The content of this topic has been archived between 15 Apr 2018 and 25 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

Here is photo of board. Please note console header pins were soldered at J2.

and here is a photo of the cover showing the location of the screw holes for securing the cover the the bottom case. They are covered over with a layer of plastic and should be locatable with the use of a pin or point object.

Console pins are at J2. I had to solder on the pin header. Pin holes were open and not soldered over.
Console pin layout to the best of my knowledge --- If I'm wrong please let me know to correct.
pin 1 Power  ---- its a square pin
pin 2 Tx
pin 3 Rcv
pin 4 Gnd


Here is the console boot code.

Progress to date:

1.   Downloaded open source from Belkin and rebuild factory firmware and flashed router.

2.   Modified busybox and linux .config file in the factory tree adding telnetd

3.   Flashed router and enabled telnetd on the running system

Now some details

Building the firmware:

Downloaded the source code from Belkin at this site:

https://www.belkin.com/support/opensource/

Two tar balls are available releases 2.01.06 and 2.01.07.
Production release is 2.01.06

These tar balls come with configuration files and the build was fairly easy. I created a virtual machine for my build using sun's virtualbox. Unpacked the tar bar into the "/" partition as instructed. Build required following fixes to run to completion. The "make" will find them for you.


modified sumversion.c  added a missing include
      /linux/scripts/mod/sumversion.c
      10a11
      > #include <limits.h>

changed HOSTCFLAGS  and CFLAGS in the linux/Makefile   allowed warning messages on compile

      197c197
      < HOSTCFLAGS = -Werror -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer
      > HOSTCFLAGS = -Wall -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer
      312c312
      < CFLAGS := -Wall -Wundef -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs \
      > CFLAGS := -Wall -Wundef -Wno-trigraphs \


An extraneous "-e" was added to the bb_config.h file. Deleted these characters from line 1.

Flashing the router:

The firmware file is passed to the router by TFTP. You will need to install and configure a tftpd server

aptitude install tftpd-hpa

After a successful build the /Belkin_F5D8235-4_v2000_v2.01.06/images contains the following files

F5D8235v2_WW_2.01.06.bin
firmware.bin
linux_uImage
romfs.sqsh.lzma
zImage.lzma

The firmware.bin file is a trx file. The F5D8235v2_WW_2.01.06.bin is the same as the firmware.bin but has 19 bytes of additional identifier information prepended to the start of the file.

copy the firmware.bin file to the tftpd-hpa server directory (/var/lib/tftpboot on ubuntu) 

The router uses the das boot(uboot). The following menu is presented during boot and you have 1 second to enter a value.

Please choose the operation:
   1: Load system code to SDRAM via TFTP.
   2: Load system code then write to Flash via TFTP.
   3: Boot system code via Flash (default).
   4: Entr boot command line interface.
   9: Load Boot Loader code then write to Flash via TFTP.

I used option 1 extensively to test if the kernel runs.

When it works I use option 2 to write the new firmware.

Adding Telnetd

Modified .config file for busybox I used the "make menuconfig" tool

< # CONFIG_TELNETD is not set
---
> CONFIG_TELNETD=y

Linux kernel needed no changes to .config

After router boot the following commands needed to be entered to activate the telnet daemon

mkdir /dev/pts
mount -t devpts none /dev/pts
telnetd

execute passwd command to give root a password otherwise root cannot login.

Success at installing Openwrt Linux on Belkin router

Only Linux is installed ---- the AP and  switch software are not included. I performed the following steps

Checked out the most current development branch

 
svn co svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk/

This openwrt topic provided the necessary documentation at getting openwrt linux on my machine

https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=21782


obtained a .config file provided by openwrt user olecam

http://olecam.online.fr/dir-300-b2/rt305x.config

copied the above .config file to trunk/

executed following code

make menuconfig                # no changes but did a save
make

used following firmware file for flashing:   ../trunk/bin/openwrt-ramips-uImage-initramfs.bin

this is the boot code:

Successful installation of fonera 2.0n software

Whats not working:
Can NOT talk to the br-lan device or the RA0 ( wireless device). This is what I'll work on next. Fully functioning linux system exist; the network device can be seen --- both the LAN and WLAN (wireless) but are not functional!!

