About This Project

OpenWrt is a highly extensible GNU/Linux distribution for embedded devices. Unlike many other distributions for these routers, OpenWrt is built from the ground up to be a full-featured, easily modifiable operating system for your router. In practice, this means that you can have all the features you need with none of the bloat, powered by a Linux kernel that's more recent than most other distributions.

Latest Release

Attitude Adjustment

The 12.09 "Attitude Adjustment" version has been released on 25 April 2013 - it marks the current stable version of OpenWrt. It is based on r36088.

The general method for picking the right image is visiting the Table of Hardware, then matching the "Platform & Frequency" of your device with the image you're downloading. Sometimes, the "Status" column will have additional information for your device, such as building its image or device-specific installation instructions.

If there isn't a pre-built image for your device, follow the Building OpenWrt instructions to build a custom image.

Any bugs in the firmware should be reported via the ticket system. Before reporting a new bug please first search for similar bugs.

Barrier Breaker

A RC1 of Barrier Breaker was released on July, 14th 2014. see http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/barrier.breaker

As with the Trunk images (below), pre-release Barrier Breaker builds do not come with any web interface or GUI. You will need to be comfortable using a command line and remote shell to install one yourself: LuCI Essentials
