 -----------------------------------------------------

This is a small repo for my OpenWrt patches.

I have been using openwrt on various routers since the Linksys WRT54GS (White Russian 2006)

Current Routers

Netgear WNR2200

  • usb power patch
  • ath9k init script

usb patch: fixes usb to allow use of usb devices (used for storage)

ath9k init script: init usb modules before attempting root mount, allowing the use of overlay or root pivot (extroot)

More info on extroot can be found on the openwrt wiki:

http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/extroot/extroot.theory

not working:

  • buttons (wifi + wps) who really uses those?

Example setup of USB /layout pivot on a 8GB USB 2.0 flash drive

 /dev/sda1     1.3GB   EXT4    /overlay
 /dev/sda2     524MB   SWAP
 /dev/sda3     5.4GB   EXT4    /data

TP-LINK TP-WR841ND

Will possibly upload patches relating to this router in future.

For now here is my diagram for USB mod + serial connection. from 2011
