OpenWrt on Archer C50v4 – Part 2

OpenWrt on Archer C50v4 „- Part 1“

… after quite some time I have managed to contiue writing and documenting.

Installing LuCi and updating

To be able to install LuCi and do any other operations with opkg I connected my PC to the Archer via Ethernet Port 1. Laptop has DHCP active.
Then I made sure I am able to start a ssh session to the router ssh root@192.168.1.1 and this is working.
The next step was to connect the router , WAN Port, to my network (Internet access [No Proxy, no any other auth required] DHCP Server in Network active) and tried a ping to any known IP ping 8.8.8.8 to check if the internet connection is working correctly

The next thing to do was then:

  1. Update the software list
  2. show what packages can be upgraded
  3. Update opkg
  4. intsall LuCi
  5. Update all other packages (with one command) [Source]
    1. Please be very carefull doing this. Pay much attention to the „file system notes“ from „upgrade <pkgs>“
opkg update
opkg list-upgradable
opkg upgrade opkg
opkg install luci
opkg list-upgradable | cut -f 1 -d ' ' | xargs opkg upgrade

As soon as luci is installed you can connect to your Archer via Web-interface and do all of your configuration as usually.

Please be reminded that there is no password set by default!

Thanks for your attention.
