Cisco Linksys WAP4410N

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.

Supported Versions

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:

  • u-boot
  • Linux kernel gzipped uImage
  • rootfs

It is not sure whether u-boot is totally mandatory or not.
