COMFAST CF-E110N

Under Construction!
This page is currently under construction. You can edit the article to help completing it.

The COMFAST CF-E110N is an outdoor 2.4 GHz wireless CPE. It is based on the Qualcomm Atheros QCA9531 or QCA9533 SoC, and features two RJ45 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports with PoE in and a 300 Mbps 2.4 GHz 802.11b/g/n radio connected to an internal 2T2R 11 dBi atenna.

Installation

Flash Layout

FIXME Find out flash layout, then add the flash layout table here (copy, paste, modify the example).

Please check out the article Flash layout. It contains examples and explanations that describe how to document the flash layout.

From the stock firmware web GUI

The stock firmware is a customized OpenWrt version. Plain OpenWrt can be installed from the web interface; just upload the sysupgrade image and flash it.

Note: the router will keep the previous configuration, including the stock password. After flashing, enter failsafe mode to reset it.

From U-Boot via recovery web page

The U-boot bootloader of this device contains a recovery HTTP server from which to upload the firmware.

Instructions

  1. Push the reset button (and keep it pressed) with the device off
  2. Power the device on (keep the reset button pressed)
  3. Keep pressing the reset button for 8~9 seconds, the LEDs will blink during this time
  4. Release reset button
  5. Manually configure your computer to 192.168.1.X/24 (e.g.: 192.168.1.2/24)
  6. Head to the recovery page at http://192.168.1.1
  7. Upload the firmware

From U-Boot via TFTP

You can read the generic OpenWrt instructions here.

Specific values needed for TFTP

Bootloader tftp server IPv4 address 192.168.1.10/24
Bootloader MAC address (special) N/A
Firmware tftp image Latest OpenWrt release sysupgrade image. Note: remane it to “firmware_auto.bin”
TFTP transfer window 1 seconds
TFTP window start approximately 5 seconds after power on

Upgrading OpenWrt

You can read the general OpenWrt upgrading instructions here.

LuCI web upgrade process

  • Browse to http://192.168.1.1/cgi-bin/luci/admin/system/flashops LuCI's upgrade URL (replace 192.168.1.1 with the router's IP)
  • Upload image file for sysupgrade to LuCI
  • Wait for reboot

Terminal Upgrade Process

If you don't have a GUI (LuCI) available, you can alternatively upgrade via the command line.

sysupgrade

  • Login as root via SSH on your router, then enter the following commands:
cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/XXX/xxx.abc
sysupgrade /tmp/xxx.abc

Debricking

Failsafe mode

Basic configuration

Basic configuration After flashing, proceed with this.
Set up your Internet connection, configure wireless, configure USB port, etc.

Specific Configuration

FIXME Please fill in real values for this device, then remove the EXAMPLEs

Network interfaces

The default network configuration is:

Interface Name Description Default configuration
br-lan EXAMPLE LAN & WiFi EXAMPLE 192.168.1.1/24
vlan0 (eth0.0) EXAMPLE LAN ports (1 to 4) EXAMPLE None
vlan1 (eth0.1) EXAMPLE WAN port EXAMPLE DHCP
wl0 EXAMPLE WiFi EXAMPLE Disabled

Switch Ports (for VLANs)

FIXME Please fill in real values for this device, then remove the EXAMPLEs

Numbers 0-3 are Ports 1-4 as labeled on the unit, number 4 is the Internet (WAN) on the unit, 5 is the internal connection to the router itself. Don't be fooled: Port 1 on the unit is number 3 when configuring VLANs. vlan0 = eth0.0, vlan1 = eth0.1 and so on.

Port Switch port
Internet (WAN) EXAMPLE 4
LAN 1 EXAMPLE 3
LAN 2 EXAMPLE 2
LAN 3 EXAMPLE 1
LAN 4 EXAMPLE 0

Buttons

The device has a push button, labeled “RST”, and a two-positions slide switch, labeled “STA AP. The push button is used to reset the device, restore it to factory defaults or enter into failsafe mode. The slide switch is meant to change between station or access point using the stock firmware.

Button GPIO port Event
RST 17 reset
Slide switch GPIO port Values Event
STA AP 1 0: AP. 1: STA none

Info

FIXME

  1. This table is automatically generated, once the correct filters for Brand and Model are set.
  2. If you see “Nothing.” instead of a table, please edit this section and adjust the filters with the proper Brand and Model. Just try, it's easy.
  3. If you still don't see a table here, or a table filled with '¿': Is there already a Techdata page available for COMFAST CF-E110N ? If not: Create one.
  4. If you see a table with the desired device data, everything is OK and you can delete this text and the <WRAP> that encloses it.
  5. If it still doesn't work: Don't panic, calm down, take a deep breath and contact a wiki admin (tmomas) for help.