Procedure:

I just finished flashing the router with fonera 2.0n software. This software is a version of  openwrt and is discussed on these forums. I obtained the lead from comments made by "aport" in this forum  https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=21782.

fonera2n software:
http://trac.fonosfera.org/fon-ng

I followed the instructions ---- obtained  a svn version of the software and running install.sh script after download.

Two configurations changes required to generate the software.

1.     
        cd trunk/openwrt/
        make menuconfig
        # change the target system to the La Fonera2.0n
        # the La Fonera2.0n router is based on the RT3052F (ralink) chip set
        Target System ---------------> La Fonera2.0n
         # save the config

2.    make kernel_menuconfig
       # this brings up the config menu for the kernel that will be run on the router
       # it is currently configured for a 64M of DRAM Belkin has  only has 32M
       # failure to change this item causes memory failures and BRICKED routers as reported in
       # this thread  https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=21782.
      Target System -------------------> La Fonera2.0n -------------> Dram Size 32M
       # save configuration

make

        # this is a big build and takes along time 45min - 60 mins depends on your hardware

Test out the software by using u-boot option 1

When ready burn it using u-boot option 2

herbswanson did you've managed to compile the ralink_gpio suport using the fonera2n sources?
For me it's giving this error:

drivers/built-in.o: In function `read_zero':
drivers/char/mem.c:713: multiple definition of `info'
arch/mips/rt2880/built-in.o:arch/mips/rt2880/printf.c:56: first defined here
make[5]: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

I need those gpio pins so I can control the leds and receive events when buttons are pressed on the boards.

Note: I've fixed the above error by renaming the info structure from ralink_gpio.c

ralink_gpio_reg_info info;

I stil need to figure out how to control the leds and get events from buttons in hotplug2.

Hi,

I have a Fonera 2.0n, i wanted to install openwrt. I have read that the firmware is functional, bur the wifi not sad
Is the wifi working now?

Thanks

hi mtelleria

You should have no problem if you indeed have the actual Fonera 2.0n hardware. The Fonera hardware already is running a version of openwrt. Its a 2.6.21 kernel,  you can download all the software from their site http://trac.fonosfera.org/fon-ng. You can then perform a build and perform your own modifications. I perceive that your challenge is going to be upgrading to a more current kernel that the 2.6.21. The ralink software has been included in the kernel since 2.6.24. In the 2.6.21 kernel the ralink drivers were a separate package. The drivers have advanced since 2.6.21 and the base code for the Fonera software may require many changes.

My situation is somewhat different. I have a board that has the same base chip as the fonera, (the SoC ralink 3052) and I am attempting to use the Fonera openwrt software on my unique Belkin board. In my case the ralink 3052 chip is seen and recognized by the fonera software but I have a unique gigabit switch (realtek rtl8366rb chip) that does not yet allow me to get to the lan or the wireless devices. Another path that I am following in using the latest svn software from openwrt and to use the recently included (in the kernel)  ralink drivers. The fonera software is providing me a guide as to what needs to be done. 

I hope this helps.
Regards

Herb Swanson

Hi herbswanson,

Thanks a lot for your reply. I will try to build the firmware.

Regards

Hello herbswanson,

thanks a lot for your posting, I have the same Router except the Version, my Router is V1 not V2 like yours, so I use the latest V1 open source firmware 1.01.24 from https://www.belkin.com/support/opensource/. Does anybody may know the differences between V1 and V2?

Now I like to build and flash the router with this open source firmware, the same way you did it, but I m totally new in this stuff, so may you could answer me a few questions?

An extraneous "-e" was added to the bb_config.h file. Deleted these characters from line 1.

Why is this necessary? I was able to build it with suse 11.1 after adding gcc over rpm, only in ubuntu it does always stop at the busybox for some syntax errors?
But there a few warnings durning the make process, do i have to car about them?


3./ Flashing with tfpd-hpa

herbswanson wrote:

aptitude install tftpd-hpa

After a successful build the /Belkin_F5D8235-4_v2000_v2.01.06/images contains the following files

F5D8235v2_WW_2.01.06.bin
firmware.bin
linux_uImage
romfs.sqsh.lzma
zImage.lzma

The firmware.bin file is a trx file. The F5D8235v2_WW_2.01.06.bin is the same as the firmware.bin but has 19 bytes of additional identifier information prepended to the start of the file.

copy the firmware.bin file to the tftpd-hpa server directory (/var/lib/tftpboot on ubuntu)

The router uses the das boot(uboot). The following menu is presented during boot and you have 1 second to enter a value.

