I’ve created some useful (my opinion) packages for OpenWrt – Atheros platform. They were not applied to the trunk, I don’t know why but you may download them here:
- Atheros GPIO LED driver – a kernel module which will create the /proc/gpio devices. Useful to control the WLAN LED.
- Atheros toggler – use the reset button to enable/disable WLAN.
You can download both packages HERE. Buildfiles and patch files are both included. Those files works fine for kernel v2.6.23.x, there might be a general GPIO tool in kernel v2.6.24.x but until then you may use those modules.
Hint: Buy a wireless router for Openwrt:
