Hi there,

I own a FritzBox 7170 (version 1) and like to know if it's possible to port the DD-WRT over to these boxes (AFAIK all boxes share the same architecture..)?


Thanks in advance,
Martin.. Smile

Come on guys, am I not worth an answer?

I just want(ed) a simple "YES!" or "NO!"..

No clue but as you can see in the list of supported devices in the wifi it is not supported as of now.

Whether it can be supported, that answer lies in the chipset used. I would guess "no" since, other than you say, not all "boxes" share the same architecture at all...

According to http://www.wehavemorefun.de/fritzbox/Hardware (only German, sorry.. but I can translate if you want), all boxes share the same MIPS-CPU and the main difference is often only if there are 32 or 16MB of flash memory..

Especially the wiki-entry talks about
Quote:
Innereien

Die Boxen basieren auf der integrierten Prozessorfamilie AR7 (http://focus.ti.com/general/docs/bcg/bcgprodcontent.tsp?templateId=6116&navigationId=12111&path=templatedata/cm/product/data/ar7) von Texas Instruments (http://www.ti.com).
and that means

Inwards

The boxes are based on the integrated AR7-processor-family (http://focus.ti.com/general/docs/bcg/bcgprodcontent.tsp?templateId=6116&navigationId=12111&path=templatedata/cm/product/data/ar7) von Texas Instruments (http://www.ti.com).
in English.. ;)

Also, the wiki says:
Quote:
Sie unterscheiden sich im wesentlichen durch ihre Anschlussmöglichkeiten.
which means
Quote:
The main differences are their connectivities.
(right below the model list).

Allright. Now a developer will have to answer whether that is a CPU/hardware combo that dd-wrt can/will be ported to.
