Devolo WiFi pro 1750e / EDIMAX Pro WAP1750 / Acelink EW-7679WAC

I'd like to test it too, but still not available is it?

Hi Rednag,

I can send you a copy of the firmware I've compiled via PM or you can wait for the patch to be accepted and download the official snapshot.

Hi All,

I've added the Device Techdata and Device Page to the wiki, in case anyone would like to contribute.

It also looks like Devolo have taken down the original firmware from their device download page. if anyone downloaded the original could you share it? I didn't save a copy.

Django

I can provide you with delos firmware for the 1200{e,i} and 1750i. 1200e should also run on the 1750e, however the additional buttons will most likely not work.

If it is supported, then with which commit has support been added?
And where is the link to the snapshot image?

Thanks but I found a mirror for the firmware here but could do with a sha256sum from the original to check it's authenticity.

Apologies, I removed the "snapshot" supported status from the wiki pages. Any ideas why the hardware table isn't showing up?

Does removing "Versions=" help?

Yes that worked, many thanks!

The firmware from your link is the same I got before. The sha256sum is b23440d0d6460b0b80006243e3840b9a1f75cb28da995516f417ce2eab5e44a3.

I also still have the gpl sources, that were published by devolo before. If there is interest I can upload these, too.

Hi All,

The patch was kindly reviewed and committed by Mathias Kresin. Updated the wiki entries as such, look forward to testing the snapshot firmware soon.

Cheers,

Yes indeed it is :slight_smile:

FYI, the firmware has been built and can now be downloaded: openwrt-ath79-generic-devolo_dvl1750e-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin.

I hope to get some time to test it tomorrow.

I'm getting the error

Image doesn't have a checksum.
Image check 'platform_check_image' failed.

are there different versions of the 1750e?

Are you sure you used the -F flag with sysupgrade? The error should only occur in case this flag is missing.

Hello,

I have been using my Devolo WiFi pro 1750e with this build for some time now and did not have any problems. Last week I read about the new OpenWrt 19.07 relase ans was curious if I could install this new version?

Thanks,
Sascha

See https://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/19.07-SNAPSHOT/targets/ath79/generic/

Thanks for your quick replay. I see this is a SNAPSHOT release without LuCI installed, so I will wait until there is a stable release.

Thanks,
Sascha

Release-snapshots do come with LuCI.
Only snapshots of master do not come with LuCI.

Is there also a flashable image for the Edimax Pro WAP1750. I get the error: "The file is not compatible with your firmware." when i try to flash the bin "openwrt-19.07.0-ath79-generic-devolo_dvl1750e-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin" over the webgui

I want to change from stock rom to the openwrt 19.07

thanks
