I just installed the current version of Merlin. What is the simplest/cleanest method of installing tcpdump?

Barring that, is there an overview of the different add-on packages that explains what contains what, and why i might want?

Thank you for the assist
You can install Entware through amtm script which is embedded into Asus-Merlin firmware. Just ssh into your router and type amtm, then follow instructions there.
