 +===== Installation =====
 +
 +==== Restore mode ====
 +
 +If you want to upload firmware to router by tftp, you will have to turn your device to this mode. The procedure is following:
 +
 +  - Turn off the device.
 +  - Press and hold the reset button.
 +  - Plug the device (still hold the button).
 +  - Wait until the Diagnostic LED (second from the left) starts flashing quickly. (This will happen almost immediately.)
 +  - Now release the reset button. Your router is in Restore mode.
 +
 +==== TFTP installation notes ====
 +
 +Set your ethernet interface into static mode (IP address 192.168.168.10,​ netmask 255.255.255.0,​ default gateway 192.168.168.1),​ put your router into **[[toh:​compex:​wp54#​restore.mode|Restore mode]]** and upload the firmware by TFTP using the following commands (replace XXXXXX with wp54g or wp54ag):
 +
 +<​code>​
 +$ tftp 192.168.168.1
 +tftp> binary
 +tftp> trace
 +tftp> put openwrt-adm5120-router_le-XXXXXX-squashfs.bin
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Diagnostic LED will now stop blinking for a while; if the flashing procedure is successfully done, it will start blinking slowly. Now reboot your router manually (turn off - turn on) and OpenWrt will boot.
 +
 +===== Upgrading OpenWRT =====
 +If you have already installed OpenWrt and like to reflash for e.g. upgrading to a new OpenWrt version you can upgrade using the mtd command line tool. It is important that you put the firmware image into the ramdisk (/tmp) before you start flashing.
 +
 +== LuCI Web Upgrade Process ==
 +  *Browse to http://​192.168.1.1/​cgi-bin/​luci/​mini/​system/​upgrade/​ (LuCI Upgrade URL)
 +  *Upload TRX file to LuCI
 +  *Wait for reboot
 +
 +== Terminal Upgrade Process ==
 +
 +  *Login as root via SSH on 192.168.1.1
 +  *Use the following commands to upgrade.
 +
 +<​code>​
 +cd /tmp
 +# XXXXXX is wp54g or wp54ag
 +wget http://​downloads.openwrt.org/​**path-to-latest-release**/​adm5120_router_le/​openwrt-adm5120-router_le-XXXXXX-squashfs.bin
 +sysupgrade /​tmp/​openwrt-adm5120-router_le-XXXXXX-squashfs.bin
 +</​code>​
 +
 +===== Wireless =====
 +
 +Atheros-based card are supported. The device doesn'​t work with Broadcom cards, since kmod-ssb causes kernel panic at startup. ​
 +
 +Both madwifi and ath5k work well with WLM54(A)G cards. You will need some wireless authenticator and/or supplicant (wpad-mini/​wpad/​wpa-supplicant/​hostpad/​hostapd-mini).
 +
 +:!: Madwifi doesn'​t support MAC changes through UCI on this architecture. If you want to change of wireless MAC, see [[http://​madwifi-project.org/​wiki/​UserDocs/​ChangeMacAddress|this]]. ​
