LEDE on a TPLink-WDR4300 Router

Categories: OpenWRT

For networking at home I currently use a TP-Link WDR4300 router; four years ago I installed OpenWRT on it, a linux-based operating system for routers. I last updated the OS on the router in 2016. Given the number of significant security holes found recently in various security protocols, updating it again has been on my to-do list for a few months.

Sadly the OpenWRT site is dormant/dead - no updates since 2016. Fortunately the LEDE Project is continuing work on the same code-base. Installing the latest LEDE release on my router went extremely smoothly - just 5 minutes work.

I have updated my openwrt-on-tplink-wdr4300 article to point to the LEDE project site.
