Why is the network switch software not installed?

Debwrt serves many different Openwrt devices with an universal Debian rootfilesystem. Installing all the several network switch programs could cause conflicts. Resulting in non working devices, hence a negative effect. The philosophy is to have something the works and that further tuned.

Why is the network configuration so bare bone?

It allows us to support more devices and we really can't tell if the eth0 on your device is connected to the Internet or to your LAN.

Can not telnet as root

This is a (valid) restriction in the telnet daemon. Do the telnet login as user debwrt ( and password debwrt).

How can I help?

Use Debwrt! Tell your friends about it. Provide feedback. Scratch your itch.
