ZyXEL P-2812HNU-F1

Please note: at the time of this comment, jan 2014, none of these ZyXEL routers have available Openwrt downloads. However, Zyxel have provided the source code, proving themselves as a responsible manufacturer. There is some interest in getting Openwrt to work on there routers.

Branded and nonbranded

Both F1 and F3 are availabe as branded ("crippled" from local ISP) and nonbranded (Zyxel firmware updates can be applied).

DG: And i guess the same is for the P-2812HNU-51c? (Update: The 51c version is a Broadcom device!)

How to connect to the Serial Port of this specific device:

1 GND 2 — 3 RX 4 TX 5 +3.3v

Only on my P-2812HNU-F1 the Samsung chip ends with a 'D' :) Which means the ECC handling is different! You can see a little part of the serial connector (J8) on the right top of the next picture.
