Topic : Linksys wrt54g, backfire 10.03 and channel 0, -1

Hello and thank you for this interesting project.

I have couple of old unused WRT54G(L) routers and want to experiment with Broadband Hamnet.

Few questions:

  1.  Is there any experience with configuring these routers to work out of ISM Wifi channels the same way as with ubq devices, for example on channel 0, -1, etc. 
  2. Looking at OpenWRT source for Backfire 10.03 it seems that there is some room for experiments with b43legacy drivers, which have some problems in psk mode according to OpenWRT wrt54g wiki, but it does not matter for Broadband Hamnet usage as psk is not in use. Anyone has experience with patching b43legacy drivers to make these routers work on channel 0, -1 or can anyone confirm that its HW is capable to tune to these channels?
  3. Does Broadband Hamnet support Backfire 10.03? Is there any chance to integrate it with this OpenWRT version?

73!

Topic : Webserver

I was thinking the same there here. I live in the middle of nowhere (The closest Wal-Mart is an hour away). There are 33 hams in the community I live in. I was thinking of starting with a PBX, try and find some SIP phones (cheap) that I could configure and loan out to other hams. From there goto e-mail, web server, etc. Could be fun...

Topic : Upgrade WRT54G from bbhn 1.0.0 to 3.1.0

I resolved the issue. Microsoft Edge was changing the suffix from .trx to .man on the 3.1.0 firmware file as it was being saved to my PC. I switched the browser to Firefox which saved the file with the .trx suffix as it should be. Uploads of the new 3.1.0 firmware to the WRT54G nodes proceeded normally after making this discovery.

Topic : Upgrade WRT54G from bbhn 1.0.0 to 3.1.0

I have been away from BBHN for several years. My WRT54G 4-node network is running on 1.0.0. I want to upgrade all nodes to the latest firmware which appears to be 3.1.0.

When I visit the firmware download page for Linksys, the only firmware I see to upgrade an exiting mesh node is bbhn-3.1.0-brcm-2.4-squashfs.trx. When I download this file it gets saved under the filename bbhn-3.1.0-brcm-2.4-squashfs.man on my laptop (the suffix changes from .trx to .man).

When I use localnode8080 to connect to a node, go to Administration>Firmware Update, select the bbhn-3.1.0-brcom-2.4-squashfs.man file and click Update, I receive an error message saying "Firmware CANNOT be updated - the uploaded file is not recognized."

Do I need to upload interim releases

instead of trying to go directly from 1.0.0 to 3.1.0? Any help would be appreciated.


Al, WD4A

Topic : username/password

Ok, Stupidity has struck. (again) I did my first node a month ago. Then had surgery. Now back to work on the mesh and I can't remember what I used for user and password. Have tried all combo's of my normal Ham stuff and nothing works. Anyway to get it back?

Topic : Can I use this router

The wrtp54g hardware shows to have enough storage and ram to work. In addition, there are posts in this forum on how to use the existing firmware with an ID byte change.  Two items are needed. Do a google search for "device unlock wrtp54g" for the process to become non-vendor specific and upload other firmware. After that, you will need to modify the firmware file to change the ID byte before using our firmware.

You can always search for any topic by typing something in the "search" at top right of each page. That starts a full content, dedicated, single site search for anything published here. Be sure and post your results to guide others using this hardware.

Topic : Can I use this router

I have a wrtp54g version 2 router that was originally use for a Vontage  VoIP phone system. The wireless router is a standard wrt54g v2 router and works alone as a regular router. It has two telephone jacks built in for use with analog phones. Inside the unit is an A to D converter for the telephones to be used on Vontage as VoIP. My question is: can this router be flash programmed as a regular wrt54g with the ham-mesh software to be used on the mesh ? I am not too concerned about the A to D and VoIP phone part but it would also be nice if I could use them. I can always plug a digital phone into one of the other four ports on this router. Any thoughts on this ? I would appreciate any and all comments. I don't want to brick the unit trying if not compatible. Thanks, to each and all who have any helpful input. I'm not computer literate but do understand most of the basics.

Topic : BDAs with Long Coax Run Solution?

Well, the big thing as I see it is that in that 140' run of LMR-400 is that the loss will be 9.24dB. This means you will have about 1/8 of the power availible at the antenna...Not so good. I would like to see 6' or less of LMR400. Regards, Phil KK6PE
