Dear Sir @frollic
Thank you for fast respond ..
Already he tried this system but unfortunately doesn't support PCIe ... as per Mr. Dairyman (ROOter Developer)

So I want to try to support my friend by getting OpenWrt system for his router by anyone has image built it for this system ...

is there a better way explaining with steps ..

These guides are not clear for beginners like me ... which app which files we should use to get supported firmware


Porting OpenWrt to a new device isn't a beginner's task (it could be, but would involve a very steep learning curve), it needs hands on development. Reading those links would be the easiest part of it, failing that just means it's not going to happen.


is there chance to find someone , he built on WS1698 based on OpenWrt ?
if yes...... should I search on Github to find firmware or what ?
