The way you change the OS of your desktop or laptop like you upgrade windows eight to ten or ten to eleven or, assume you shift from Windows to Linux or Linux to windows again. Similarly, WiFi router’s OS or firmware Whatever you call it, it can be changed. Remember I am not talking about updating the firmware rather than changing the firmware This means that by changing the firmware that is already installed on your router you will install another new type of firmware.
So OpenWrt means open wireless router is just like an operating system that can install on compatible models of any routers. Compatible means that this operating system has a specific hardware requirement. Which I will discuss later. So if you match the requirement of WRT operating system You can install it. Or you should install. It will give you some extra benefits and you will have to meet some conditions to install it And this OS has some limitations also. I will try to present the details of the theoretical issues of the open WRT OS to you in today’s video It is a Linux-based open-source operating system and it has a web interface.
It can be more effective and stable than the default firmware of your router only if you can do it correctly. So the outer of the OpenWrt
has a huge amount of options, a lot of settings. Which could turn a consumer-level router into an enterprise-level router It was developed in 2004 as an up gate firmware for the Linksys WRT fifty-four G wireless software. Currently, the stable version is 21.02 And the next stable speech that is coming is 22.03 So the most important thing is that if you want to install this operating system. what should be the hardware of our router? straightforward. What should be the configuration of the router or we can install it on any router of any configuration router? Simply, you can’t install it on any router as you wish. Router hardware configuration must be compatible with OpenWrt OS Otherwise, there will be various problems in the outer one of them is net is slow. In addition, if you log in to firmware there is extreme slowness, Router overheating, router hanging, and long router loss of router longevity, these are all there.
Straightforwardly, your user experience will be going to be very bad.
Discover this Compatibility For WRT?
So now the question is how do we discover this compatibility? Very simple you will read the product description well first.
It can be on the packet, it can be on the website. Follow the user community and reviews well. I hope you get proper information about competency from these. Also routers with dual core CPU and larger through port Normal and normally is perfect for installing this OpenWrt These types of routers have good quality MU MIMO.
i.e. multiple users, multiple in multiple out. And good quality beam forming. Effective beam formation that occurs after you install OpenWrt will help make its experience better. So now you know that to install OpenWrt. What kind of router do you really have to choose? So now the thing is that after doing so many things that you have installed this OpenWrt, what will be your benefit? Or those who are already running it or what is the benefit from it.
First of all,
OpenWrt is relatively stable compared to the firmware that has stock
Many times you will see that the router is a brand new outer dual-core Router, a good configuration, Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of that satisfaction. You are not getting the stability of the network properly. The range is decreasing And these are the things that you will feel for yourself So these are the problems that are basically the hardware and software of the router that has the problem of optimization inside them, that is miss matching. That is the reason. That is to say, it comes from the bottle neck of hardware and software. OpenWrt is able to give you a very stable network from this side. And this stability he can maintain for a long time.

This operating system increases the bandwidth of the router’s throughport, Optimization will automatically increase your through port So when it increases, the issue of device management and device capacity increases a lot And in this case you will see higher data rate and better band with efficiency in Wi-Fi The results will greatly reduce latency and lagging. Will come under control. And the experience of running your internet will be even better.
Each router’s firmwire has a specific device capacity Once on top of that, the router starts to have a variety of problems. But using this OpenWrt will increase your device capacity In that case he will be able to take the load of several more devices. And heavy heavy work such as You can do all the work of downloading or streaming on many devices at once.
since bandwidth throughport and device management, device capacity etc. will be greatly improved. So from here you will have the opportunity to work together with more devices and more types of devices Also comparatively then from this router You can take extra range. You will have the opportunity to work with a better experience in the greater range. then get higher security. As it is a Linux-based operating system, the problems that are common to you are always there as there are some common limitations online Which can cause you to become infected, can easily cover those things.
Benefit of OpenWRT
OpenWRT is a relatively conservative and secure operating system. Which will provide free and complete access to the Internet to the devices under your router but protected from being hacked. In the case of stock os, that is, in the case of stock firmware, which is a specific model of a certain series Before any new upgraded model comes, the previous firmware update keeps coming but, when a new model is launched, the previous firmware update stops coming. Then we fell into a lot of trouble with those devices. Can be hacked Different types of problems are seen then the internet becomes slow.
Device management decreases In other words, there is a punch in the router.But in case of open WRT as long as the RAM, ROM and CPU of your router will be suitable to run this operating system you will continue to receive updates. Also customization of VPN server and guest network You can easily do that from the open WRT firmware These come with some more pre-install features like open vpn. So,there is no need to worry too much about vpn configuration, open vpn will prevent your ISP from snowping the activity of your outer. Moreover, the regional problem of the router is that if you go from one place to another, you will not get range, you will not get speed. You can solve such problems by installing this open WRT operating system. As you know, Open WRT is a linux based operating system As I said before.
So it can be called a level user friendly. But the bigger advantage is that you can customize it to your liking. You can add the kind of facility you want inside the router and after adding You can configure those facilities as you wish. The router has several user related and device management related features inside. Such as parental control. quality of service, band with control,
excess control, time schedule, dynamic dns, etc., etc. Some of these are given in the form of presset in the original firmware. But the amount of these is very small. And from these little presset settings you have to get your work done. Which in turn are limited to limited customization. But in open WRT you will have the opportunity to do this thing extensively And the last thing I want to say is that
download and installation of open WRT is actually free.
Who use OpenWRT?
All you need is a good quality router. But here’s the thing if you are fine with your router and its firmware Fine means okay your performance is as yours. You do not need to go to this open WRT. especially, when you are not an expert.
Risk of OpenWRT
So in this case be satisfied with the old operating system that you have Because , it is a very risky business. This is because if you make a mistake intentionally or unintentionally while installing it your outer one may become permanently brick. So, you are an expert. The range of your router has decreased without any reason. It seems so to you. The router has been bocked down for some reason. Overall performance is not the same as before. Device management also seems to take less and less. You also seem a little limited in terms of range. In that case you are a strong candidate of Open WRT and you can go for it.
