Thx for the good job over several years now!!!
Running at the moment 33212 on my WRT350nV2 and it is very stable and reliable wink

best regards

Hi all,

as OpenWrt development is currently stabilized for the next release (called "Attitude Adjustment") I compiled the latest trunk (r33311) for testing.
Please test and report bugs on TRAC (don't forget to put your mail or TRAC user in CC).

As always try at your own risk: ftp://ftp.maddes.net/openwrt/trunk/orion/generic/build_33311/

on PCB are 7 blank solder connections named TP7, TP8, TP9, TP10, TP11, TP12 and TP13.
#11-13 are near by the 88F5180 (cpu) and #7-10 are surround 88W8363 (baseband).

could this an jtag?

I have installed OpenWRT on it and it was working well

I have add a new bridge with Eth0 to test and understand how it works

I have suppress it ............

- Result (If i understand well)
All ports using eth0 to talk togethers stop working

I can see WIFI signal
and i can logg in with wep key i have set at start

but when i hit WRT IP in web brower, no way to acces web interface
same result if i try to connect it by RJ45

I need your help to reverse the situation

Thank you by advance

Hello again

I've make some progress but i stop / block on a new difficulty

can some one help me please

serge, thank you for your post

i don't know if the linked procedure can be used in my case

in // i find and use an other way to try getting back to normal configuration

1°/ First i find here this message here in this thread page 21
https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=94830#p94830

with all needed and a Procedur, Software and RecoveryFirmware to be used !
but the Pb was that at the end i was still unable to logg'into WRT by IP
(maybe the IP of the rooter in the Firmware Linked was not 192.168.1.1, i try several IP without success)



2°/ Then i find the OpenWRT wiki page here http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/linksys/wrt350nv2
that describ the same procedure named "Flashing and Recovery Methods" by "Download Mode"
and as linked in the Wiki page
i used the openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-recovery.bin CFW as linked to achieve unbrick my WRT350-N v2
that alow me to Logg'Into WRT350N v2 using the stadard IP 192.168.1.1

Now my Pb is to find a way to Upgarde to the CFW file openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-webupgrade.img
that i have installed at the begening before i've "brick" the WRT350 by mystake ......

at start thete is the LINKSYS Firmware and i use the "squashfs webupgrade.img" from WEB GUI of the Linksys OFW

and when I try update it with openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-webupgrade.img file
from the Web GUI of the Recovery CFW that i used (dowloaded as linked)

no success, I've got error message regarding the OpenWRT file compatibility

when i try to use openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-webupgrade.img file
of the openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-webupgrade.img file ?

to be continue

(Last edited by wrtcfw on 6 Oct 2012, 13:39)

what are the difference between

CFW openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-webupgrade.img
and
CFW openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-recovery.bin (the one who running now in my rooter)

At first (if i remember well)
i was using/running CFW openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-webupgrade.img

I note that they don't have the same GUI

and if i'm not wrong the "recovery.bin" one is less powerfull than "webupgrade.img" CFW

can some one confirme me it please

I now have Attitude Adjustment beta installed on my WRT350N v2 and it has the CESA module/package (installed), it doesn't seem to do anything all however.

Am I missing something?

Nope, you're not missing anything. The software that you use has to have hwcrypto support built in. If it doesn't, apps like OpenSSL or OpenVPN won't use the CESA-module, much the same like AES-NI-support on modern Intel CPU's.

I was using scp, or rsync. They should support that shouldn't they?

I think scp is based upon OpenSSL and that should support hwcrypto. If you use the right cipher with scp you should see a kernel-thread [mv-cesa] or something taking alot of cpu when you copy files with scp/sftp. The ciphers that the module supports should be listed in /proc/crypto. Look for module: mv-cesa.

And according to this forum-post you should use a linux-module called cryptodev. Maybe that helps?

Did openwrt remove orion from snapshot download ? I have tried to opkg update, but it fails by default.

Hi,

Returning to my WRT350Nv2, I cooked & flashed an image of  BARRIER BREAKER (Bleeding Edge, r34054).
But as soon as I start the wifi (in various configurations), I get:

Hi,

I need to transform my WRT350Nv2.1 into a ethernet/wifi bridge so I'm looking for something like OpenWRT.

The aim is to replace my WRT54G flashed using DD-WRT, but this hardware is not supported with WRT350N

Trying to find documentation on how to flash, I saw I had to use upslug2, so from my ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS i installed it, then downloaded according to this wiki page : http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/linksys/wrt350nv2

http://backfire.openwrt.org/10.03/orion/openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-recovery.bin

but as I saw a more recent version, took this :

http://backfire.openwrt.org/10.03.1/orion/openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-recovery.bin

I switched off my router, hold on the reset button then swithc it on as described, I got the power led blinking between orange and green and finally issued this :

upslug2 -d eth1 -t 00:xx:7E:yy:D0:zz --image=openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-recovery_10.03.1.bin

and got this :

openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-recovery_10.03.bin: invalid file (e.g. bad signature): fatal error [std::exception]

tried this :

# upslug2 -d eth1 -t 00:xx:7E:yy:D0:zz
[no NSLU2 machines found in upgrade mode]

So was wondering if ubuntu's upslug2 is ok, then downloaded and compiled  https://dev.openwrt.org/browser/trunk/tools/upslug2

retried and got exactly the same result.

I discovered an extra super recent unstable wanna play version here too :

http://downloads.openwrt.org/attitude_a … covery.bin

and got the very same result.

So ... as you all seems to have succeeded in flashing your router, could anyone of you redirect me or tell me the steps to reproduce to flash my router and use it please ?

I wouldn't like to open the box (I saw there was a serial port jp5 story)

Thanks in advance for your help !

Hi again,

Today I tried using Windows XP mode under Windows 7 x64 to use the "Upgrade utility 2.07" unsuccessfully.

At least it recognizes the .bin files, but I got an error when trying to update the router : Access Target Error !

I used a normal RJ45 cable right ?

Any help welcome, please !

Hi Manu,

why starting with recovery.bin ?

Did you already give the regular http://backfire.openwrt.org/10.03/orion/openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-webupgrade.img a try ?
Once you have a 10.x version of openwrt running you simply can upgrade with "normal" *.bin (not webupgrade and not recovery) to any version you like.
But best is to build your own image from trunk wink

Keep on reading

Best regards

cm
PS: Maddes has made some cool patches ftp://ftp.maddes.net/openwrt/trunk/orion/

Hi, thank you for your answer !

I've just read the wiki, and they start by the recovery fw :-/ Don't tell me I can simply use webupgrade and use the factory default fw upgrade using the web interface, is that what you mean ???

If you confirm then I'll try to install http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/10.03.1/orion/openwrt-wrt350nv2-squashfs-webupgrade.img using the factory default fw upgrade procedure

Yeeepeeeeeeeeeeeee !

I used the Linksys firmware web interface ( version I was using was 2.0.19) and tried to flash it with this file :

http://downloads.openwrt.org/attitude_a … actory.img

The progress bar stopped at 45% but I waited 30 minutes, just in case, and now I have this :

http://i.imgur.com/7p9qg.jpg

so IT IS POSSIBLE TO FLASH WRT350N v2.1 (the one I have) using factory firmware smile

No need to open it and sold serial jtag wire bla blabla

Thank you very much openwrt for the great work !

Version of my router :

AND I'M NOT FROM AUSTRALIA, I BOUGHT IT IN EUROPE (don't remember if it's France, Germany or Luxemburg yet)

Hey guys,

Anyone has been running 12.09 RC1 without any problems on WRT-350N v2.0 ? I've seen some people installed it, but did it run smoothly without buggy annoyances? Specially on WIFI ?

Are the "wifi issues" mentioned in the devices wiki page reported for the 10.03.1 fixed for 12.09 rc1?

My device is on a "mission critical" situation right now, if the 12.09 rc1 is running fine without any problems, specially on wifi, i would be happy to upgrade. Do you guys recommend upgrade for now?( Im still on linksys firmware).

Thanks for your feedback.

Would be happy to test it, but i did a mistake since with the config (i checked bridge on all different interfaces and cannot access it since)

I do not know how I should proceed, all reset method I tried was unsuccessful I  have to retry.

Have you tried to the "Download Mode"  ? Using the recovery image. As described in in the device wiki ?

wiki.openwrt.org/toh/linksys/wrt350nv2

Yes, but I have to retry, I was on a hurry and bought a Buffalo since.

I installed 12.09RC1 . Everything worked but not wifi. It just didnt show up on any computer, and it was enabled and configured correctly.