Please choose the operation:
   1: Load system code to SDRAM via TFTP.
   2: Load system code then write to Flash via TFTP.
   3: Boot system code via Flash (default).
   4: Entr boot command line interface.
   9: Load Boot Loader code then write to Flash via TFTP.

I used option 1 extensively to test if the kernel runs.

How does it work with an TFTP Server to transfer the firmware, in the guides the only talk about a tftp client and a put command?
How can you display this boot menu, and how can you choose this options?

If I build the open source package, it also builds a uboot.bin after building the firmware to an other folder, do i need to update this too, and how can i flash the boot menu?



I hope you can help me, thanks a lot

Boot Sequence and Serial console
The first thing I did was open the case, find where the console connection was located and soldered in a 4 pin header. Once I had the 4 pin header soldered in, I build a console cable using a ca-42. You can purchase the ca-42 cable online for about $4.00. As to how to build the cable (its a usb to serial connection) it best to google or youtube. Mostly you cutoff the non-usb end, expose the wires and attach them to the pins. Some soldering and building connectors is required. This was how I was able to obtain the boot sequence.

reference to someone else building a console cable
https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=22620

Once you have serial console working
Uboot give you 1 second to enter a menu value from the serial console on power up, otherwise it defaults to factory boot from flash. Enter a numeric 4 initially, this takes you to the Uboot command line and you can look at the environmental variable, memory, request tftp files, modify the defaults etc.

Modification to gcc parms
The code I downloaded failed on compile on warning error message due to "-Werror -Wstrict-prototypes". I removed these option to accept warning messages on compile.

TFTP
You need to get to the Uboot Menu via the serial console to request the tftp download. The Uboot program has several option to download software via tftp. Thus once you have your serial console working and have the Uboot menu up you will neet your tftp server to serve over your firmware.

uboot.bin is the default file name that Uboot is looking to obtain from the tftp server. This can be changed once you get to the Uboot command line.

Hi herb,

on your second post, i followed the process of downloading the 2.01.07 firmware (this being the latest in GPL download of belkin). I did make the change in the files suggested, but not able to generate the standard binary. I am on VM having Ubuntu 9.10 desktop edition. Below is the list of messages and seems like it was compiling the source for samba. Not sure how to bypass this or make this work.

Also, can the firmware that would get generated if passed across this point be uploaded through the web interface of the router. Also, how did you initialize the uboot console and logged into the console.

Thanks,
Ashish

ashishjain77

You have 'C' compile errors. You need to review and modify the smbd/chgpasswd.c program. From the error messages they appear fairly easy to correct. A prototype for the function change_oem_password needs to be added, and when it is called at line 911 of  program smbd/chgpasswd.c the data that is passed is cast properly. I've had to do the same for other programs. I'm not sure as to why this occurs but my guess is that we have a mix of newer code we download off the web (in the makeconfig process) and the older software downloaded from the vendor. Definition have been added or deleted from a common 'c' or 'h' file. If your not a 'c' person just ask one of your friends, any intermediate level 'c' person should be able to help.

I got to the uboot console by opening the belkin case, soldering pin headers onto to the console pins at j2, and building a console cable. In my prior post to skyone I go into more detail and provide a web link on building the cable.

I've have not tried to upload my modified software via the web interface but I assume it would work. You would probably need to ensure that you use the .bin file that contains the 19 bytes of additional version information. This is produced in the build. However if it does not boot correctly you may bricked your router and still need to add a console cable to reload from uboot.

Herb Swasnon

I picked up one of these for use on a robot. I got the stock firmware to compile, but I can't seem to get the .bin file to tftp to the router. I timeout wtih tftp and get an error message saying

source port mismatch, check bypassedtimeout: retrying...

with atftp. I have no idea what is going wrong. The router and computer can ping each other and I get a message when the router times out waiting that prints back my computer's MAC address so I know ARP must be working. I have all my firewalls disables and the network manager is off. I don't see why this isn't working. Is anyone else having this problem and how did you fix it if you are?

thanks in advance

EDIT:  I realize what I did wrong. I needed to be using a tftp server rather than trying to use tftp put. I am coming from ddwrt where everything is done with clients instead of servers. Sorry

I compiled the stock firmware and a version of my own with an upgraded version of busybox and wireless tools upgraded. Whenever I boot with option 1, my firmware boots and then hits a point where it says RESET BUTTON and then reboots shortly. I did not press the button and I know it isn't stuck down because it will reboot fine after that. I have no clue where to even start looking for this problem. Below is a copy of what my terminal says.

