Hello,

i have TL-WR1043ND router with DD-WRT. I am little noob at linux and i want mining on my router. But all miners are for Broadcom. I heard somebody got it working on Atheros too. Where is true ? Architecture is ar71xx
If is it possible, can somebody pls help me with configuring it?

Thanks

No, they aren't.

Yes, it's very possible.  I'm running BFGMiner on an Atheros based TPLink 703N.  Details of setting it up are in the README.OPENWRT file on Luke-Jr's Github.

Its really pain setting up it on DD-WRT so i stopped. Can you tell me if is it stable and it doesn´t crash ? How much is OpenWrt userfriendly  (i think web GUI etc.).

Thanks

It's stable enough.  I didn't think it was difficult, a few hours did it.  I did have to run the filesystem on a USB stick, because there's very little space on the 703N after you get OpenWRT on there.

I only used the web GUI for setting stuff like the IP address.  I ran BFGMiner via SSH.
