D-Link DIR-835-A1 Cosmetic Issues

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: other Version: Trunk
Keywords: dir-835, dir-825-c1, d-link Cc:

Description

D-Link DIR-835 (rev A1) is essentially the same as DIR-825-C1 with the addition of 3T3R on AR9380 5 GHz band. DIR-825-C1 trunk images work just fine overall, but a few minor cosmetic changes needed to be perfect:

1. LED configuration is incorrect:
-DIR-835 only has 3 LEDs - power, WAN (planet), and WPS LED (semi-hidden) compared to DIR-825-C1 which also includes WLANx2, switch, and USB LEDs. These LEDs are also different colors on DIR-825-C1. Power & WAN have separate orange & green LEDs.

As currently labeled in r35401 & r35608:
--DIR825C1_GPIO_LED_BLUE_POWER (GPIO 14) = orange power LED
--DIR825C1_GPIO_LED_BLUE_PLANET (GPIO 18) = green WAN (planet) LED
--DIR825C1_GPIO_LED_ORANGE_PLANET (GPIO 19) = orange WAN (planet) LED
--DIR825C1_GPIO_LED_ORANGE_POWER (GPIO 15) = actual blue WPS LED (semi-hidden)

Could not find green power LED.
WPS LED blinks during boot up.
Did not test buttons, but they appear to be the same on the PCB. LEDs are in a physically different location (except WPS).

See: https://dev.openwrt.org/browser/trunk/target/linux/ar71xx/files/arch/mips/ath79/mach-dir-825-c1.c?rev=35401

2. System info labels router as DIR-825-C1
No surprise here, but obviously a minor issue.

Thanks to all for the great work on OpenWrt!

Thought to add the 835 after all things are right.
Like leds, which aren't perfect on both ;-).
Thanks for the actual description of the leds. I will correct this.
Have no model to try, so I'll have to wait until someone can test where the green power led is.

Haven't tested if it works, but propably you can do what is described in:
https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=36561

so i.e.:

cd /sys/class/gpio
echo 12 > export
cat gpio12/value > /tmp/revert
echo 1 > gpio12/value
sleep 8
cat /tmp/revert > gpio12/value
echo 12 > unexport

12 could be a good guess, else i would try 10 or smaller.

Thanks for the tip. I tried this, but get "ash: write error: Operation not permitted" when I try to change the value of 10 & 12 (export works ok). Did not keep trying after that. I'm logged in as root via ssh. I am able to export and read back the values stored FWIW.

Don't know if the gpio utility of the old days will do it.
But I can send you an image with gpio 12, 10, 13 and 11 (usb) as alternative?
Propably you will find green power there.. .
Just would need an address.

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by anonymous

How can i get you an address without posting my email publicly? Would you consider uploading it to dropbox, box.net, google drive, or some other file sharing service?

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by Halo2

Guess what would have happened if I had suggested to use a mailing list ;-).
But propably you'll just look up who created the patch.. .

comment:7 Changed 5 years ago by anonymous

I have seen the mailing list in fact! And I did see who created the patch! :) If you want me to sign up for the mailing list, I can.

comment:8 Changed 5 years ago by Halo2

Just send a mail! (Not to the list, but to the creator.)
Then we have your address.

comment:9 Changed 5 years ago by anonymous

I'm signed up, but I think I sent an email to the whole list, so apologies for the spam! Let me know if that works.

comment:10 Changed 5 years ago by Halo2

Don't see something related.
