Help about COMFAST CF-E120A v3


#1

Hi guys,

I read that this CPE is supported.

https://openwrt.org/toh/comfast/cf-e120a

Cannot find which Openwrt image i shall download and install via the Web gui ??


#2

It seems that the device is not actually supported within the OpenWrt project.


#3

I see some cf-exxx builds in ar71xx/generic, but not a 120.


#4
It seems that the device is not actually supported within the OpenWrt project.

The stock firmware is a customized OpenWrt version. Plain OpenWrt can be installed from the web interface; just upload the sysupgrade image and flash it.

Current Release: snapshot


#5

I referred to Technical Data page. It is described as "WiP" in Unsupported Functions and seems to be working for support.


#6

The original firmware is based on Openwrt and the openwrt page suggests

http://comfast/cf-e120a

a snapshot release without a installed GUI is supported. I am not sure which one to download.


#7

Currently, in OpenWrt, firmware that can be installed to CF-E120A is not provided.


#8

When the SOC is the same with many others TP-Link devices isn't it easy to have an OPENWRT build for this device ?


#9

Relatively speaking, maybe (the vendor might enforce signed image verification and other hidden gems) - but it still needs to be done, by someone with the device on the desk.


#10

Kind of off topic but has anybody done any OEM orders with Comfast? Their range and active OpenWrt support is impressive.


#11

The code for support of CF-E120A v3 exists here, so you can build the firmware from this. (This code has not yet been merged into the OpenWrt project tree.)


#12

@vesonet the device is already supported upstream, as per commit 59c2f8af8c4400baffb09d6f8ab4d2826e38726a . You'll find the flashing instructions there. :+1:
