    Hi Shree The SECN5 firmware is based on LEDE / OpenWrtDD which is why you can't install the package from BB or CC. The SECN5 firmware is also seriously incomplete due to compatibility issues with LEDE/OpenWrt DD. I suggest that you use the SECN4 firmware for the AWD from here: http://downlo
  • Poor Service August 14, 2017

    For those interested in adding sensors (such as temperature, humidity, pressure, voltage, current) and controllers to MP02 and similar devices, there are two new VT Wiki pages describing the use of I2C and 1-Wire serial busses on MP02:
  • Internal Meshbed using MP AWD - disabling MIMO April 3, 2017
    Hello, I've been trying to setup an internal testbed using the new MP-AWD devices in a very constricted space. I am using self-built Faraday cages to cancel the interference. The cage is basically wire mesh with hole spacing of less than 3mm, wrapped around the MP-AWD boxes. In order to further

  • Solar Power = Battery March 15, 2017
    Hi Guys I've read the existing threads on power/solar but I'm afraid its clear as mud. (My fault) I understand that 5v or smaller than 12v which is smaller than 240v but when it comes to amps and watts, I go all blond. Consider 1 x AR150 which requires 5v at around .75 of an amp. My lithium
  • Progress with the WR842 1.3 version March 7, 2017
    Hi All If you view my other posts you will see that I have successfully flashed MR3020 and, because of memory limitations, have them working as SECN mesh network only. I am extremely impressed with them as they have eradicated null spots in the house. And I have since re-flashed them with
