[News] NetGear Router Runs Linux

Hash: SHA1

3G router serves both wired and wireless users

,----[ Quote ]
| NetGear announced a Linux-based 3G mobile 
| router developed in collaboration with 
| Ericsson. The NetGear MBRN3300E 3G Mobile 
| Broadband Router combines an internal 3G 
| radio, an 802.11n WiFi access point, an 
| Ethernet swtich, and four Ethernet ports, 
| sharing 3G bandwidth over WiFi and Ethernet, 
| says the company.



Netgear responds to open source concerns for WNR3500L router

| âWith respect to the default firmware,
| we have used our best efforts to comply
| with and believe we have complied with
| the applicable GPL requirements,â he
| said. âNevertheless, we understand that
| the open source community generally
| takes exception when factory loaded
| firmware written in Linux that is placed
| on routers or other hardware includes
| binary only kernel.â


Netgear trying to fool their users with "Open Source Router"

,----[ Quote ]
| Two days ago, Netgear has announced the so-called "Open
| Source" WNR3500L router, together with an equally "Open
| Source" MyOpenRouter community.
| The problem with this Open Source router is: It ships with
| binary-only kernel modules. Not only is this extremely
| Closed Source, but it also
|     * has very practical security implications: You can
|     never update your Linux kernel to get the latest
|     security fixes, but have to run vulnerable old kernel
|     versions
|     * is a very questionable legal practise. Netgear as
|     the vendor is simply relying on the fact that none of
|     the authors who have written parts of the kernel
|     against which their binary-only module links will ever
|     make copyright claims against them


Netgear router not open source, says coder

,----[ Quote ]
| Networking company Netgear has been accused of breaking
| open-source licensing conditions, by shipping a Linux-
| based router without source code.
| The claims were made in a blog post on Wednesday by Harald
| Welte, Linux watchdog and developer.

Netgear betas open source NAS OS

,----[ Quote ]
| Netgear is about to launch APIs for the operating system kernel that runs on
| its ReadyNAS devices.
| "They run on a linux kernel anyway and now we're in beta release with APIs so
| the geeks can hack away at it," said Netgear CEO Patrick Lo. He swears by the
| company's open source stance generally, arguing that last week's moves by
| high-end networking heavyweights Cisco and Juniper in the direction of
| opening up their router OSes validate Netgear's strategy.


Linux-based NAS storage devices expand capacity

| Netgear has introduced five Linux-based networked attached storage (NAS)
| products.


Get yourself set up with screaming video

,----[ Quote ]
| At the heart of the EVA800 is the 200MHz Sigma Media processor which has
| multiple DSP cores and 128MB of DDR RAM. We're sure the OS behind it is a
| Linux flavour of sorts. You'll see why we've come to that astute conclusion
| later.
