OpenWRT over DLink DWL2100AP ?

Saturday, October 6th, 2007

There a new second version of the tutorials /manual for re-flashing Atheros based hardware /DWL2100AP clones /appeared .

I did not covered it all but seems that is added tutorial for installing OpenWRT as a the new part – which is quite interesting. I must chek will the wireless will be working whit last versions of the Kamikaze firmware.

Another thing are schematics for jtag cables. Which is needed for re-flashing dlink dwl2100ap.

The main difficulty for installing openwrt is deferent flash types used in different revision of the access point.
