the first line i changed to https because http gets 404

I've only found only one reference on the Internet related to this IP...and I began to find it odd that out of these two threads, and the one I found...2 mention Chaos Calmer...all three share in common...it's an issue with an older OpenWrt version.
I suggest you download the files needed to use https to a PC using https and scp them to the router. If at all possible you should upgrade it to 17 og 18 for security. 15 hasn't been maintained for ages.
Per, I thank you for your efforts. I understand it isn't much used however, I finally found the working official mirrors and all versions are here at https://wiki.openwrt.org/about/mirrors
