I want to turn an old wifi router me and my little sister found in a dumpster into a web server so like
You connect to the wifi network, or plug in with ethernet. And then you can access my website. The only exception is that it cannot provide access to the internet as that costs money. I want to be able to make a "mini" operating system without using complicated scripts and present it in the LuCI interface so you can use the router from browser tab. The big issue is: I don't have a power adapter for it which results in nothing happening :'( also if I did, I would probably not be able to modify the router since OpenWrt doesn't have an OS image for the specific router I have. it supports v4, v3, v2, and v1 for the router model but I have a v5. When are they going to work on that?
Well enough of me ranting about modifying wifi routers. I just really got inspired by the idea bc my dad had to setup up the home router again because my big sister reset the settings somehow. When I figured out he could manage the router settings via a website stored on the router (since you cant connect to the internet unless its set up so that means the website is stored in the router)
Oh god, did I just rant more. I just have so much to say I guess!