Did anyone else have this problem. Did you every get the wireless working with openWRT? If so, I would probably change.

Hi all,

My first post on this board. I have a router like Herb's (Belkin F5D8235-4) and am going to try to get the fonera firmware running on it as well. I do have a couple of questions though, since I'm not familiar with embedded applications:

- When I do a make kernel_menuconfig on the svn trunk, I don't have the option to set the RAM size. I checked the .config file, no RAM option present either. Is this something no longer needed (as in autodetected for instance)?
- If I testrun the firmware image, is there also risk of bricking the router (say because of the above maybe), or can I only brick it when I put it onto the flash memory?
- Herb: to open the router (I still have to attach the serial link) you removed 2 screws. I don't have holes in those locations - did you drill them to get to the screws? I want to limit breakage to the case as much as possible).

FYI: I'm doing this on an Arch GNU/Linux installation.

Thanks in advance already, and I'll keep everyone posted here with any progress I make. I noticed my build just failed so I'm gonna check that out and get back.

- Michael

What version do you have. Look on the bottom and there will be either a V1xxx or V2xxx. I know V1 is a little different. In the V2's anyway, the screws are under the front cover. The cover is some kind of sticky backed vynal I believe, so you can not feel the screws under it. I would suggest just pulling the cover back. Take a thin blade knife and peal up one of the corners. Keep pulling until you see the screw and repeat on the other end.

hope this helps

It's a V2000 I believe. Thanks for the hints, I still didn't get around to it because of real life issues, but hope to be able to somewhere next month.

- Michael

on ubuntu 10.04LTS desktop 32bit, using the 2.01.07 firmware source code (as described above) for v2xxx hardware
full how to compile this: http://sleclire.blogspot.com/2010/09/co … elkin.html
EDIT7: I did do these before all that follows:

I created a virtual machine for my build using sun's virtualbox. Unpacked the tar bar into the "/" partition as instructed. Build required following fixes to run to completion. The "make" will find them for you.


modified sumversion.c  added a missing include
      /linux/scripts/mod/sumversion.c
      10a11
      > #include <limits.h>

changed HOSTCFLAGS  and CFLAGS in the linux/Makefile   allowed warning messages on compile

      197c197
      < HOSTCFLAGS = -Werror -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer
      > HOSTCFLAGS = -Wall -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer
      312c312
      < CFLAGS := -Wall -Wundef -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs \
      > CFLAGS := -Wall -Wundef -Wno-trigraphs \

EDIT3: so my fix to that is to leave it as is (with the "-e") and replace the /bin/sh symlink on your system which points to /bin/dash and make it point to /bin/bash  so all the future -e issues would be solved (no need to read below, unless you want the details)

# line 321
@echo -e "#ifndef BB_CONFIG_H\n#define BB_CONFIG_H" > $@
# change to
@echo "#ifndef BB_CONFIG_H\n#define BB_CONFIG_H" > $@

I found the problem with this, with ubuntu (currently 10.04LTS) as described here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DashAsBinSh the /bin/sh shell is a link to dash which doesn't know "echo -e" However before this dash becoming /bin/sh, the /bin/sh was a link to /bin/bash which knows "echo -e"
in detail:

root@john-desktop:~# mkdir 3
root@john-desktop:~# cd 3
root@john-desktop:~/3# type sh
sh is hashed (/bin/sh)
root@john-desktop:~/3# ls -l /bin/sh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2010-08-29 06:03 /bin/sh -> dash
root@john-desktop:~/3# sh
# echo -e "1\n2"
-e 1
2
# 
root@john-desktop:~/3# ln -s /bin/bash sh
root@john-desktop:~/3# ./sh
sh-4.1# echo -e "1\n2"
1
2
sh-4.1# exit
root@john-desktop:~/3#

