OpenWrt support for Linksys MX8500

So, when loading FW via NVMEM it doesn't achieve a linkup when the cable is plugged in or?

Does this device use the wan_AQR_monitor.sh script?
I would really love to see what is causing this as U-Boot itself doesn't really do anything special when loading the FW, unless they heavily modified it but U-Boot is not in the GPL dump so no idea

Can we load the latest version of OpenWRT on MX8500 devices now?

Anyone rocking this device?

I am curious as to the type of throughput + stability you are getting on the 6e interface.

Do share!

Currently the port works (after toggle gpio44 via pinctrl or additional definition in mdio_pins), but after that the QCA8075 ports do not work: OpenWrt support for Linksys MX8500 - #43 by lytr
