Oggi scrivo per tutti gli sfortunati possessori di questo fantastico router ADSL, ebbene sì! Vi illustrerò come salvare gli € spesi per questo baracchino, cambiando il firmware (quello originale è pessimo e buggato) e risolvendo il problema del surriscaldamento che causa i frequenti blocchi riscontrati soprattutto in condizioni di alto carico di rete.

La procedura non richiede di aprire il router, ed è relativamente facile. Per installare OpenWrt bisognerà modificare le partizioni della flash, tramite il server FTP modificato del bootloader ADAM2. In caso voleste ripristinare il vecchio firmware, dovrete ripartizionare la flash coi valori originari (che io non mi sono segnato! ma sono facilmente individuabili nel programma CICLaMaB) per poi ricaricare l’immagine del firmware D-Link. Detto questo passiamo ai fatti! Read the rest of this entry »

Short and useful. Works also with generic OpenWrt devices, not only BR-6104KP.

UPDATE 20 June 2009

I’m working with Gabor, the ADM5120 target mantainer of OpenWrt. He’s interested in officially supporting this boards. Our purpose is to dump the original bootloader to build OpenWrt images that doesn’t need bootloader replacement. Stay tuned!

Gabor officially relased the port this morning!

HowTo install OpenWrt Kamikaze 8.09 on OSBRiDGE 5GXi/5XLi wireless CPEs… I’ve been working on this port for months so, please, leave a comment if you find this page useful!
At the moment, works only in NAT mode, no eth0/wlan0 bridging. For this feature, we’ll have to wait for future releases.
If you get poor data rates over your wireless it’s ath5k driver fault, it’s not stable yet, and lot of features arn’t yet implemented. What? Madwifi you say? Oh well, it just don’t fit in our flash while ath5k does! 🙁
And forget dropbear and web interface, there’s no room for them. We’ll use telnet for remote management. (unsecure… I know)
