Hi all,
I am new to this forum and probably the least experienced of the users here so bear with me please.


We would like to flash Robin onto our boards for testing, however I checked the firmware list and I don't think our boards will accept it but I'm not sure. We have Gateworks Cambria and Avila series boards that we use, they come with OpenWRT installed but I do not see the Gateworks series boards on the firmware list. As i am still learning the wireless world I am confused as to whether or not Robin will load on the gateworks boards and if so then which version of the firmware do I use. If anyone can help a complete noob with this stuff it would be greatly appreciated.

thank you in advance,
John H.

if the boards run Openwrt then Robin will work on them as well as on Soekris and Alix platforms. Obviously, other than one radio-miniPCI card, you need that Robin will be ported on Gateworks platforms...

Thank you for the reply iselman,
If you could bear with me for a few more questions I would greatly appreciate the help.

Is there a wiki for loading Robin onto the boards? I am new to loading and have only done this a few times using a JTAG for StarOS and serial for embedone. From your reply it is my understanding that I can load Robin onto the Gateworks boards that I have as they run OpenWRT, I do have some confusion when you mentioned the one-radio mini pci card that I need. The boards we have support 4 radios (we use Ubiquiti), we are looking to use 2 for backhaul and 2 for ap. Could you please explain this a little better for me?

Thank you again!!

John