So, bash acting like sh accepts echo -e, but dash acting like sh doesn't and instead it echoes "-e " too

Now, could someone tell me how to regenerate the include/bb_config.h file please (EDIT2: make menuconfig then exit with save and do a make)
I tried the make menuconfig (I wonder if that's the way) however I got an error message probably the same dash issue but says I'm missing ncurses which I think it's installed by default

make -C scripts/config ncurses conf mconf
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/john/2/Belkin_F5D8235-4_v2000_v2.01.07/user/busybox/scripts/config'
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lncurses
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
-e 
>> Unable to find the Ncurses libraries.
>>
>> You must have Ncurses installed in order
>> to use 'make menuconfig'

make[2]: *** [ncurses] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/john/2/Belkin_F5D8235-4_v2000_v2.01.07/user/busybox/scripts/config'

make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2
root@john-desktop:~/2/Belkin_F5D8235-4_v2000_v2.01.07/user/busybox#

as you can see there's an "-e" there, so I'll have to replace the /bin/sh symlink to point to /bin/bash just to make sure other echo -e out there don't mess up, since there's no SHELL= in the Makefile, it uses /bin/sh I assume although my SHELL is /bin/bash in terminal

EDIT: so I needed an

apt-get install libncurses-dev

anyway though the -e dissapeared
I did an exit and save but the include/bb_config.h didn't get auto generated, I'm guessing I need ./configure or something which doesn't exist in current folder
EDIT2: nevermind I forgot to do a make, EDIT4: note that I was in the ./user/busybox/ folder while doing make menuconfig and make

By the way, if you're using /bin/bash as /bin/sh instead of /bin/dash then echo "1\n2" won't work as with dash, meaning you'll have to edit the Makefile again and add the "-e" back, or it won't show "1" on one line and "2" on the next line, instead it'll just show "1\n2" on one line - where \n is interpreted as the new line
To summarize:
echo -e "1\n2" works well on bash or a symlink sh pointing to bash, but it doesn't work well with dash or a symlink sh pointing to dash because it shows an extra "-e"
echo "1\n2" doesn't work on bash or a symlink sh pointing to bash in the sense that there won't be interpretation of \n However it works well on dash or on a symlink named sh pointing to dash in the sense that there will be two lines - interpretation of backslash escapes occurs

=================================================================
EDIT5: continued doing make from the normal folder

dos2unix /home/john/2/Belkin_F5D8235-4_v2000_v2.01.07/romfs/www/*.htm
/bin/sh: dos2unix: command not found

got that error so I had to

sudo apt-get install tofrodos
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/todos /usr/bin/unix2dos
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/fromdos /usr/bin/dos2unix

EDIT6: hit another error

due to non-existance of that lib version on ubuntu 10.04 here I had to get it from one of the mirrors here http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/i386/ … 5/download

the entire folder after compile was 925MB
I cannot test this on my router due to not having a cable and not having the router opened, but I'm currently running 2.01.08 which is not yet available as source code but I'm hoping they will update soon
source should be here: https://www.belkin.com/support/opensource/
firmware bin is here: http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/ans … /304/p/336

now comparing the just compiled firmware bin file (size 6,385,683 bytes)
459b3a4f270c4ce7fbae8a6fddb24556  F5D8235v2_WW_2.01.07.bin

abfcc818e0cca1d5750d92dd9e22ee29 *f5d8235v2_ww_2.01.07.bin

I can say different md5sum which means different contents which I'm guessing it's not good
Ok ok, nevermind, so I'm guessing since they are compressed images that they somehow compressed differently? so they can be different because of that - still, not sure about this...

UPDATE: Note on port 10101/tcp: "bkserver process listens to port 10101, the process is used for router quick setup procedure from Belkin's installation CD." (found that here: http://www.seattlewireless.net/Belkin_F5D7230-4 )
I used wireshark software to sniff the packets while running setupassistant.exe from belkin CD that came with the router. And I had to choose  UK or else it wouldn't do the checks(maybe it was trying on a different network than 192.168.2.1) and so I saw that it communicated with the router on router port tcp 10101 and it can get/set administrative stuffs even while I had a password set in the webinterface(port 80). And if this port gets closed due to port scanning or maybe when I tried to 'nc' or telnet to it, it will reopen upon router reboot.

