PCB Pinout

RTC Setting

You can use a RTC (Real-time control) module in GL-AR150 mini router.

Install kernel modules

If you use our stock firmware, you can just install using opkg

opkg update
opkg install kmod-i2c-gpio-custom
opkg install kmod-rtc-sd2068

If you want to compile your own firmware, choose these packages:

Kernel modules  --->  I2C support  --->  kmod-i2c-gpio-custom
Kernel modules  --->  Other modules  --->  kmod-rtc-sd2068


The GPIO used for RTC is below:

SDA <--> GPIO1 SCL <--> GPIO17

Now you need in insert kernel modules and connect to the module

insmod i2c-gpio-custom.ko bus0=0,1,17
echo sd2068 0x32 > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/i2c-0/new_device

To read the time from RTC module

hwclock -r

To sync the RTC module's time to mini router

hwclock -s

To write mini router's time to RTC module

hwclock -w

PoE Connection

We have a specific PoE module for GL-AR150 mini routers. You can find it in the PoE version of AR150 router.

You can only apply one power supply method at one time, either via PoE (Power over Ethernet) or micro USB Power. The compatible passive or active PoE injector should be 48V 802.3af/at.

PoE only works on the WAN Port only

AR150 PoE Connection

PoE Setup Sample:

The following PoE injector is widely availabe in the market and it is very affordable. You can put you Ineternet cable in the Data In port then connect the Data & Power Out port to AR150-PoE's WAN port.

For PoE Version Only
