Upgrading OpenWrt


If you have already installed OpenWrt and like to reflash for e.g. upgrading to a new OpenWrt version you can upgrade using the mtd command line tool. It is important that you put the firmware image into the ramdisk (/tmp) before you start flashing.

LuCI Web Upgrade Process

Terminal Upgrade Process

  • Login as root via SSH on
  • Use the following commands to upgrade.

cd /tmp/
wget http://
sysupgrade /tmp/

  • If sysupgrade does not support this router, use the following commands.

cd /tmp/
wget http://
mtd write /tmp/ linux && reboot

Basic configuration
