I recently acquired a Sitecom WLR4000 Gigabit N Router.
Since this router (series) is quite popular in the Netherlands after one of the big warehouses made a discount deal after it, I want to get DD-WRT running on it.
As you can see it's a pretty basic layout: Gbit switch, processor, 2x WiFi etcetera...
I tried to pry of the CPU cooler, but unfortunately it's glued on quite well and I didn't want to break anything.
As I'm a complete beginner in this field of hacking, I wanted to call in your help to try to see if you've got some pointers not to unnecessarily brick the device.
I assume a logical start would be to solder in a header in the UART port labeled CN1 and connect it with a 3.3V modulator to my PC, right?
Can you tell me anything about the other header, labeled CN102? I assume it's some JTAG connection, but it could be anything of course.
I've got access to all kinds of tools including digital scopes and analyzers. I'd like the opportunity to give something back to the community, while broadening my knowledge, that's why I don't want to donate the device to science, but dissect it myself.
