Hi guys, first post here, and I hope it's in the right section.

I recently purchased a Belkin F5D8235-4 v2 as an upgrade from my WRT54GS running DD-WRT. I mainly needed a new router that supported Gigabit LAN (Wireless N was a plus).

I've looked all over to see if it is a candidate for future DD-WRT support, but I've found nothing other than a few posts in another thread saying it has the same hardware as another router that may be supported.

Does anyone know about this? It's not listed at all in the device database. I'd just like to know if I'll have future support for this device (I really hope so).

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out.

Hate to bump, but does anyone know?

I have found that the OpenWRT Wiki seems to have a well documented account of the hardware in the F5D8235-4.

I assume this could be of use in identifying whether or not DD-WRT is/could be compatible with this router.

It's not listed as a supported device and ralink is mostly unsupported.

I'm curious, I've heard Ralink supplies documentation for all of their chipsets without the need for a NDA. Based on this, I assume DD-WRT developers would have access to this routers hardware documentation.

Is there even a way to tell if DD-WRT can possibly be supported on this device?

I really hate bumping, but this forum moves fast.

I read all through this thread, and it does seem that the Airlink 101 AR670W has the same CPU and WiFi chip as the AR670W. I'm not sure about the wired NIC itself.

Assuming DD-WRT were to be ported to the AR670W (it's a WIP currently), I'm assuming it would be possible to run it on the F5D8235-4, since they use the same CPU and WiFi chip, correct?

I'd be grateful if anyone knows if these two routers use the same wired NIC.

At least I know the CPU/WiFi chip can be supported in the future.

Edit: I noticed DD-WRT also has a target for this CPU in the SVN.

It is more complicated than just matching the CPU to an existing build. So, unless there is an announcement, I would think you are SOL.

I'm also looking into porting dd-wrt for the N+. I'm currently working on building a compatible build environment, but it is a side project, and I really hope to see dd-wrt's devs be more successful than me in doing this. I keep a blog with the current state of the project here: http://www.jim-gall.com/?page_id=193

Too bad, I also wish the Belkin FD5823504 was supported, the factory firmware is pretty poor indeed.

It's a fairly new router on the market so I'm still hoping it will get ported eventually. It is after all one of the best N+ routers out there, good range and stability, Ranlink chipset)

I wish I could afford to send you guys one of these.

I bought one this weekend and returned it after a day. The stock firmware makes the router unusable (at least on my network). Too bad, it's a $75 Wireless N router with gigabit and USB. Seems like the best collection of features at this price.

Maybe it will help that the Belkin firmware is linux based and open source under the GPL, with more details on this thread: http://www.jim-gall.com/?page_id=193

If it's open source that might allow for easy reverse engineering of what's needed.

From my research, the following modules of the Belkin firmware are provided as binary-only. This is the only major hurdle to get over, otherwise, it should work with the generic support -
Quote:
ConfigRa0 (RT28xx radio tool)
conn_log
disk_info
dslmode
easyconf_BELKIN
easystorage
easytest
eco
fwupgrade-IXP
gpio_ctrl
httpd
if_traffic
igmp
init
iptbl (not sure if this is just a binary of iptables)
l2tpd
libstorage
mssid_redirect
ntpclient
nvram
pppoe_dial
radvdset
reset_default
rt2880_ate
rt2880_flash
rt2880_mii_mgr
rt2880_mtd
rt2880_phy_tool
rtl8366 (pretty sure this is the ethernet phy driver)
samba-3.0.2_set (settings app)
sysinit (seems to be gpio config, usb config, and init binary)
udhcpdset


I know that most of these things are just parts of the rt2880 driver set, and various other tools that are available elsewhere (source code, that is). I haven't got enough know-how to make any of this work, unfortunately.
