Topic: Kamikaze WGT634U Configuration?!

The content of this topic has been archived between 20 Jan 2018 and 5 May 2018. Unfortunately there are posts – most likely complete pages – missing.

Hi there,
I just installed the WGT634U Kamikaze Image with 2.6 kernel and squashfs support ( http://flyashi.dyndns.org:81/bin/ ).
It worked very well, but now I don't now how to configure Network.
(Tired /etc/config/network, but didn't worked)

Any Ideas?!

Yea.. the default config didn't work for me either.

Some steps I took to enable wifi and networking:

In /etc/firewall.user, add:

iptables -I br0 -o $WAN -j ACCEPT (i forget the exact line.. i've since borked my router so i dont have this setting anymore)

Rember to run firewall.user after editing it

I also added wifi support following Geoff's post here in the forums.

I also added "autocreate=ap" to /etc/modules.d/20_madwifi after "ath_pci".

Other users have said that the default config is OK in recent builds. I've updated the server to make hourly builds (have to fix version number reporting) so what's there is (now) the latest. Try it... if it doesn't work ... then the default config for the WGT634U is broken and ... bad stuff.

- me

Yes, you can.

Just follow the instructions at the link you posted, then just upload openwrt-wgt634u-(squashfs or jffs2).bin .

Easy as 3.14 :-)

Some more config tips:

If you're a WhiteRussian convert, you should know that all the network configs are stored in /etc/config/network. There you can edit all your settings.

All the other Howto's apply ( http://wiki.openwrt.org/OpenWrtHowTo ) for setting up client mode, USB Storage, Samba, etc.

The wiki and forums have pretty much everything you need to set up your router however you want. If you need some help, check out http://openwrt.org/support .

- Yasha

It's unfortuante that networking doesn't work out of the box for the wgt634u.

In fact, the 05networking seems to miss the board entirely.  After fixing this, I am able to get the network up on eth0, but no scripts
exist for proper vlan or bridge configuration. 

The problem with the wiki howto's is that they're based on the wrt54g/gs which are very nvram dependent.

Is there a page I'm missing for setup on non-nvram based routers like this one?

All the same settings exist; except instead of being stored in nvram, they're stored in /etc/config/network .

The why isn't the router taking the /etc/config/network variables at startup?

At the first shell upon startup:

$ ifconfig

.. this doesn't say anything about the network config... the bootlog is all pre-OpenWrt. Only OpenWrt reads /etc/config/network. Is that the end of your bootlog?

It may have something to do with the lack of packages in Yasha's images.

I created an image (build 3116) a couple weeks back with the default packages in menuconfig.

Defaults where:
base-files - 6 -
base-files-brcm-2.6 - 2 -
bridge - 1.0.6-1 -
busybox - 1.1.0-1 -
dnsmasq - 2.26-1 -
dropbear - 0.47-1 -
iptables - 1.3.4-1 -
kernel - 2.6.15.1-brcm-1 -
kmod-madwifi - 2.6.15.1+r1416-20060126-brcm-1 -
kmod-ppp - 2.6.15.1-brcm-1 -
kmod-pppoe - 2.6.15.1-brcm-1 -
kmod-switch - 2.6.15.1-brcm-1 -
mtd - 3 -
ppp - 2.4.3-7 -
ppp-mod-pppoe - 2.4.3-7 -
uclibc - 0.9.28-6 -
wireless-tools - 28.pre13-1 -

The switch worked great and I was able to change the br0 IP to 192.168.1.4 successfully after editing /etc/config/network.  I also disabled dnsmasq (chmod -x /etc/init.d/S50dnsmasq) and was able to get dhcp forwarding from my main router.

I'm having troubles getting ath0 into Master mode (hostapd failing to set Master as well) so I tried one of Yasha's images from this morning (build 3181).

