    88You are not comfortable with linux and don't know how to do all this compiling stuff. 
    99 
    10 You can use an OpenWRT and !WiFiDog compiled by someone else.  They MUST be compiled for your specific version of OpenWRT. 
     10You can use an OpenWRT and !WiFiDog compiled by someone else.  They MUST be compiled for your specific version of OpenWRT.  Note that the .ipk packages on sourceforge, or ones you built from source yourself are the only packages we will support.  If you use package distributed by another organization, you will have to ask them for support.

    12 !IleSansFil makes it's own pair of OpenWRT images and !WiFiDog .ipk compiled files available to the public: 
    13  * You can download a pre-compiled OpenWRT firmware image [http://downloads.openwrt.org/whiterussian/rc6/bin/ here] 
    14  * And you can download a compatible !WiFiDog .ipk file [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=102646&package_id=110081 here] 
    15  
    16 Note that the packages on sourceforge are the only one we will support.  If you use package distributed by another organisation, you will have to asssk them for support.

    18 Look in the [http://www.openwrt.org/ OpenWRT] site for instructions on how to re-flash your router with the firmware image (skip any download/building instructions). 
    19  
    20 Then follow the above installation instructions for installing the !WiFiDog .ipk file into the OpenWRT-flashed router. 
     12 * Download a [http://downloads.openwrt.org/whiterussian/newest/default/ pre-compiled OpenWRT firmware image] 
     13 * Install the firmware image using the router's web interface.  If you need help on this, refer to the [http://wiki.openwrt.org/OpenWrtDocs/Installing installation instructions on the OpenWRT site]. 
     14 * IMPORTANT:  Make sure that clients connecting to your OpenWRT router can properly access the internet (or your private lan) through the router BEFORE you install wifidog. 
     15 * Download an [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=102646&package_id=110081 official .ipk file built by the WiFiDog project] 
     16 * Install wifidog:   (Important note: the following URL is just an example, it WILL change over time) 
     17  * ipkg install http://easynews.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/wifidog/wifidog_1.1.3_beta6-1_mipsel_whiterussianRC6.ipk 
     18 * Edit /etc/wifidog.conf and follow the instructions in the file. Things should be self-explanatory.

    2220Please note that the above saves you from the knowledge and time needed to compile and produced these binary files.  It is however no magical cure for linux illiteracy.  You need to be proficient enough in a unix environment to be able to telnet/ssh into the router and perform the outlined installation and configuration tasks.  If you do not feel comfortable doing this we advise you consult with someone who is proficient in linux and networking.
