Topic: Missing support for ASUS RT-AC68U

The content of this topic has been archived between 2 May 2018 and 7 May 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

Google was my friend, found picture of serial connection:

If you like me to do something to make the progress going faster, just let me know.

@Zajec, at this point, what need to do to make USB ports on RT-AC68U working?
If there is anything I can do ,pls let me know.

Look for some reference code in Broadcom's GPL package, write a new bcma-based driver for Linux, send it to USB subsystem maintainer.

That seems to mean too much for me, who is not a developer. :-(.
Is there any plan on your side to support this box with openwrt?

Who can help us with that?
I can donate cash, and i dont think im alone.

Please update with bootlog, even if not finished:
http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/asus/rt-ac68u

And possibly give the URL to this thread there too, i guess many like to have OpenWRT installed, and find more info here..like GPIO.

@Zajec, any progress on this box? is it enough of info provided about GPIOs?

another big thing is the USB port.

Can you check if you can enter failsafe mode using WPS button?
Try pressing WPS when you can see following messages in serial console:

Press the [f] key and hit [enter] to enter failsafe mode
Press the [1], [2], [3] or [4] key and hit [enter] to select the debug level

@Zajec, finally, I got my serial console on RT-AC68U, when I press and hold the WPS button:

@Zajec, serial console to RT-AC68U is ready, I am ready to help test what you want:

PunBB bbcode test

Who can help us with that?
I can donate cash, and i dont think im alone.

Developing support for new arch is a huge tasks, requires hundreds of hours, doesn't have to succeed, I don't think OpenWrt community want/should sponsor developers doing that.

@Zajec, any progress on this box? is it enough of info provided about GPIOs?

I told earlier it requires testing.

tangsoft wrote:

another big thing is the USB port.

Noone started it yet AFAIK.

tangsoft wrote:

@Zajec, finally, I got my serial console on RT-AC68U, when I press and hold the WPS button:
(...)
Committing NVRAM...done
Waiting for wps button release...

You just erased your NVRAM content which was far from what you needed/wanted.

tangsoft wrote:

when I release the WPS button, the box seems to boot to openwrt I have installed, I never see the prompt you mentioned above:

For a moment there was a bug in OpenWrt enabling earlyprintk, but not enabling standard serial console.

So we have WPS button working, nice smile

WOW!!!
Since the trunk version 45450, usb ports worked on BCM53 platform like ASUS RT-AC68U.

Though USB ports working now, but LEDs of both USB ports get no light.

So how's the known bug list with latest trunk?

I guess he asked about "known issues"/"missing support". Or: what is already working and what is not working yet.

(Anyway, many thanks to both/all of you. It is nice to see there are people with better equipment, time and competence to experiment with this.)

i cant seem to get the wireless working, can anyone help?

I had the same issue and bought another one later. I thought the problem was my dragon touch m8 but it seems it was not. Thank you anyway for this helpful thread.

I'm considering buying this router. So whats the current state of OpenWRT.

any news?


I am very interested in being able to install OpenWRT on Asus Ac68u stably .

Sadly, I believe this (such repeated lazy questions) is what makes developers start ignoring ppl at some point.

Same happens in one or two another topics.
Noone is working on this, don't expect anything for many more months.
