Topic: Nanostation M5 poe passthrough
I'm testing Ubiquiti Nanostation 5M for using them in our OLSR-under-openwrt-based mesh network. I've compiled and uploaded the latest trunk 19374 and everything worked fine, even OLSR. Congratulations to all developers for such a universal and updated firmware which is openwrt.
However, it would very interesting (and help saving a lot of CAT5 cable) to enable the PoE passthrough feature included in this piece of hardware. Any success on this issue?
Looking at AirOS software, I think that gpio pin 8 must be set to enable the poe passthrough. I compiled gpioctrl with the openwrt but when I try:
gpioctrl dirout 8
I get the following error:
Error whilst opening /dev/gpio
It seems that is not recognising the gpio devices... Any ideas on this?
