OpenWifi is Open Source software, built on OpenWrt, and currently runs on Atheros (ar71xx) based chipsets.
With Openwifi we aim to provide tools for data collection and measurement over residential links. Such tools may impose a higher load on the router than regular firmwares, and may require more storage than the router has available by default.
We have tested and deployed our software on Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH and on Linksys WRT160NL routers which provide a USB port for external storage, and have enough processing power to run our test scripts.
The specifications of the above routers are:
|Spec||Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH||Linksys WRT160NL|
The software packages and configurations in the OpenWiFi firmware have been customized to allow the following funtions:
Dual Wireless LANs
Our reference implementation configures the router with two SSIDs running on two separate VLANs
