Yo guys, I love the ideology and collaboration on projects like these. I desperately wish I was more computer literate. I've been trying for weeks now (literally) to get LibreCMC working/connected to the internet. The 'guides' (if you can call them that) and information surrounding actually setting up LibreCMC is not only minimal, but only for proficient and tech savvy people.... Its incredibly frustrating for me. I purchased a netgear WNDR3800 'pre-configured' with LibreCMC on eBay. I guess that's not a good idea for security reasons etc however there is no way I would know how to 'build' or 'compile' it from source.... I can log into'luci' and see the settings etc but I don't understand how I can get the internet settings from my ISP (pppoe) configured/setup on librecmc. Can anyone please help? I was told a 2nd option would be to put my ISP's router in 'bridge' mode and connect the 2nd router (librecmc) to it.... Gah. I'm so lost and my ISP didn't know how to help either, I wish there were some more complete/detailed guides up... Please help if you can, thanks

Almost all documentation for OpenWrt applies to LibreCMC. LibreCMC is a fork of OpenWrt.

The OpenWrt wiki is good resource. Look into it.

If you ISP router supports bridge mode that's the most straightforward option. Enable it in the ISP router, connect your WNDR3800 WAN port to the bridge mode port in the ISP router and it should work.

When I initially started learning, that was really sort of the foundation of it all; it was just like, okay, people are going to tell you how you need to do slope game.
