Hi, I currently owns an alfa ap51 running dd-wrt even it is not supported oficially on the list.

for some reason, I got it working by running la fonera firmware

http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/downloads/v24-sp1/Consumer/Fon/Fonera/linux.bin

DD-WRT v24-sp1 (07/26/08) std (SVN revision 9994)

I made the serial port mod and managed to install it by installing the file from the redboot and a tftp server.

with newer fonera firmares it doesnt finish boot, it gives "unsuported board" errors while monitoring the serial output and keeps rebooting forever.

however with the fonera revision 9994 from the previous link, the unit is able to boot and works properly.

however needed to add this script in order to prevent unit autorebooting every 5 minutes

chdir /
/sbin/gpio enable 3

echo "1" >/proc/gpio/3_out
echo "0" >/proc/gpio/3_out

echo "1" >/proc/gpio/3_dir
echo "0" >/proc/gpio/3_dir


however it is not stable all the time as client bridge and needs to be rebooted sometimes. (might be since old firmware)

after two uptime hours this is the output of dmesg > tmp/dmesg.txt

my questions are:

is there any newer firmware I can put on my unit and expect it to work?

any chance alfa ap51 get officially supported? (as you can see, it works almost fine with this relase, maybe with some minor tweaks it can run great, however I dont have the knowledge for that)
