I'm looking for an openwrt compatible device with wifi 6/6e to build a prototype on. It looks like the BPI-R3 is finally showing up to purchase.
I'm seeing "openwrt 21.02" listed in the docs on these, but I can't find them in the HCL or forums here.
Is this a viable openwrt platform?
Showing up where? I can't see any for sale yet
amazon and alibaba. banana pi said 2-3 weeks for general availability.
Does openwrt support 6ghz channels?
I just got BPI-R3 board and build firmware image from https://git.openwrt.org/openwrt/openwrt.git
But, I can not do sysupgrade via web page with openwrt-mediatek-filogic-bananapi_bpi-r3-squashfs-sysupgrade.itb
Any suggestions? Thanks.
Use AUC for upgrading. Sysupgrading fails often on other platforms also, while AUC lately works fine.
If anyone is wonder what
auc is, it is an OpenWrt package that "performs the same process as the
luci-app-attendedsysupgrade from SSH/the command line."
Details here: Upgrade using Attended Sysupgrade: From the CLI (Scroll down to 'From the CLI')
