 +**NOTE:** These informations refer to the WAP3205 **NOT** WAP3205 v2 which seems to have different hardware! 
 + 
 +The board is the same one used on the NBG-419N, but has 2 Ethernet ports instead of 4 LAN + 1 WAN. (and has no WiFi on/off switch) 
 + 
 +The images for the NBG-419N are compatible with the WAP3205, as they have same hardware internally. 
 + 
 +**NOTE:** when configuring the switch or VLANs, currently OpenWRT lets you setup or tag 5 ethernet ports since internally there are 5 ports on the switch, but only 2 are wired to physical ports!

-Unfortunately, the firmware cannot be installed by factory web configuration utility. Someone may try to build the sources from ftp://opensource.zyxel.com/NBG-419N to check what is needed for it. Open the case, connect a TTL-to-RS232 converter cable (not the standard serial cable!) - see [[doc/hardware/port.serial]]. I used Nokia CA-50 cable. Port speed is 57600, 8 databits, no parity, 1 stopbits, both hardware and software flow control must be disabled. The router does not power on when serial cable is connected, so you have to connect the cable after powering on. If you miss the bootloader (U-Boot) prompt, wait until ZyXEL Linux boots and issue ''halt'' or ''reboot''.
