>Typically, frequency can be raised with substantial gains in read speed.

I can increase if required.
Not sure how fast is reasonable/required?

At this stage I would rather not set up an oscilloscope
to experiment with how fast I can push it?

Datasheet of flash ic is 80MHz or so?
Not sure how fast the mt7628an can go?

It appears I need this line for the ethernet, otherwise random mac address is created.

>Despite, can you please check whether there are addresses in factory 0x28, 0x2e, 0xe000, 0xe006, 0x4, 0x8004?
>Which addresses are assigned on OEM firmware (lan, wan, 2g, 5g)?

You would like me to flash the OEM firmware, look at MAC addresses?
All the devices I have on hand are flashed to openwrt.
I can flash latest factory firmware?

I have it set up to be same mac address on wired and wlan.
It is the same one that is written on the device sticker.
The bootloader uses that mac address on the lan hardware.

>> ucidef_set_led_wlan "wlan2g" "WiFi 2.4GHz" "$boardname:green:wlan2g" "phy0tpt"
>Please use a DTS trigger instead (for both 2g and 5g).

I don't understand.  R6120 lines look similar?
Do I need to remove the 2g/5g lines?
I tried to search for some documentation. I found [1], [2] ?

>The old PR has been closed quite some time ago due to inactivity. If there is new progress now, it would be fine to just open a new PR by the "new author".

Is patch via email acceptable?
I would need to create github account, and do pull request there?

I'm assuming keeping the same thread at this stage is the best way forward?
I understand the subject should have been something like
"Subject: [PATCH] ramips: add support for netgear r6020"
