# so after chaning to to openwrt directery, we can call our favorite config

piggyback kalua on a new router model without building from scratch

# for new devices, which are flashed with a plain openwrt
# from http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ do this:

# plugin ethernet on WAN, to get IP via DHCP, wait
# some seconds, connect via LAN with 'telnet 192.168.1.1' and
# look with which IP was given on WAN, then do:
ifconfig $(uci get network.wan.ifname) | fgrep "inet addr:"
/etc/init.d/firewall stop
/etc/init.d/firewall disable
exit

# plugin ethernet on WAN and connect to the router
# via 'telnet <routers_wan_ip>', then do:
opkg update
opkg install ip bmon netperf
