    [Dev] Documentation for building the firmware under WSL2

    Since Windows 10 version 2004 (and WSL2) are now officially available outside of the Insider Preview program, I figured I should finally clean up my notes, and document how to setup WSL2 to compile Asuswrt-Merlin. I initially tried this on my new laptop to see how the performance was. First...

    My Own Router Admin Page?

    I know PHP, Javascript, and Python. Does anyone know how to create your own page in the admin web GUI? I want to create some addons. There must be some kind of hooks to do it.

    [Review] - GL.iNet AR300M Travel Router/IOT Hub

    Place marker for now - as I have some open questions to the OEM... It's a neat little device as a travel router, IOT hub, and developer box - QC-Atheros based and fully supported by OpenWRT. While it's only an N300/WiFi (4) device, the software support makes it worthwhile - and the hardware...

    Working dev environment

    I'd like to modificate some little things on my router, so it'd be great to have a working development environment. I tried to import the whole git project in CLion, but I have no idea how to tell CLion where all the sources are located. What IDE is the best for that purpose and how do I have to...
