OpenWrt + Squeezeslave + Multiple Routers

Questions about running Squeezeslave on OpenWrt pop up from time to time in various forae, so I figured I'd capture my latest experiments for public consumption. All of them involve the squeezeslave-oss_1.2-r365 package most appropriate for the router/OpenWrt combination in question. I built all Ope...

Re: alternatives to the WL-520gU

Here's another for the list: TP-Link TL-MR3020. http://www.tp-link.com/us/products/details/?model=TL-MR3020 I just got OpenWrt trunk (r33395, built myself) on my MR3020 as a base platform, with ALSA and the USB libraries. Loaded Squeezeslave as a package, downloaded from: http://squeezeslave.googlec...

Re: Squeezeslave on the WL-520GU

I swapped out the stock Broadcom 4321 radio that came on my WL-500W for the only Mini PCI wireless adapter currently available at Newegg, the TP-LINK TL-WN861N. This card has an Atheros AR922x chip which is fully supported by the ath9k driver available with the OpenWrt Backfire brcm47xx target (i.e....

Re: alternatives to the WL-520gU

In case anybody Googles the WL-500W and hits this thread, I was able to stream audio on mine using the latest Backfire brcm-2.4 target. I ended up building my own although you could probably use the openwrt.org binaries as well. You must load the "kmod-brcm-wl-mimo" driver to get wireless working on...

How to back-rev package MPD in OpenWrt?

Jeff, how did you go about building an older version of MPD for your project? I'd like to attempt the same memory-saving trick with a newer kernel.

Thanks!

Re: alternatives to the WL-520gU

There is a wireless driver issue with OpenWrt, but the 500W radio is a Mini PCIe card and can be changed I can successfully run Backfire brcm-2.4 target on my 500W and get wireless with the proprietary Broadcom wl driver. But the system doesn't enable my USB audio card, still tracking that problem ...

Re: Squeezeslave on the WL-520GU

I was wondering if anyone has tried a workaround of using shoutcast and the winamp DSP plugin to take the output from the softsqueeze player running on a PC and broadcast that as a stream to the asus - you would control it via the computer or smart phone. You can use your 520GU as a simple Squeezeb...

Re: alternatives to the WL-520gU

I took at look at (US) Newegg's current (December 2011) offerings and found US$14 WL-500W refurbs. This page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asus_routers claims the 500W has double the memory of our 520GU and perhaps a slightly faster processor. There is a wireless driver issue with OpenWrt, but the 50...

Re: Air light NOT coming on

@dblumenstetter, where did you get your Backfire image? The default openwrt.org builds load Broadcom firmware incompatible with the WL-520GU wireless interface. It will work if you build your own version of Backfire, configured to load the stable firmware. See the thread that gerben linked. Also, wh...
