Optimized build LEDE 17.01 / OpenWrt 18.06 / libreCMC for "small devices" TP-LINK WR740N(D) WR741N(D) WR743N(D) WR841N/D) All Versions

I want to use adblock snapshot version, mini upnp shapshot version in new images. If you do that, please give me links for download. My router is WR841N V11. Thank you so much.

Hi, have you considered building a new version with upnp and adblock support, based on the 18.06 branch?
If not, I'd be interested in you previous build with adblock support for the WR841 N v7.

Bad luck mine, I had complications and I could not rescue that compilation; But publish a new based on OpenWrt 18.06 The only thing that does not add was the Dark theme because it is not compatible with this new branch.

New update Ver 4 : Zram-SWAP ??


I have tried to compile but in branch 18.06 the Luci interface has increased in size due to the new interface and there are new base packages, which has left little free space to include with Zram-SWAP as I have been managing it in previous compilations. Which has led me to use * Squashfs block size a 1024 Kib.
I will continue working on it :nerd_face:

Hey can you please explain how to compile an image? I want to make my own with sqm only but I am lost in the walls of text, too much information is confusing me.

This is not the right topic to ask for the basics of image compilation.

I try using all your images. 2 openwrt images allways run at high loading (>1), lower RAM's space than 2 LEDE images and ping increase from 5 until 7. So, can you give me another LEDE image has mini upup, adblock stable? (I don't need to use SQM)
It is a best image for me. My router is WR841N v11.


If you do not use it, try to keep SQM scripts disabled in any of my custom builds.

@xhaka Ok. That's good. So, will you create new LEDE images in the future?


Maybe, build new images I do not know, at this moment I think building images based on fork LibreCMC I pass the data @Herten and it makes me a bit more stable even if their packages are not the latest version, we'll see what happens

How libreCMC vs Lede build ??


I think it solves your doubts here

Why libreCMC
libreCMC FAQ

It says nothing about which functionality it contains, only what it doesn't contain.

You could be more curious and thoroughly review the libreCMC page I've just put some links.
I use this distribution since the kernel does not have proprietary code

Except for the source code I think I've skimmed through everything on that site. There is hardly any documentation there so it didn't take long.

Hello, how are you ? Great job first. I have a TP LINK WR741NDV1 (350 mhz) and I would like to install OPENWRT on it only because of the SQM function, I can not play with high ping anymore. Can you tell me if this router fulfills the role of being a simple router + SQM? No plugin in addition. Neither wireless will I need, just router (lans) + SQM function. Is it quiet for this router to work? Congratulations again.

Hi @pedrohsk1
I tell you that I own a WR741 v4xx router and of course you can perform the function that you need from just a simple router (DHCP, PPPoE, etc) without enabling WiFi I suggest installing LEDE 17.01.6 in its Lite version of my other post
[UPDATE] LEDE 17.01.6 custom builds for TP-LINK WR841N(D) WR941N(D) WR743N(D) WR741N(D) WR740N(D) All Versions Highly recommended

But you like OpenWrt you can use any of my custom builds but without enabling the apps that are not necessary (Adblock, DDNS, UPnP, etc)

Thanks for the quick response. Yes, that's right. The TL WR741 hardware is fully capable of handling no gaps with PPPoE + SQM function, without wireless? Is your Router not 100%? does it stand quietly? If so, I'll install it and come back with feedback later. Thanks again xhaka. ps :sorry, my english is bad i'm brazilian =DDD.
