I have heard about new Netgear WGR614L router. Is there anybody who has experience in working with that particular router? Is it compatible with WRT54GL?

Rakha,
DD-WRT supports the bcm5354 based routers, but not sure if it already supports the netgear WGR614L open source router. Can anyone through some ideas here?

WGR614L has community around it at http://www.myopenrouter.com and you may be able to get some answers on this there too.

Here is what I can find out about WGR614L at here.

"A new router platform WGR614L is coming soon and what got me excited is that this new platform is well suited for many excellent community developed firmwares like like OpenWRT, Sveasoft, DD-WRT, Tomato. This Broadcom 5354 SoC based router has 4MB flash and 16MB SDRAM - good enough to run most of these popular firmwares. In fact most of the firmwares that runs on Linksys WRT54GL should be easily (relatively speaking) portable to WGR614L."

DD-WRT supports the bcm5354 chipsets - but not sure if the firmware can be run on this rotuer unmodified.

The also have a alpha version of Tomato firmware available here.

Well, hardware is OK, all the rest is data we need, or courage to flash it and then provide data.

What is the data that you need?

I will get the serial pins soldered - and should be able to get the cfe output. Also I have noticed that they have LZMA support in the CFE for loading vmlinux, and use LZMA-squashfs for it.

Thanks,

Basic support added in svn 9179. I'll upload test build to my folder soon. If it'll run, we can improve support then (reset button, leds, ...)

Thanks a lot for a quick image. But it took sometime for me to try this out.

Possibly I am doing something wrong. But it seems none of the images could be loaded by the CFE bootloader inside the router.

dd-wrt.v24-9181_NEWD_micro.bin
dd-wrt.v24-9181_NEWD_mini.bin
dd-wrt.v24-9181_NEWD_nokaid.bin
dd-wrt.v24-9181_WRH54G_micro.bin

After that I tried out by packaging it in the same format as the one suggested in How to create firmware image and create the .chk file.

The file basically adds a 58 bytes header to the trx image. I have attached the .chk message too.

After that I could load the firmware into the board using the "tftpd" command in CFE.

But for some reason the kernel doesn't find the root file system with the DD-WRT firmware.

Please check the logs.

I am also planning to build dd-wrt locally. any pointer to tutorial would be appreciated.

Attached are
1. Console messages for booting Netgears WGR614L firmware. WGR614L-NETGEAR-MESSAGES
2. Console messages for booting dd-wrt firmware.
3. The chk image with added headers.

I will post a file ui_flash.c from cfe/cfe/ui/ui_flash.c downloaded from
ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/GPL/wgr614v8-v1.1.2_1.0.23NA_src.zip
which I think may be of some help.

ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/GPL/wgr614v8-v1.1.2_1.0.23NA_src.zip

You can infact access much of the gpl-ed code for this router. but for the user mode I see most of it is closed.

i have the same router and im realy into getting dd-wrt on it..

the last firmware posted didnt load through web-upload.. :(

it shuld be update-able as its widely promoted as open-source router...

while rebooting all of the TTLs are 64, even very first... thats why its not possible to use tftp.

ive tryed everything, and i will be very thankful for solution Smile

I see the problem, this router has serial flash chip, I'll do special "SF" image which should boot.

Mini image for serial flash, something to start with. No netgear header.
