Table of Hardware TOH Chaos Calmer 15.05.1?

Hi, how do I know all devices I can us with Chaos Calmer 15.05.1 ??
Thanks !!!!

Don't. I15.05.1 is very outdated and considered insecure.

If you are going to get a router, look here
These router are supported by the latest revision, and likely to be supported by the updates for next couple of years.

Before I answer the question, why would you want to run a version that is so far out of support that it has known, significant vulnerabilities in the kernel, application software, and even the 802.11 protocols?

Also, be aware that any device with 4 MB of flash and 32 MB of RAM is on "life support" and likely will never be able to run a secure version of firmware without significant effort on your part.

At least 16 MB of flash and at least 128 MB of RAM is recommended for any new purchases.

Suitable devices are available starting at under US$20

If you have a good reason to run Chaos Calmer (and I haven't heard a convincing one yet, and have heard so many that I've lost count), you can go to and find all devices that show supported since at 15.05.1 or earlier, and supported current release at 15.05.1 or later.[Supported+Since+Rel*~]=15

I have develop an C program that uses nodogsplash_0.9_beta9.9.9-1 with Chaos_Chalmer.

  • Can I use another firmware with that components ?
  • Which version is more secure ?
  • I need a very stable version that support a lot of routers.

Thank you !!!!

Since you wrote the code, why not - you tell us?

18.06.2 (the most current version at time of this posting)

If you absolutely need nodogsplash_0.9_beta9.9.9-1 (2014) rather than the current version, it is probably easier and almost certainly more secure to port it to OpenWrt v18 (or v19, which is imminent). The current version packaged is 3.2.1, from feeds/routing/nodogsplash/Makefile

Personally, I'd worry about running an ancient version of the kernel, OS, wireless, and captive portal software in what I would guess is a public or commercial setting.

I'm not sure why there is such attraction to Chaos Calmer and a long-obsolete version of nodogsplash. It isn't the first time it has come up. Note, for example, the kernel crashes with someone trying in Help understanding error log in Archer C7 v4 with OpenWrt Chaos Chalmer

Searching on "nodogsplash" will return many threads, as well as some suggestions of what high-volume users select for their hardware.

There are several threads on low- and moderate-priced devices that you might want to look at. Long, but full of opinions is

I have never used ZBT hardware, but it sounds like this user has significant good experience with them

(I have personal and very good experience with GL.iNet hardware, but it appears to be a bit more expensive than the ZBT device.)

Because of the name, maybe!
