In my country (India) most of the routers for sale do not support DD-WRT.
I have been wondering if I can contribute to DD-WRT by porting DDWRT to these routers.
I am a software engineer with good experience in C/C++ but little to no experience in Kernel programming.
I am curious to know if i can help with porting DDWRT to these routers. I am sure these are not powerful routers and may have poor hardware.
What are the requirements for a router to be able to support DDWRT?
Are there some resources i can refer to to get started?
How can i help with a router that hasn't been worked on yet?
This sounds like a daunting task, but something i really want to do!
Any help, highly appreciated!
