Perl 5.30 is broken on kirkwood so the firewall will not work anymore.
since fireinfo reports less than 10 installations we will drop the support.

Iomega iConnect Wireless Data Station

This box is a cheap (in germany) kirkwood based server which can used as hardware for IPFire. But you need to add a serial console. You need a experimental Image with kernel or higher.

Technical data

  • CPU: Marvell Feroceon 1.0 GHz ARMv5te
  • RAM: 256MB 16bit DDR2 @666
  • 1x GigaBit LAN
  • 1x Ralink RT3090 PCIe Wlan
  • 4x USB 2.0 HiSpeed


The iConnect has u-boot as bootloader but this version doesn't support the editenv command. Here is a configuration boot from the first usb port.

setenv x_bootcmd_usb usb start
setenv x_bootargs console=ttyS0,115200
setenv 0_bootargs_root root=/dev/sda3 rootdelay=10
setenv 0_bootcmd_initrd fatload usb 0 0x6700000 uInit-ipfire-kirkwood
setenv 0_bootcmd_kernel fatload usb 0 0x6400000 uImage-ipfire-kirkwood
setenv x_booti bootm 0x6400000 0x6700000
setenv bootcmd \${x_bootcmd_usb}\; \${0_bootcmd_initrd}\; \${0_bootcmd_kernel}\; setenv bootargs \${x_bootargs} \${0_bootargs_root}\; \${x_booti}\;
setenv mainlineLinux yes
setenv arcNumber 2870

Copy the file to the clipboard, connect to the uart (i have used PuTTY) and send it. (right-mouseclick). Then type:

to store it to the u-boot flashchip.
