Transceiver from GL causes dropped characters; using Linksys transceiver

  • possibly solved by "tighter" transceiver construction

loading CFE

VxWorks will flash over itself with CFE - http://wiki.openwrt.org/OpenWrtDocs/Hardware/Linksys/WRT54G

Attempted to load micro openWRT kernel and CFE over VxWorks

  • upload failed - incompatible browser?
  • despite successful re-load of original firmware, bootloader refuses to find image on flash
  • possible solutions are loading fresh VxWorks from network or reloading flash through EJTAG port

loading XINU

Control-C interrupts VxWorks loader, as it does in CFE. VxWorks has an advantage over CFE in that it will remember bootloader settings for tftp host after powercycle. This removes the need for special xinu-console script to talk to CFE. Just run xinu-console, download compiled boot image, and powercycle. Settings for VxWorks bootloader:

  • boot device: vl0
  • host name: morbius
  • file name: {backend name}.boot
  • inet on ethernet: 192.168.6.{assigned by morbius}
  • host inet:
  • flags 0x88 --tftp and quickboot