OLD stuff: port 10101/tcp is open, does anyone know why? and for what? is it in use by Setup Assistant or does it use the web port 80/tcp instead to configure the router first time ? meantime I contacted a Support Assistant (that's a person that you can chat with online on belkin's site) and they know nothing about ports being open other than http ports, they said. I'll contact customer service next...

Could you maybe, herbswanson, check with a netstat -pant (assuming it's available) to see which program has that port open on router? assuming you still have the router flashed with the original belkin firmware with telnet on
And by the way herb, big thank yous and greets go your way for the amazing tutorial you made here in these posts!
UPDATE: I found some post somewhere ok here http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,12908414 it's not the same type of router but it's a belkin, and you can see the open port
tcp        0      0 192.168.1.253:10101     *:*                     LISTEN
34 root         20 S   bkserver
and I guess netstat (symlink to busybox ?) didn't know the -p switch to show which program had that port opened (I wonder if it can be selected in make menuconfig)

On another note, I realized that I don't need the modified CA-42 nokia cable which is usb to serial cable, instead I can just use my serial port on my PC to connect to the router(WRONG: "Levels are not RS232 voltage levels, but +3.3V TTL logic. Use an interface converter chip (Max232/Max3232/DS275 etc.) to connect to standard RS-232. "), as soon as I figure out the pins and I guess it's supposed to be wired just like a null modem cable with RX from one side to TX on the other side and also with TX on one side to the RX on the other side , in other words RX/TX wires swapped on route to the router. And could anyone confirm that the voltages are the same? maybe 3.3 volts? so there's no need for 5v to 3.3v shifter as with the CA42 cable UPDATE: got some good info here http://wiki.openwrt.org/oldwiki/openwrt … al_console
more info about serial to serial http://www.beyondlogic.org/serial/serial.htm
UPDATE: so as I understand it RS-232 aka com port on the PC side can do like +-12V which would be bad to directly connect to router's J2 without "an interface converter chip (Max232/Max3232/DS275 etc.)" to reduce the voltage - else I may brick the router's serial port at least heh

Serial RS-232 (V.24) communication works with voltages (between -15V ... -3V are used to transmit a binary '1' and +3V ... +15V to transmit a binary '0') which are not compatible with today's computer logic voltages. On the other hand, classic TTL computer logic operates between 0V ... +5V (roughly 0V ... +0.8V referred to as low for binary '0', +2V ... +5V for high binary '1' ). Modern low-power logic operates in the range of 0V ... +3.3V or even lower.

So, the maximum RS-232 signal levels are far too high for today's computer logic electronics, and the negative RS-232 voltage can't be grokked at all by the computer logic. Therefore, to receive serial data from an RS-232 interface the voltage has to be reduced, and the 0 and 1 voltage levels inverted. In the other direction (sending data from some logic over RS-232) the low logic voltage has to be "bumped up", and a negative voltage has to be generated, too.

     RS-232              TTL             Logic
-----------------------------------------------
-15V ...  -3V  <->  +2V ... +5V    <->  1
  +3V ... +15V  <->   0V ... +0.8V  <->  0

EDIT: About serving the firmware with a tftp server running on virtualbox and the router requesting it, Herb, how did you manage to port forward the udp port 69 on the virtualbox, so that the router could access it while your computer was connected to the router's lan port? I'm trying to test if it's opened right by having my router (when it works normally and it's on internet) port forward to my local computer the port 69, and on my computer I'm using Smart Port Forwarding program which says listen on localhost:69 and forward to the local IP of my eth3 interface inside virtualbox to port 69, udp (Type standard). However, while I can indeed detect from within virtualbox with watch -n 1 netstat -pant  that some external IP (where I'm ssh-ed to) is connected to my port here (ESTABLISHED), while using tftp my-inet-router-IP from an external location IP on the internet, to get the firmware.bin file (command: tftp IP then get firmware.bin) I get "Transfer timed out." I did test if port forwarding works well but with a tcp port and ssh or httpd server, so it works well for tcp. On virtualbox I tried both NAT and Host-Only adapter. And I even stopped my firewall (not the one on router -if any).
I can only try one thing, get a laptop and try to get the firmware from there, while both laptop and the computer with the virtualbox are connected to the router switch, and also make sure they're in the same network ie. 192.168.2.0/24

