Is this router incompatible with OpenWrt ? I can't find it in any of the lists in Table of Hardware.
Tp-link provides GPL code for the device in their website  http://www.tp-link.com/en/download/TL-WR1042ND_V1.html
So is it possible to build OpenWrt using this device source ?

Only thing I found after googling for this device is that it is Realtek and not Atheros based device as WR1043nd and most other TP-LINK devices.

So my guess is no. My suggestion is to but TP-LINK 3600 as it is best buy router you can get with great OpenWrt support. Sell this one to somebody else.
