Flashing DD-WRT on La Fonera

Flashing a stock La Fonera

Follow the guide about La Fonera Flashing

Upgrading from older DD-WRT build

(this is for versions older than 2006 - 0117, later versions support flashing through the web interface)

Either follow the standard flash routine for flashing via Redboot, or use SSH, telnet or serial console to the Fonera and issue the commands below. (This might also work if you do it under the Commands section on the webinterface)

cd /tmp
wget <newest version of root.fs>
wget <newest version of vmlinux.bin.l7>
mtd write vmlinux.bin.l7 vmlinux.bin.l7
mtd write root.fs rootfs

Building DD-WRT for the La Fonera from Source

Downloading the sources via SVN

svn co svn:// DD-WRT will download the complete source-files in a directory called DD-WRT.

Please note that this is a very large download, so be prepared that it might take a while.


the makefile you need for this task is src/router/Makefile.ar531x which simply can be called by make -f Makefile.ar531x all the sources should be within the svn, but i was not able yet to check if everything is compileable. if a third party is able to test this i will give him advices if he has troubles. (the last time this worked good together with "Tornado")


ToDo List for the Fonera DD-WRT Firmware

(feel free to add some items)


  • Fix WPA encryption not working on WDS link (AP mode with WDS setup via WDS tab of wireless settings)
  • Fix WDS not working in WDS AP mode (also no SSID)
  • Restore the firmware-configuration data (backup works) - BS: in progress
  • Fix Lan/Wan Wlan bridge, "assigning WAN Port to Switch" not working - BS: this option must be removed, see above
  • Fix apply.cgi of Webif, when change Lan setting or Internet setting it crashes sometimes...
  • SD/MMC kernel module for Fonera SD-Card hack - (SD/MMC Driver)
  • jffs2 on La Fonera
  • X-Link Kai Support
  • FTP/SMB(/HTTP)-Tab in the Web-Interface
  • Enable WLAN LED work (maybe using FON's source code)
  • Enable the creation of FAKE Virtual Interfaces to confuse lamer near house ;)
  • Wireless Bridge mode (wired PC in the same subnet). Or someone to fill the "howto".
  • Flashing via Webinterface doesn´t really work. Flashing seems to be successful, but displays the old firmware on the status page


  • WPA-PSK and TKIP (didn`t work with Windows XP)
  • Backup the firmware-configuration data
  • WDS Repeating
  • Reset button
  • Web flashing & upgrading (from this version to future)
  • Virtual interface if deleted from webconfig is NOT taken down and removed
  • Fix creation and erasing of Virtual Interfaces
  • pppoe (message that it is no mips binary)
  • Fix wireless security, mac addresses for filtering turn into zeros in table

  • Activate encryption for Virtual Interfaces - BS: always worked, see security page tab
  • Fix Lan/Wan interface, when connected wired Fonera is inaccessible - BS: just disable internet connection setup and lan will be assigned to the bridge


  • Can someone compile a version with DD-WRTs VoIP support SIP Express Router SER?
  • Sniffer (as Kismet) or Scanner (as Wi-viz) on Fonera Client Mode Kismet HTML Client Beta or Wi-viz Wiki Page
  • Enable SIP Express Router or support (OpenWrt edition), so each Fonera can switch SIP phone calls.


(Please put all your HowTo's here!)
