New router - Belkin-style F5D7630

Discussion in 'Broadband' started by Nicholas Thomas, Apr 22, 2006.

  1. Sort-of further to the Cisco thread :). My ancient WAP11 died on me last
    night, so in a pre-pay-day panic, I had to go to Tesco and buy the only
    wireless ADSL hardware they had, which is a Micra Digital rebranded
    Belkin thingy, with a '-e' on the end of the product code.

    Quite cute and small and white :). Still think I'd have preferred the
    Draytek, though.

    Been playing with it, anyway; managed to get (some of) the firmware
    decompressed and the like, following in the footsteps of someone who's
    linky I've lost. Wishing there'd been a 7633 there, since ISTR that they
    run Linux?

    Cool undocumented features so far include an option to change serial
    number, MAC address, !board version! (http://router-ip/production.stm)
    and a load of other stuff I think would *not* be a good idea to play
    with. Also a "linegraph.class" file. Need to find the html file thast
    calls it, though. Also wireless_country.stm - which is probably useful
    for breaking the law (as well as getting a channel no-one else is using?
    Naughty! :D )

    Aaanyway, I was wondering if anyone knows what sort of processor it is
    (ARM?), and which OS it runs (what I think is the OS file, in the
    firmware, is called soho.bin)?

    I've done a desultory Google but not found much, and I don't really want
    to rip it open the first day I bought it.

    Also, it has an 802.1x (RADIUS) authentication mode, and I was wondering
    if there's any conceivable way to get it working, with the RADIUS server
    also being wireless? I think it's a bit of a tall order, but I can't
    move my server upstairs (where the router is), or the router downstairs
    (where the server is), so if I want to use it then I'll need to wangle
    it somehow...

    How about a screenshot for those of us who don't have one in front
    of us... might be a bit of use from a marketing angle :)
