Router Model TPLINK TL-WDR4300 v1
Firmware Version DD-WRT v24-sp2 (03/25/13) std - build 21061
Kernel Version Linux 3.5.7 #6134 Mon Mar 25 07:09:54 CET 2013 mips

everything works for few years now. originally installed DD-WRT just to share my Wi-Fi Internet to LAN Ethernet as I prefer cables much more, thank you very much. Wink ..currently the configuration is a bit different, but still.. everything just works.

PROBLEM with com CLI (connected with PuTTY):

curl
..gives me:
-sh: curl: not found

ls /opt
..returns nothing (is curl "supposed to be" in that path?)

ipkg install libcurl
..gives me multiple lines similar to:
ERROR: File not found: //usr/local/lib/ipkg/lists/whiterussian
You probably want to run `ipkg update'

ipkg update
..returns nothing

HELP? (I do have some decent basic idea about Linux / CLI and I did quite a bit of googling..) Neutral

BrainSlayer has removed a lot of features/packages to help save on space in favor of recent Q.O.S. code updates. 4mb and 8mb flash size routers were hit the hardest, but even on larger flash routers things are gone too. It's likely this package got removed to help save on space.

curl is available via (opkg) entware...ipkg is outdated
install Entware first than:

opkg install curl
