Checking the different versions of OpenWrt I realized there’s a testing version updated regularly. Due to I installed Kamikaze on my TP-Link TL-WR841N v7.1, and this is a older version than the current Backfire, I decide to try it because there’s a binary compiled for my router (v7.1)
In order to upgrade to testing Attitude Adjustment you must do the following:
- Download testing image for router TL-WR841 v7.1.
- Go to System > Flash Firmware and upload the image.
- It will show MD5 hash to check the integrity of the image to flash.
- Once checked, proceed to flash the image.
There’s not web interface
After applying the image I tried to reach the web interface without success, but I could log in via ssh. From there I checked this image doesn’t come with web interface by default, so you have to install it by typing:
opkg update opkg install luci /etc/init.d/uhttpd restart
The web interface is the same one, and I haven’t noticed big changes. But I realized there are USB modules enabled. This can be of interest if you want to use the USB port as some people comment on the dd-wrt forum.
Here I leave a couple of screenshot of waht you can monitor from the web interface:
