In germany the Deutsche Telekom in co-operation with T-Online (their ISP part) is distributing a new Router DSL Modem Combo with WLan included.
Device is called Speedport W 500 V
It's a full featured device providing a DSL modem and a Router with WLan functionality.
Included to that, like the AVM FritzBox it also includes a mini pbx in the system. You have a connection to the phone line directly and the device provides two analog phone sockets. Through routing options in the menue one can configure if calls should either go out over Landline or a VoIP provider.
This little box could be ideal for an OpenWRT aswell.
So far I have not read anything on the OpenWRT forum regarding the device so I thought I should point it out.
Latest Firmware was just recently released, if anybody wants to take a look you can get it here (Firmware) and the documentation of what has changed is available here (change log in german).
So far all I am using it for is as a secondary AP in the apartement and paper weight. Haven't gotten around to opening it yet so there aren't any pictures of the board itself. If there is interest I will pop it open and snap some shots.
Also if anybody wanna give me a hand I will be delighted to help gather more info. Call me greenhorn when it comes to hardware hacking.
Well, that is it so far.
Just opened the firmware in a hex editor. At the top it says "Broadcom Corporation ver 2.0" and bit later i see "sqsh". Call me silly but that made me think file system.
