Thursday, October 18th, 2007

Here You can find very good tutorial how to resurrect bricked Netgear router WGT264 without using a jtag cable :

There are some interesting steps in this tutorial. First is the step 4 were the trendnet firmware is stripped or converted from .img format to .elf file.

“… Step 4.

The TRENDnet firmware needs to converted from its .img format to the .elf format so that the file is bootable over TFTP. I used and the following Linux command to strip the superfluous header information :-

dd if=510APB_1121US.img of=510APB_1121US.elf skip=52 bs=1
Second interesting thing is that the author is used AP firmware to reflash router. May be will be possable to reflash a router and use different wireless modes like AP client or WDS ?

Dual Radio Router Interfacing Project

Monday, September 10th, 2007


I missed this, but looks like there is a way to interface second usb wlan dongle whit a cheap wifi router.

Recently searching for one open wifi book I found this :

On router running “Kamikaze” version of OpenWRT these gays are able to interface and compile drivers for ZyDas usb radio.

Here is a link to pdf file whit some pictures inside dual-radio-and-USB-ant.pdf

It will be interesting if there are possibility to use any of modern thing on the market to build something similar. The Netgear router used in this project is no longer available. As I know one of the little things whit a usb port are some of Asus routers, but there is broadcom not atheros radios inside.
