Quick Start Guide for LEDE installation

So you want to install LEDE on one of your devices.

The following preparation is recommended, before flashing LEDE firmware:

  • Don't rush the installation, take your time. If something seems weird during installation, find answers first before continuing.
  • Have your device's precise model name at hand (so you are able to select the correct LEDE firmware)
  • Have your devices's documentation at hand, on how to flash new firmware
  • When installing and configuring LEDE on your Internet router, your Internet-access will obviously be offline for a few minutes. Please ensure that you have all required information offline or have backup Internet access at hand in this time.

If you have any questions

  • browse this (LEDE) site, especially the user-guide section.
  • feel free to ask in the LEDE Forum.
  • you can also consult the OpenWrt wiki, as LEDE is based on OpenWrt. Both projects shares most operational and installation aspects and some content has not yet been migrated.
