I'm very new to OpenWRT and I have just received my new Archer C6 (v. 3.2).
There is only a snapshot release for this model. My question is do I have to install the snapshot upgrade after the Snapshot Install version ?
The reason I'm asking is that I saw few youtube videos where the Upgrade version is installed immediately after the Install version.
I was previously under the impression that you only use the Snapshot Upgrade version to upgrade an already existing Openwrt installation to a newer version but I'm very confused now since multiple videos (for the same model) are showing that you have to install the Install version from stock then followed by the upgrade. Shouldn't both files have the same version ?
Also, the device page mentions an upgrade process but it's not clear whether this a step that needs to be done immediately after the initial install or only incase of version updates in the future.
This is the process that is demonstrated in many videos:
opkg install wget
wget [URL] --no-check-certificate
sysupgrade -v [FILENAME]
opkg install luci-ssl-nginx
opkg install --force-depends --force-maintainer --force-overwrite wpad-openssl
In other videos, the Upgrade file is installed from the GUI after LUCI is installed.
This is what I have done:
1- Downloaded and Installed Snapshot version from stock firmware GUI
2- opkg update
3- opkg install luci
This worked for me like a charm but i'm wondering if skipped steps this way and missing important components.
Totally sorry for the very newbie question.
