Last week there was a need for a new feature on the main office router. This feature was not available. It seemed time to explore new options. The end result was an journey through the maze of the Open Source WiFi firmware world. The center of the maze turned out to be OpenWRT or LEDE.

Installation of OpenWRT went surprising well and configuration fairly easy. Options used included USB storage, sftp server and sqm (QoS). There will be a project page on this.
