Wget OpenWrt Version 21.02.0

good morning,
I accidentally deleted wget in openwrt. Now Download won't work for me and I wanted to ask how and what ways do I have to re-install wget?

wget is a link to /bin/uclient-fetch, try to re-create soft link ln -sf /bin/uclient-fetch /usr/bin/wget


download the corresponding *.ipk to your pc, then upload to owrt and opkg install *.ipk


If you can access the router via ssh:

Look here https://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/21.02.0/packages/ and select / enter the directory of your router (e.g. mine is WRT1900ACS -> arm_cortex-a9_vfpv3-d16).

Then go to the directory packages and download wget. Scp it to the router and then install it via opkg install wget-XXX.ipk

BTW: My wget is provided by uclient-fetch

If wget was part of the built-in packages of the firmware, you should be able to find the missing parts in the /rom directory, IIUC this will show you the contents of the initial firmware...

Or just upgrade to 21.02.1.
