Ask for 3G support and web interface on TL-MR3220 (and similar) on generic images

Hi, as we speak on I think it would be a good idea to include 3G support and the web interface on TL-MR3220 in generic images (and similar). Especially because being a router with 3G connection, perhaps it is the only connection available to update the packages. On the other hand, the 3G support and LUCI interface, together, in the last r30857 not occupy too much space (3.1 MiB). I enclose the configuration file I'm using to compile, but I could detail it if it is better. Regards.

LOL, that wasn't the argument we disused.

There isn't a valid argument for LuCI in trunk, that's Backfire terrain.

3G routers may fail at

opkg update

As in order to add 3G support, such packages should be downloaded, and in order to download something 3G support is required: The egg and the kitchen.

In the other hand, there are 3G router buyers that doesn't require 3G, so the request points to a new 3G profile for such 3G routers: TL-MR11U, TL-MR3020, TL-MR3220, TL-MR3420, TL-WR703N, and why not, TL-WR1043ND and all others USB enabled routers.

Replacing the default vanilla profile depends on size of 3G stuff, likely invalid, too.

Hi, oops, maybe I understand another think :). In this case, I can offer a limited-testing fork with my config for a year (domain is update this days). A say "limited" because I only can be sure update once a month (due to limited internet at home, same reason for not include more packages). If no, no problem, in a month it's out from wiki (links are now on some spanish forums and maybe remove soon it is not a good idea). Regards.

Hi, after testing a few weeks, I think I will be impossible to maintain a minimum fork (my current internet connection does not go far). However, I hope that this ticket was not the cause of which has stopped the generation of snapshots on ar7xx, which I saw had not been updated since March 14. Regards.
