 +====== Netgear WNDAP360 ======
  
 +===== Supported Versions =====
 +^ Version/​Model ^ Launch Date ^ S/N ^ OpenWrt Version Supported ^ Model Specific Notes ^
 +| v1   ​| ​ 2011-05-04? | - | [[https://​dev.openwrt.org/​changeset/​37193|r37193]] | Initial installation via uBoot only |
 +
 +===== Hardware Highlights =====
 +^ CPU ^ Ram ^ Flash ^ Network ^ USB ^ Serial ^ JTag ^
 +| Atheros AR7100 | 128MiB | 8MiB | 2x2 (2.4Ghz) and 2x2 (5Ghz), 1 x 1Gbps RJ45 | No | Yes (on back panel) | ? |
 +
 +
 +===== Installation =====
 +==== BEFORE YOU START!!! ====
 +
 +  * Backup your var, ART and manufacturing-data partitions. You will need var, manufacturing-data partitions to restore original firmware if needed ​
 +
 +  * Due to the fact that I moved partitions this has to be flashed via uboot! (only first flash, then sysupgrade is possible)
 +
 +==== Get Image Files ==== 
 +  * You can checkout latest code from trunk and make your own images. ​
 +  * If you want to re-use the images I have created (built with DNSAMAQ, Firewall, IPV6 support and LuCI with SSL), you can [[https://​www.dropbox.com/​sh/​akvrwilfgel1i8f/​IcQVxfy0ik |download the .bin files]] and skip to Section 2 / step 7.
 +
 +
 +==== Section 1: Make Images ====
 +1. Get trunk checked out (since r37193 no patching is needed, all is included in trunk)
 +
 +4. (Optional) Build and Install Feeds if required. eg, LuCI  (refer to [[:​doc:​devel:​feeds|generic documentation]] how to install feeds)
 +
 +  cd <trunk folder>
 +  ./​scripts/​feeds update
 +  ./​scripts/​feeds install luci
 +
 +5. Run menuconfig
 +  ​
 +  make menuconfig
 +
 +  * Select target system: '​AR71xx'​
 +  * Select target profile: '​Netgear WNDAP360'​
 +  * Add other packages you want eg. luci (for web GUI). 
 +
 +6. Make images. Images will be generated under /trunk/bin folder.
 +
 +  make
 +
 +==== Section 2: Load Images to Router ====
 +
 +7. Connect to your AP console and break booting sequence (press enter when prompted
 +   * You need a Cisco Console Cable (and a RJ232 to USB if you donot have a console port)
 +   * On windows you can use [[http://​www.esoft.com/​support/​knowledge-base/​connect-to-the-serial-console-port-via-putty/​ | PuTTY to connect to console]] and screen on Mac / Linux. (Use the 9600,8,N,1 jack of the router)
 +
 +8. At this stage you need a tftp server with static ip 192.168.1.1 //(This IP/subnet is different than the defualt IP your router in factory condition. This is the IP router assumes while in uBoot)//
 +  * put openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wndap360-kernel.bin and openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wndap360-rootfs-squashfs.bin in it 
 +  * Connect the router to your PC/Mac using network cable.
 +
 +9 Go to your router and download kernel to memory:
 +
 +  tftpboot 0x80010000 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wndap360-kernel.bin
 +
 +Output:
 +  Trying eth0
 +  Using eth0 device

 +  Bytes transferred = 1441792 (160000 hex)
 +
 +**NOTE**: Take a note how long file was. It will be in output at the end of command; in my case it was: **(160000 hex) **
 +
 +10. Erase flash and copy in place (**IMPORTANT** replace 160000 with the size you got if different!!)
 +
 +  erase 0xbf050000 +0x160000
 +  cp.b 0x80010000 0xbf050000 0x160000
 +
 +Output:

 +  Copy to Flash... write addr: bf050000
 +  done
 +
 +
 +11. Do the same with rootfs. **IMPORTANT** keep in mind that size may and probably will vary. In my case it was **(220000 hex)**
 +
 +  tftpboot 0x80010000 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wndap360-rootfs-squashfs.bin
 +  erase 0xbf200000 +0x220000

 +  done
 +
 +14. Once all is done, either type boot or reboot AP
 +
 +15. Once the router reboots, you can acces LuCI on http://​192.168.1.1 ​
 +  * you will need to change your computer'​s IP to may be 192.168.1.2 before accessing LuCi

 +==== Opening the case ====
 +**Note:** This will void your warranty!
 +
 +To open the case simply unscrew ​ 5 torx bolts (marked with red on picture above), there are two clips inside (marked with blue on picture above), you need to fiddle a bit to get the case opened. PCB is on one more screw in the middle of it (inside).
