TP-Link EAP 245 v3 donation

Hi all,

I know that TP-Link EAP 245 v3 has a strange Wi-Fi setup that limits 5GHz to 40MHz channels. I'd like to donate a device to a dev, although I don't have a spare PoE injector. It needs standard 802.3af or 48v fixed. OpenWRT is already installed. I'm based in Europe (Germany) so would prefer not to have to ship internationally :slight_smile:

@svanheule ?

Donate a device to work on the ath10k driver, I assume? At least for me, there isn't much I can do about the state of the ath10k(-ct) driver. I just ported the device.

I'm not sure how much development is still going into the ath10k(-ct) driver, but I think those are the people you should be getting interested.

Ok, I'll ping them, thanks.

On another note, I also have a Arcadyan VGV7510KW22 (o2 Box 6431) lying around here which is a Lantiq/XRX200 device like the ones currently needing fixes for 23.05. Is that of use to anybody? OpenWRT should already be installed.

I'm sure support for an extra Lantiq device would make members still using *DSL happy,
but I don't know who's been working on the platform in the past.... :frowning:

Check the threads when some peeps were getting the Fritzbox 7530 to work. Some impressive work there. @blocktrron @numero53 @andyboeh @sch-m @daniel @blogic @moeller0

ADSL implemented - only hurdle now is licensing for the ADSL firmware bundling. Otherwise it's all go.

The 7530 is not based on the lantiq platform, but is an instance of ipq40XX (quad core Arm A7). The DSL part is VRX518 IIRC not XRX200 and while it seems to work quite well for VDSL2 (up to and including profile 35b) it is not clear whether this works properly for ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+.
Also, I am just a happy user of that code, and did not contribute to the effort... (due to lack of capability).

I did none of the important development either, just some porting work for other devices.
