 +====Serial ===
 +
 +There is a 4-pin white header ("​JP1"​) inside the system can which is the serial port.  This is the confirmed pinout, and the terminal settings are ''​%% 115200 8N1%%'':​

 +
 +//Direction here is relative the device. ​ So, "​output"​ would connect to the PC "​input"​ so you could see the console data and "​input"​ would connect to the PC "​output"​ so you could enter commands. ​ All the usual Tx and Rx stuff gets confusing so I went with this more descriptive method.//

 +  * Mathew Handau Posting
 +1. Download modified OpenWrt firmware with a web browser from http://​www.box.net/​shared/​nvjez74rj9
 +
 +2. Download Belkin GPL tarball (containing not-GPL binary drivers) ​ wget http://​www.belkin.com/​support/​opensource/​files/​F5D8230v1_1.00.06_GPL.tar.gz
 +
 +3. Configure your PC wired network interface so it is on the same subnet as 192.168.2.1 ifconfig eth0 inet 192.168.2.2
 +
 +4. Wire your your PC wired network interface to one of the LAN network interfaces of the router using either a switch, a cross-over cable, or a PC network interface that does the cross-over for you.
 +
 +5. Use tftp procedures to flash the router
 + 7. Configure your PC wired network interface so it is on the same subnet as 192.168.1.1 ifconfig eth0 inet 192.168.1.2
 + 8. Telnet to the router telnet 192.168.1.1
 + 9. On the router; set a password for root (this will enable ssh access). ​ You will be prompted to type the password twice.
 +passwd
 + 10. On the PC; extract Belkin GPL tarball
 +tar zxvf MIMO_GPL_1.00.06.tgz
 + 11. On the PC; rename and copy the relevant files to the router (router password will be required for each scp)
 +<​code>​
 +cd MIMO_GPL_1.00.06/​src/​askey/​Airgo/​linux/​
 +mv ccd ccd.o
 +mv wns_mod wns_mod.o
 +mv mac-asic.out mac-asic.o
 +scp rtai_sched.o ccd.o wns_mod.o mac-asic.o poldrv.o root@192.168.1.1:/​lib/​modules/​2.4.20/​airgo/​
 +scp wsm aniSdkTool ani8021x_aa root@192.168.1.1:/​usr/​sbin/​
 +scp 1x* wni* wsmC* wsmD* root@192.168.1.1:/​etc/​airgo/​
 +</​code>​
 +Note: If prompted to continue connecting type yes.
 +Note: If this is the second time you have flashed the router, or you've previously used ssh to connect to a different router, then to scp you may need to remove the 192.168.1.1 entry from ~/​.ssh/​known_hosts,​ or just delete ~/​.ssh/​known_hosts.
 +
 + 12. On the router; run the airgo script
 +sh -x /​etc/​rc.common /​etc/​init.d/​airgo start
 + 13. On the router; Configure the newly created wlan0 interface (alternatively this can be persisted by configuring /​etc/​config/​network and rebooting)
 +ifconfig wlan0 inet 192.168.3.1
 + 14. On the PC; disconnect the wire, join the OpenWrt wireless network, configure your wireless network interface settings and ping the router.
 +<​code>​
 +ifconfig wlan0 inet 192.168.3.2
 +ping 192.168.3.1
 +</​code>​
 +So at this point you should have the Airgo up and running as an access point (with no bridging). ​ You probably wish to change some of the wifi settings such as specifying the wifi channel and enabling WPA.  For now this has to be done by editing the /​etc/​init.d/​airgo script, specifically the aniSdkTool commands. ​ Here's the lines you're looking for:
 +<​code>​
 +/​usr/​sbin/​aniSdkTool -s ndn 0 2 # network density?
 +  /​usr/​sbin/​aniSdkTool -s ssid OpenWrt
 +  /​usr/​sbin/​aniSdkTool -s open 1 # no security
 +  #/​usr/​sbin/​aniSdkTool -s open 0
 +  #/​usr/​sbin/​aniSdkTool -s wpa 1 1 0
 +  #/​usr/​sbin/​aniSdkTool -s psk yourpassphrase
 +  /​usr/​sbin/​aniSdkTool -s chn 0 1 # channel 1 on radio 0
 +  /​usr/​sbin/​aniSdkTool -s cga
 +</​code>​
 +Every time you run the aniSdkTool command it will update config files in /var/, which are symlinked back to /​etc/​airgo/​. ​ The original config files from the MIMO tgz have useful comments which are lost so check the original files for information on parameters. ​ Run the aniSdkTool command with no parameters for more information. ​
 +The final aniSdkTool command (-cga) commits the settings. ​ Commit works well the first time, but if you try to commit a second time it will attempt to unload mac-asic.out (which fails because it had to be renamed mac-asic.o),​ so you must rmmod mac-asic.o, but first terminate the wsm or ani8021x_aa processes else things will crash and the router reboots.
 +Work left to be done is writing up a /​lib/​wifi/​airgo.sh script to integrate with /​etc/​config/​wireless. ​ But I've got other projects going on so anyone interested should go ahead and write that script.
 +Good luck.
 +update: It looks like the Belkin GPL tarball doesn'​t decompress with standard linux gzip.  I'm not sure what sort of gzip they used, or perhaps the files are just corrupt. ​ If anyone succeeds in decompressing a Belkin tarball then perhaps you can share what utility you used?
 +update2: I've opened a question on the Belkin website informing them of the corrupt GPL files and asking for them to fix said files. ​ In the mean time, contact me via email and I will send you the relevant modules and utilties from the original MIMO_GPL_1.00.06.tgz.

