 +====== Ubiquiti PicoStation2 ======
  
 +===== Supported Versions =====
 +Picostation 2s are supported by Chaos Calmer under the "​ath25"​ target. Older versions, from Barrier Breaker and previous, referred to the chipset as "​atheros"​.
 +
 +Chaos Calmer (15.05): https://​downloads.openwrt.org/​chaos_calmer/​15.05/​ath25/​generic/​openwrt-15.05-ath25-ubnt2-pico2-squashfs.bin
 +
 +Barrier Breaker (14.07): https://​downloads.openwrt.org/​barrier_breaker/​14.07/​atheros/​generic/​openwrt-atheros-ubnt2-pico2-squashfs.bin
 +
 +Attitude Adjustment (12.09): https://​downloads.openwrt.org/​attitude_adjustment/​12.09/​atheros/​generic/​openwrt-atheros-ubnt2-squashfs.bin
 +
 +===== Installing =====
 +It should be possible to use the ubiquiti web interface to install the firmware binaries.
 +
 +When flashing those images, the Ubiquiti web interface *may* show a warning about unsupported third-party firmware.
 +This warning can be ignored.
 +
 +==== Flashing via TFTP =====
 +The devices come with a handy tftp server for uploading images without a web ui (or in case of certain "​bricked"​ states). It's the same as:
 +http://​wiki.openwrt.org/​toh/​ubiquiti/​nanostation,​ but for redundancy, the process is:
 +
 +=== Requirements ===
 +  * Ethernet cable connection between PC and NanoStation. ​ A switched connection or a bridged connection seems to work fine.
 +  * Network settings of PC: 192.168.1.254/​255.255.255.0
 +  * TFTP client on PC
 +  * NanoStation firmware file from Ubiquiti (not an OpenWrt image)
 +
 +=== Procedure ===
 +  - Turn off the device
 +  - Press the reset button
 +  - Turn on the device
 +  - Release the reset button ~10 seconds (but not longer) after turning the device on.  You will know it's ready when the LEDs change.
 +  - Ping 192.168.1.20. ​ If it works, you're ready to upload an image, if not, go back to step 1.
 +  - tftp the image in binary mode to 192.168.1.20 as '​flash_update'​.
 +<​code>​
 +tftp 192.168.1.20
 +tftp> bin
 +tftp> put openwrt-atheros-ubnt5-squashfs.bin flash_update
 +Sent 1965199 bytes in 28.8 seconds
 +tftp> quit
 +</​code>​
 +
 +or in Windows Dos prompt
 +<​code>​
 +tftp -i 192.168.1.20 put openwrt-atheros-ubnt5-squashfs.bin flash_update
 +</​code>​
 +
 + 7. Signal LEDs might be blinking during the upgrade. ​ On a Nano5L, the power lights go back and forth.
 + 7. Wait ~7 minutes before restarting or until the power lights stop their back and forth blinking.
 + 7. Restart. ​ The device should be back to its old configuration (OpenWrt doesn'​t overwrite or modify the NVRAM settings).
 +
 + 8. telnet to 192.168.1.1 and set a password with
 +<​code>​
 +passwd
 +</​code>​
 +
 +
 +===== Upgrading OpenWrt =====
 +->​[[doc:​howto:​generic.sysupgrade]]
 +
 +If you have already installed OpenWrt and like to reflash for e.g. upgrading to a new OpenWrt version you can upgrade using the sysupgrade 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 the "​sysupgrade"​ image file to LuCI
 +  *Wait for reboot
 +
 +
 +== Terminal Upgrade Process ==
 +  *Login as root via SSH on 192.168.1.1<​code bash>
 +ssh root@192.168.1.1</​code>​
 +  *Use the following commands to upgrade:<​code>​
 +cd /tmp/
 +wget https://​downloads.openwrt.org/​chaos_calmer/​15.05/​ath25/​generic/​openwrt-15.05-ath25-ubnt2-pico2-squashfs.bin
 +sysupgrade -i /​tmp/​openwrt-15.05-ath25-ubnt2-pico2-squashfs.bin</​code>​
 +
 +
 +==== Restore Original AirOS firmware on Nanostation ====
 +To restore original firmware back you can't use mtd or sysupgrade but you have to use tftp method.
 +
 +First put Picostation in recovery mode via reset button on power on, and then flash original flash image via tftp.
 +
 +
 +===== Basic configuration =====
 +-> [[doc:​howto:​basic.config|Basic configuration]] After flashing, proceed with this.\\
 +Set up your Internet connection, configure wireless, configure USB port, etc.
