OEM installation using the TFTP method

  1. Download the OpenWrt …factory.bin image to your computer
  2. On the RP-WD009, press the reset button and keep it pressed.
  3. Power up the RP-WD009. Keep pressing the reset button for 10 more seconds until the Globe LED lights up.
  4. Attach your Computer to the Ethernet port. Assign yourself the address 10.10.10.1/24.
  5. Access the recovery page at http://10.10.10.128 and upload the OpenWrt …factory.bin image.
  6. The flashing will take around 1 minute. The device will reboot automatically into OpenWrt.

Upgrading OpenWrt

generic.sysupgrade

FIXME These are generic instructions. Update with your router's specifics.

LuCI Web Upgrade Process

  • Browse to http://192.168.1.1/cgi-bin/luci/mini/system/upgrade/ LuCI Upgrade URL
  • 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.

NOTE: The IP address is fixed to 192.168.1.1. If your router has another netmask than 192.168.1.x (e.g. 192.168.0.x or 10.x.x.x) you probably have no internet access from the device. Then you must change the fixed IP address from the terminal, but to access the terminal you have to connect the device wired to another free ethernet port of your computer and set in the configuration (System preferences ⇒ Network on macOS, Control Panel ⇒ Network on Windows), select the available Ethernet port and the IP manually to 192.168.1.x (where x is 2…254) and router to 192.168.1.1. Connect the Filehub to that port with a cable and login via ssh root@192.168.1.1. Than change the fixed IP address :

  • uci set network.lan.ipaddr='r.r.r.y'
  • uci set network.lan.gateway='r.r.r.r'
  • uci set network.lan.dns='r.r.r.r'
  • uci commit
  • service network restart

Replace r.r.r with the proper netmask, e.g. 192.168.0 or 10.20.30 which should match your LAN and your router. Replace r.r.r.r with the LAN IP address of your router. Select the address r.r.r.y outside of the DHCP range, e.g. when the DHCP starts is 192.168.0.100, use a number below 100 which is still free.

The device will disconnect and now connect the device wired with one of the LAN ports of your router. Now it should be reachable with the new IP address, i.e. 'ssh root@r.r.r.y' where r.r.r.y is the new IP address. When it fails, do a ping or a port scan (e.g. nmap). Now you have internet access on the device and can perform the upgrade.

There are two command line methods for upgrading:

  • sysupgrade
  • mtd

Note: It is important that you put the firmware image into the ramdisk (/tmp) before you start flashing.

sysupgrade

  • Login as root via SSH on 192.168.1.1, then enter the following commands:
cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/XXX/xxx.abc
sysupgrade /tmp/xxx.abc

mtd

If sysupgrade does not support this router, use mtd.

  • Login as root via SSH on 192.168.1.1, then enter the following commands:
cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/XXX/xxx.abc
mtd write /tmp/xxx.abc linux && reboot

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 LAN & WiFi 192.168.1.1/24
vlan0 (eth0.0) LAN port (1) None
wlan0 2.4G WiFi Disabled
wlan1 5G WiFi 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
