Support for Cisco MR32

Hello all,

Could anyone confirm that the Cisco MR32 will never be supported by OpenWrt ?

Actually, i have a MR32 with licence expired and no one wants to buy it, same issue for my MX80 and the MS220-8P i will trow them away soon.



For someone with more knowledge of Broadcom wireless chips and their open-source drivers than I to answer more conclusively, lists the wireless chips as

  • WI1 chip1: Broadcom BCM43520
  • WI2 chip1: Broadcom BCM43520
  • WI2 chip2: Broadcom BCM43428

HI Jeff

I got Meraki MR32 which I am not able to load OpenWrt on it.

I have got USB to TTL cable but on the main board it doesn't tell you how it is connected.
And steps on how to download it on the unit.

My email is


Since there is no OpenWrt image for the MR32 available: Which OpenWrt firmware image do you want to flash on the MR32?

I just want to disable the Cisco license so I can use this without buying


If you or someone else ports OpenWrt for the device, then you can replace the firmware with OpenWrt.

Nobody here can help you disable the Cisco licensing for the firmware for the device.

Any progress on this project guys?
