    2828This plugin will always use the latest openwrt revision/kernel. However, due to changes in the OpenWrt source (which are impossible to anticipate) build errors may be encountered. Therefore this is only recommended for advanced users. With that being said, the build errors are usually remedied quite easily (if you have knowledge of how patches work) by simply updating the offending patchfile(s). Please read the README included with the plugin to increase the likelihood of success.

    60 The default network interface definition file suitable for RT-N16 can be found [source:trunk/debian/package/debwrt-net/etc/network/interfaces.broadcom here]. The following changes are probably necessary:
    61 * remove the lines marked as ''robocfg''
    62 * enable the lines marked as ''asus rt-n16''
    63 * disable the lines referring to ''/etc/firewall/firewall.sh'' (this script is not available by default)
     60The default network interface definition file for the RT-N16 can be found [source:trunk/debian/package/debwrt-net/etc/network/interfaces.broadcom here]. The following changes are necesary to bring up all the interfaces if you decide not to use the above configuration script:
     61* remove/comment out the lines marked as ''robocfg''
     62* uncomment the lines marked as ''asus rt-n16''
     63* disable the lines referring to ''/etc/firewall/firewall.sh'' (this script is not available by default. is included with package debwrt-net)
    6464* you will need to install the ''broadcom-wl'' package to use the wifi interface with encryption

     66NOTE: The above steps will not convert the rt-n16 into a router by itself, further configuration is needed. These are just the steps required to properly configure the network interfaces and make them usable.
