FAQ faq
  • Pages in docs namespace → Create manual overview pages linking to certain topics
  • Pages in toh:hwdata namespace → hardware data already present in dataentries, no need for tagging
  • See Tags
  • Do not create arbitrary new tags, use the existing ones instead, in order to keep the number of different tags low. See All tags used in this wiki which ones are prefered.
  • OEM / Manufacturer names of devices, e.g. Asus, Xiaomi, ... → devicepages are already in appropriate namespaces, no need for tagging
  • Model names, e.g. RT-AC58U. Devices are easily accessible via the wiki search or the ToH. Use wiki internal links where appropriate.

First tag will be the more relevant:

  1. Target, eg: mvebu, bcm63xx, ramips...
  2. SoC or subtarget: armada385, bcm63268, rt3052...
  3. Flash size: 512nand, 32flash, 8flash ...
  4. Mem size: 512ram, 64ram, 32ram...
  5. # Eth Ports: 1port, 2port, 3port, ...
  6. Eth speed: FastEthernet, GigabitEthernet
  7. All other tags


At the end of each wiki page about a device, we should add the appropriate tags.
Simply add the tags space separated like this: {{tag>8flash 64ram USB2.0 1NIC 2WNIC 4port}}

CPU Cores







Ethernet-Standard of SoC and Switch

Internal switch

:!: 8, 16, 32, 64RAM → too little for up to date OpenWrt, see 4/32 warning and 8/64 warning for details.

Tags for reference designs of chip manufacturers may be used for fast and easy comparisons: ,

  • = Even though it is possible to build heavily stripped down OpenWrt-image, devices with only 2MB of flash memory will not be officially supported in OpenWrt!
  • = Support for target ubicom32 was removed in r34430, r34431, r34432: “This target is unused, does not support any off the shelf hardware and has been a maintenance burden for quite some time now.”
  • = Currently not supported by OpenWrt, no prebuilt images for downloading available.

We could add tags to wiki articles, too. For example all articles which are being linked to from this page usb.overview, could contain the tag . Other Tags could be bootloader.

Don't tag wiki articles, create Overview / Collection pages instead. The wiki search can result in a direct link while you are typing, which does not work for tags.

You can search for devices with special tags in different ways:
