Hi All, been a while.
 just looking to see if there is a SECN 6 release for the MP2-AWD ?
i did try and flash the non AWD firmware, with limited success but rolled it back to 5. 
The MP is only being used as a wifi Router (eg Pri Radio as wifi Wan to another AP, and the Sec Radio as local wifi AP for clients)

Hi Glen

The two SECN 6 firmware versions for MP02 are located at :

The version previously labelled "MP02 AWD" was re-named "MP02 FXS" in the SEC6 build.
SECN 6 is largely a rebuild of previous source code without functional changes, with the exception that for the FXS version the Asterisk functionality was simplified (e.g with the removal of the IVR function), because the underlying Asterisk version had to be changed and these functions did not port across simply.
But the normal telephony functions are unchanged.

The "MP02" and "MP02 FXS" versions differ only in the addition of the telephony subsystem, so I am interested in your comment about having limited success with the "MP02" version.
Are you using the telephony functions?


You might also be interested in looking at the Digital Library firmware for the MP02.
This is based on a more current version of OpenWrt and provides the AP and WiFi WAN facilities you mentioned.
The DL firmware is simpler than SECN (it does not include mesh networking) and has an updated User Interface.

The primary purpose of the DL firmware is to share digital library content stored on USB, but the use of this facility is optional.

Terry

The Digital Library firmware is available for download here:


For the MP02 device, use the "MS14"  firmware.

Hi Terry.
Using the FXS flavour it boots up once, but as soon as i add any config to set the wireless/wan etc and reboot the wifi never comes back.
can only ssh into the device via the ethernet, http doesn't respond even though it's running, sometimes also doesn't boot at all.
Not using any of the voice or mesh features.
other thing i noticed on the webpage before applying any settings that it doesn't show the dual radio options as it does on ver5, also can't hear the 2nd radio ticking.
holding the hardware button to factory reset brings it back to defaults ok and allows me to reflash back to v5 via the gui.
will give the Digital Library one a go

Hi Glen

Apologies, my mistake. You have the dual radio outdoor device (now discontinued...)

Leave it with me and I'll sort out a SECN build for it over the next week or so.

The DL MS14 firmware should work, but you will only have the 2.4GHz radio.

You have reminded me that I have a batch of those devices that I need to refurbish, so I will have to get onto it.

Regards
Terry

Hi Glen

If you are interested in trying it out, attached is a first cut Digital Library firmware for your AWD device (aka MS14-Duo) that will give you access to both radios.

By default it runs a main and guest AP on both radios, but you can easily disable the ones you don't want.
The Guest AP provides access only to the local DL content, not upstream access to the WAN.
It supports WiFi WAN on the Primary 2.4GHz radio (but not yet on the Secondary 2.4/5GHz radio)

I have done some quick testing and the basics seem to be ok. I have not tested library content yet.

Default IP is 10.10.10.1  which will take you to the dummy Library home page.
To get to the config pages go to 10.10.10.1/admin
Login is "root / password"

Please let me know if you have a chance to test.

Regards
Terry
