Having trouble setting up Tor on OpenWRT router

Hi, I just want to preface this by saying that I am not the most tech savvy. So it's very possible that this is failing because some trivial error that I've made.

Right, so I followed along with this tutorial:

But it never connects to the internet. When I run: logread -e Tor; netstat -l -n -p | grep -e tor, I get the following:

Thu May 18 17:48:31 2023 daemon.warn Tor[2511]: Missing mapping for virtual addr ess '[scrubbed]'. Refusing.

I also sometimes get

Thu May 18 17:48:26 2023 daemon.notice Tor[2511]: I learned some more directory information, but not enough to build a circuit: We need more microdescriptors: w e have 4530/6957, and can only build 27% of likely paths. (We have 65% of guards bw, 66% of midpoint bw, and 64% of exit bw = 27% of path bw.)

and it just pauses at a Bootstrap %. I also have my router on client mode, so that I may wireless tether it to my phone to provide it with internet. As a result, I've had to change the IP of my router from to Idk if that could be a reason. Please help

What device are you using? Your device might not have enough RAM to run Tor client in which case you would have to connect a storage device for a page swap area to get Tor working.
