Speedlink 6501

I have a Speedlink 6501. Is there a way to get openWRT working? With a serial USB converter I can connet the device:

# cat /proc/cpuinfo 
system type             : VR9

# dmesg | grep uboot

Can anyobody help?

No, this device is not supported by OpenWrt.


Oh ... Ok ... But iam not a developer :frowning: I have to build openWRT by my self?

Very likely. But identifying the key components would be the first step- required for sure - and then maybe you could get some help. But you would likely need to do at least some of the heavy lifting.

While it appears to be supportable (although your abbreviated dmesg paste is too short to really tell), you are the only one who owns this particular device, as such you're the only one who could add support for it.

I found this ...

There is a guy, who tried to build an openWRT image, too?

That's great (at least it may be), but someone (with the device on their desk) still needs to do the remaining bits and pieces to get it merged into vanilla OpenWrt, after three years it's unlikely that the owner of that github repo cares enough about that.

I can try, to contact him ... I see, the original kernel source for this device is available, too. would that be helpful?
