Hope to see ACRH17 supported by LEDE.

Until some developer has got his hand on it I doubt you will see it supported

I try the lede, but flash does not recognize
need help!

What firmware file did you use to flash?

There is no support for the ASUS RT-ACRH17

Yea, don't get your hopes up. ASUS repeated the choices they made for the RT-AC58U / RT-ACRH13. So yeah, adding OpenWRT/LEDE is easily possible but not wanted.

Can you explain the issue since hardware looks pretty good

Look in the RT-AC58U thread here on the forum.

I get the ACRH17 work for now, but... something not working.

  1. LAN port WAN port work.
  2. LAN LEDs work
  3. 2.4G wifi work
  4. 5G not working

Your best bet is to ask around the ath10k-devel / linux-wireless mailing-list.

ok. I am trying.

for now I get everything work fine except wifi 5G.

it is somthing related to the QCA9984 chip

I notice that the firmware or board data in ath10k-firmware-qca9984 is for PCIE interface

but this device is not PCIE

Is this the problem?

ath10k_ahb is now not supporting qca9984?

for now, everything is working. great!

Hi everyone. I've discovered that there are at least two OpenWrt forks with RT-ACRH17 support.

Is there any chance adding official support of this board into original OpenWrt project like it was with RT-AC58U board?

In fact these two boards are quite similar with hardware.

Would be great having an official support and being able to install packages and kmods from original OpenWrt repositories.

you can try this..

Please give my PR a spin:

You need to follow a very similar process to the original/easy '13 install:

You don't need to wire up to the serial port this way.

Thanks roysjosh!

Any performance or feature downsides to using this instead of the stock firmware?

I recall something about some binary blobs (acceleration of something) which may not be present in OpenWRT. But I don't remember if it's relevant in this case.
