ECI B-FOCuS + OpenWrt


Is it possible to install OpenWrt to ECI B-FOCuS?


Hardware details will be necessary to answer this question:

Open the case and locate:

  • model of CPU
  • model of memory chip(s)
  • model of Switch Chip
  • model of WiFi Chips
  • access to serial port

I hope this helps:

And my router has no any serial or USB ports. There are 2xRJ-11, 4xRJ-45, 1xPower and 1xOptical (in) ports only :frowning:

Full review of the same device (old but gold).

Incorrect, this is likely the serial port:

Also, these don't appear to be your pictures.

Yes - these photos are mine but not pictures from review, you are right.
And yes - in my device there is one 5-pin connector too (I really didn't knew it is SERIAL, sorry for that):



So my device is not compatible with OpenWrt? :frowning:

It is not in the Table of Hardware, therefore, it is not. The key is if the CPU, Switch and WiFi models are already supported by OpenWrt - then it can be ported over to be supported. You will have to assist with that. Do you have 3 Volt Serial TTL to read the console port from boot up?

(Moving this thread to the For Developers section in hopes others will see and also assist with this.)

You mean something like that?

If yes - no, I don't have this one. Should I to buy it or create it by myself?

Ummmm....I don't think so...

  • normal serial is 5 Volts and can damage your device
  • USB is not the same as Serial
  • most serials on routers are 3 Volt TTL
