Hi there

 

I need to set up a wireless repeater in a corner of our house. I have lying around an Orcon Netcomm NF4V that I got with our broadband but I can't find that any of the third party firmware options I know support it. I tried to flash with Gargoyle firmware as it generically supports Broadcom chipsets but I'm unable to, even after flashing to vanilla Netcomm firmware. When I query cpuinfo on the NF4V it tells me it's a Broadcom4350 v8.0.

 

Anybody done this or have an idea how I could do it?

 

Cheers

Why do you want a wireless repeater? Do you understand why they're such a bad idea?

 

I wouldn't expect to see any 3rd party firmware that can do such a thing. It's not the type of device that anybody would want to ever use as a repeater.

Pretty sure the Orcon supplied routers remain the property of orcon, too.
