GPL Source Code for the device

"8WRGND13.2A1G" (board ID = wrgnd13 [Alpha Networks WRG-ND13]) is silkscreened on the board of a production unit.

This device is similar to the Western Digital My Net N600 (w/ an Alpha board ID of wrgnd16).. but the N600 omits the GbE switch (for the in-SoC switch) and uses AR9382 (2x2) instead of AR9380.

The default SSID for both bands is WesternDigital.

Wi-Fi Certified (alt.) (as of 06/26/2012)

        BusyBox is a multi-call binary that combines many common Unix
        utilities into a single executable.  Most people will create a
        link to busybox for each function they wish to use and BusyBox
        will act like whatever it was invoked as!
