i just want to know if it is possible to install openwrt without being connected with ethernet and configure it with wifi (for the first connection)
I guess you should do your own compilation with WiFi enabled, but I have no idea how to do this or if it is possible.
- You can install OpenWrt offline; but you have to use the Internet to pre-download all files and needed tools
- Since OpenWrt has WiFi disabled by default, it's impossible to proceed with setup over WiFi, until you have configured and enabled it yourself
- @castillofrancodamian offers an option - to build your own image with WiFi enabled
/etc/config/wireless by using the
./files/ directory of a custom build. This also lets you set up the SSID, encryption, key, ...
Great! Where do I find
In the root of your build tree
I mean, do I have to create the configuration file with that directory to take the WiFi settings?
mkdir -p path/to/your/openwrt/files/etc/config
isn't what you're asking
No, you could go more complicated and put something in
/etc/uci-defaults/ that will change how
/etc/config/wireless is generated, or complicate it further by creating your own package for that, rather than adding it to
I created the wireless file in
/files/etc/config/, It will not work?
I used the ImageBuilder with the command
make image PROFILE=archer-c60-v1 PACKAGES="htop nano luci-app-sqm luci-app-ddns curl luci-theme-material" FILES=files/, and the image was successfully generated.
I already flashed the image and the router was blocked. The TFTP also does not work. It restarts without interruption
