclibc-3.2.3" packs. What is the link to download the router code?

3) When I execute make menuconfig, the default packages that are installed by default by netgear are selected? If no, what are the packages that I need to select to have the same firmware that comes with the router?

Beside the toolchain you

Beside the toolchain you should have Netgear source code for wnr3500l too. Toolchain is used for cross-compiling this sorce code.

You can find the Netgear source code from the link below..


This source code is incorporated with thorough build documentation. You can have your target image merely following the build steps in the documentaion.
