Add support for ASUS RT-AX89X AX6000

would really good add support for this asus router, it have a sfp+ and a 10gbit eth

What is the core SOC and the Sfp and 10gb chipsets?

Asus marketing crud is not useful

Well there are no currently supported devices with the IPQ8078 SOC and none with QCN5054 wireless.

If support does come it is unlikely to be soon - unless some brave soul buys one and does the SOC porting themselves.

Should all be quite reasonable to get working, but someone with the hardware on their desk will have to do the porting work - fortunately ipq807x is now officially supported in OpenWrt.

Always wanted to get one of these as its only one with SFP, but its just so damn expensive.

that would be a great router for me, as soon as its supported by openwrt :slight_smile:

This is nice device but without 6e radios are kinda yesterday's , till end of the year maybe we will see some nice devices with wifi 7.

Given that we don't have a single device with 6 GHz radios supported by OpenWrt, yet (yes, there are candidates that might be supportable rather easily for ipq807x and filogic 830, but none of them actually are - and they are firmly in the mid- to upper 3 figure price range), I wouldn't be that optimistic about 802.11be and its time frame. In terms of practical throughput, 6 GHz won't give you much at this point either, unless you're in a very congested environment.

I've some spare fujitsu s920 4*2.4GHz thin client with intel x520 10gig card and now i'm waiting for qcn765 wifi card to play with 6GHz band, maybe this will work nicely , i'll make some test when i get this wifi card.When i make some tests with mt7916 card , the performance was quite nice but those tiny pigtails for antennas are poor and i've ordered some nicer m.2 to mini pcie adapter with normal ufl connectors.

i dont need wifi at all, i have a external AP, but the sfp+ and 10gbit rj45 is great. the only other router that i know and fits my needs is the r86s, but its x86 which i dont like
wondering whats current state of openwrt on this device. does it boot?

What are you talking about R86S?
