Topic: Linksys WRT610N

Hi,

Is there any chances to get support for Linksys WRT610N in openwrt firmware?

Thanx.

Re: Linksys WRT610N

We don't have one, so can't add support for it. Patches are welcomed, tho smile

Re: Linksys WRT610N

Hi
I have one. From where to start in order to add support for it?

Re: Linksys WRT610N

I have one too. What part of the wrt610n doesn't work? The WiP page doesn't say anything on this matter. I mean: what would happen if I tried OpenWRT on it? Would it brick? And why would it? Switch not supported? CPU not supported? Flash not supported?

Re: Linksys WRT610N

I would start with adding a serial console before flashing.  Make sure you have compiled the brcm57xx driver into your image, there is a chance it might support the switch.

Re: Linksys WRT610N

I'm not a big fan of TTL serial consoles. My last attempt with an Asus WL-500gP failed miserably, because I tried soldering a converter, and it didn't work. I can't find a ready made one on the market either.

Do you know if this router has a diag mode like the WL-500gP, so I can reinstate its firmware if OpenWRT doesn't support its switch?

Re: Linksys WRT610N

Another approach that I can think about: what in OpenWRT could not work? Is it the kernel? Would things have a better chance of working if I built a OpenWRT image with the original kernel instead of the OpenWRT one? If that would work (in the idea that I don't risk bricking the router, and that I don't have to go hunting for ttl serial cables), it would solve my problem momentarily, and after that I'd have time to go the long way and get a ttl cable from China (they seem to have it there).

Re: Linksys WRT610N

Hi,

I've just bought a WRT610n that is waiting for a brand new rom ;-)

I have some photos of both sides if this is of interest of anyone. There are 5 big pads for a connector on the back side of the pcb with the following measured voltage:
1 +3.25
2 +3.25
3 +3.25
4 NC
5 GND

This looks like usb... Or?

Has anyone manged to find a serial connection on this model?

Has also anyone managed to recover via tftp? I'd like to start playing with openwrt on this box, but if possible without definitely breaking it ;-)

thanks...

I just bought a 610N also and would like to help get a working version of OpenWRT on it.

I tried to open it last night and it would open after I removed the 4 screws.

Any hints? I would like to see you pictures.

thanks!

Re: Linksys WRT610N

Hi,

Managed to arrive just in time before closure of the electronic shop... And this has proved to be a good think ;-)

I followed the posts in dd-wrt forums about WRT610n (http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic. … ;start=285), managed to get a max3232 chip for the serial interface to PC.

I applied the default design proposed in the chip documentation (http://www.datasheetcatalog.org/datasheets/270/497537_DS.pdf) and it looks like that: http://lh3.ggpht.com/_TZhfo_vWSEk/SRtGR1ycBSI/AAAAAAAABDc/28aGzpZHAa0/s800/img_0129.jpg

Connection to backplane of the PCB:

http://lh6.ggpht.com/_TZhfo_vWSEk/SRtGMS_ZIzI/AAAAAAAABDI/leL2V0WVNNE/s800/img_0120.jpg

Everything worked immediately using minicom on linux at 115000 8N1. Bootlog is really similar to the one posted on openwrt wiki.

Here is the schematic used, but I think you can also find ready to use cables.

DON'T DIRECTLY CONNECT YOUR PC TO THE ROUTER DIRECTLY. You need a voltage adaptation or you may burn the serial interface on the router.

Let's play with firmwares ;-)

How did you manage to open the router? Did you have to break the casing?

I took the screws out and the damn thing won't open, are there clips that need to be pushed wide to open?

I would like to keep the 610N looking functional if possible, if not then I will use a hammer... smile

I assume that my first attempt to load the firmware will not be a success so I will need to prepare to recover the router from serial.

Thanks!

Re: Linksys WRT610N

Using a precision screwdriver, you should manage to open it "pacifically" ;-)

Start on the front of the router, the back is a little harder to remove and I did it manually has the screwdriver only provided glitches on the box. Be also careful with the antennas wires.

I could close the box, but I'll need first to make a hole for the serial cable. I don't think the box provide enough room to get the serial converter in it and also don't seems practical to add a connector

Great info!!!

Thanks... I got mine open too!

I will get a serial cable kit tomorrow.

Do you have a picture of how you soldered your serial cable?

Thanks!

PS: When you say not to connect the PC to the board directly, you mean that the MAXIM chip is required to adapt voltage?

Connection to the WRT610 is described in the photos and schema I posted, ie: pin1 for +3.3v, pin2 for tx, pin3 for RX and pin5 for ground.

The maxim chip (or an equivalent) is necessary as the router is expecting 3.3v signal on the serial port while a standard PC will send 12v. I f you omit the interface/chip, you will certainly write your router this first time you will hit a key... It may work readonly, but the cost of the chip + 5 100nF capacitors and db9 connector has been below 5 euro for me, and it gives real control over the boot process of the router (ie: CFE) ...

Damn it!!! I couldn't find the right chip or a replacement. I will have to order from the web...

I have ordered the MAX3232CPE+ there were a lot of variants on http://www.maxim-ic.com/

Is this the same one that you are using? I still would appreciate a picture of your soldering of the cable onto the board.

Thanks,

Re: Linksys WRT610N

Here is why it is important to have a serial interface:

I managed to add the binary header information in the image Makefile:

This generates a new "valid" image for the wrt610n... Lets brick the box:

I have ordered the MAX3232CPE+ there were a lot of variants on http://www.maxim-ic.com/

Is this the same one that you are using? I still would appreciate a picture of your soldering of the cable onto the board.

Thanks,

I'm also using a MAX3232CPE.

I will provide a pcb layout soon...

Thanks !! Hopefully I will be able to return the favor soon and help get the WRT610N up and running with OpenWRT.

Even if you are doing great on your own...

Here is why it is important to have a serial interface:

I managed to add the binary header information in the image Makefile:

This generates a new "valid" image for the wrt610n... Lets brick the box:

You probably noticed this already but the device detection (WRT54G\GS\GL) is wrong and it is complaining about not finding any LAN interfaces

Are you going to use Linux 2.4??

Re: Linksys WRT610N

Is JTAG visible on the board somewhere?  None of the photos give a clean overhead shot.

I have just ordered one of these and anticipate adding to the Wiki page.

I wonder why people keep using MAX232?   I have stereo jacks fitted on all the WRT54GL & GS & SL routers I work with in a WISP setup.   Easy & CHEAP to fit the jack then I just have one USB cable with the smart/expensive bits I move around as needed.

Never seen them before... MAX3232 was near me ;-)

According to dd-wrt forums, there are 3 JTAG ports (visible on the backplane photo). 2 at the bottom linked to the wifi card, and one to the cpu (near the EON chip)