EDIT: I'm kind of getting a hint from here https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php … 589#p23589 "Please, don't waste our time with problems caused by other firmwares."
So I'm not sure if I should continue posting since I'm not talking about openwrt firmware (yet) although I may not be far from flashing it eventually, and I also have almost zero experience with fora (aka forums)

On another note, I found that accessing http://192.168.2.1/ver.htm  which is a hidden page (sort of, nothing links to it that is) you can see something like:

Check Firmware Header   :  1
Start telnetd for debug   :  0
Force dhcp to use this gateway   : 
[Apply]
Customer Firmware Version : 2.01.08
My Firmware Verion : 2.01.08 PPTP 2009_1119

So naturally I changed the telnetd to 1 and hit apply, it remained to 1 because as I figure it, it got written into nvram (which I'm also guessing it's powered by a battery? so it's not flash, it's like CMOS - update: ok I guess it's not, instead it's in flash too ie. in /dev/mtd4 anyway the utility called nvram can read/write there), so nothing happened no telnetd started because I'm guessing (and I explored the filesystem on 2.01.07 firmware that I compiled above) there is no telnetd anywhere in the filesystem but if it will be, it probably need to be a symlink to busybox and also made sure busybox was compiled with telnetd support (too lazy atm to check if it was or not and that then only the symlink would be missing)
UPDATE: confirmed to work on 2.01.07 firmware if you make menuconfig in user/busybox/ folder and select telnetd and the remake the whole firmware, and this ver.htm page allows you to enable/disable telnetd and also does a reboot for changes to take effect but beware it listens on all interfaces (tcp        0      0 :::23                   :::*                    LISTEN)
but as Herb said, you need to give root a password(even if empty) before you can login (don't yet know which script to edit for that, using the ca-42 on ttyS1 atm)
and also more importantly

mkdir /dev/pts
mount -t devpts none /dev/pts

those must be run before or after telnetd is run, and the autorunning above doesn't do all that - so I put them in user/sysinit/rc  script before "sysinit&" line. Now, I can't yet set the password for root except via serial console, but I can login as guest which has no password. It seems sysinit is creating the /tmp/shadow file with no password for root set, but empty pass for guest set! and /tmp is a ramfs
And in 2.01.07 telnetd will listen on all interfaces (if you mod busybox to include telnetd that is and also in ver.htm set it to 1) which means someone can log from WAN as guest.

used a CA-42 cable with XP Mode (VirtualPC) 'cause it was an ARK3116 chip which didn't have windows 7 64bit drivers, and virtualbox and vmware failed to work(with ubuntu and xp), so the win xp inside VirualPC works fine with those drivers.

Had a few bumps with tftp, because uboot was ignoring the ARP reply from my PC and kept asking ... and the solution was to unplug the router from power and hit ke "1" like mad while plugging the router, with the purpose of not allowing uboot to boot from flash and boot from tftp instead; if it did boot from flash, a "reboot" command and hitting "1" key would make uboot again ignore ARP until unplugged... you get the idea.

Failed to load 2.01.07 bin (after manually stripping the 19 bytes from the beginning of the original bin file from belkin's site) due to kernel panic and unable to mount root fs, and I was unable to (didn't know how to) give it root= param so it defaulted to /dev/mtdblock2 (Kernel command line: console=ttyS1,57600n8 root=/dev/mtdblock2) and didn't even know what root= param to give it when loaded from tftp, /dev/ram ? well I don't know where exactly would the rootfs from inside the bin  would be in ram ... anyway

I loaded 2.01.08 bin (without the first 19bytes of course) and it worked ok but for some reason it rebooted as soon as it almost loaded as I saw above in Herb's post when he flashed it, it also started it and rebooted ... I supposed it's some kind of safety measure ? to not remain in the firmware that you are testing from tftp (in my case since I chose option "1").
Is it supposed to reboot? How to disable autoreboot? (when using option "1") I didn't try to flash anything yet, but I wonder , after flashing will it reboot again? I figure not, but what makes it reboot ?

I'm thinking of flashing the 2.01.07 firmware via web interface and then try to boot the 2.01.07 bin from tftp and I'm guessing it will boot the rootfs (from flash) correctly (cause earlier it was 2.01.08 rootfs in flash, supposedly different format? not squashfs?)