Here are the packages that where included in that image:
base-files - 6 -
base-files-brcm-2.6 - 2 -
bridge - 1.0.6-1 -
busybox - 1.1.0-1 -
dnsmasq - 2.26-1 -
dropbear - 0.47-1 -
iptables - 1.3.4-1 -
ppp - 2.4.3-7 -
ppp-mod-pppoe - 2.4.3-7 -
uclibc - 0.9.28-6 -
wireless-tools - 28.pre13-1 -
zlib - 1.2.3-3 -

I suspect the lack of kmod-switch is the reason why your br0 is not coming up.  I tried an "ifconfig br0 up" command, but only ran into errors.

Yes, that's the end of my bootlog.

Yes, I suspect that it's a lack of packages as well.

No directory /lib/modules exists, as it tried to load modules and fails in the bootlog.

An ls of /lib

$ls

root@C4:/etc# ls /lib
ld-uClibc-0.9.28.so  libcrypt-0.9.28.so   libdl.so.0           libnsl-0.9.28.so     libresolv.so.0       libuClibc-0.9.28.so
ld-uClibc.so.0       libcrypt.so.0        libm-0.9.28.so       libnsl.so.0          librt-0.9.28.so      libutil-0.9.28.so
libc.so.0            libdl-0.9.28.so      libm.so.0            libresolv-0.9.28.so  librt.so.0           libutil.so.0

As a result, no route package exists, so I'm unable to use the ip link command.


Perhaps this goes back to the S05netconfig script not properly recognizing the wgt634u.  Here is that default script from the latest svn:

Thanks for the feedback! I'll add those images to the default package.

Hmm... kmod-switch and all the other packages are selected in make menuconfig... selected with *, so they're included in the default build.... Anyway, turns out my cron script wasn't really working. So it's now running in an infinite loop with a 1-hour sleep; not great, but it works. Latest kamikaze is 3250. If you could try it and let me know if the packages show up, that'd be great. My wgt no longer works so I can't test it myself.

Thanks again for the feedback,

- Yasha

Thanks for the update, looks like the wireless modules are included in default image now.

However, there are still no scripts to bring up networking in /etc/init.d , which makes
the setting of any networking variables in /etc/config/network relatively useless.

Even though you can't debug because your router is hosed, can't you at least mount the jffs2 image to loop and take a look at the bootstrap scripts?

Thanks for your support in providing these images btw.

Ok Ydef,
cause you're doing such a great job,
I am also willing to help as much as I can.
Got my router after some, um well, fecked up reinstalls running now 'smoothly' with the netgear wgt634u_1_4_1_10.
So, now first thing I'm going to do is to try the "wgt634u-upgrade.cfg" with your latest image.
I'm going report the outcome of that.
Just a moment.

DeusExMachina

PS: If you got something to try, just tell me, I not got so much time at the moment, but I'll do it asap.

Ok,
got some results:
1. The 'Netgear Webfront Flash'
Yep, it worked very good,
you just get .cfg in as "Save Config", the system does reboot, and you got the menu point "Upgrade To OpenWRT".
Important! Yes, it looks like the point "Router Upgrade", which is directly above and is for upgrading normal Netgear flash files,
but it is ANOTHER thing, so don't mess these two things up. On the Url, you can see wheter you're on the right thing!
-> Flashed it with the new "OpenWrt Kamikaze 3250 compiled Sat Feb 18 07:25:55 EST 2006.", squashfs.
System does reboot,
try to connect - nothing.
Ok,

2. Kamikaze Build:
Hook up to serial Console, got these things printed out:

As you can see on the mark, on one point, it did "Freeze" one time I rebootet the system.
Dunno why!
Access from outside does NOT work, wheter on eth0 or on the vlan0, on 192.168.1.1, 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.2.21 (use this address since long, cause the wgt isn't my mainrouter, but only my "experimental station", using a nice zyxel hw 667 here....)
Access from inside the serial console does NOT work, you can press enter or what ya want, NOTHING works! Even if you press fast on the moment it says "press enter"...
Access from wlan hasn't been tested yet, but I think it won't work.
If it is necessary to check this, just say it and I try!

DeusExMachina

DeusExMachina:  I don't have any problem getting the serial console to work after reflashing with image.  I don't use the web interface, i do it by booting into the CFE and grabbing the image off an independent tftp server i have setup. 

