Hi all,

Does anyone here have a Linksys WRT1900AC (that fiasco that suppose to 
be the new generation of WRT54G) ?

I got one a while ago and have been following the firmware development 
for it directly with Belkin people and on the URL - 
https://github.com/wrt1900ac/opensource/tree/master/Barrier-Breaker but 
that showed to be a total failure as they completely abandoned the 
project (GitHub latest update is 6 months old and they don' reply to 
emails anymore).

Many here might have seen all discussions around the subject during the 
initial phase of development especially regarding the open-source 
firmware of their wireless driver, which so far (as far as I know) 
is/was still a binary.

I have been however looking into the OpenWRT Snapshot and can see the 
"mvebu" folder with similar files than Linksys GitHub - 
Plus with the information on the wiki - 
http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/linksys/wrt1900ac that the wireless driver 
has been finally released and the issue 'seems' to be resolved I guess.

Can anyone confirm this one downloaded from OpenWRT works for WRT1900AC 
compared to any of the 3 mentioned on the wiki ?
