Widy is a portable 3G modem/wireless router that has been modified to run OpenWRT, a *nix variant.

Installing OpenWRT

This is a step-by-step procedure to overwriting the default firmware that comes with the TP-Link 3040 and replacing it with OpenWrt on a thumb drive.


Post-Installation Procedure

The post-installation procedure consists of getting the Widy ready to be operational - installing software, creating keys, cleaning up, copying scripts, etc.



The Widy configuration page covers the configuration of the UCI (unified configuration interface), the Widy config files, and how to configure various actions to be performed based on the setting of the slider switch on the router.

A great guide to this modem on the OpenWrt router wiki:

Similar in spirit is this:

  • Pen-testing drop box
  • Must be small and inexpensive
  • Must be OpenWRT supported
  • Must have wired and wireless interfaces
  • Must have space for a USB drive
  • Must be battery powered
  • Must be capable of all of that without soldering
