PLEASE HELP:
- - I expect mkPirateBox v0.2+ to run on many or even most untested router
- models. If something goes wrong, installation will most likely fail
- during wireless setup. I usually can make it easily work if you help me
- out. If you decide to try mkPirateBox on an untested router model,
- please send send me feedback on how it went, including
- - your router model
- - output of the command
- "cat /etc/openwrt_release /etc/config/wireless /etc/config/network".
- - Thanks! :)

REQUIREMENTS:
- - Decently powerful router with USB2.0 port which is supported by OpenWRT.
- Minimum requirements are 125 MHz, 16 MByte RAM and 4 GByte flash, but I
- recommend 250 MHz, 32 MByte RAM and 8 MByte flash. The following models
- meet or exceed the recommendation and should work out of the box:
- - TD-Link TL-WR1043ND (ar71xx, cheap!)
- - Asus WL-500gP (brcm47xx, white, discontinued)
- - Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH (ar71xx, hardwired antennas)
- - D-Link DIR-825 (ar71xx, white, fast!)
- - Linksys WRT160NL (ar71xx)
- - 125 MHz systems work, but HTTP uploads may drop dramatically to
- about 100 KByte/s.
- - An external USB hard drive (UMS compatible) formattet with FAT32.
- Keep in mind that some routers are unable to provide sufficient
- USB power to spin-up HD drives, while USB flash drives should work
- fine in any case.
- - Two ethernet cables
