Why should I use the firmware here and is it guaranteed to work or money refunded?
The firmware on this site are tested intensively and repeatably to ensure that it can be flashed from the manufacturer's firmware to the Openwrt firmware and vice versa. You have simply zero chance of bricking damaging your device.
If it so, why do we not offer refund if the firmware cannot be activated for use?
Because, if we do so some people will abuse this policy and asking for refund even the firmware has been activated and they claimed it failed and this is the very grey area of dispute. Simply to avoid this situation, you can try out the free area or kindly look elsewhere for the Openwrt firmware if you do not agree to our "No refund Policy".

Does EasyWRT develop the Openwrt firmwares?
No, we do not write or develop the Openwrt firmware. Openwrt firmware is possible because of the hard work of their accredited authors and many contributors, and we do not take credit for it. We merely write some html codes to faciliate the ease of configuration at the request of our customers and repeatably test the firmware over and over, to ensure it is totally error free before releasing it on our website.
Why is there only Engenius Openwrt firmware on this site?
Our company started as a software integrator, aiding customer to customize their ERP solution on UNIX based machines. We enhance user interface so that new employees can quickly adapt to using the ERP through wizards and the quick buttons.
We were approached by our then now 'customer' with a challenge to create a easy user interface to configure engenius router running on a UNIX based operating system. Most wireless routers require a wired Ethernet connection from a computer or laptop to the device and some changing of the the local IP address of the computer or laptop before it can communicate with the device and this was troublesome with people without IT knowledge. We took up the challenge and created the webased EZ solution for engenius running on Openwrt, where ethernet cables are never required ( except for powering up some devices :P ) for configuration and an enhanced wizard interface to assist layman to easily configure their engenius devices.
Once, we are completed with engenius project, we will look further into the brands with also such similarities, such as Edimax, Zyxel.. etc. If you need a customized web based user interface of any brand of wireless router, do let try us out!
