The SoC AR9132 is used in many devices long time supported in OpenWrt, e.g. TP-Link TL-WR1043ND, but the Cisco WAP4410N does not have an internal Ethernet switch.
Support for the Linksys WAP4410N is currently in progress. So far, the ar71xx target works ok, and the firmware format for web upgrades has been reverse engineered successfully.
We are doing some testing at the moment to see how many binaries from the original firmware are required. So far, it seems like we need to build at least a web upgrade image containing:
- Linux kernel gzipped uImage
It is not sure whether u-boot is totally mandatory or not.
|Version/Model||S/N||OpenWrt Version Supported||Model Specific Notes|
|System-On-Chip: Atheros AR9132|
|CPU Speed: 400 Mhz|
|Flash-Chip: MXIC MX29LV640EBTI|
|Flash size: 8 MiB|
|RAM: 32 MiB|
|Wireless: Atheros AR9132 (on-chip)|
The serial header is located close to the shielding of the radio (long metal case). The pinout is the following:
Top of the device (Ethernet, PSU …)
[x] RX Wi-Fi shielding [x] TX [x] GND [x] VCC
Sticker containing serial, mac etc …
The JTAG header is a standard 14 pins header located a little below the white sticker containing serial, MAC address etc…
The pin number 1 is marked with a white silkscreen and is the one located in the bottom-left of the device when LEDs are closest to you.
