Topic: Developing support for L7-N-R2000

Hi,

In Malaysia, one of our service providers, TM Unifi, provides the mentioned wireless router to their new customers. (L7-N-R2000). Judging by the admin interface it is a D-Link build. The insides consist of Realtek RTL8196C and Realtek RTL8192CE chips. After searching the router support database, I cannot find any suitable fit. Please advise.

Hi henkisdabro,

I think in general, if I am not mistaken, REALTEK does not provide FULL support to open source community. That is why to get this router supported in OpenWrt (neither does DD-WRT, I read it somewhere in the wiki) will never happen in your life time (in my opinion). That is why...you never see this model available (carrying REALTEK chipsets) in the support list.

Cheers.