I wonder, flashing the bin via web interface or whatever, does that also flash the uboot loader? I'm guessing not? because uboot.bin or whatever is not included inside the bin, right?

I wonder if ttyS1 is this serial, where is the ttyS0 physically on the board I mean, if any...

eventually I may try to flash openwrt but I need to understand things first smile

Rite now I'm kinda waiting for belkin to release the sources for 2.01.08 but meanwhile I may flash 2.01.07 and mess with the sources...
Is anyone interested in more progress reports? else I won't try to post again unless I've some questions
Peace.

I've noticed some strange behavior.
I am receiving extra packets near the normal download traffic, these packets seem to be the normal download traffic encapsulated in Ethernet II frames protocol 0x8899 (realtek layer 2 protocol - unavailable but apparently it adds 4 extra bytes 0x8899 and 0xA200 and some padding[at least that's what I saw for an arp-reply packet padded to 64 bytes(includes +4) from 42 original bytes).

Basically if you have a 10Mbps NIC in full-duplex mode, you can only download with a max of 5Mbps, because the router sends those 5Mbps and another 5Mbps extra (which are the first 5Mbs encapsulated) which equates with your 10Mbps.

Too many details you may find here: http://sites.google.com/site/sleclire/b … col-0x8899

So erm, not only your download speed is a maximum of half of what it should be, but if you put your interface in promisc mode (ie. wireshark with defaults capture) you are getting all traffic sent from internet-gateway's NIC (say iMAC) and the router's vlan2 interface (ie. WAN mac , say wMAC) - that's what those packets are: traffic from iMAC to wMAC which is encapsulated in 0x8899 protocol and also sent on all of 4 LAN ports.
If anyone knows what /bin/switch or /bin/rtl commands need to be given to set that switch to stop forwarding those, let me know smile
'cause for example, if you stop the router at uboot commandline (ie. choose option 4) then WAN and LAN ports act like a hub, you can connect a computer on wan port and one on any of LAN ports and you can ping each other, but as soon as the router enters in linux some commands are executed and the switch no longer acts like a hub or so.
these commands:

EDIT: so it's likely some kind of vlan tagging leaking

Herbswanson, DorianGrey, keep up the good work! I cannot help 'hacking', since I am just a user but I sincerely hope that the router will be able to host openwrt some day, since the factory-software is awkward.

If there is anything I can do speak up!

Hey Thomas. I didn't try openwrt yet, I am trying to understand what belkin does to init their hardware ie. the switch and others. For example I see uboot is doing some inits for this switch (RTL8366RB chip) and as I read somewhere openwrt may not support wireless and what other stuffs, although I am willing to try to make openwrt work(but not before understanding what current firmware does special when compared to standard/normal)

I'm posting my schematics for CA-42 cable to F5D8235-4 v2000 router that I used to get console access. (huge png pic, sorry?:P)

I am now kind of waiting for Belkin to release new firmware, they said so I should check for that in the next coming weeks. So maybe I won't try anything openwrt related. I am also reluctant to try openwrt because I believe it need to overwrite uboot and I can't risk it not being able to properly init network/console and thus me being unable to flash again.
Herb is probably doing something else, since his posts are about 1 year old now smile

I am posting all my findings and related info or mods whatever here: https://sites.google.com/site/sleclire/
or you can just google for "sleclire" [no quotes needed]

Indeed openwrt would be nice, so if anyone from openwrt wants me to test something or so, let me know... as long as it doesn't involve flashing uboot yet(unless I'm sure it will not brick).

So far the most annoying issue is the one in my previous post, with the download traffic. I haven't yet checked what makes the router send extra traffic on LAN ports which shouldn't be sent to those and how to make it stop spamming like that, effectively reducing the download speed of any client to half(less than half) of the NIC's down link speed. So maybe they will fix this in next firmware or not, still awaiting their answer.

I still have to look into what vlans are  ie. vlan1 and vlan2 on router, some virtual LANs or so, no idea how exactly they work .. maybe these would explain how the above traffic situation happens.

Some belkin made binaries like sysinit that do most of the init and firewall stuff as I see inside the binary, are supplied in just binary format with no source code, which sort of makes sense, but this prevents me from knowing exactly what the firmware does extra..

Oh well..
