What is the latest OpenWRT (with luci) that runs on a WNR2000v4? I had been running Chaos Calmer on my Wiener Two Thousand for a long time but figured, for security and to hopefully fix a performance bug, it made sense to upgrade.
According to this page, https://openwrt.org/toh/netgear/wnr2000, the WNR2000v4 is supposed to work with 18.06.1. However, the prebuilt images are broken as they are too large and leave no space for the configuration files to be saved. (Strangely, I got no warning about the overlay being on top of RAM. Hopefully someone will update luci to show a big warning at the top of every page when such disasters occur.)
I tried rebuilding the images using the imagebuilder to remove IPv6 and PPP. That still wasn't small enough. I may have been doing it wrong. Here's my
make image PROFILE=WNR2000V4 PACKAGES="uhttpd uhttpd-mod-ubus libiwinfo-lua luci-base luci-app-firewall luci-mod-admin-full luci-theme-bootstrap -ip6tables -odhcp6c -kmod-ipv6 -kmod-ip6tables -odhcpd-ipv6only -ppp -ppp-mod-pppoe -opkg" CONFIG_IPV6=n
I'm not sure what else to remove at this point.
I tried to find a less new version of OpenWRT. I found LEDE 17.01, but its DHCP server did not work. Eventually, after much googling, I was able to get back to Chaos Calmer and that did indeed work. (It would be very good if there was a link to it on the OpenWRT WNR2000v4 wiki page.)
But now, and this is new, the rfkill button on the back of the router has to be pressed once after booting up or else WiFi is disabled. (I presume I can make shell script to fix it, but any help with that would be appreciated, too).
What is the recommended firmware for this device? What other packages can I remove to save space? If I do manage to build a small enough image of 18.06, where would I post it so others don't have to go through this hassle?
Thank you and sorry for having so many questions.
