The content of this topic has been archived between 12 Sep 2015 and 15 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

Hi all,

Here is the latest sysupgrade image built from the stable Attitude Adjustment (12.09.1) branch from svn.

UPDATE: updated to latest revision (svn38971)

Attitude Adjustment (12.09.1) : openwrt-ramips-rt305x-rt-n13u-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin
Image Builder (12.09.1) : OpenWrt-ImageBuilder-ramips_rt305x-for-unknown-x86_64.tar.bz2
Patch: rt-n13u-AA.patch

Use tftp or Asus firmware restoration utility to flash the firmware.

The sysupgrade image includes following packages:

  • kmod-leds-gpio

  • kmod-rt2800-pci

  • kmod-usb-rt305x-dwc_otg

  • kmod-fs-ext4

  • kmod-fs-vfat

  • kmod-usb-storage

  • kmod-usb-acm

  • kmod-usb-serial-option

  • kmod-usb-printer

  • wpad-mini

  • wireless-tools

  • luci

  • luci-app-ddns

  • luci-app-qos

  • luci-proto-3g

  • luci-theme-bootstrap

You can install additional packages with opkg or using luci web interface. Go through the OpenWRT wiki for installation/configuration help.

http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/uci/wireless

Build Instructions:

If you want to build the image yourself, follow the instructions bellow:

  • install build dependencies (see wiki)

  • get the .config from the image builder

Then build like this:

> svn co svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/branches/attitude_adjustment
> cd attitude_adjustment
> patch -p0 < ../rt-n13u-AA.patch
> cp ../dot-config-from-imagebuilder
> make menuconfig
> ionice -c 3 nice -n19 make -j4 V=s

Adjust -j4 option to match with your CPU (mine is quadcore i7, so using 4 cores). After the build is complete you should see an image builder archive in a bin/rampis directory. Extract the image builder and issue following command:

make image \
    PROFILE="RT-N13U" \
    PACKAGES="kmod-leds-gpio kmod-rt2800-pci wpad-mini kmod-usb-rt305x-dwc_otg \
    kmod-fs-ext4 \
    kmod-fs-vfat \
    kmod-usb-storage \
    kmod-usb-acm \
    kmod-usb-serial-option \
    kmod-usb-printer \
    wireless-tools \
    luci \
    luci-app-ddns \
    luci-app-qos \
    luci-proto-3g \
    luci-theme-bootstrap \

A final openwrt-ramips-rt305x-rt-n13u-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin image is generated in current directory. You can add/remove packages as you wish.

Enjoy!

Yes. I myself testing on B1 revision only. BTW, the work has been accepted and applied to the trunk. You can now build it yourself from the trunk sources.

They are same but as I built the kernel with some different configuration the opkg complains about version mismatch. You can safely install them with --force-depends option.

The snapshot build now have n13u support smile

Enjoy!

No luck with the sysupgrade snapshot image. The device hangs after the upgrade.

Continue with my Attitude Adjustment build for stable experience. My router is running flawlessly.

Ok. I'm installing the packages with the force-depends option. The router looks working ok until now.

@amitg0123 Amit bhayya, I had this same router (Asus RT-N13u B1) running dd-wrt. After seeing this article (http://klseet.com/index.php/rt-n13u-b1), I got interest on Openwrt. So I flashed my router with your FW build (openwrt-ramips-rt305x-rt-n13u-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin)  using Asus FW restoration utility. Everything went well. I could SSH into router!!

But my WAN port doesn't work as it should. I'hv gone through Openwrt wiki to change ip address,gateway etc. I even tried changing parameters like VLAN, Interfaces in  '/etc/config/network' many times.  Nothing worked. Please help me....

Here is my network config file  (/etc/config/network) after adding WAN ip address details.

***************'WAN' NOT WORKING****************

    option ifname 'lo'
    option proto 'static'
    option ipaddr '127.0.0.1'

have the same problem. but my wan is pppoe. tcpdump didn't see any PADO packets on my eth0.2 interface from provider ;(

Finally, I made it. OpenWRT on ASUS RT-N13u B1 working fine. Only thing is, after flashing, login(telnet) to router though LAN at first time, assign ip addresses to required interfaces. Activate WIFI by changing '/etc/config/wireless'. Then login to ISP web based interface via WIFI  and make sure you can ping google.com (for example).

At first, I couldn't get to ISP login form through my system connected to LAN port & even ping to my ISP gateway failed. So  I thought that WAN port was not working. Actually it works!!! Also no need to configure VLAN, they are working fine, by default.


Proceed according to the guide www.klseet.com/index.php/rt-n13u-b1 It is awesome smile Now you can install LUCI web interface and all other goodies you want.

Enjoy smile

cvkjay, thanks for advise, but I already installed and configured couple of OpenWrt devices. problem only with RT-N13U.

my configuration more complex than yours. wink
ISP provide VLANs for services, VID 1616 for IPTV, VID 2626 for SIP, and Untagged for PPPoE (Internet).

I have configured forwarding vlan 1616 from tagged WAN interface to untagged port3 - STB works fine.
But PPPoE didn't work neither on eth0 nor on eth0.1 sad

@mmalchuk I just posted the image builder for AA rc1. You can find the config (.config) inside the tarball.

I used https://www.dropbox.com/s/sd9yduibpg7h5 … pgrade.bin
Downloaded the bin file. And Flashed it successfully using Asus restoration tool. I had ddwrt installed prior.
I could telnet and then SSH fine. Everything was working as it should. WAN + LAN. Didnt check WiFi. But the moment I tried to install Luci. I had a lot of collected errors. I believe they were due to the kernel mismatch. So I used the --force-depends option. But once installation was complete... it still had the same Collected errors. And my Router boots up, but I can no longer connect to it via telnet / SSH and it just hangs. This only happens after I try and install Luci. This is my first time venturing into Open Wrt any help is much appreciated!

Hi amitg0123.

I am using ASUS RTN-13U B1 Router. Can you give me full procedure to install your community release of Openwrt FW.

@amitg0123 or to the forum: the above location does not have any rt305x images, which one can be installed then?

I have updated the first post. The official snapshot build doesn't work yet.

Cannot figure out how and what to do after flashing. WAN is not working. Also I am not able to understand what cvkjay said above. Please help me someone. sad
