Thanks, Jaromil.

It appears that there are a few different issues going on.

It looks like you're trying to compile FreeWRT, not LibreWRT. Our project
is located at

Even if you turn your attention to LibreWRT, it looks like the device
you're referring to requires proprietary software for full functionality.
As a matter of policy [1] we can't support that device. Please see our
website for more more information on devices that are supported at

Perhaps it's time to consider replacing your hardware with something more
freedom respecting? :) There are some people that are looking at the
TP-Link TL-WR1043ND. The initial review of that device appears to indicate
that it's a good candidate for a 100% free system and will likely be the
first WiFi router that is officially supported.

We absolutely intend for this to be usable by anyone, and do plan to offer
precompiled images for people to "just flash and reboot" at some future
