I previously noted the Hitachi/Tecom AH4021 ADSL
WiFi router apparently ran Linux and netfilter.
this seems Ok: one of the paper docs which came
with the unit is GPL v2, and also lists URLs for
the source (and GPL). the quibble is the source
URLs are for kernel.org and netfilter.org (i.e.,
baseline source and not necessarily the specific
source for what the box is running?).
amusingly, the unit is running a more up-to-date
Linux than my PC is! as supplied, it's running:
# cat proc/version
Linux version 184.108.40.206 (root at hp) (gcc version 3.4.2) #1 Fri May 26 09:11:32 CST 2006
whilst I'm still on 2.6.4 or so! ;-\
it's trivial to get a (root!) shell on the box.
listing files is a pain (no `ls', so `echo *').
does anyone happen to recognise the CPU?:
# cat proc/cpuinfo
system type : 96348GW
processor : 0
cpu model : BCM6348 V0.7
BogoMIPS : 253.44
wait instruction : no
microsecond timers : yes
tlb_entries : 32
extra interrupt vector : yes
hardware watchpoint : no
VCED exceptions : not available
VCEI exceptions : not available
anyways, the ADSL is supposedly now activated
on the line, so now it's time to see if I can
get that to work ... oh joys, oh bletches! ;-\
