DIR-300 and Wireless in Kamikaze 7.09

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Kamikaze 7.09
Component: kernel Version:
Keywords: Cc: pmaster@…


I have D-Link DIR-300 which is based on AR2317 chipset.

I tried to flash it with OpenWrt 7.09, it works good but wireless doesn't work.
I found that madwifi doesn't support ar2317.

But I've installed DD-WRT v24 RC 4 from

And wireless works! I know that DD-Wrt has similar design as in
OpenWrt. And i wonder why Wireless doesn't work in Openwrt.

dmesg of dd-wrt is attached, part of dmesg of Openwrt is in attach too.

Some data from DD-Wrt:

/ # uname -a
Linux DD-WRT #70 Thu Sep 6 15:38:04 CEST 2007 mips unknown

I have exactly the same problem. Should I modify something in the madwifi driver before compiling?

comment:2 Changed 10 years ago by ggp81

Well I think this is a problem related to the Madwifi HAL, which at now doesn't support AR2317 at all. As you probably know HAL is in a binary format, so it cannot be modified.
Maybe other things can be done, it depends also on the licence of the original product.
The new Meraki Outdoor has this problem too.

But why the wireless works in DD-Wrt? They have the same drivers.

Can you please write how to flash the DIR-300 ? I have the same router but I didn't find the wifi page for it.
