When choosing the firmware image it is of outmost importance that it matches the actual hardware revision and model of your router. Sometimes the hardware revision is specified on the serial number sticker on the outside of the package box. Please consult the OpenWrt documentation for more information on specific hardware revisions.
We have tested the images for a few different hardware revisions. Those images are listen in green color. The firmware images in gray are untested and may render your router unrecoverable, so please use those with caution.
Connect a computer to one of the LAN ports on the router. Open a web browser window and type the LAN IP address of the router. The default IP address is written on a sticker underneath the router. Log in with the username admin and password password.
Navigate to the Router Upgrade submenu, located under the Maintenance menu. Select the firmware image you previously downloaded and press Upload. The router will now write the firmware image to flash and reboot. The whole process will take a few minutes. Please do not unplug the power from the router during this period.
When the router has started again you will reach the web interface on 192.168.1.1. It will display a login page and prompt for the root password. By default no password is set, telnet is open on the LAN ports and the Wi-Fi network is disabled. If you set the root password the telnet access is replaced by SSH (Secure Shell) on the LAN. The only thing you really have to do is to enable the Wi-Fi network in the Wi-Fi menu and choose WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK encryption. This will also enable the Anyfi.net remote access functionality. Please proceed to the Getting started guide and try it out.
