Prolink PWH2004

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 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 has ended in 2022.
19.07.10 was the last official build for 4/32 devices.

These units have 32M RAM, 8M flash, a serial port with pins marked on circuit board (CMOS level!), 4+1 LAN ports, 1xUSB port and 802.11n WLAN. The device is apparently also sold as Abocom WR5205.

Install OpenWrt (generic explanation)

FIXME Please add the installation procedure here.

Firmware can be compiled from “trunk”:

  1. choose Ralink RT288x/RT305x as target
  2. and RT305x boards as subtarget.
  3. Network interface needs boot option board=.... (WiP)
  4. For WLAN, include rt2800-pci module under Wireless drivers.

The USB port does not appear to work yet (2010/09/12).
