 +===== Known Issues =====
 +
 +  * Only WEP encryption is available in Wifi settings! not sure why - stock Netgear firmware supported WPA-PSK - need to check, may be a package install issue?
 +[http://​oldwiki.openwrt.org/​OpenWrtDocs(2f)WhiteRussian(2f)Configuration.html#​head-f335c44d5b896564e2fb57831ceb0ab3958a668a] suggests that a package called “nas” is needed, but that does not exist in the backfire packages available from [http://​downloads.openwrt.org/​backfire/​10.03/​ar7/​packages/​] - however there are some “wpa-*” packages there.
 +[https://​forum.openwrt.org/​viewtopic.php?​id=24493] suggests that wpad-mini is needed for WPA and wpad for WPA Enterprise - yet to confirm that this works - doubtful as that topic refers to Broadcom chipsets so it may not work on TI AR7 ... [http://​www.lizardking.biz/​2010/​03/​qwest-actiontec-gt701-wg-ppoe-openwrt/​] seems to reinforce ​
 +
 +  * Further upgrade(s) via web and sysupgrade command not supported, manual upgrade required, here’s how to do that at the device cmdline: <​code>​mtd -r write firmware.trx linux</​code>​
