Hi all ,
I have a Plusnet 2704n router which I want to install openwrt so I can use it to get Internet on my desktop without having a WiFi dongle.
I will use an ethernet wire to connect the 2704n to my pc . Will the 2704n be able to connect to my main ISP router without problems ? can I connect other devices wirelessly to the 2704n or will that not be possible?
Most importantly which firmware do I install to it as I have the expert_user option available ? Do I just use the upgrade button?
I mean I want to keep the mac and serial numbers as the original, so do I install the firmware and then type the serial number thru telnet ?
If not how do I change mac and serial number after installation?
I am looking at the whole image with Luci web as my preference .
If more information is required please let me know.
Yes that's the page I was reading but I wanted to know how do I change the mac and serial to my original ones ?
What I mean to say is that the full image will not have my serial number and original mac number.
@frollic yes great does the full image ( google drive download) in the below thread have 19.07 ?
i think the gdrive only contains a CFE image part, the openwrt image is the link above it.
Where it says Easy Option , whole image isn't that Openwrt with cfe and Luci web interface ?
I'm trying to prepare everything so I don't brick or half install the firmware.
ah, missed that link, yeah it probably does
that should really be the 1st option in that paragraph
So I've installed the firmware thanks everyone for the replies but now was wondering about my other question ...
Can I connect other devices wirelessly to the 2704n or will that not be possible?
Also I have a network A on channel 13 but that is not coming up when I scan for networks where as network B on channel 1 is coming up fine on the scans.
