Creating a Wi-Fi hotspot on a router with firmware OpenWRT

The purpose of this guide is to help in the setup of a Wireless Router or an Access Point for use with our Wi-Fi Hotspot service.
The procedure we will be illustrating is divided into three phases:

  • Selection and downloading of the OpenWRT firmware to be installed on your router
  • Installation of the firmware
  • Adding a configuration script to the router

In case of doubt or difficulty, you can also use our utility Router Configurator which in most cases is able to fully automate the configuration process.
