Need help with Fon 2201


Recommended Posts

Hey I just got a new Fonera 2201 and have been trying to enable ssh on it but have run into some problems. I've been following these directions but cannot seem to get to TFTP the new image over redboot. I can get into redboot fine and can ping my laptop with TFTPD.exe running but the image does not seem to come down into the Fonera. Any ideas?

See my output below

RedBoot> ping -l 192.168.1.1 -h 192.168.1.254

** Error: invalid number '192.168.1.1' for <length> - size of payload

PING - Invalid option specified

RedBoot> ping -h 192.168.1.254

Network PING - from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254

PING - received 10 of 10 expected

RedBoot> fis list

RedBoot 0xA8000000 0xA8000000 0x00030000 0x00000000

FIS directory 0xA87E0000 0xA87E0000 0x0000F000 0x00000000

RedBoot config 0xA87EF000 0xA87EF000 0x00001000 0x00000000

RedBoot> x -b 0xa8250000 -l 32

RedBoot> load -r -b 0x80100000 image.bin

Using default protocol (TFTP)

I tried that but to no avail. Although it looks like i'm having some success with Chris Oliver's method on his blog @ http://excid3.betaserver.org/projects/open...n-the-fon-plus/

I just got the gargoyle firmware on there, although i cant get wifi to power up. I'll keep hacking away at it and let you know how it goes.

I think it would be really useful if someone made a stick for the Fonera 2201 users to Chris' blog as i googled like crazy and tried a few different methods before i found this.

On the laptop try to recover the file image.bin using a tftp client. Can you download it?

I have only ever tried to TFTP DD-WRT over, no reason to go the hard way when you can just use Freifunk to flash it right?

As for getting wifi up, I just used the Gargoyle interface to get it setup although you should be able to use UCI to set it as well.

If you visit the Jasager interface and it finds the wifi isn't up it will bring it up in AP mode for you.

If you couldn't tftp the file on your local machine that means that your tftp server wasn't serving the file. As you've got past that stage it is a bit late now but check your directories and make sure the correct files are where they should be.

Quick solution: try using Tftpd32 for Telnet file retrieval

I encountered this same problem.

After late-night puzzling, I thought I had double-checked everything: including HTTP server, ping verification (both ways) and disabling Firewall... a simple solution was found:

I had been using HFS HTTP File Server, which worked fine during SSH file retrieval - but did not work for retrieval via Telnet.

Starting up Tftpd32 worked sweetly first time.

Good luck my friends, Lxs
