Topic: New Broadcom BCM63xx codebase with GPL'd Ethernet and USB support

The content of this topic has been archived between 8 Feb 2018 and 7 May 2018. Unfortunately there are posts – most likely complete pages – missing.

I'm not sure what's the situation for bcm6348. AFAIK, for bcm6358 with the CFE version since 3.10, the board is able to recognize the memory automatically. I've seen some one hacked with 128MB memory.

Hi,
I'm following a similar line to Isaac702.

I have a BT Voyager 2500V (uses a Dynalink/Askey RTA1046VW Rev 2.0 PCB) which uses a board ID of V2500V_BB
So far all I've done is the simple modification to build firmware with right boardID in target/linux/brcm63xx/image/Makefile

+    # BT Voyager 2500VW
+    $(call Image/Build/CFE,$(1),V2500V_BB,6348)

However the tftp upload of the firmware fails with
   

FlashLayoutVer=0 curFlashLayoutVer=5

Reading Isaac702's posts I see that even if I get the Flash Version byte in the header set correctly, there are problems with CRCs.

So I'll email cshore with the output of CFE and a sample firmware.

Thanks
Roger Hardiman

hi all,

@RogherH, Isaac702:

     Trunk has a patch that may allow the BT Voyager to from the web interface now.  If you get a CRC error on reboot, it may be that what I thought was a kernel CRC is a rootfs kernel CRC (I had to guess and I can't test, as I don't have the modem)

@MisteroX:

    Can you try web flashing from stock firmware with latest trunk?

@everyone:

    Testing and reports on the new imagetag, especially web flashing (cfe should 'just work', but there may be exceptions for that too), would be appreciated.  Boot logs, source code, and firmware images all welcomed.

Regards,

Daniel

I build a new openwrt firmware, add HotSpot in webif, but in the web have 2 HotSpott

Thanks foe your work.
It seems that new imagetag has somthing broken on comtrend 536 boards (bcm6348GW-11).

rootfs mtd partition is missing.

Hi Daniel,
for DG834GT the default file extension for send firmware through web interface Netgear is *.img.

Error :

Invalid filename was provided, please enter again:(*.img)


I have renamed the file openwrt-9634GW-10-squashfs-bc300-cfe.bin  in openwrt-9634GW-10-squashfs-bc300-cfe.img and the Web Interface shows the error

Error :

Upgrade file is not the correct type or version for this device.
Upgrade failed.
Please obtain the correct file and try again.

If I use my script to convert the firmware openwrt-9634GW-10-squashfs-bc300-cfe.bin in  openwrt-DG834GT_16393_bc300.img then I can send it through the Web Interface: see post #424

Hi guys,

I wonder if bcm6348 platforms such as Livebox have fully functional CardBus/PCMCIA support? I.e. can I plug let say CardBus SD card reader and put there 16Gb SDHC Card? Or at least some PCMCIA CFI card roll

For USR9108: openwrt-96348GW-A-squashfs-bc300-cfe.bin via web or cfe works fine!

@t3l3m4ko:

Have you done make clean?  It looks like the build you didn't didn't pick up the changes to the source code, because I see that the boot message isn't the message you would get with the new code for the mtd driver.  It should mention a tagid.

yes i have made "make clean" and also "make target/linux clean".
I have divereses troubles after upgrade host system from fc10 to fc11, i think i must reinstall linux.

thanks

With lots of help from cshore I can now flash OpenWRT onto my BT Voyager 2500V (same HW was RTA1046VW from Dynalink)

OpenWRT starts to load but the kernel fails to read the version of CFE and fails to detemine the board name, so OpenWRT does a kernel panic and stops.

The boot log is pasted below.
I've seen the code to read the CFE version is in the prom init () function. On my board it reads all zeros where it is expecting a CFE version number.
Is the board ID is held somewhere else in the flash. Does anyone have any ideas or test code I can compile up and try?

Thanks

Hello everyone,
following this thread with interest and stil have some questions on an USR9107 .

I think that compared to the USR9108 , it's identical, just no wifi.

Would the openwrt-96348GW-A-squashfs-bc300-cfe.bin work as well ? (I guess so:)
Is ADSL2+ support fully functional on that one ? (is the A before squashfs, synonym for Adsl?)
Also, less important, but can an USB stick be used as external storage  (I've seen some patches for USB recently).

Thanks!

96348GW-A is board Id, not synonym for adsl. No dsl drivers yet. So you probably can reflash 9107, but the ADSL modem will not work.

tx for the quick answer ! As I need adsl, I won't be able to use openwrt here sad

I thougt some dsl support was available with some binaries ?(not sure for which platform)

tx

Hi all,

I have a ADSL modem based on BCM6368.
Follows the console output.

I see that on the downloads site there is some firmware
like openwrt-8L-2M-8M-jffs2-*cfe.bin, but I didn't understand how to update the firmware via CFE.
I also recompiled latest OpenWRT trunk.

Can you help?

hello,
following fw_crocodile message (#326)

config switch eth1
    option vlan0 "0 1 2 5*"
    option vlan1 "3 5"

i've added vlan1 (eth1.1) and made port 3 as the new 'wan' interface. (renamed original 'wan' interface to 'adsl'; changed br-lan from using eth1 to eth1.0).
seems to work fine, eth1.1 gets an ip address from my cable modem - but i can browse only a small number of websites !
does anybody got a clue ?
thanks
avishay

ok, problem resolved.

added MTU settings to wan interface

config 'interface' 'wan'
        option 'ifname' 'eth1.1'
        option 'proto' 'dhcp'
        option 'mtu' '1492'

by default it was 1500.

also double-check that in firewall config you have mtu_fix enabled

config forwarding
        option src      lan
        option dest     wan
        option mtu_fix  1

regards

Hi all,

I have TP-LINK 8840 too.
How we can flash to it ?

My work is using a TP-Link TD-8840 ADSL modem, which is based on the BCM6338 v1.0 board. The firmware it comes inserts iptables rules that can only be gotten rid of manually, so we'd like to put OpenWRT on it. The boss has approved buying a second one and sending it to an OpenWRT developer - who should I contact to organise this?

Hi AndreyPopov,

The source code for the driver ADSL is not present in source code firmware netgear.

In source code are present only  "header files" and not the complete code!!!


Bye

You did not check it and say it fals.

Check it - you will be surprised. It containes not only headers. But not 100% of code

I've been told that with 2MB of flash it's not worth trying to port OpenWRT to it.
