Broadcom Platform

v1.1 Info

Architecture: MIPS
Vendor: Broadcom
Bootloader: CFE 1.0.37-5.11
System-On-Chip: BCM6348
CPU Speed: 240Mhz
Flash-Chip: MX29LV320
Flash size: 4Mb
RAM: ESMT12L8216 64Mbit (8MB) SDRAM x2
Wireless: Broadcom BCM4318 soldered to board
Ethernet: Broadcom BCM5325 ?
Serial: Via mod
JTAG: Via mod

This appears to be based on a Broadcom reference design, as all the chips were made by them.


Case is held together with 4 screws under the rubber feet.

Inside, note grey side wall is attached to the aerial

There is a 3.3v serial header near the front, behind the LED's marked J503

Attach a serial cable and an ethernet cable to the router, connect both to a PC/Linux box with a tftp server in.

Download the generic flash image:

Note: you can try later versions, but low RAM size on this device may cause trouble

Set the address of the tftp to (static IP), start a terminal on the serial at 115200 8n1

power up the router and hit a key when prompted to interrupt CFE

now enter:

flashimage openwrt-96348GW-generic-squashfs-cfe.bin

to flash the device.

On reboot you can now configure your router through LuCi.


There is a JTAG connector next to the serial - pinout unknown.

The device has a button marked "Secure Easy Setup" with a LED behind it. This is currently ignored

Lack of a FOSS driver prevents the ADSL from being used.

TI Platform

v2 Info

Architecture: MIPS
Vendor: Texas Instruments
Bootloader: Adam2
System-On-Chip: TI TNETD7300GDU (AR7WRD) Single Chip Network Processor/AFE/Line Driver
CPU Speed: MIPS 4KEc V4.8 @ 150 MHz
Flash-Chip: AMD AM29LV320DT-90EI 32Mbit (4MB) FLASH ROM
Flash size: 4 MiB
RAM: EtronTech EM639165TS-7 128Mbit (16MB) SDRAM
Wireless: TI TNETW1130GVF 802.11b/g Wireless MiniPCI Card [TI ACX111 (vlynq)]
Ethernet: Infineon/ADMTek ADM6996L 6 port 10/100 Mb/s (4 ports usable)
Serial: Yes

This is essentially the same unit as the AG241v2, except for the wireless controller.

NOTE: You cannot plug directly those pins to your pc serial port. You need a RS232-TTL level adapter, see port.serial.


The settings for the serial console are "38400 bauds, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit (38400 8N1)", with hardware and software flow control both disabled.


The default network configuration is:

Interface Name Description Default configuration
br-lan LAN & WiFi
eth0 LAN ports (1 to 4) None
eth1 Unknown Disabled
wlan0 Wireless Disabled
