Installing Setup on WRT160NL router

These instructions are for configuring the router in wireless client mode on an infrastructure network. In this case, the configure files are for CMU's wireless network, but changing that should be relatively simple. In order to load the full firmware image you need to first load a small backfire image and then a second larger one.

  • Flash with standard OpenWRT image backfire.bin using the default Linksys web upgrade
  • Goto Backup/flash menu
    • Disable keep settings
  • Flash with [[ff_image.bin| raw ff_image.bin] using the openwrt web upgrade
    • Wait for reboot
  • Set password
  • Goto network->wifi
    • Click on "scan button"
    • Join CMU
    • submit, save and apply
  • Goto Luci interface page
  • scp etc-ff-image.tar :/tmp/
