I just registered to participate in this thread, which I'm following since november or december 2010, when I searchead for OpenWRT support on my adsl router, the infamous smc7908a-isp I received about a couple of years ago from my then adsl provider, ya.com and now I have collecting dust at home. I was happy to see finally some progress was being done, so first of all I want to thank all the people involved on this, namely ngp, pippolippi, blogic, vpablos and my apologies if I've forgotten anyone!
My progress on this... so far I've flashed my device with ngp's experimental firmware which I got from http://personales.ya.com/_ngp_/firmware … rt_bin.bz2. It works well, I can ssh to it and access the filesystem (I was exepcting to get the HTTP interface for dummies but noticed it's not there ), but that's all. As far as I know it lacks wifi support so it's of not much use for me. I'm not in any way a Linux hacker, so now I'm kinda lost and I don't know how to continue. Went to http://backfire.openwrt.org/10.03.1-rc4/ifxmips/ and downloaded every file from there, but
a) I don't know really how to flash my router with them, nor what file(s) should I use from there,
b) as the timestamps of those files are from November 2010, I don't think the progress discussed on this thread is applied there, am I wrong?
If someone could enlight me and put some instructions from really newbies on how to get all the features you have been able to get working, or even more (I already know it is much to ask ) put an updated firmware image to upload with the router web interface, it would make my day.
By the way, I have a kind of miscellaneous question maybe someone could also answer. Could this router potentially recognize (and take advantatge of) any kind of usb device attached to it which already have support for it in the linux kernel, not only storage devices? I mean, an usb 3G modem, a DVB-T stick, a printer or a soundcard?
Thanks all in advance and I will be glad to help on this as far as my knowledge allow me
