As you can see here development, there are always two branches which are being actively worked on. OpenWrt trunk, which is bleeding edge, codename 'Attitude Adjustment', and the current stable release. Do
cat /etc/bannerto see the exact revision. Use that information for bug reports and questions in the forum. Also use it, to look up information yourself: https://dev.openwrt.org/browser
Install one, e.g. LuCI.
There are three WebUIs available. All are FOSS, thus you can adapt each of them to your specific needs and likings.
By removing packages you installed after flashing OpenWrt onto your Router. You cannot remove packages on the SquashFS partition!
Please send reproducible bugs to our ticket system.
You can check yourself. The OpenWrt repositories are brows-able by web browser. E.g.
- it makes no sense to have this software in the repositories, because it is too bloated/not suited for embedded environments
- nobody has thought on packaging this software for OpenWrt yet
- create the package yourself: Creating a package
- do nothing and wait until package becomes available
That be because the firewall-package comes with a configuration already. Certain user chains are created, and packets put into them. When you then later try to catch packets in the
INPUT chain, there won't be any, because they are being put into user chains (maybe something like
lan_input) before that.
Anytime you can type
iptables -Lto see how things are currently setup, but best thing is, to always know your own setup.
Unless you installed some other log daemons OpenWrt uses by default busybox-klogd and busybox-syslogd for logging. Both use the same circular buffer, which can be from to in size. Default is . Access with command
Typically you will see something like this:
root@OpenWrt:~# iwconfig wlan0 mode master Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
It's documented here.
