A number of ISPs have broadband packages that include a free Technicolor router. Supporting these routers could potentially benefit many users. Technicolor routers have firmware based on OpenWrt, so it's probably relatively easy to support these routers. I've raised a feature request here https://bugs.openwrt.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=3377
In the link below, it mentions that
Technicolor was even listed as an OpenWRT "gold sponsor"
I assume OpenWrt could get some help from Technicolor with porting? I think Technicolor would also benefit from having their hardware supported by upstream.
I can help with testing DWA0120 and TG589 VAC v2
