ROOter - Of Modems and Men

ROOter GoldenOrb

If you’re finding this page from a link at ROOter GoldenOrb’s home page, it may be because we’ve offered to help host system images! Most of my home network out in the boonies has run off of dairyman’s ROOter fork of OpenWRT since 2017. Just in case Google has accidentally sent you in the wrong direction, you can find more information about ROOter at the home page link above, as well as:

  • The ROOter Forum Thread at, where ROOter originally started. Yes, it really is one 860 page thread at current writing – but it’s also where the developers and most experienced users hang out, and a great place to get started.
  • The uploads directory, now hosted here. These are interim releases and test builds created by dairyman (a.k.a. DM) for testing new features, supporting new equipment, and general upgrades between full GoldenOrb releases.
  • The builds directory, also now hosted here. This folder will contain the most recent uploaded copies of DM’s build environment for ROOter.

As always, if you have questions about ROOter, I definitely recommend checking out the home page above, or the forum!
