Interesting device -- in theory. In practice there's no official OpenWrt support, the "FriendlyWrt" sources seem to be hidden behind a few layers of obscurity and involve a weird build process, and ... it's out of stock anyway.
This is more of a "Eh, it works" than a direct endorsement, but-
I broke down and bought an MT300N-V2 to replace my missing MT300A; it's getting too hard to keep the WNDR-3800s running, despite being more capable (in my opinion). I'm sad to see the SD card bit-bang and external antenna options go away, and it doesn't really seem all that different, otherwise, despite slightly updated hardware.
It's not bad for a simple system; the wrapper around OpenWRT has a simple "Advanced" button to click through for LuCI, and although all externally built/hosted, has the majority of all packages I've come to expect.
The in-house "v3" interface is a bit crazy to those of us used to LuCI, but it's simple to setup, and rarely gets in the way. It has native support for OpenVPN and WireGuard out of the box (untested, but the MT300A I owned worked swimmingly well despite a weak CPU).
I'm having a heck of a time with it having dual guest/lan bridging and running a 6-in-4 tunnel; it keeps patching it onto the disabled guest network, and I'm not sure why- this is the only build I've had it do this to.
I've tried contacting firstname.lastname@example.org, and haven't heard back for weeks, but being that we're in an international pandemic, I don't 'really expect to.
It's nowhere near as fast as thoroughput is/was on my WNDR-3800, but in a pinch, it's a heck of a lot better than snailmail. For a $20 5v USB powered router, it's well worth throwing into the emergency kit.
Ive just setup a TP-link Archer A7 to my brother, seems like a cheap AP/router to me. I really liked that I could make a physical antenna port by myself so that he can use his old 2,4 GHz antenna Just had to buy an RP-SMA to uFL 20 cm cable and attach it to the "motherboard" and attach it to the case after using a small saw for plastic
Next time I need a cheap AP/router device I will probably buy a TP-link Archer C7 due to the fact that it is cheaper and it has 2 USB-ports
Someone else is looking for a replacement for those old and trusty tplink tl-wdr4300 tl-wdr3600 and tl-wdr3500 (this last one without gigabit ethernet ports)? For a small router, Netgear WNDR3700v4 (whenever a used unit it might be available) and TP-Link Archer C7 AC1750 seem to be valid alternatives, gigabit ethernet 1xWAN, 4xLAN, and decent amounts of memory for the firmware and RAM.
PL-WR300-H1 is cheap one.
it sold as bare board.

As power supp. 5V is ok, from USB P.S.
I modified SPIROM to socket but its optional.
Chaneve is a reseller. The CHANEVE 300Mbps Wireless Repeater Router MT7628KN is also sold as a Kuwifi and I believe is manufactured by ZBT. The same case can contain a Realtek based board.
I bought a Mediatek one and it did not contain a separate flash chip. The web interface is impressive from a minimalist standpoint. Only 2 options for wifi encryption - open vs WPA2(personal). It also is very energy efficient. The serial interface had a u-boot loader but did not run Linux.
Neither will ever run OpenWrt. The Mediatek one has 2mb flash/8ram and Realtek one is, well, Realtek.
If you check the alipage you will see the two USB-pins you mentioned.
But if you check usb-pinout specs, you will notice that USB has four pins. The two on the soc are the two data pins, the other two pins needed are +5V and GND. So you can feel free to take +5V and GND directly from the power supply/its connector afaik.
