I just bought the EA7500V3 router. Is it supported by OpenWRT? If so, which firmware should I use?
v3 is too new and even doesn't have page in Wiki about it's hardware.
CPU:MT7629BA RAM:256M ROM:128M
Brand Name: LINKSYS Model Name: EA7500 V3, EA7430, EA7250, EA7500S
As I understand it, MT7629 is a
single chipsolution that offers about the same power consumption and performance compared to a solution based on MT7615S and MT7615B WiFi PCIe chips plus MT7621 MIPS processor, but at a lower cost.
Any chance that EA7500v3 will be supported sometime in the near future? (https://openwrt.org/inbox/toh/linksys/ea7500_v3)
On paper it looks rather good and today there is a deal on amazon for 37eur.
I need it basically for a wireguard gateway...
Edit: post was made in a new thread that got merged here. Question still stands, especially now that @shep linked an article that says mtk chip is targeting linux.
It would be great if someone can built a firmware.
I'd also like a FW for the EA7430 hardware
I also need OpenWRT on my EA7500 v3. Will it be possible?
