OpenWrt is firmware or software that runs on wireless access points such as those used to provide Wifi to home internet users. Using OpenWrt can increase speed, improve reliability and add extra features. There will be a free Workshop held at TOG on Sunday 16th of December at 3pm. No need to book, just turn up. If possible, but not essential, bring your home router with you.
OpenWrt is an alternative and open source firmware for wireless/ADSL routers.
Quote from there web page:
“Instead of trying to create a single, static firmware, OpenWrt provides a fully writable filesystem with package management. This frees you from the application selection and configuration provided by the vendor and allows you to customize the device through the use of packages to suit any application. For developer, OpenWrt is the framework to build an application without having to build a complete firmware around it; for users this means the ability for full customization, to use the device in ways never envisioned.”
