hello dear classmates! first of all I want to thank your great work in making our router TEW-827DRU v1.0R manage to run openwrt. Jmomo thank you very much! .
1-wanted to ask if it really worth changing from factory to openwrt?
2-Is the firmware change dangerous? Is it possible to return to the factory state? with the tplink it is very simple and transmits tranquility.
I currently have it in the factory and I do not try to install openwrt (I have openwrt in other routers, very happy indeed ...) I mainly use the TEW-827DRU v1.0R as a torrent client and its small NAS configuration through the samba protocol, I guess What is the service that I activated, although I do not really notice it (maybe because it really works great?) haha sarcasm ...) and I see files from the PC with kodi, the speed of file copy, I notice slow 50mbs ... its usb 3.0 is connected to a hdd unit segate of 2TB portable (all this configuration is lan through port 1000mb). To finish I can use the openvpn function to enter from anywhere to supply it. Through openwrt I can install packages for these specific functions and for what you mention your memory is quite large. I am a new user in this world of openwrt, thanks for your time and sorry my poor english I am from Argentina. For the other user who wants to buy a unit of this equipment that is from Brazil, I buy it at the freeshop of the rio de janeiro airport when flying to my country (beautiful country, in love with its beaches! Buzios). I hope this information is useful to you.
