A few ways to send message to serial port of router which flash with OpenWRT. PHP;ser2net; socat; Lua and etc.
  • PHP require to install lighttpd,lighttpd-mod-cgi,lighttpd-mod-fastcgi,php5-cgi,php5-fastcgi,libsqlite3, installation is complicated & consume resources.
  • ser2net/socat is very simple but did not support web service.
  • Lua comes as a default in openWrt and support web service. The goodies is OpenWRT using Luci for web GUI and LuCI is an embedded rapid application development framework written in Lua.

Softaculous AMPPS Web Server

I'm testing Softaculous AMPPS for my web server, by far it is working very well.
 
Web Server software that I had tested
WampServer is my first web server software, I change to EasyPHP until I replace my notebook.

EasyPHP: http://ediy.com.my/index.php/blog/item/14-easyphp-web-server-winxp
I use EasyPHP since WampServer is not working on my Toshiba notebook.
 
AppServ: http://ediy.com.my/index.php/blog/item/21-appserv-seb-server
I didn't use AppServ for my projects, because the PHP version is either too old or too new that it is not suitable for my website.

Softaculous AMPPS: http://www.ampps.com/
Finally I use AMMPS since EasyPHP did not display pictures for most of the Joomla slide extensions.

D-LINK DNS-320 Firmware Upgrade from 2.00 to 2.02

I read a post about the D-LINK DNS-320 firmware version. It shows that there is new version released from D-LINK website. So I decided to give a try.
 
Download
Make sure backup all data before firmware upgrade. After upgrade the firmware, the DNS-320 performance become very slow. I had to re-format the HDD and install software again in order to solve the problem.

OpenWRT in Client Mode

Client mode uses its wireless connection as the WAN interface, and shares the internet connection only to the LAN ports. It is not seen as an access point by laptops or other computers scanning for AP's and does not accept wireless connections from client devices.
 
As shown in figure below, the new SSID (wwan) cannot be seen by other client devices nor accept wireless connection from client devices. Therefore the client devices (Notebook3 and Notebook4) must connect to the Wifi router using network cable.
