Hardware Highlights

CPU Ram Flash Network USB Serial JTag
Atheros AR9344@533MHz 128MiB 16MiB 1x 1000Mbit No Yes Maybe
  • SoC: Atheros AR9344 rev 2
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n
  • 1x Gigabit Ethernet ports 1 with PoE (Power over Ethernet)
  • 1x RJ45 console port
  • Powered via 12V type M barrel connector

Installation

Flash Layout

FIXME Please check out the article Flash.Layout. It contains an example and a couple of explanations.

OEM easy installation

FIXME

OEM installation using the TFTP method

At the moment you can flash the db120 images using U-boot command

#rootfs
tftp 0x80060000 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-db120-rootfs-squashfs.bin;erase 0x9f050000 +5E0000;cp.b 80060000 0x9f050000 $filesize
#kernel
tftp 0x80060000 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-db120-kernel.bin;erase 0x9fd50000 +110000;cp.b 80060000 0x9fd50000 110000

Than you can restart your ap.

Here some other boot-env vars involved:

bootcmd=bootm 0x9fd50000
bootargs=console=ttyS0,115200 root=31:2 init=/sbin/init mtdparts=ath-nor0:256k(u-boot),64k(u-env),13M(rootfsA),1536k(knlA),64k(bData),64k(bIndi),1M(apconf),64k(ART)
ipaddr=192.168.100.46
serverip=192.168.100.11

Specific Configuration

FIXME The network is not working at the moment
