[edit] NEWD2 support for some routers

This is in relation to the Eko firmware builds that have NEWD2 in the filename.

If you can confirm that NEWD2 will or won't work for a particular model, please update this article.

Note about Micro builds. There seems to be some confusion about the Micro build of NEWD2. Micro builds were intended for the neutered routers only...Micro can run on some other models, however, it's not advised.

Never load any Micro build on a router with a Gigabit switch like the WRT310N router (including NEWD_micro). You will Brick it....the micro build does not have the drivers required for the Gigabit switch and will cause an endless reboot loop if loaded.

If your router model is not in the has not been tested.

BRICK at your own've been warned...JTAG (or Serial) will be needed to recover if it won't work.

Added avoid confusion regarding what is what here.

NEWD = Kernel K2.4.37 and wl driver =
NEWD2 = Kernel K2.4.37 and wl driver =

You can view this using "wl ver" command...and "uname -a" command.

[edit] Confirmed models that WILL work with NEWD2:

All k2.6 builds use NEWD2. Every model that requires k2.6 builds must use k2.6 NEWD2 builds and are not included in this list of k2.4 NEWD2 support.
