Java Firmware

Hello forums this is my first post here

im having an old adsl modem ZYXEL Prestige 660R

i want to changet he is using openwrt.but i have an inclination that incase i change the firmware then i will be no longer be left with the default user menu of the modem but i will have to perforce use openwrt menu

are their any suggestions/tutorials to solve my problem?

I'm not quite sure what your question is. I can't even tell whether you have OpenWRT or just want it.

i have been using these firmware for quite sometime now..

I am using openwrt.I need to add some features provided by openwrt but not by the vendor of the router.

For that i need to compile my own firmaware. Hence prepare my own image file so that I can use it to update more than one modems

The only hitch is that once i log into I am presented with a user interface to configure my modem. Incase i compile my own firmware this interface will change to openwrt terminal driven interface.

I want to maintain the same interface and customise my own firmware.Smilie

So, you want to reformat yet keep everything exactly the same. Sorry, doesn't work like that; the image file contains nearly everything except nvram, so replacing it replaces the interface too.

Do you really need to re-image it, though? What features are you missing, that you'd get?

i want to use it in a mesh topology which as of now it is not working

incase i go in for off the shelf then those routers are going to be heavy on my pocket..but using openwrt and little time I can do that

???? But...!
I am using openwrt.
I think you're using the wrong tense and confusing everyone. You will use OpenWRT but don't have it yet. Yes/no?

If you want OpenWRT and a web interface, Web interface for OpenWrt and more - might be right up your alley.

ok now i am clarifying

i have open-wrt/dd-wrt/tomato

i can use them to make my own image


the exact problem is what i wrote that i will loose the default interface of the vendor


the forum is aware of any modems in which the entire nvram is also open source I am open for suggestions

PS: thanx for the link Corona
