Warning!
This section describes actions that might damage your device or firmware. Proceed with care!

The installation of OpenWrt firmware is device specific.
Procedures for specific devices should be found in the OpenWrt wiki.
See OpenWrt Table of Hardware for available procedures.
If your device is not listed, information on this page may be helpful.

Connecting

Please reset router to factory settings to avoid problems with some previous configuration.

Connect PC computer to Comfast router web interface.
Go to Firmware upgrade section, select file and press Upgrade.
The firmware upgrade procedure can take few minutes.

During this process you will see information about processing.
If OpenWRT firmware was previously installed on your router, be sure and disable Keep settings option during firmware upgrade.

Do not power off the router during the firmware upgrade, as it can cause the device to crash or become unusable.

Reconnect LAN cable or Disable/Enable NIC card in order to get new valid IP address in 192.168.45.x range from router.

Enable WiFi, set SSID name and click Save.
As DNS Server select Custom and set 192.168.45.1

Please note, if the DNS IP address isn’t 192.168.45.1, the whitelist will have no effect.

By default as Network Protocol is set DHCP, but you can choose Network Protocol based on your needs.
Our recommendation is to use DHCP Network Protocol.
