Decided to toy with OpenWRT kamikaze on the FON. Noticed that there is x-wrt for for it! So swapped out my dd-wrt on FON and put in the latest build of OpenWRT kamikaze!
First thing to do after placing the OpenWRT in? SSH back into the device and start editing the necessary configuration files.
root@OpenWrt: ~# vi /etc/config/firewall
add in the following 2 entries at the end of the file
Then edit the configuration file for network setting
root@OpenWrt: ~# vi /etc/config/network
mine looks like this
# Copyright (C) 2006 OpenWrt.org
config interface loopback
option ifname lo
option proto static
option ipaddr 127.0.0.1
option netmask 255.0.0.0
config interface lan
option type bridge
option ifname eth0
option proto dhcp
option hostname Fonera
save the file and then reboot the device!
This time hook it up to your main router so that it connects with the internet.
Now SSH into the router after it has rebooted (through the dhcp-ed address) and then issue the command
root@OpenWrt: ~# ipkg install http://downloads.x-wrt.org/xwrt/kamikaze/atheros-2.6/webif_latest.ipk
On the next reboot, you will have webif! Have fun with OpenWRT on FON.
Regularly check out if there are newer builds of x-wrt. You can force install it by
root@OpenWrt: ~# ipkg install http://downloads.x-wrt.org/xwrt/kamikaze/atheros-2.6/webif_latest.ipk -force-reinstall
