GL-Inet vs TP WR-703

GL-Inet.com creates nice clones of TP-Link WR-703 routers. They run OpenWRT out of the box, and have 2 ethernet interfaces, a 2.4Ghz Wifi (802.11n) radio, a usb2.0 port and 5 free GPIO ports. Available on dealextreme/alibaba or in the RevSpace vending machine.

RevSpace images and packages

Alternative packages and install-images for OpenWrt (trunk) for GL-Connect GL-iNet v1 (GL-iNet-6416A) devices, Build-environment for the GL-Inet, http://glinet.sigio.nl/. You will need the openwrt-ar71xx-generic-gl-inet-v1-squashfs-factory.bin file, md5sum ad2164a70e4ccc9a40f77bf49d3bb472

Note that using a custom build means you can't use the normal repositories for kernel-packages.

OpenWRT

The device runs OpenWRT out of the box, but it's quite easy to build your own image.


Serial settings

  • Baudrate: 115200
  • Handshake: none
  • Flow-control: none

Hacks

External antenna

Maxell's shopping list for the external antenna modification.

  • IPX naar RP-SMA pigtail, RG178: [1]
  • Surface mount IPX: [2]

Display

Widely sold as the "Nokia5110 display" (but actually most famous for being the display of the Nokia 3310), this 84 × 48 graphical display can easily be added to a GL-Inet and controlled by bitbanging SPI with the GPIO pins. It uses 4 GPIOs, leaving one vacant, if you simply tie CE/SCE to GND.

Note: some of these PCBs come with a current limiting resistor of 150 Ω for the background LEDs, while others don't. Add your own resistor if your board didn't come with a resistor, or the LEDs will wear out very quickly.
