Hi everyone, newbie here. I have a Belkin F5D7230-4 which on the label on the back says ver.4000yy. I've checked the supported hardware list (both the search engine and the table) and it's not listed as either supported or unsupported.
Does anyone have any idea if I can use this router? I've opened it up to check out the chips but not really sure what I'm looking for. I've tried flashing it using the instructions for the nearest version to it but gave up fairly quickly as I was afraid of bricking it (i don't have a JTAG cable).
I've taken a load of pictures of the chips inside and I'm going to try and confirm the chip sizes but any advice would be gratefully received.
Two of the chips are identical Etron EM636165TS-6s which apparently is a 2MB DRAM chip. Not quite sure why it has two of them, does that make it 4MB of flash or does it not work like that?
There is an MX 29LV800BTTC70 chip which I can't find a datasheet for. The ethernet chip is a Marvell 88E6060RCJ.
I've not prised the heatsink off the CPU yet I can give that a go if necessary.
