Further Configuration for wndr3700v2

You can configure the router via its Web interface or at the command line, via ssh.

Get the box up on the internet. If you are connecting to a cable modem or some other dynamic IP providing host, just connect the WAN port to the router, and reboot the router. This will do “most” of the right thing. Some caveats:

**** In the event that your Internet connection is static, you will need to supply the correct IP address, gateway, and DNS server information via the Web interface on the gateway.

**** If you just want to add it to your existing network (supplying dhcp or static) do so… but remember that the CeroWrt gateway will also NAT everything connected downstream from it, unless you setup a static route to it and explicitly turn NAT off.

**** DNSSEC will not work properly if the router cannot get the correct time. It will disable itself until it can.
*Enable the wifi interfaces. Via the web interface, you need to go to the network->wireless tab, turn on the radios, assign SSIDs and channels, etc. WPA2 seems to be the best crypto setting. You should be able to connect wirelessly and do stuff at this point, like surf the web)

Update the package database and install any additional needed packages.*

Run the following commands

  1. opkg update # should do the right thing
  2. opkg list | less
  3. opkg install whatever_else_you_want (netperf and iperf for example, are useful, and there are multiple other packages in the pipeline)
