Topic: Adding Support for 96338w2

Hey all
I have a Alice wlan 1121  http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/siemens/s1621-z220-a
its a broadcom based adsl2+ modem .
Other devices with same board id i know are: DNA- A212, DNA-A213 and Nokia Siemens Networks Residential Router 1600
(i dont know about the board pcb layout ( pictures are welcome)
Other devices with same pcb layout  but wrong board id are: D-Link DSL-2640U/BRU/C Ver. C1  http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/d-link/dsl-2640u-bru-c

Have patched board_bcm963xx.c to Support 96338w2 but my unit isnt reachable over lan and wlan is not showing up. So i have to wait for my serial cable.

Have tried  serial console from raspberry pi to the router but i see only signs i cant read in minicom and picocom. :-(

Re: Adding Support for 96338w2

little update have lan ports up and runing after a compilation patch and flash marathon ;-)
Luci does a good job.

ToDo:
testing.
get wifi working.
adding usb port get usb working.
submit patches .

Re: Adding Support for 96338w2

Watching at you board photo, it seems there exists an a place designed to solder a usb connector near the switch and behind a reset button. Not sure if you may also need to patch your kernel before you solder all needed components.

You may need to patch the kernel with something like this:

         reg &= ~USBH_PRIV_SWAP_OHCI_ENDN_MASK;

Since bcm6338 SoCs only have one usb port and it seems to be slave as default.

Re: Adding Support for 96338w2

Wow thanks Danitool have a secound thread about adding usb.  Nice to see this patch!

Re: Adding Support for 96338w2

Here is a boot log from flashed device.  (connected over serial.)
Wireless is not working. All other things working good!

If anyone can help me with wireless stuff i would be happy.
its a bcm4312 connected with sdio to the bcm6338

Re: Adding Support for 96338w2

Not sure if bcm6338 SoCs have SDIO interface. Probably it uses the SPI interface instead. No idea how the b43 driver can be modified to work with SPI. Neither the SPI interface works in Backfire, the work must be done with AA. Ask developers at IRC to point you to the right way.
