===== Installing a new Firmware Image ===== ===== Installing a new Firmware Image =====
-**''NOTE:''** The firmware image for the [[toh:ubiquiti:routerstation]] and the the one for the [[toh:ubiquiti:routerstation.pro]] are <color red>NOT COMPATIBLE</color>.+Before starting this procedure, download (or otherwise obtain) a [[toh:ubiquiti:routerstation.pro]] firmware, for example: <code> 
 +wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/attitude_adjustment/12.09/ar71xx/generic/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-ubnt-rspro-squashfs-factory.bin </code>
-  - Find the image with "openwrt-ar71xx-ubnt-rspro-squashfs-factory.bin".<code> +**''NOTE:''** The firmware image for the [[toh:ubiquiti:routerstation]] and the one for the [[toh:ubiquiti:routerstation.pro]] are <color red>NOT INTERCHANGEABLE</color>. If you install the wrong one, your system will NOT boot. 
-http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/10.03.1/ar71xx/openwrt-ar71xx-ubnt-rspro-squashfs-factory.bin</code> + 
- - Boot the system in recovery mode by holding the reset button for a few seconds while powering on the device. +After that, boot the device into recovery mode by
-  - Upload the new firmware to the device through its WAN port using TFTP on the default IP address, 192.168.1.20:<code bash> +  * connecting an ethernet cable to the WAN port 
-tftp 192.168.1.20 -m binary -c put openwrt-ar71xx-ubnt-rspro-squashfs-factory.bin</code> Alternatively with ''atftp'':<code bash>atftp --trace --option "timeout 1" --option "mode octet" --put --local-file openwrt-ar71xx-generic-ubnt-rspro-squashfs-factory.bin 192.168.1.20</code> +  * holding the reset button for a few seconds while powering on the device 
-  - Don't reset it nor power it off. Just wait. Your RouterStation Pro will reboot by itself.+ 
 +You can check that everything is OK (optional): <code> 
 +ping 192.168.1.20 </code> 
 + 
 +Finally, upload the new firmware to the device through its WAN port using TFTP (and NOT FTP) on the default IP address, 192.168.1.20: <code bash> 
 +tftp 192.168.1.20 -m binary -c put openwrt-ar71xx-generic-ubnt-rspro-squashfs-factory.bin </code>  
 + 
 +  * alternatively with ''atftp'' (better?): <code bash> 
 +atftp --option "timeout 1" --option "mode octet" --put --local-file openwrt-ar71xx-generic-ubnt-rspro-squashfs-factory.bin 192.168.1.20 </code> 
 + 
 +  * or, if using M$ Windows, with ''tftp'' (which is not installed by default): <code> 
 +tftp -i 192.168.1.20 PUT openwrt-ar71xx-generic-ubnt-rspro-squashfs-factory.bin </code> 
 + 
 +Once the upload starts, don't reset it nor power it off. Just wait; the [[toh:ubiquiti:routerstation.pro]] will reboot by itself when it has finished.

 +The network configuration above did not work for me.  I wanted all four wired ports to be on the same bridge and to get their address over DHCP.  After begging for some help on the openwrt forums, I got the following recipe to work:
 +<code>
 +config interface loopback
 +    option ifname    lo
 +    option proto    static
 +    option ipaddr    127.0.0.1
 +    option netmask    255.0.0.0
 +               
 +config  interface lan
 +        option ifname 'eth0 eth1'
 +        option proto dhcp
 +        option type bridge
 +        #option 'netmask' '255.255.255.0'
 +        #option 'ipaddr' '10.11.12.13'
 +        #option 'type' 'sta'
 +       
 +config interface wan
 +    option ifname eth0
 +        option proto dhcp
 +
 +config 'switch'
 +        option name eth1
 +        option reset 1
 +        option enable_vlan 1

 +config  switch_vlan
 +        option device eth1
 +        option vlan 1
 +        option ports "0 1 2 3 4"

 +Install
 +<code>
 +kmod-mmc kmod-usb-serial kmod-usb-serial-ftdi kmod-usb-storage
 +</code>
 +and dependencies
 +
 +Don't forget to install Modules for the filesystem you are using.
