      Sky Wireless Booster Internal Photos

      Not sure if anyone has done this previously but I've taken some internal photos.

      Bit of a pain to open. Even more of a pain to get the board out.

      Looks to be an Airties Air4400.

      Your'e probably correct.
      Tried to find an english version of firmware for the Air4400 but could only find Turkish.
      There are enough differences with that and the Sky branded box to prevent flashing with the Airties firmware.

      I also tried running AirTies Network Assistant and that didn't recognise it as an AirTies product either.

      I'm not about to dismantle the booster but I did enable kernel logging and saved the boot log.

      From that you can extract that device uses a BCM53572 rev 1 Broadcom CPU with 32 MB of memory.
      There are also details of Ethernet and wi-fi controllers.

      Unhappy Re: Sky Wireless Booster Internal Photos

      [QUOTE=ant_thomas;427873]Not sure if anyone has done this previously but I've taken some internal photos.

      Bit of a pain to open. Even more of a pain to get the board out.

      Looks to be an Airties Air4400.
