I am passionate about open source software and Linux, being a community member of several open source projects. I am also a networking passionate/hobbyist for more than 10 years, spending a lot of time around computers and internet cafes when the internet was a rare and expensive thing in my city.
My story with the Linksys WRT series has begun in 2006 when I bought my real first router (WRT54GL). Before that, I was using an old Pentium 133 Mhz PC as a router. After several years of searching for some nice hardware to install OpenWRT, Linksys announced the new WRT line at CES. I was very happy.
I bought my first AC1900 V1 in summer 2015, and with the help of the community, especially from nitroshift, I obtained invaluable help to flash CC on it. Since then, I've learned a lot about OpenWRT, how to customize it. I've become also an IRC channel regular.
Since then, my mother's router is running OpenWRT too, and I have started building custom images for my router, but also playing and compiling images on x86 arch which can be easily tested in a VM, since I am mostly interested in contributing to LuCI. I have also reported several bugs.
I am very excited about the announcement of WRT3200ACM and I would be eager to play with it by helping test and stabilize the wireless driver on different builds and by improving LuCI.
