OpenWrt support for D-Link DIR-1760

Is there a possibility DIR 1760 may be supported by openwrt

There's a fair chance the DIR-878 pull request might cover that device too (albeit with some aesthetical changes to accomodate the different model name maybe). DIR-882 seems identical to the DIR-878 as well (besides a USB 3 port).

Edit: maybe analysing the D-Link firmware image might show you what changes you need concerning image names and whatnot. But it's not my area of expertise.

Careful about the flash partitioning, even if the hardware were 100% identical, that's often a place where vendors come up with different ideas to diversify their products from each other.


Good point. I also see now that the DIR-878 has only 16 MB flash and 128 MB RAM whereas the DIR-1760 has 128 and 256 respectively. So the DIR-878 won't work as is.

It's also SPI-NOR (DIR-878) flash vs NAND (DIR-1760) flash, so there will be bigger changes to the DTS, sysupgrade support and image format (UBI) necessary.


The DIR-1760 specs look similar to the DIR-2660 (same Flash and RAM), which has a snapshot image. I do see there is one less USB port (DIR-1760 has 1 USB 3.0, DIR-2660 has 1 USB 3.0 and 1 USB 2.0).

I was able to get the DIR-2660 image working on my DIR-2640, but the specs were pretty much identical.

I believe the 1760/1960/2660 are all now part of the same dtsi and will be included in the master branch when 20(or 21 depending on when it comes out) is released
