TP-Link TL-WR902AC & 5GHz


#1

Hi folks!
I'm new to OpenWRT (though I've used alternate firmwares in the past) and have not yet read through all the documentation or gotten started with an installation. I saw on the compatibility grid that my newly purchased TP-Link TL-WR902AC very is supported but that the 5ghz band isn't supported or is non-functional as of the most recent image version 18.06.01. Is that still the case or will it be fixed in an upcoming release?

Thank you,
Raymond

It depends on the hardware revsion, v1 should just work - in case of v3, there is no driver for the 5 GHz wlan (nor much hope for this to change anytime soon).


#3

Yeah, it's version 3. Proprietary/closed source binaries are the culprit I assume?


#4

Has something changed in this topic? Any chance to support 5ghz?

I can’t find the commit, but I thought I spotted the chip was supported in mt76 (although still early support)
