Trying to install a NUT client on RT-N66U

My old RT-N66U (Firmware:380.70) has been a wifi access point, and a router connecting my NAS to the network.
Recently I installed a new UPC, and was looking for a way to get some stats.

The N66 has never had much to do, but now I thought to install the NUT client on it so I can see pretty pictures of my power usage.

Sadly I cannot even get AMTM installed on the thing. A 7.5 Gb usb drive is attached, formatted and scripts are enabled. The command

curl -Os && sh amtm

fails silently , or at least gives no visible result. Not even in the log.

The folder /jffs/scripts/ remains empty.

Am I expecting to much from the n66? Or am I missing something simple / silly..?..

Remove the "silent" flag from the curl command to see the error. I suspect it's a certificate issue.
curl -O

AMTM now installs, but trying to install entware then still fails- no reason given:
Getting from
! Module entware_setup.mod download failed

Trying to update gives me
! amtm: unreachable

Update(s) aborted, could not retrieve version

but why? Ping (from the network tools in the Merlin web ui) returns

I think it's the same certificate issue because your firmware is so old. Search the forums for previous discussions about this problem.

ok, that helps. It'll have to wait as the search feature is, today, not doing me any favors..

But thanks for the quick help!

Yeah, the search feature seems a bit broken sometimes.

Try this:
echo insecure >> $HOME/.curlrc
curl -Os && sh
