How to Build OpenWrt from Source for TP-Link TL-WR1043ND

Note : these steps only tested on tplink tlwr1043nd v1. Check your device’s version by looking at the sticker. My build environment is ubuntu 10.04 and debian 6. It will build OpenWrt v10 (backfire)

Get the source

svn co svn://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/branches/backfire
cd backfire

get additional package

./scripts/feeds update -a
./scripts/feeds install -a


make menuconfig

----> Target System -> Atheros AR71xx/AR7240/AR913X
----> Target Profile -> TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND v1
----> Build the OpenWrt SDK (if you want to have SDK for your device)

You can choose another build option in this step


make V=99

Build Result

packages : bin/ar71xx/packages/

If you don’t wanna build openwrt by yourself, you can download the image from openwrt website:
