Running WiFi on padavan


As a wifi authentication plug-in, the analysis of source code in online materials can be said to be countless.
In terms of compilation, it prefers OpenWtr firmware. For me who use padavan firmware, if I want to use WiFi, I have to find my own way and use cross compilation to complete the task of compiling WiFi.
Although there is a version compiled by H.A. on the Internet, there are too many firmware plug-ins compiled by H.A. for me, so the padavan I have been using is a pure version compiled by myself without any plug-ins


  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
  • padavan tool chain


  • First, padavan tool chain is ready

    After installing the dependencies required to compile padavan, execute the following two commands in sequence

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install unzip libtool-bin curl cmake gperf gawk flex bison nano fakeroot cpio git python-docutils gettext automake autopoint texinfo build-essential help2man pkg-config zlib1g-dev libgmp3-dev libmpc-dev libmpfr-dev libncurses5-dev libltdl-dev wget module-init-tools

    Then use git to download padavan source code

    git clone --depth=1 /opt/rt-n56u

    Compile the tool chain and execute three commands in sequence. It takes some time

    cd /opt/rt-n56u/toolchain-mipsel

    If you have better scientific Internet access, you can also download the precompiled tool chain using scripts without compiling the tool chain yourself (after all, it takes a long time)

  • Compile WiFi

    Using git to clone source code

    git clone wifidog

    Start compiling and execute the following commands in sequence

    cd wifidog
    ./configure CC=/opt/rt-n56u/toolchain-mipsel/toolchain-3.4.x/bin/mipsel-linux-uclibc-gcc CXX=/opt/rt-n56u/toolchain-mipsel/toolchain-3.4.x/bin/mipsel-linux-uclibc-g++ LD=/opt/rt-n56u/toolchain-mipsel/toolchain-3.4.x/bin/mipsel-linux-uclibc-ld RANLIB=/opt/rt-n56u/toolchain-mipsel/toolchain-3.4.x/bin/mipsel-linux-uclibc-ranlib AR=/opt/rt-n56u/toolchain-mipsel/toolchain-3.4.x/bin/mipsel-linux-uclibc-ar --build=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu --host=mipsel-unknown-linux-gnu --target=mipsel-unknown-linux-gnu --prefix=/home/wifidog_install/
    sudo make install

    After a while, the compiled output file is displayed in /home/wifi_ In the install/ directory, the executable file is in the bin directory.
    I put WiFi into the firmware by unpacking the firmware (because I won't directly pack it into the firmware, I will learn it next time)
    After swiping into the router, you can run the authentication service by executing WiFi through ssh
