Append those lines to /etc/firewall.user.
enable_transparent_tor() {
ifname=br-lan
# Allow direct access to the Tor daemon
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i $ifname -p tcp --dport 9050 -j ACCEPT
# provide transparent routing for TCP and DNS
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i $ifname -p udp --dport 53 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 9053
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i $ifname -p tcp --syn -j REDIRECT --to-ports 9040
}
enable_transparent_tor

Start Tor

We have to edit Tor init script, /etc/init.d/tor to successfully start tor at every boot. Add those lines before procd_open_instance.
lan_ip=$(uci get network.lan.ipaddr)
[ -n "$lan_ip" ] && sed -i "s/192.168\..*\..*:/$lan_ip:/g" /etc/tor/torrc
All things done. Let’s start tor.
/etc/init.d/tor restart

Verify tor

Visti check.torproject.org to see if you are in tor network. Please note, when you are using tor, the router’s UI is not accessible as well. But you can ssh to the router.
