VONETS VHA300

Vonets VHA300 is a MT6720 SoC based 'baseboard' that is used in several other Vonets devices. It's the board that contains the SoC itself. Depending on the device, other option boards are added that determine the final function of a given device. (Homeplug, Smartplug, measure device, controller, dimmer, switch, etc.)

The Vonets VHA300 is not yet supported. There is no ready image available just yet. The manufacturer seems to be using OpenWRT by default for this device <yet to be confirmed>. This makes the VHA300 a good candidate to support.

Vonets VHA300

FIXME

Getting started with a new Device Page

  1. This is an empty template that suggests the information that should be present on a well-constructed Device Page. This means, that you have to fill it with life and information.
  2. There are several "fixme" tags with text on a light background (like this text) throughout this template. As you fill in the page, remove those tags so that people can judge its completeness.
  3. When there are no more "fixme" tags left, delete this one too, along with the <WRAP> that encloses it.

Keep the articles modular

  • Please include only model specific information, omit bla,bla and put everything generic into separate articles
  • If you have no time to write certain stuff, link to generic.overview
  • basic.config should lead the way, do not explain this again
  • DO NOT provide a complete howto here! Instead groom the general HowTos.

Supported Versions

FIXME

  1. The tables below are automatically generated, once the correct filters for Brand and Model are set.
  2. If the tables below show information other than VONETS VHA300 , everything is OK and you can delete this text and the <WRAP> that encloses it.
  3. If the tables below contain "Nothing found", it means that either
    1. the dataentry page for VONETS VHA300 is missing. Please create a new dataentry page first, then reload this page. The tables should then contain $something. If they do, delete this text and the <WRAP> that encloses it.
    2. filters are not set correctly → Please edit this section and adjust the filters with the proper Brand and Model. Just try, it's easy. The tables should then contain $something. If they do, delete this text and the <WRAP> that encloses it.
  4. If the tables still contain "Nothing found": Don't panic, calm down, take a deep breath and contact a wiki admin (tmomas) for help.

Installation

Flash Layout

FIXME Find out flash layout, then add the flash layout table here (copy, paste, modify the example).

Please check out the article Flash layout. It contains examples and explanations that describe how to document the flash layout.

OEM easy installation

FIXME The instructions below are for Broadcom devices and only serve as an example. Remove / modify them if they do not apply to this particular device!

This section deals with

  • How you install OpenWrt from a device freshly opened
  • The steps required such as reset to factory defaults if the device has already been configured

Note: Reset router to factory defaults if it has been previously configured.

OEM installation using the TFTP method

Specific values needed for tftp

FIXME Enter values for "FILL-IN" below

Bootloader tftp server IPv4 address FILL-IN
Bootloader MAC address (special) FILL-IN
Firmware tftp image Latest OpenWrt release (NOTE: Name must contain "tftp")
TFTP transfer window FILL-IN seconds
TFTP window start approximately FILL-IN seconds after power on
TFTP client required IP address FILL-IN

Upgrading OpenWrt

generic.sysupgrade

FIXME These are generic instructions. Update with your router's specifics.

LuCI Web Upgrade Process

Terminal Upgrade Process

If you don't have a GUI (LuCI) available, you can alternatively upgrade via the command line. There are two command line methods for upgrading:

  • sysupgrade
  • mtd

Note: It is important that you put the firmware image into the ramdisk (/tmp) before you start flashing.

sysupgrade

  • Login as root via SSH on 192.168.1.1, then enter the following commands:

cd /tmp
wget http://http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/XXX/xxx.abc
sysupgrade /tmp/xxx.abc

mtd

If sysupgrade does not support this router, use mtd.

  • Login as root via SSH on 192.168.1.1, then enter the following commands:

cd /tmp
wget http://http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/XXX/xxx.abc
mtd write /tmp/xxx.abc linux && reboot

Debricking

Failsafe mode

Basic configuration

Basic configuration After flashing, proceed with this.
Set up your Internet connection, configure wireless, configure USB port, etc.

Specific Configuration

FIXME Please fill in real values for this device, then remove the EXAMPLEs

Network interfaces

The default network configuration is:

Interface Name Description Default configuration
br-lan EXAMPLE LAN & WiFi EXAMPLE 192.168.1.1/24
vlan0 (eth0.0) EXAMPLE LAN ports (1 to 4) EXAMPLE None
vlan1 (eth0.1) EXAMPLE WAN port EXAMPLE DHCP
wl0 EXAMPLE WiFi EXAMPLE Disabled

Switch Ports (for VLANs)

FIXME Please fill in real values for this device, then remove the EXAMPLEs

Numbers 0-3 are Ports 1-4 as labeled on the unit, number 4 is the Internet (WAN) on the unit, 5 is the internal connection to the router itself. Don't be fooled: Port 1 on the unit is number 3 when configuring VLANs. vlan0 = eth0.0, vlan1 = eth0.1 and so on.

Port Switch port
Internet (WAN) EXAMPLE 4
LAN 1 EXAMPLE 3
LAN 2 EXAMPLE 2
LAN 3 EXAMPLE 1
LAN 4 EXAMPLE 0

Buttons

hardware.button on howto use and configure the hardware button(s). Here, we merely name the buttons, so we can use them in the above Howto.

FIXME Please fill in real values for this device, then remove the EXAMPLEs

The VONETS VHA300 has the following buttons:

  3. If you still don't see a table here, or a table filled with '¿': Is there already a Techdata page available for VONETS VHA300 ? If not: Create one.
  4. If you see a table with the desired device data, everything is OK and you can delete this text and the <WRAP> that encloses it.
  5. If it still doesn't work: Don't panic, calm down, take a deep breath and contact a wiki admin (tmomas) for help.
