Unofficial TRENDnet AC2600 (TEW-827DRU v1.0R)

New build for v22.03.0 is up.

Still no DSA for ipq806x. No full config reset needed.

I tested almost nothing. I upgraded a system, ssh'd in, wireless was working, looked at the logread briefly, and that's it. It looks like it upgraded okay without the need for full wipe, then I downgraded and restored my previous configs. Install at your own peril.

v22.03 is missing a bunch of important packages for my systems so I'm not upgrading my fleet yet. glib2 is breaking a ton of stuff.

New patch set is v19. I was expecting a bunch of changes but there was very little. Just stuff moved around.

Thank you jmomo. You're awesome.

mister! thanks again for giving openwrt to my great router. I was able to update but Transmission is not working, apparently it is something that exceeds your compilation. I hope it is solved. Hug

Transmission not Working

Yes, 22.03 broke a lot of packages. That's why I am staying on 21.02 for awhile until some of these things get fixed.

How can i help You to finish making support with official openwrt build?

OpenWRT/LEDE Project leaders previously rejected all of my patches and I didn't see any situation where it was possible to get them merged so I gave up trying. If someone else wants to take my work and move on with it, you are welcome to do so.

Hey @jmomo
Thanks for preparing images for TEW-827DRU.
I am wondering whether you could make one time build with addition of NSS from Ipq806x NSS build (Netgear R7800 / TP-Link C2600 / Linksys EA8500)?
Few guys already asked author of above images to build extra target, but so far no luck.

OpenWrt 22.03.3 was released today. It may be a couple of weeks before I can do a build, due to heavy work and personal obligations I have right now.


Thanks for the update, hope you’re doing well.

New build 22.03.3 is out:

I have not tested this. Report back if you have any install problems.


New builds are out. I did both a v21.02 and v22.03 so be sure to grab the right one.

I have not tested these. Please report any problems if you find them.

Due to a busy schedule, I may not be able to produce new builds for the latest release any time soon. It might be 6-12 weeks from now. I'm not sure. Eventually I will get around to it.

Thanks jmomo! I'll give it a try, what about v22 is it stable?

Using v22 for a while, everything is fine but docker

what about v22 is it stable?

In a word, yes.

It's going to be as stable as all other ipq806x devices. The code that is specific to this hardware doesn't affect stability or performance compared to other models.

The one thing that is unique about this device is the SLC NAND flash, which is better than most other models. It's super fast, relatively large compared to NOR devices and even other NAND devices, and it has the freespace area and second redundant system partitions which you can use for logs or something else.

I have started working on v23.05.0. It might be a few days/weeks before I am done and there are new patches and builds. I'm low on free time.
