Yeah. I tried failsafe mode on this router and it did not work because it seems none of the buttons are configured.

Could be costly if you mess up network settings and don't have serial access to bootloader ( CFE ), which I don't, currently.

Thank you and let us know when it is resolved and how we can apply it / use it ( maybe it already is built into the next images that will be released after Backfire ? ) !

Hi bulanula,

this is my parameter :

config 'system'

    option 'zonename' 'Europe/Rome'
    option 'timezone' 'CET-1CEST,M3.5.0,M10.5.0/3'
    option 'conloglevel' '7'
    option 'cronloglevel' '8'

config 'button'
    option 'button' 'reset'
    option 'action' 'released'
    option 'handler' 'firstboot && reboot'
    option 'min' '5'
    option 'max' '30'

config 'button'
    option 'button' 'reset'
    option 'action' 'released'
    option 'handler' 'reboot'
    option 'min' '5'
    option 'max' '10'

config 'led'
        option 'name' 'wifi-led'
        option 'trigger' 'netdev'
        option 'mode' 'link tx rx'

Hi all,
also on svn 30486 reset button works properly.
I did not put the file in / etc/hotplug.d/button/00-button. Sorry !!!

I've broadcom chipset an ASUS router. I want to install openwrt but I don't want to brick the modem too.

It has usb+ethernet support, an ADSL router.

I've read previous posts, mentioned adsl support not exists yet.

When will the adsl support will come or won't come?

never

Hi Guys,

i've really big problems to compile the firmware for the DG834Gv4.

I have change the files how aleixsr described in his post but it didnt work for me sad

I really dont know which firmware i should use from the /bin folder.

I've tried it with the DG834GT files but non of the three has worked(I've also merged the original firmware from Netgear with the openwrt image).

Is it possible that anyone should post a ready image that i just have to upload? Or a link to a detailed tutorial where all steps written down? The DG834Gv4 OpenWrt page didn't really help me ...


Thanks and have a nice day smile

Be careful.

I don't think DG834GT and DG834 are the same device. You might brick it !

@bulanula

I know(: After I merged the OpenWrt DG834GT file and the original firmware from Netgear with mkimage.sh, I uploaded the newimage.img with nftp...

It seems like everything was fine but the router didn't gave my pc a ip number and I couldn't connect to it. The same problem with a manual added ip at the pc.

Then I tried to upload the original firmware but nftp doesn't work anymore... Because of the magic header don't the same or something like that.

But no problem, after googling around for a while I found a costumized nftp source where the verification function was bypassed and with that version I was able to upload the original firmware and now the router works fine again (;

And I'm not really sure but I believe that I had read somewhere that the hardware from the DG834GT is basically the same like in the DG834Gv4.

Ps. Sry for my bad English but it's not my native language (;

Indeed. I also needed a custom NFTP because my router had a bootloader that is locked by SKY ( ISP in the UK ).

Can't really brick these devices if the bootloader is still intact. Would be good if you had JTAG in case the bootloader is messed up.

Blame on me ! big_smile

I really should wear my glasses big_smile I've rad something wrong and yes the DG834GT firmware from OpenWRT definitely was wrong.

Now I had tried it with 96348GWxxx.cfe and everything works fine now big_smile

@bulanula

I've lost the link for the edited nftp source code where the verification function was bypassed but I can post it here if you want.

@bulanula

Yeah that's the link I was talking about (;

A first step to a possible solution would be creating a new thread instead of hijacking a 4 year old (!) news announcement with random issues.

you are right...

hey.. Its really good. I have used this and its working fine. I can't expect before thanks for this!

So does the reset button work in 10.03.2 for the DG834GT ?

Maybe I should create a separate thread or ...

i run op on rg100a, old versions of op seems works well on it, but the latest versions have lots of bugs on the switch function..

I bulanula ,
reset button on DG834GT  works from SVN https://dev.openwrt.org/changeset/30820.

Thank you for letting me know.

So if I build from trunk then I will not have any problems entering failsafe mode etc.

@bulanula

You must manually add the following files :
I'll open another ticket to add those files

add in file /etc/config/system :

    config 'button'
            option 'button' 'reset'
            option 'action' 'released'
            option 'handler' 'firstboot && reboot'
            option 'min' '5'
            option 'max' '30'

create folder  :

    mkdir -p /etc/hotplug.d/button

create file /etc/hotplug.d/button/buttons

    #!/bin/sh

    logger $BUTTON
    logger $ACTION

create file /etc/hotplug.d/button/00-button

    . /etc/functions.sh
    do_button () {
            local button
            local action
            local handler
            local min
            local max

            config_get button $1 button
            config_get action $1 action
            config_get handler $1 handler
            config_get min $1 min
            config_get max $1 max

            [ "$ACTION" = "$action" -a "$BUTTON" = "$button" -a -n "$handler" ] && {
                    [ -z "$min" -o -z "$max" ] && eval $handler
                    [ -n "$min" -a -n "$max" ] && {
                            [ $min -le $SEEN -a $max -ge $SEEN ] && eval $handler
                    }
            }
    }

    config_load system
    config_foreach do_button button

How many to wait when there will be a support BCM6328?

yunima wrote:

config_get option $1 button
            config_get measures $1 action
            config_get owner $1 handler
            config_get min $1 min
            config_get max $1 max

Is this the right thing in the code above given by misteroX ?

Or just some spam about baby carriers ...

Why don't we provide the people who do inform themselves before they buy something with better information regarding the drivers of the different components?

Since OpenWrt intends to bring stuff upstream in the mainline kernel, is there a trick, what to look for when browsing the source code of OpenWrt:
https://dev.openwrt.org/browser
or the Linux kernel:
http://kernel.org/  Hmm, do they offer such a browse option?

Look here:
http://git.kernel.org/ e.g. for default kernel: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/g … git;a=tree

Hi

I am interested in about build linux router firmware. 1) How to understand wirless router hardware ? 2) How to download source code to build firmware?
