System Log Question - Switching to Tx

Newbie warning...

Hey there!

I've recently purchased a TRENDnet TEW-829DRU. While the UserGuide has its benefits and answers, I have other questions. I noticed that the UserGuide noted the use of OpenWrt. So I thought I'd ask here.

I've noticed reoccurring entries in the System Log, see below.

My main question is... Is this a problem?

The router seems to working fine. I have dual WAN services coming in, link tracking enabled on both, WAN1 failover to WAN2.

I've looked up and read some mwan3 package details, but I didn't see anything that helped me immediately.

Any help / guidance would be appreciated,

The TRENDnet TEW-829DRU is not supported by OpenWrt yet (it shouldn't be too difficult to port it to OpenWrt, but that hasn't been done so far), so you can't be running OpenWrt on this device. While many OEMs use a vendor SDK loosely based on a (typically ancient-) version of OpenWrt, they do replace crucial parts of it with (semi-)proprietary code (at least kernel, wireless drivers, webinterface, etc.), the result has rather little in common with OpenWrt anymore.

Please contact the vendor for support about their OEM firmware, we can't help you.

Ah. That actually explains a lot. Thanks so much!
