modBMW WIFI ENET contains fully functional router with DHCP server inside and the version of its firmware is something that every customer may wants to know.
Here we will describe all changes and versions we have ever used:
- 15.Dec.2019 – we released our first modBMW WIFI ENET adapter. It uses OpenWRT 15.05. Processor: Ralink RA5350F; RAM: 32MB; Flash memory: 8MB
- 20.Mar.2020 – we updated our PCB board and some of the OpenWRT settings to fix some issues with iOS devices connectivity. It uses OpenWRT 15.05 Chaos Calmer.
- 29.Apr.2020 – we replaced the OpenWRT firmware with the one from Qualcomm. It has quite better WIFI driver which allows better connection with phones equipped with poor wifi antenna (like the most modern Android phones, like Samsung, Huawei and many others).
