I just looked up the Router database and ordered a TP-Link Archer C6 to install OpenWRT and setup VPN on it. However, I have received version 3.2 from the seller and not v2 which has support as per the database.
The key difference being that v3.2 has a different chipset (MediaTek7621DAT) and not Broadcom!
Now I would have even tried to install the C5 or any other OpenWRT version that supports MediaTek but I even the Stock Firmware is not available anywhere for download (just in case things go wrong & I brick it)
Here is what I am looking for:
- Is there any other version / router firmware that i can try on this router?
- Is there a likelihood for this to be supported in future (so i wait instead of messing around with the router)
- Can someone share the link to stock firmware so that if i try I can at least go back (unless I totally brick it for good!)
- If someone has gone through this drill and has any experience to share, pls do.
