 ====== Linksys WRT1900AC ====== ====== Linksys WRT1900AC ======
-Announced, not yet available. 
  
-  ​Some guessing available: https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Linksys_WRT1900AC +WRT1900AC was announced on 6th of January 2014 as a router developed to be used with OpenWrt. Despite Linksys announcement of working with OpenWrt community no patches and no info was shared for the next months. 
-    ​* ​[[doc/hardware/soc/soc.marvell]], see OLPC stuff+ 
 +  ​On the 3rd of April Belkin posted link to ftp server containing patches adding WRT1900AC support. They couldn'​t be applied because of being incorrectly posted, not signed off and adding binary wireless driver ''​ap8x.ko''​. 
 +  * 5 days later a patchset in the form of single e-mail was posted to the openwrt-devel. It was malformed and not signed off, so still couldn'​t be applied. Release of wireless driver has been postponed. 
 +  * Linksys started shipping on 10th or April 
 +  * Wireless driver was [[https://​forum.openwrt.org/​viewtopic.php?​pid=242104#​p242104|announced to stay closed source]] on 30th of July. It'll likely consist of pre-built closed source part (so called "​library"​) and probably some open source file calling kernel APIs. 
 +  * Oddly, the wireless driver [[https://github.com/TheDgtl/mrvl_wlan_v7drv|source]] was later distributed as part of the GPL release of the stock Linksys firmware. ​ This driver requires significant refactoring before it can be included in OpenWRT. 
 + 
 +At this point it is not possible to compile a fully working (including WiFi) customized OpenWrt build for WRT1900AC. 
 + 
 +See also [[https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?​pid=230686|Update on Linksys WRT1900AC support]] forum thread for official statement.
