OpenWRT advice / help please

Postby donkey42 » Wed Aug 22, 2012 2:01 pm

hi guys i've being using Linux for a while now and i reckon it's time to get serious, for a while i've being looking at OpenWRT for my brcm4718 based WNR3500L, but i'm finding it hard to start as i'm unaware what i'm doing, i have had a few firmwares on it and Chillifire is on it now, now Chillifire is all well and good and it is OpenWRT with a pink fluffy GUI.

i have being trying to build my own starting from SVN, i have the OpenWRT Buildroot .pdf

now is this a good starting point ?

BTW: any and all help / advice will be gratefully received

thank you very much for reading this

If you got the pdf from the Open WRT website, then yes it is a good start!

Most usual config can be done in the 'pink fluffy GUI', and those that can't are usually very simple, just ssh in and boom.

I have found the openWrt website to be very good, answering any potential questions I have, and if I can't find the answer on the website someone else has usually asked the same question in the forums!
For certain you have to be lost to find the places that can't be found. Elseways, everyone would know where it was
