Topic: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

Hi, Guys,



The latest progress is that both usb3 and 5Ghz are working .
The firmware can be downloaded :
https://app.box.com/s/redpq6c4um2j8schyx5a

The wiki page is :
http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/sitecom/wlr-8100

Known issue:
1. MSI needs to be configured for 988x
2. Band width for ac needs to be added(currently only 20/40Mhz)

Hi, Guys,

I have another router from Sitecom WLR-8100. I checked the chipset, it seems it is also based on qca9558 platform. I see it is based on ap135/136 ref board as the tp-link archerc7. Now I can already get the wan, lan, ethernet, 2.4ghz, usb 2.0 running. the problem is that the usb3.0 is controlled by separate  chipset EJ168A and its 5Ghz (qca9880) also needs driver.I wonder if anyone is interested in this model?

this is flash procedures:
Firstly, you have to connect the ttl cable to get access to the console.
You have to press 2 during boot and then choose Yes to confirm tftp, then set the router ip and your local tftp server ip. choose the file to tftp. then  it should work as follows:


Please choose the operation:
   1: Load system code to SDRAM via TFTP.
   3: Boot system code via Flash (default).

You choosed 2

0
   
2: System Load Linux Kernel then write to Flash via TFTP.
Warning!! Erase Linux in Flash then burn new one. Are you sure?(Y/N)

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

later i will put it on github

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

Here TP-Link TL-WDR7500 / TP-Link Archer C7 AC1750 is the documentation of the Archer C7.

And I see the Sitecom WLR-8100  is available in Germany: http://geizhals.de/sitecom-wlr-8100-mimo-dual-band-simultan-a987438.html

When we have support for it, somebody should update the wiki: http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/start#sitecom

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

i realize this router uses ar8337 switch instead of ar8327 in archer c7. anyone knows about the differences?

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

it seems this router has a 16M rom which will give more space for adding apps.
it will be nice this one can be officially supported by the dev team.

looking forward.

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

This is the modified fw based on ref board. everything is working except 5Ghz and USB3 controller.

openwrt-ar71xx-generic-ap136-initramfs-uImage.bin

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

i recommend using ttl to flash the fw. during boot, you can press "2" and then flash through tftp

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

i have a question. currently only the initramfs uimage works. other files in the output folder don't give me success. anyone has similar experience? please give me some suggestions. because ramfs does't make full use of the flash and doesn't allow saving after power cycle. Thanks a lot.

anyone knows?

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

create squashfs-sysupgrade.bin, because initramfs not store changes to flash.

do you have original firmware dmesg?

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

i see the problem now, after changing the mtd and combine kernel and rootfs manually. I can flashed the modified fw through tftp
and the jff2fs can be used.

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

please print full string of this line
Kernel command line:  board=AP136 console=ttyS0,115200 mtdparts=spi0.0:192k(u-boot)ro,64k(u-bd

you trying to set 8MB flash when device have 16MB. also try squashfs.

Connect serial cable and show full output.

What was firmware was in use before? do you have it output?

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

HI, Guys, it finally works. The previous fw is ver 1.0.0.

I figured it out that it is because of the wrong setting of my mtdlayout. After modification , it works perfectly.


Please choose the operation:
   1: Load system code to SDRAM via TFTP.
   3: Boot system code via Flash (default).

You choosed 2

0
   
2: System Load Linux Kernel then write to Flash via TFTP.
Warning!! Erase Linux in Flash then burn new one. Are you sure?(Y/N)
Please Input new ones /or Ctrl-C to discard
        Input device IP (192.168.1.1) ==:192.168.1.1
        Input server IP (192.168.1.100) ==:192.168.1.100
        Input Linux Kernel filename (uImageWLR-8100) ==:combinedaug2708.bin
dup 1 speed 1000

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

you can find the working copy of my firmware at:
https://app.box.com/s/7kavjfuh2omfixphnxxv

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

i flashed it through tftp. The ttl pins were already soldered on the board when I opened it up. So maybe you also won't need to find the pins your self.
I will upload the picture of my board later.

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

my mtdlayout setting is as below:

And I see the Sitecom WLR-8100  is available in Germany: http://geizhals.de/sitecom-wlr-8100-mimo-dual-band-simultan-a987438.html

When we have support for it, somebody should update the wiki: http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/start#sitecom

I added the device:

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

you may need to modify the mac address in /etc/config/wireless according to the mac of your wireless interface.

Re: Openwrt support for Sitecom WLR-8100

I think the following should enable ath10k but I get only a Kernel Oops on TP-Link with supposedly "rare" AR1A hardware

1. enable ath10k
in your trunk folder there is package/kernel/mac80211/Makefile

Patch it with the ath10k enable patch from the mailing list:
https://lists.openwrt.org/pipermail/openwrt-devel/2013-August/021105.html

2. update mac80211 (compat-wireless) to backports (same project new name)

PKG_VERSION:=20130802
PKG_RELEASE:=1
PKG_SOURCE_URL:=http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/backports/2013/08/02
PKG_SHA1SUM:=d8ca2b9405ec81c171470f60f526d10e841e74ebc526b1938350ea8f9871084e

PKG_SOURCE:=backports-$(PKG_VERSION).tar.bz2
PKG_BUILD_DIR:=$(KERNEL_BUILD_DIR)/backports-$(PKG_VERSION)
PKG_BUILD_PARALLEL:=1

and a line with "echo" in Build/prepare to the new name (backports instead of compat)

3. refresh patches of mac80211
(see OpenWrt wiki: http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/devel/patches )

make prepare
make package/kernel/mac80211/prepare V=s QUILT=1
cd build_dir/target .../linux.../backports-20130802/
quilt series
# delete 2 large pending work patches - less fixes for other wireless drivers 
# but you want to test ath10k anyway
quilt delete 300- ...

# repeat / use following 3 commands until all patches are working or 
# delete some patches for drivers not used in your image
quilt push
quilt refresh
# remove an applied patch
quilt pop

4. maybe integrate hw revision test
patch from ath10k mailing list: http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/ath10k/2013-August/000279.html

# if you are at the end of quilt series - name patch f. ex. 900-ath10k_hw_id.patch
quilt import <path>/900-ath10k_hw_id.patch
# patch is in patches dir
quilt push
quilt refresh

5. update packages: atm you only have a modified build_dir

# in openwrt buildroot
make package/kernel/mac80211/update

After that you should build your image.
atm you have to manually load the kernel modules (insmod ath10k_core, insmod ath10k_pci )

Thanks zloop. But now I am trying to do it in attitude adjustment instead of trunk. there is no such structures like package/kernel/mac80211. is it still possible to port ath10k? I also want to include the ath10k in the kernel like ath9k, any suggestions?
