my dear friends and developers. I read the information on the main page, that my device does not support Openwrt with the 5Ghz function. How relevant is this information at the moment? What are the perspective? How long do you think drivers will have to wait for 5Ghz? Does it make sense to flash my device today?
It now does support. For a while 5Ghz was not supported in TP-Link Archer C20, but then the issues in MT76 drivers have been fixed and it works fine.
I think the issue is that the wiki is not always updated so frequently and not always correspond to what really is.
2 posts were split to a new topic: Archer C20 bricked
How Can I enable 5Ghz and run it?
Archer C20 V4
Use snapshot version. Compile (Openwrt wiki maybe help) or download an pre-compiled version in download page.
Would you send me the direct link please?! appreciate it
You meant that download and update router from this link
then download it http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/targets/ramips/mt76x8/openwrt-ramips-mt76x8-tplink_archer-c20-v4-squashfs-tftp-recovery.bin
Weird what happened... I flashed the last version of Openwrt on my Archer C20 V4. Works fine on 2.4ghz on WDS. But the 5ghz band does not work. It sees it when scanning, connects to it. But is not able to repeat it. My modem-gateway transmits in bands 2 and 4, no DFS.
