I'm keen to buy a router that supports the 802.11r capability. Would the TPLink WDR7500 support this ? What other components do I need to support and how to I install these additional components.  Also, is the 802.11r capability exposed in Luci or is there anybody that could create a simple add on package that would allow for this support.

Thanks !!

OpenWrt supports hostapd's 802.11r capabilities but since this platform uses the prorietary broadcom wireless stack there is no OpenWrt-side support for this.

Hi, I put openwrt on my RT-16N, but I am getting around 82MBps, while on tomatoUSB and derivatives I was getting around 112Mbps. My cable internet is 120Mbps. Is there any way to increase speed? I am writing about speed over a ethernet cable.

How do you measure the speed?

I am using site and a server closest to me. I am sure results are accurate. I tested on tomatoRAF, flashed openwrt tested, flashed tomatoRAF again tested. Results are consistent.

tomatoRAF around 112Mbps
openwrt around 82Mbps

Earlier (2 weeks ago or so ) I did test with tomato by shibby with similar results.

That kind of disparity isn't reassuring.. … cks.67860/

See above link for a discussion of the NAT routing speed of this hardware ; apparently stock firmwares are capable of up to 300Mbit/s because they use FAST-NAT. Also confirms the benchmarks of tomato.

The discussion might have continued from here.
