DD-WRT AND OPENWRT WHICH IS GOOD WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

DD-WRT AND OPENWRT

Contacting a third-party issue new firmware 3rd party firmware, most friends often encountered is: DD-WRT and OpenWRT which is good what is the difference? 

Here we would like to offer some guidance:


HISTORICAL ORIGINS

According to wikipedia universal explanation, basically extant most popular third-party firmware including DD-WRT and Gargoyle are derived from OpenWRT:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wireless_router_firmware_projects

We have to admit OpenWRT is the most pure, sometimes dd-wrt modify something inside, into a mixed product. If you use the normal no problem, but problems to DEBUG, it is troublesome.


FIRMWARE SIZE

For example some of routers DD-WRT size is: 18M (Standard Edition LJ STD), the size of the OpenWRT is: 2.8M.

But the big difference is the DD-WRT itself integrates a large number of applications, if you use the normal no problem, then problems to DEBUG, it is troublesome. Such as DD-WRT and routes are not compatible.

 

ACTUAL FEELING

OPENWRT on my router stable

OPENWRT user interface is very suitable for the installation and commissioning of the new suite 

OPENWRT kit can be installed on demand (you can put on a streamlined version of dd, but the installation of a new suite dd will torture you)

OPENWRT provides a wide range of applications (such as dd-wrt can not install scanner driver to set the scanner cloud server, of course, if you are not bored willing to spend a month on the total can be resolved)

Some people say that you can use the dd-wrt optware by installing libs way, we think this is simply equivalent to the Mac by Virtual Machine running on a PC. If you use the normal no problem, but problems to DEBUG, it is extreme trouble.

And finally the one repeated many times, then repeat, if you use the Atheros chip router, OpenWRT will usually be a much better choice.

That is all.