CFE commandline arguments can be found in the openwrt wgt634u documentation:

http://wiki.openwrt.org/OpenWrtDocs/Har … ar/WGT634U

In order to get into CFE, just reboot from serial console and hold down control-c until it throws you into CFE prompt.

To bypass setting up your own tftp server you might be able to tftp image into the router like you can with wrt54g/gs with flash.sh  since boot_wait variable is set on nvram although I  haven't confirmed that this method works.

Although it's strange that your serial console works before and not after flashing image.  Either the upgrade method you're using through web interface is faulty somewhere, or your serial connection somehow hosed itself.  The latter is easy to fix, so if you're serial connection thoroughput isn't the problem, then try the CFE tftp method of upgrading image as I just described.

Yeah, I normally do upgrade via tftpd, cause thats the most secure method,
I just only want to try the .cfg Frontend Method,
and, as you see, it seems to not work the way it should.
I'm going to do an "correct and clean" reflash of the image now,
and pass the results on.

Serial Console things aren't a problem for me, I know how to use it, but I think the direct serial console access might have been busted because of this flashing method.

*doin reinstall*

PS: Yeah, on Wlan, there was none Access Point or whatever, so the WGT didn't had this thingy on there as well, so really NO connection. ^^

Hi,

I flashed my WGT634U this moring with kamikaze 3250. I used the CFE to do that. However, I got the same results as DeusExMachina. Trying the new image now. I will let you know about the results afterwards.

Yasha: Great job and thanks for providing the images!

If there is any testing to do, please let me know!

As promised, my boot log. "ifconfig" shows that there is a device "br0" with an address "192.168.1.1". However, I am not able to access the box through a network connection. I am getting errors during the boot process as you can see:

Yep ... essentially identical to my bootstrap, which goes back to my earlier message that the lack of any scripts in /etc/init.d to bring up networking makes customizing the nvram variables in the /etc/config/network file relatively useless.


Also Yashi:

I assume you have a wrt54g/gs unit ... have you veried that networking works on the 2.6 images you provide?

When attempting to flash my gs unit with your 2.6 image, networking doesn't seem to come up either ... and I don't have a serial connected to my gs unit.

Essentially identical? Any ideas why I get theses errors? Seems like the flashing or erasing of flash0.os doesn't work properly. Strange...

Any help appreciated!

Ah yeah, I don't have the problem with my mtdblock/4 partition being hosed as it seems you do.

Are you running squash or jffs2?

My guess is you used a squash image.

Either way, reinstall with jffs2, even if you're going to use squash again after that.  By install jffs2 install will do a complete rewrite of the flash partitions, which is what you need at the moment with you mtd/4 hosed like that.

Also, Yashi:  Doesn't seem like you have the usb drivers compiled in ... if you did then hardware would detect attached usb drives during bootstrap.

The usb 2.0 modules don't seem to be available on your site via ipkg either, and has disappeared from the TODO.

I'm getting this error at the end of my bootstrap log:

The mtd utility and the diag.o module are missing.

Hmm..

Sorry to hear that my images aren't working. sad

I WAS running a WGT634U, but I fried it. I'm gonna get another few soon, then I can do some testing.

The USB drivers aren't compiled in because not all routers have USB, and I didn't want to cloud the base image. I can compile them in if you guys want. They should be available via ipkg; if "ipkg update" doesn't work, edit your ipkg.conf to point to http://flyashi.dyndns.org:81/packages . It should be there by default in my images; if not, either edit it manually, or try the full URL: ipkg install http://flyashi.dyndns.org:81/packages/k … mipsel.ipk for example.

The image doesn't even boot for some people? Now THAT'S not very nice... booted for me, even with a few errors (.ko's not found, etc).

I recall default networking wasn't working. Changes I made included adding a line to /etc/firewall.user for basic LAN<-->WAN access; wlandev create for the wireless; and I had a MAC-address changing script. Every upgrade I'd have to do this; if I can get my exact commands, I'll post them.

Again, sorry to hear of your troubles. I'll see if I can't find my changes to the default image; however, it *should* be working as of 3200 or so...
