Build openwrt for netgear R6800


#1

Is there anyone ever built openwrt for netgear R6800?

CPU: MediaTek MT7621AT (880 MHz, 2 cores)
NAND Flash: 128 MiB (Macronix MX30UF1G18AC-TI)
RAM: 256 MiB (Nanya NT5CC128M16IP-DI)
USBs: USB 3.0, USB 2.0
Wireless Chips : 5G MediaTek MT7615N ( an+ac , 4x4:3), 2.4G MediaTek MT7615N ( bgn, 4x4:3)
Switch: MediaTek MT7621AT

Device details are from https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Netgear_R6800

There is no driver support for MT7615N yet (nor to be expected soon), the rest should be reasonably easy to port.

Got it, thanks @slh


#4

This device got interesting again since there now is MT7615 support in the mt76 (fork). Just a heads up.


#5

Does anyone know how far the 7615 family is from working with openwrt then? (Dlink dir-882, netgear R6800 etc)


#6

There's no board support, for that people would need to share stuff like stock firmware boot logs and flash layout. Afaict that hasn't been done for any of these devices (DIR-878 has my interest, but I don't have it myself).

I'm interested In the DIR-882 or 878 as well, would it help to buy one and try connecting serial and give a dump of the flash layout?


#8

It sure would :slight_smile:
