about to get one, thanks`

"But NETGEAR was kind enough to tell me that the radio is the 3x3 AR9103 and the CPU/MAC/Baseband the AR9132. The 10/100 switch is an Atheros AR8216 6 port 10/100 and I could clearly tell from looking at the board that there is 32 MB of RAM and 4 MB of flash."

These seem to be on sale at Staples and Amazon here in the USA this weekend. Anyone confirm the hardware details?

Looks like this has OpenWRT support? http://downloads.openwrt.org/people/agb/wnr2000/

The guys on OpenWRT seem to suggest that it uses redboot and openWRT as basis for the factory firmware.

Can anyone help me get somewhere with this router? I have the latest Netgear firmware (V1.1.3.9NA) on it.

I am able to telnet into the system and it has busybox v1.01 with ash shell on it.

You have to use the NetGear "telnetenable" trick on port 23 to get into telnet. Once on, I do indeed observe files on the system (functions.sh) with references to OpenWRT origins in them.

Info on telnetenable: http://wiki.openwrt.org/OpenWrtDocs/Hardware/Netgear/TelnetConsole

I'm pretty nube at doing this, and only an intermediate Linux user.

I am willing to open my router up for someone on the public internet if they want to poke around in it...

anything of use?

(edited out remainder of meminfo)

/sbin/mtd is on the system, so I can use that to write new flash... or the web interface upload system. What else do we need to know, any flash that I can try that would be similar to this system?

I managed to compile the netgear firmware on Ubuntu 8.04 32bit. It installed ok, but after booting my own firmware the router the website returned 404 on all pages. So no way to reflash from the Netgear webpages. So I've soldered up rs232 port. There are header pins installed on J1 of the system board. Got in!

Code:

Fouled up my router pretty good. If you hold down reset (for like 30 seconds) while you turn on power to unit... it goes into tftp recover mode.

I took the RF shield off the router motherboard, the WiFi chip is a AR9103. That makes it a 3x3 MIMO router.

For hardware hackers: I also notice that 2 of the 3 antennas on the motherboard (etched shapes) have provisions for an external antenna cable. The third (center) has a pad but nothing soldered on.

Note that although I've been able to boot current OpenWRT via tftpboot, I don't have wireless working. The factory-provided firmware (based on OpenWRT) seems to use these drivers:

Code:

The Linux ath9k driver now supports this router (ar9103 wireless chip). is available now in compat-wireless now and is scheduled for kernel 2.6.30 inclusion.

OpenWRT works on this router with tftpboot... but the u-boot does a checksum of the firmware on each boot that needs to be disabled. The GPL download includes u-boot, so it is possible to hack it.

Anyone with the u-boot skills?
