The ZBT WR8305RT is a 802.11bgn wireless router based on the MediaTek MT7620N SoC. It has five Ethernet ports, out of which one is the wan port. It has one radio (SoC-based 2.4 GHz 802.11bgn). It comes pre-installed with OpenWrt Chaos Calmer.
The PCB has a label of ZBT-WE1626, which is probably the internal name of the router, whereas it is marketed as ZBT WR8305RT.
While the router is running, Wifi suddenly stops working. SSID is being broadcasted, clients are disconnected and not able to re-connect. Restarting Wifi service does not fix the issue. Only a full router reboot fixes the issue. This seems to be an issue with the driver. This is reported at several places such as below:

Please add the installation procedure here.
ZBT WR8305RT is powered using a 12V adapter
From seeing the PCB, it is not evident if there are any test points or pin holes for UART (TX/RX)
There are two GPIOs labeled GPIO1 (used for reset button) and GPIO2 (used for WPS button, which is not physically present).
ZBT WR8305RT has 8 LEDs as shown below:
