New wAP AC (RBwAPG-5HacD2HnD)

Afaik the new wAP AC (RBwAPG-5HacD2HnD) has similar specs to the cAP AC model (except that it does not have visible LEDs, it can also be powered via DC jack and it has an IP54 protection), for FCCID see.

reading the cAP AC support thread I tried a build for hAP ac2 from here . Everything worked fine, including 2.4 and 5.0 GHz wifi

the future official supported builds for the cAP AC should also work for the new wAP AC

Can you paste a dmesg log? I'm interested in this device as well. Does one need serial to install OpenWrt?

I already included it in the device page: https://openwrt.org/toh/mikrotik/wap_ac_rbwapg-5hacd2hnd#openwrt_bootlog

The wAP R ac (RBwAPGR-5HacD2HnD) seems to be identical to the new wAP ac, except the miniPCIe-Header is populated (plus SIM slot, LTE antennas, miniPCIe shielding/cooling plate, LTE LED next to PWR & USR). But the board looks the same and is also marked “wAPGR 5HacD2HnD © routerboard.com”. FCC ID is also TV7WAPGR5AC2D. I bought my devices in March 2020.

I’m not sure this warrants a new wiki page, but I can provide photos and missing information.

cool, that's nice, in my opinion a separate entry should be made. Maybe @tmomas can confirm what the usual procedure is.

Yep, separate page please.
