By now you’re probably familiar with the OpenWRT router.
OpenWtrend has a whole slew of router tutorials covering everything from configuring your router for different tasks to setting up your router to configure and update your router.
For the purposes of this article, I’ll focus on OpenWts router configuration.
If you’re looking for more router tutorials, you might want to check out our tutorial series, the Open WRT Router: Configure Your Router, or our series on Router Installation.
If not, we’ve got plenty of other routers and router setups that are good for starting out with your new router.
If OpenWttr is what you’re after, you should check out the Open Wi-Fi Tutorials series, which includes router setup guides, firmware installation guides, and a full tutorial series on how to set up a Wi-fi router.
Let’s get started.
OpenWiFi Router Configuration RouterConfiguration is the router configuration page that you’ll see when you first open your router up to the Internet.
You’ll see the default configuration options for your router, and you’ll also see the number of Ethernet ports and wireless interfaces available on your router (and in the case of the ASUS RT-AC68U, the maximum number of connected Ethernet adapters).
The first thing you’ll want to do is find the router that you want to configure.
Open the router’s configuration page.
On the left side, under the router name, there’s a dropdown menu to the left that lets you specify which configuration you want: OpenWtp (WRT) or OpenWPT.
If the name matches your router’s IP address, then that’s your router configuration, otherwise you’ll get a message that says “The router configuration file(s) have been saved in the configuration directory /etc/wrt/routing.d”.
Open the configuration file.
If there’s nothing in the file, click the “Save” button.
You can save the configuration, delete it, or re-run the configuration.
If everything’s OK, you can close the router.
Now that we’ve saved our router configuration in the default directory, we’ll open the router, so you can configure it.
The configuration file opens in a new window, and there’s one line that shows the network connection number.
The network connection can be a static number or an IP address.
If it’s static, it’s a static IP address (and we’ll get to that later).
If it is an IP, we can also see it by typing its IP address in the address bar.
To find the port number, click “Add Ports” on the left-hand side of the configuration window.
The first option that comes up on the port list is the “Port Number”.
You can also type in the number by clicking the plus sign (+) and then typing in the desired number in the box.
For example, you’d type “10200” and click “Port 587” to get the number 10200.
You could also type “100”, and click the plus symbol to get “100/2”.
If the number is an IPv4 address, the “Add Address” field will show a number from 0 to 255.
For IPv6, you’ll enter the address as an IPv6 address.
When you click “Continue” on that field, you will see the next screen that tells you which network adapters you need.
To select which adapters you’ll need, you would click the Add Network button, and then type in your desired number and click OK.
If all goes well, you’re done with the router setup.
If, after some trial-and-error, you don’t get a satisfactory result, you have a few options.
You have a number of options for how much RAM to allocate to your network adapters.
The more RAM, the more bandwidth you’ll have available for the different tasks you’re doing with the routers network.
You also have the ability to change the network address, IP address and MAC address of your network adapter, and to change whether or not you’ll be using DHCP.
You might also want to turn on DHCP.
If this is something that you’re familiar with, you’ve probably already figured out how to get it working.
Let me take a quick look at what that looks like, because I’ll be explaining it a bit later.
If your router doesn’t have a network adapter that can connect to the internet, you could configure it in the same way as above, but I’ll also explain how to use the “Set-NetworkAdapter” command to get all the networking settings.
Now, the next step is to turn off the DHCP server.
This command will turn off DHCP on your network and allow it to automatically reconnect.
The commands to turn this off are: /etc /etc: Disable DHCP server /etc, disable: /dev
