What is the current support state for this board?
Will it be supported in openwrt 5.4 kernel with all features working ( NAPT+HQoS network accelerator, MediaTek Wi-Fi Warp Accelerator, ARM NEON Crypto Extensions)?
I’ve read that there is a hardware issue (pcie slot) with the current version, is there a hardware revision planned?
I also can’t see BPI-MT7615 on aliexpress anymore, are there any compatible cards which support 802.11 ax?
Edit: I found this: https://www.mediatek.com/blog/mediatek-mt7915-wi-fi-6-wave-1-chipset-builds-in-a-range-of-industry-firsts
Would this work in R64 when released?
Thank you for the info.
So these features work with openwrt compiled from master branch?
I can wait for mt7915 to become available and use the integrated mt7622 wifi until then.
I also see some WHNAT plugin in the kernel repo: https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-R64-bsp-4.19/tree/master/mtk_wifi/mt_wifi/embedded/tools/plug_in/whnat
You can try porting it to 5.4 and then i can add it to my repo…
It’s MTK proprietary drivers and only binary file is available but I think it’s not a problem because mt7622 cpu is powerful and CPU won’t be a bottleneck for built-in 4x4n traffic.
Does DIR-X1860 use MT7622 SoC? Thanks.
No,it is mt7621 with mt7915d WiFi card.
For mt7622 product, you can buy this one.
