RouterStation Pro

DebWRT

Build image

  • cd debwrt
  • make menuconfig
  • Target system is: Atheros AR71xx/AR7240/AR913x
  • Subtarget is: Generic
  • Target Profile is: Ubiquiti RouterStation Pro
  • (if you are using usb drive instead of sd card) Enter in “Kernel Configuration” and edit the device in “Default kernel command line” from sda1 to sdb1
  • (optional) make openwrt/menuconfig
  • (optional) make openwrt/kernel_menuconfig
  • make

Prepare external rootfs (SD card or USB disk)

  • Partition the USB Disk/Stick/Compact? Flash Card/SD Card:
/dev/sdb1 - DEBWRT_ROOT - Linux - ext3 - Rest of available size
/dev/sdb2 - DEBWRT_SWAP - Linux Swap - 128MB
  • Create filesystems
mkfs.ext3 -L DEBWRT_ROOT /dev/sdb1
tune2fs -c 0 -i 0 /dev/sdb1
mkswap /dev/sdb2

Copy rootfs on your SD card or USB disk

  • (if you have not automount) mkdir -p /media/DEBWRT_ROOT ; mount /dev/sdb1 /media/DEBWRT_ROOT
  • make debian/rootfs/install (Be careful! An rm -Rf on /media/DEBWRT_ROOT is done first!)

Flash firmware (kernel)

Kernel upgrade

Using “make openwrt/kernel_menuconfig” you can tune your kernel configuration, after your customization you can compile running “make” (NOTE: if you don't have an older enviroment you must follow the instruction to build a DebWRT image)
To use the newer kernel you must unpack bin/ar71xx-*-*-default/debwrt-modules-ar71xx-generic_UBNTRSPRO-*-*.tar.gz in /media/DEBWRT_ROOT/ (assuming that you have mounted DebWRT rootfs on /media/DEBWRT_ROOT/) and follow the instruction to flash DebWRT kernel

OpenWRT

Build image

  • svn co svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk/
  • cd trunk
  • ./scripts/feeds update -a
  • ./scripts/feeds install -a
  • make menuconfig
  • Target system is: Atheros AR71xx/AR7240/AR913x
  • Subtarget is: Generic
  • Target Profile is: Ubiquiti RouterStation Pro
  • make

Flash firmware

  • Connect your computer to the WAN port
  • Configure your network like this: 192.168.1.1/255.255.255.0 (anything but 192.168.1.20)
  • Plug in your RouterStation Pro
  • Press the reset button and hold it for about 10 seconds (you should see the third led flash a bit and the second on come up)
  • You should be able to ping 192.168.1.20 now
  • Send the firmware image with tftp in binary mode:
$ tftp 192.168.1.20
tftp> binary
tftp> put openwrt-...-factory.bin

Re-enable LAN ports

  • Install swconfig then:
swconfig dev eth1 set reset 1
swconfig dev eth1 set enable_vlan 1
swconfig dev eth1 vlan 0 set ports '0 1 2 3 4'
swconfig dev eth1 set apply 1
