    Hi all,

    The WL-700gE has a RTC? I have to update my HowTo.
    Can anybody tell me if the new driver will work with an older oleg firmware?
    I am not able to test it atm.

    Unlikely, it use new features.

    Finally, this driver would be available in the firmware. The name was changed to gpiortc to honor existing rtc.c.

    Anyway, clock synchronization will now be done automagically during the boot. RTC would be synced back at shutdown/reboot. No need in scripts, etc.

    andi, thank you for your work.

    I shouldn't have called this simply rtc.c at all, as the name wrongly implies some generic rtc stuff. I'd recommend rtc-rv5c386a.c which fits the current naming scheme of rtc drivers in the linux kernel.

    It appears this driver hasn't made it upstream yet. Is it available somewhere other than in Oleg's own sources? E.g. is it available for OpenWRT somewhere?

    The OpenWRT wiki page for the WL-HDD still exists. The code there is for WhiteRussian. There's also some source code for Kamikaze, see ticket #1873.

    Note that it only supports the WL-HDD, not the WL-700gE as Oleg's software does.

    Thank you. I've adapted the package for Kamikaze so it now runs on my WL-700gE with 2.6.25.20 (and even automatically adapts to either one of wl-hdd and wl-700ge).

    Code:

    Hi there,

    I'm also trying to get a solution to have a Real Time Clock on my WL500g, which does not have the required hardware unfortunately. However, I have a Dreambox (linux based satellite receiver), which has an RTC built in itself. I was thinking if it's possible, that my WL500g router connects to the dreambox and reads the time out from it.

    I use my WL500g in client mode and I would like to set up a timeframe for "uptime" and "downtime"

    Thanks for the help in advance!

    I don't think this would enter the scope of what is usually considered "RTC".
    You can use any kind of network-time tool, like NTP, rdate, ...

    Hi,

    This is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks a lot!

    For the ones who are seeking for a similar solution, heres a little help from openwrt:
