I'm struggling to get printer sharing working on my TP-Link Archer C7. I have to use ipkg to install p910nd but my ipkg is broken and won't install anything. The problem is in the ipkg.conf file, the paths there point to links that no longer exist.

I am using the latest version of dd-wrt - r27805

from my ipkg.conf

src barrier_breaker http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/atheros/packages

this link no longer exists. I believe the correct path is

http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ath25/generic/packages/packages/

but you would have to verify this for yourself. Until this path is fixed I can't use ipkg to install any new software.

I did some research on the OpenWrt packages and I found out that Barrier Breaker is an obsolete and unmaintained version. The current version is Chaos Calmer and it was released ... last Friday. Oh! So dd-wrt is not so long out of date, this just happened. Time to update those links in ipkg.conf! Please hurry since I'm under a lot of pressure to get this printer networked.
