I have two of these ($50 closeout locally) took one apart

Inside:
has rectifier chip, so dual/auto polarity, will test soon and update
has amp chips for both wavelengths separately

bottom cover is pre-punched for LAN and separate 2.4/5 antenna holes respectively

comes apart easily, six screws, rubber gasket

flashing using gargoyles fon-flash and winpcap via win 7 64.

will update on how it goes.

fis init

bricked it, restored to factory, tftp redbooted the 2690 via two guides, manually updated to 2693.

iwlist txpower lists 100mw, I figure 600mw after the amp, which iw will not list.

will flash back to stock, run tests, reflash and compare as I have time.

Here's a guide for flashing, I combined/gleamed between two diffrent ones to get this working, it appears that the registers/locations are different on the 5610, so the open-mesh utility, AP52, and fon flash wont quite do it.

Main setup was gleamed

and all the correct info for getting ROBIN in place was

.
The first guide I linked to is also an excellent restore guide, and has files as well.


here is the initial setup:
- configure your network card with ip 192.168.1.11 , netmask 255.255.255.0
- create a directory , c:\engenius
- create an empty file with notepad in that directory called redboot.bat and fill it with these commands:
Code:
rem echo off
:start
rem ------------------------------------------------
ping 192.168.1.1 -n 1 -w 1 >NUL
IF ERRORLEVEL 1 goto start
rem putty
rem ------------------------------------------------
break
putty.exe telnet://192.168.1.1:9000 -m redboot.txt
exit

- after you saved that file, create another one named redboot.txt and fill it with this text:
Code:
^C

-both the bat and the txt should be in c:\engenius as well

requisite files:
-

, place in c:/engenius
-The latest release files both the root and lzma:

-both of those should be in c:\engenius as well
- install

and configure it to listen to 192.168.1.11 interface, and to serve files from C:\engenius


Now getting into redboot:
- start the redboot.bat file. You will see a cmd window, with text scrolling fast.
- connect the cable to your network card, and power up the device.
- after a few seconds, a new window will pop-up, that's putty connected to your device. You will see a prompt
Code:
RedBoot>

At this point, you have successfully conected to your device. Please don't play with cables, power, etc. You may brick for good your device.

At the prompts enter what is listed.
Along the way it will have a y/n prompt a few times, answer yes to each
next up is each of the commands you can cut/paste, in putty right click will paste.
Be sure to wait for the
Code:
RedBoot>
prompt between each command.

Code:

RedBoot> ip_address -l 192.168.1.1 -h 192.168.1.11

load -r -b %{FREEMEMLO} openwrt-atheros-vmlinux.lzma

load -r -b %{FREEMEMLO} openwrt-atheros-root.squashfs

fis init

load -r -b %{FREEMEMLO} openwrt-atheros-vmlinux.lzma

fis create -r 0x80041000 -e 0x80041000 vmlinux.bin.l7

load -r -b %{FREEMEMLO} openwrt-atheros-root.squashfs

fis create -l 0x700000 rootfs

fis load -l vmlinux.bin.l7

exec


let the unit sit until you see the WLAN LED start up then your all set, and should be available to connect to.

I need the engenius provided .img for flashing made into root/lmza files that will work with this too now as well.

I'm a week from putting these into use, until then, I will tear down/test/take pics of what the community here asks for.

I really think these units are better served as a backhaul to mesh gear, using stock firmware. this way more bandwidth overhead can be delivered to a node.

I use NS-5M's for back-haul to benefit of the secondary POE switch port in them.. Can daisy-chain two NS 5M together for the back-haul bridge and still hang a gateway off of one.. Solves the problem since the EOC2610/11's seem to accommodate auto-polarity with a 24vdc supply just fine and i use a 24vdc/1amp (24watt) supply to maintain adequate power budget.

May be an excellent option for 5GHZ MESH deployment though...

Has anyone noticed a difference between the engenius firmware and the robin firmware in terms of reception and distance. We flashed the 5610 with the latest robin firmware and at first we couldn't get the right transmit power because the country code was set to japan so it was at 20db max instead of 26. Even when we got that changed it didn't actually have that big of an effect on the distance we where able to get out of the unit. Today we flashed it back to the stock firmware and it got about three times the amount of distance out of it.

Seeing the same results on 1650/2610/2611's.. have both stock and robin both doing a 3KM shot, get -78 on robin, -64 on stock firmwares.. tried different channels etc.. Though it was just me!..

If the devs need a 5610 we would be willing to see if we could get them one.

Just an update, as there's no where else for this.

Cloudtrrax r444 NG Working so far, flashed via this method:
-Use Bat from above to use putty and fis init the nvram
-use the custom build fon-flash to flash the files.
