FAQ

  • Why is LuCI web interface so slow!?
    It's because LuCI web interface is forcing the connection via HTTPS.
    Disabling HTTPS redirection fixes the issue.

  • How can I disable HTTPS redirection for LuCI?

    1. Connect to your router via SSH.
    2. Type vi /etc/config/uhttpd
    3. Find and change line option redirect_https 1 to option redirect_https 0
    4. Reboot your router and clear your browser cache.
  • Why are you using csso, UglifyJS, and LuaMinify instead of [other-minifiers]?
    These are the minifiers that I tested and worked the best for me.

  • Why html, htm, and svg files are not minified?
    Minifying HTML files will break LuCI web interface. Plus, you do not get significant extra free space by minifying these files.

  • Can I install [some-package]?
    No, there is not enough space.

  • Why is OPKG Package Manager installed then?
    OPKG must be installed so that DDNS works properly.

  • Can you include [some-package]?
    No, there is not enough space.
    Instead, try compiling your own build and adding your own packages.

  • How can I compile my own build / add my own packages?
    Refer to Quick Image Building Guide.

  • How can I get additional free space for my custom build?
    Refer to Saving firmware space.

Thanks for your build...
A question: Do you know if the router has enough space to switch QoS for SQM?

Thanks.
Juliano

@julianocs Yes! You can Install SQM, but you have to remove QoS and OpenVPN.
I will try to compile and upload images with SQM this week.

Hello @patchez!

Thanks for the build with SQM.
Installed today on my router, it´s working perfect.

Juliano

Hi,

I need wpad instead of wpad-mini.
Can i do that by myself via opkg?
Or do i need a custom build?
841v8 with latest lede.

Thanks
Attaros

Normally, yes - by using opkg to remove wpad-mini and installind wpad. However your device might not offer enough flash to accomplish that, even with imagebuilder it might get tight.

Ciao,
I tried but getting no more space.
Need 478k, have 178k.

I tried to make space but i suppose i need a custom build.

I wanted to connect the router with WPA2-EAP to campus network.

Thanks
Attaros

Hi there !
Keep up the good work ! Could you rebase this against v18.06.0-rc1 ?
Also, I'd like to follow in your footsteps. Would you be kind enough to post a tutorial / your buildscript ?

Thanks!

Hello @patchez.

Its possible upgrade SQM Build too?

Thanks.
Juliano

Thanks @patchez.

When i update my router i give a feedback to you.

Juliano

Hello @patchez.

Tried your firmware (SQM) now... Wireless isn´t working... Also not present in Luci menu... (maybe some missing module?). Switching back to previously firmware...

Thanks for your work and waiting for next build...

Juliano

Hello @patchez.

Still not working.
Now the wireless menu appear in Luci, but radio does not turn on.

Juliano.

Hi @julianocs think the WiFi does not work in this compilation because this is missing:

# CONFIG_DRIVER_11N_SUPPORT is not set
# CONFIG_DRIVER_11W_SUPPORT is not set

@xhaka

How to fix that?
It's necessary compile the whole project again?

@patchez, i think that information would be useful... :slight_smile:

Juliano

Hello @patchez.

Now it worked.
Thank you very much.

I will try to learn about how to make my own build...

Regards,
Juliano

Hi @patchez

I have followed your compilations, to my bad luck; I could not install them because it was impossible for me to get a wr841 router. I am the owner of several wr741 v4xx router.
I ask @patchez would there be the possibility, even if it is remote that you adapt your latest compilation for the TP-LINK wr741. Thank you :grinning:

Guys,

the latest postings regarding 18.06 do not fit to the topic, which is "17.01.4 build for TL-WR841N(D)". Please open a new topic for 18.06.

Hello @patchez.

I had to switch back to 17.01.4 ...
SQM isn't working correct with 18.06-rc1 (it was fixed 6 days ago).
Upnp is giving me strange errors on log too..

Have you considered make a build using snapshot files?

Thanks.
Juliano

LEDE 17.01.6 link down????, 17.01.5
