Is anyone using/working on this router so far ? There has been a lot of
discussion on the list in the past about it as the promised successor of
I got one of these a while ago and since them I have been in contact
several times with some people Linksys/Belkin team who was responsible
for the Product including an ex Product Director (and which apparently
has left the company afterwards).
After much discussion in the OpenWRT-Devel list they have committed
repair all the major mess they have done around the product release
promising it would support OpenWRT but in fact it never did properly.
Sometime later they have set this GitHub below where they have been
doing some development and they also have done some contribution to
Their contributions were criticized by different people and they
promised to fix it, along with opening the source of the wireless driver
which at the moment is still a binary unfortunately.
Also there are fundamental issues with their version available at GitHub
where both 2.4 and 5 Ghz frequencies disconnects under some significant
traffic and information dos now show up correctly in the WebUI.
I have tried to contact them several times to ask about the status, as
in the GitHub it shows the last update more than 3 months old. They have
replied to some emails, saying every time someone else was working on
the project, showing again a total mess to handle things. Ultimately
they have been ignoring any emails and don't seem very concerned about
the product itself.
Does anyone have the a different view of me or any have information I'm
not aware about about the development of OpenWRT for this product ?
