Topic: OpenWRT on BT Voyager 2091

The content of this topic has been archived on 24 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

Board: RTA1030W rev 1.0

BT's originals will flash fine:

http://www.voyager.bt.com/firmware_upgr … r_a2pb021g

Flashing Fails with the following Openwrt Images that i have tried:

http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/1 … fs-cfe.bin

http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/1 … fs-cfe.bin

Flashed and bricked it:

http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/1 … gr-cfe.bin

Currently all leds apart from the usb are on (wireless, ethernet,internet,dsl,power). Ethernet flashes when data is being transmitted, e.g ping 192.168.1.1 with the laptop using a static ip adress, 192.168.1.2:

ping 192.168.1.1
PING 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
From 192.168.1.2 icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable

Tried but cannot get an IP from the router, gets stuck at obtaining ip address.

The power LED stays red and does not become green like another bt voyager modem (different model) i have. They both have two colour power leds.

They both have a 4 pin header, i think it is a serial header. The pin voltages:

Pin 1: 3.28V with respect to pin 3
Pin 2: 3.28V with respect to pin 3
Pin 3: Lowest voltage, i think it is ground
Pin 4: 3.28V with respect to pin 3

What is the pin assignment? i think i only need rx and gnd to test right? I only have a USB to Serial TTL converter, its not a 3.3v version, can i convert the voltages? I have a 3.3 voltage regulated output can i use some mosfets or something to make it work?

There is no ouput on the serial port from the bt voyager 2091, I have another bt voyager  and i connected to its serial port and i got a boot log from it, it even said "D%G - Power failure detected. ADSL Link down." when i powered it down.

If anyone know how i can recover the bt voyager 2091 it would be great.

However netcat doesn't receive anything on port 4919 but is this just a linksys wrt54g* feature?

I think my USB to serial TTL cable is defective or broken. It sometimes gave garbled output on the working router and sometimes didn't work at all. The TTL voltages are ok since i only connected the RX and GND on the USB to TTL device to the TX and GND on the router. I will buy a cable and get this to work. I will also see if i can get a different (easier to work with) openwrt router

Its alive!!!

Now i've just got to fix that

There is no way that is one second, its more like half a second if you ask me

How do i do this?


==== Press space key to stop auto run (1 seconds) ====

Does minicom do two way communication? nothing happens when i press space. The output voltage of the TX pin on my USB to serial device is 3.3V

question

how did you flash it and brick it becouse im trying to flash it and see if i have any luck then we can share infomation.

The first thing to do is to connect to the serial port inside it and see what the board is, which is what i didn't do, once you know what the board is then you need to pick the image and upload it through the web interface or tftp.

I still don't know how well this router is supported, i can't find it in any of the supported hardware tables, and i haven't found the mailing lists either where these things are discussed.

I correctly connected to the serial with a DKU-5 Cable and it still does not send characters over minicom, is this a config issue?

I connected one the two usb to serial devices together and i could see on ttyUSB1 what i was typing on ttyUSB0 so its transmitting correctly but the modem isn't receiving it.

Can anyone help?

Does the BT Voyager need some modifications for it to work correctly?

Just to clarify, talk talk disconnected customers who refused to either pay more for the service or switch the line rental to them also. And this message was about being reconnected by my new isp and not having to tether my phone.

Is it really the original Board ID? Then how did you brick it when you uploaded the openwrt-V2091_BB-squashfs-btvgr-cfe.bin to the V2091 or should the cfe version be flashed from CFE?
