What's your point? :slight_smile:

That is all I know

but there isn't really any indication why it wouldn't be fully supported either, both the mt7622 SOC and the mt7615n wireless are well-known by now.

Seems to work fine as far as I can tell. That being said, I've only used it as "dump AP" for now.

according to the firmware, this router seems to be already with openwrt.

you can unpack the firmware with 7z and watch inside.

I just bought one, let's see if we have a root acces and if we can use it with Orange or SFR...

As promised a few images of the PSU....

why posting the psu pictures ?? i don't get it :smile:

By the way, my A8000RU is running very well with the snapshot.
Does anyone know when it will be officialy supported ?

Today i made a speedtest and i noticed with the htop command that it was using 50% on 1 core only.
I have a 1Gbps fiber and i was able to achieve 942Mbps, which seems to be a good flow.

I installed the X-WRT snapshot from here : https://downloads.x-wrt.com/rom/
i saw they added a setting in Luci about Hardware offloading here :

When i do a speedtest, htop stay around 0% in both core :star_struck: and it goes straight to 942Mbps in a few seconds...
I conclude that there really is a hardware acceleration that is not in the OpenWRT snapshot...
I don't know if someone is working on this device here ? but would it be possible to add this feature in OpenWRT too ??

@981213
any news ? :sweat_smile:

EDIT:
@981213 thanks for answering me by email.
So basicaly the settings they added in X-WRT about Fast Forwarding and Hadware Offload are the same as those found in Firewall->Routing/NAT
so just check : Software flow offloading and Hardware flow offloading

EDIT2:
available here for 87$ i don't know about the shipping costs

80$ here

Could you do a quick writeup on howto install OpenWRT snapshot on the A8000RU?

This is a non UBI install, right? What's your opinion on the future suppport on this device?

Are you able to use the lower channels (eg. 36-48) with the 160MHz channelwidth?

How's the coverage? I assume the external antennas to give a much better signal then the Belkin's RT3200 internal antennas.

Any picture of the internals? Passively cooled I guess?

thx

Instructions are already listed here:

at this step you'll see this page :

Select the OpenWRT file and click Firmware Update.

You can use this process to go back to the original firmware at any time.

Yes ! i set my country code to FR (France) there are 2 Wifi 5Ghz AC chips
First :
Channel 36 - 64
Width 20/40/80/160Mhz
Maximum Transmit power : 23dBm at 199mW

Second :
Channel 100 - 173
Width 20/40/80/160Mhz
Maximum Transmit power : 26dBm at 398mW

2.4Ghz Wifi :
Channel 1 - 13
Width 20/40Mhz
Maximum Transmit power : 20dBm at 100mW

Coverage is excellent in my house, way better than the one provided by my ISP (which is without external antennas)

You can see some speedtest from different distances in this video :

Yes, passively cooled.

if someone is interested @F5BJR is selling 2 of these devices

Excellent info.

That video is impressive indeed even without knowing vietnamese.

So this is officially supported via the openwrt image. Nice.

What's the possible benefit of X-WRT here?

I ordered a Belkin RT3200 last week but wfif range could be much better....

And now, how to get one to Germany for cheap? :slight_smile:

I'll try to pm @F5BJR or try my luck at Darty.

Thank you very much!!

Yes I saw that post but since it was somewhat older and I was unsure if this is a UBI or non UBI I just wanted to ask..

i don't recommand you to use X-WRT, there are a ton of unknown and undocumented things runing in the background, probably optimised for chinese people to bypass the great chinese firewall. When i tried it the wifi was not working at all...

The last guy i know who bought one from Darty, it was sent from a Spain Warehouse and he received it in 2 days.

I saw for a higher price here, they ship worldwide : https://sbrik.com/en/totolink-gladiator-ac4300-router-gigabit-tri-band-wireless.html
it seems to be a spanish website

Thanks again.

Unfortunately Darty is only accepting credit cards :frowning:

I'm out of luck here since I was expecting at least PayPal.

Argh.

Hopefully @F5BJR will reply my message.

i just contacted the seller on Darty, and asked him if he is selling the router somewhere else at this price...

I would love to...

Mes cours de français à l'école remontent à très longtemps :slight_smile:

In order to contact the seller I have to have placed an order. For that I need a creditcard...

And I don't find anything on Guangzhou jiachun maoyi youxiangongsi

hmpf

This is the cheapest price I'v seen so far...
