Hi,

I would like to test DD-WRT on my router: Belkin Wireless Pre-N Router (F5D8230-4 v1001ea).

I looked at Supported_Devices#Belkin and it seems to not be supported, so I would like to know if is good to test it or not, or if I can help you to give support for it?

Regards

Give us some info about it and we can tell if it can be supported.

Here you have:

I opened the router, but it's impossible to see something, because everything is protected...

FCC-ID: SA3-AGN0901AP0100

From this site we can see it's properties, since is the v1, can only be:
Model: F5D8230-4
Version: 1
Platform & Frequency: Broadcom 4704 @ 300MHz
Flash: 4MB
RAM: 16MB
Wireless NIC: Airgo (mini-PCI)
Switch: BCM5325
boot_wait: on
Serial: Yes
JTAG: Yes
USB: No

Hope this can help... Wink

but its a mpci card so you can replace it! the board itself IS supported!!

there are some devices already supported with this cpu so if you want to try it you can try to upload the latest rc7 mini via tftp to the device and see if it boots. plz remove the wlan card before you start it might brick it! you should also add a broadcom mpci wlan card if you can get one.

If you can suggest some good Broadcom models compatible with it, will be very handy :P

Thanks

the most compatible way is to replace the aigo wlan by a broadcom draft-n card. and then u can use the standard ddwrt broacom builds

a serial bootup log would be nice to have.
a jtag cfe & nvram backup also!

but if someone wants to try it use tftp to upload the latest rc7 mini generic version to the device and see whats happening (remove wlan card before).
