More fun around MIPS

Posted 01-29-2011 at 10:54 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I thought I finally have to try this myself at last, so I logged in to my Netgear router and started experiments around MIPS assembly.

It isn't much, though, I think I love this architecture It's really easy comparing to x86.

I guess I started at the wrong place. My first step was googling for "MIPS linux syscall", I was trying to find some easy sample code in order to understand how it works and create "hello world" myself. But MIPS is so easy,...

My experience with NetGear WNR3500L

Posted 11-08-2010 at 12:43 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Today I've finally make it to reflashing, I was quite busy these days. So, armed with manuals over the net I started the process by uploading .chk of dd-wrt, in order to then upload .bin (renamed .trx) of tomato-usb.
My first mistake was when I uploaded dd-wrt. Actually, that was sorta minimal build, not so fresh also, I am not exactly sure what went wrong but I started to tweak it instead of moving right ahead with uploading tomatousb. When I applied some settings and rebooted it no longer...

fun around MIPS: qemu-system-mips

Posted 11-06-2010 at 11:33 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])
Tags arm, mips, nginx, qemu

Yesterday I was surprised when discovered that,... ehm, well... I'm such a newbie in this... that most routers using MIPS not ARM CPU as I thought before
Since that, I've also tried to look at MIPS in QEMU. There is even less information about this, though debian to help I was surprised I've missed it last time when doing experiments with qemu-system-arm, but now it's very helpful with qemu-system-mips.
I used aurel32's page as a start point: http://people.debian.org/~aurel32/qemu/mips/...

Home router upgrade #2 - NetGear WNR3500L

Posted 11-05-2010 at 09:33 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Yesterday I bought this cute tiny box for my home net. My previous routers were 2 PCs, first one I used since aug 2009 was P1 200mhz, 64mb ram, recent one is old celeron 2.4 ghz, 1g ram which is much more unstable than P1
These ones were using way too much power and make an excessive levels of noise, so I finally decided to trash this stuff and get myself a small box

Initially I was looking for a cheapest router supporting wifi(I have a laptop and I'm already sick of...
