This device is NOT RECOMMENDED for future use with OpenWrt due to low flash/ram. DO NOT BUY DEVICES WITH 4MB FLASH / 32MB RAM if you intend to flash an up-to-date and secure OpenWrt version (18.06 or later) onto it! See 4/32 warning for details.
1) This device does not have sufficient resources (flash and/or RAM) to provide secure and reliable operation.
This means that even setting a password or changing simple network settings might not be possible any more, rendering the device effectively useless. See OpenWrt on 4/32 devices what you can do now.
2) OpenWrt support for this device will end after 2019.
19.07 will be the last official build for 4/32 devices. After 19.07, no further OpenWrt images will be built for 4/32 devices. See OpenWrt on 4/32 devices what you can do now.
This router is an Annex B version of D-Link DSL-524T.
The installation procedure is almost the same as for D-Link DSL-524T, so use the link above for the full installation procedure.
The main differences are:
Both username and password for ADAM2 bootloader are adam2, not ADAM2. The bootloader of my device listens by default on port 184.108.40.206 at startup.
Flashing router on Linux (kernel 2.6.35-24) was EXTREMELY slow. (Put “debug” command before “put …” command during installation procedure and you may see.) I tried Windows 7 Home edition, but a connection error appeared. At last, FTP client in Windows XP Professional did the job - it took only about 3 minutes to put the firmware on the router. So I recommend you to use this OS, but I hope that it is an issue of my device or someone will find another way to do a sucessful flash.
I use Backfire 10.03.1-rc4 and it works like a charm – it's uptime is in weeks. My unit has been modified by adding heatsinks on chips.
Changing Annex A to Annex B
If you use generic firmware “openwrt-ar7-squashfs.bin”, you may have to add Annex B support to it - it contains only Annex A module. However, it is very easy to do this job: find a package with “kmod-sangam-atm-annex-b” in its name in /package subdirectory of the release you have used. On your router, remove original “kmod-sangam-atm-annex-a” package (using opkg or web interface) and activate dropbear-sshd - telnet into your router and insert new root password using passwd command. Then put “annex-b” package to your router by scp and install it using opkg.
