Topic: Amit WQS418 and OpenWRT- Does it work????

The content of this topic has been archived on 29 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

Hello OpenWRT TM,

I got an Digitus DN-7011( alias Amit Router WQS418 (

Here are the details:
CPU: Samsung ARM 0404
Switch: ICT IP175A,
Flash: AM 29LV160BD
Ram: GLT 5640L16-6TC

... and my question is, will openwrt work on this router and if so how can I flash it (it has a web-based
upgrade utility....

thanx a lot

Flashpart seems to be 1M x 16 and maybe 4M x 16 ram, but I am not sure...

Router has one WAN Port to connect an DSL-Modem, 4 LAN Ports, 1 USB 1.1 Port, 1 LPT Port

Found out a little more about the CPU its a Samsung S3C2510A10

Check the HRI project at the SMC2804WBR v1 uses the same CPU.


    The following integrated on-chip functions are described in detail in this user's manual:

    · 16/32-bit ARM940T RISC Embedded (ARM9)
    · 4K-byte I-Cache and 4K-byte D-Cache (instruction/data caches)

    · Memory Controller with 24-bit External Address Pins
    - 2 Banks of SDRAM for 16/32-bit Bus
    - 8 Banks of Flash/ROM/SRAM/External I/O for 8/16/32-bit Bus
    - One External Bus Master with Bus Request/Acknowledge Pins

    · Two 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Controllers

    · PCI Host/Agent Controller or CardBus (PCMCIA) Host/Agent Controller
    - PCI Host mode: 5 (or more) PCI Slots Interface for PCI Cards
    - PC Card Host mode: 1 PC Card Socket Interface for 16-bit PC Card or CardBus PC Card

    · AAL5 SAR and UTOPIA L1/L2 (*)
    · 2 Port Full/Low Speed USB HOST with Root Hub.
    · 1 Port Full Speed USB Function with Transceiver Spec. 1.1
    · Six General-Purpose DMAs
    · Two High-Speed UARTs
    · One Console UART
    · DES and 3DES for IP Security
    · IIC Serial Interface
    · Interrupt Controller
    · Six 32-bit Programmable Timers
    · 30-bit Watchdog Timer (**)

    · 64 Programmable I/O Ports
    - 8 General-Purpose I/O
    - 6 External Interrupt Request
    - 6 Timer Output
    - 4 External DMA Request
    - 4 External DMA Acknowledge
    - 21 SAR Signals
    - 15 UART Signals

    · Four PLLs for each ARM940T (166MHz), System (133MHz), PCI & PC Card Controller Clock (33/66MHz), USB Host/Device Clock (48MHz), and Ethernet PHY (20/25MHz).
    · CPU Operating Frequency: Up to 166MHz
    · AHB Bus Operating Frequency: Up to 133MHz
    · Package Type: 416 PBGA
    · Core Operating at 1.8V ±5 %, -40~85 oC
    · I/O Operating at 3.3V ±5 %, -40~85 oC
    · 3.3V input/output levels, 5V tolerant only for PCI.

(*) The Utopia (Universal Test & Operations PHY Interface for ATM) interface is defined by the ATM Forum to provide a standard interface between ATM devices and ATM PHY or SAR (segmentation and Re-assembly) devices.

(**) Resetea periodicamente el router. Esto es un incordio para importar uClinux. Tal y como viene en HRI:

The board has a 20 Pin (only 7 Pins seem to be really connected, rest is GND or NC) JTAG-Connector (maybe ARM9 type?), but the DSL-Modem is missing only Ethernet for external DSL-Modem sad

to Kaloz:

Hello Kaloz and thanks for your hint, I think many routers use this chipset , D-Link, 3COM, SMC, Digitus ...
OEM seems to be AMIT... But I got a another question, too, where can I find the JTAG layout for ARM9
CPUs it seems voltage is 3.3V but I need 5V for parallel port so I may need a voltage converter, but first
I need the pin-out/layout of the JTAG-connector. After that I will try to get linux running, but there are no
opensource drivers for ti tne1130 wlan card - and 2MB of flash is really NOT much. Kernal must be compressed
(VERY HIGH RATIO)..... Thanks a lot!


The discussion might have continued from here.