 +==== TFTP ====
 + ​1. ​ Best practice is to have 2 network connections. One for the router LAN Port 1 and second to wifi or live connection, so that this will ensure there is an active connection.
 +
 + 2. Statically set the machine'​s network connection LAN Port 1 on the router to IP address 192.168.2.* (not .1) and net mask to 255.255.255.0
 +
 + 3. Then enter this TFTP command in terminal ...$ echo -en "rexmt 1\ntrace\nbinary\nput ​ [File]\nquit\n"​ | tftp 192.168.2.1
 +
 + ** Note: ** //Make sure you change the [File] to the correct information.//​
 +
 + 4. Power up the router. ​
 +
 +A successful flash will look like this:
 +<​code>​
 +...$echo -en "rexmt 1\ntrace\nbinary\nput openwrt-brcm47xx-squashfs.trx\nquit\n"​ | tftp 192.168.2.1
 +Packet tracing on. 
 +sent WRQ <​file=openwrt-brcm-2.4-squashfs.trx,​ mode=octet>​
 +sent WRQ <​file=openwrt-brcm-2.4-squashfs.trx,​ mode=octet>​
 +sent WRQ <​file=openwrt-brcm-2.4-squashfs.trx,​ mode=octet>​
 +...
 +received ACK <​block=0>​
 +sent DATA <​block=1,​ 512 bytes>
 +received ACK <​block=1>​
 +sent DATA <​block=2,​ 512 bytes>
 +...
 +sent DATA <​block=2953,​ 0 bytes>
 +received ACK <​block=2953>​
 +Sent 1511424 bytes in 12.7 seconds
 +</​code>​
 +** Note: ** The script times out the first time, turn the router off and go back to step 3.
 +
 +** Note: ** The script fails multiple times then try running an infinite ping of 192.168.2.1 as you power on the router to confirm network cabling and settings are correct.  ​
 +
 +** Note: ** The original Belkin firmware is configured to use 192.168.2.1.
 +
 +
 +==== Website ====
 +
 +Using a Hex Editor change the signature on the firmware file to 00-2f-01-02. It is only the first 4 keys.
 + 
 +In Belkin Router'​s Website upload the image file as any other update..
