Newbie here. Could i get a guide on how to install OpenWrt with serial, step-by-step or a link to an existing one?


  • TFTP is the Ethernet software to transfer files
  • PuTTY is a terminal emulator that talks on the Serial line

You are being unclear.. i tested both... Link a video or something if you have any.

  • See above
  • You need both

I'll try to find a vid...but PuTTy is said Debian...

Ok.. Yeah well.. I should not have used ethernet right? I should use putty right? Serial connection.. I did only use serial connection firstly..

You need both!

(Circles again - lemme find a video for you...)

BTW, this means your laptop/PC running TFTP software is set to when you do the file transfer via Ethernet cable.
