Unsupported: WiFi 5GHz

Pages in the unsupported: namespace are intended to deliver general information about an “unsupported” status. They should help users to better understand the reasons and the consequences of this “unsupported”.

Since these pages can be reached via a dataentries of very different devices, the descriptions should be of general nature, or cover all the different devices affected by this “unsupported”. They shall not describe any device specifics.

  1. What does it mean, “WiFi 5GHz unsupported”?
    • This means that the 5GHz WiFi will not work at all.
  2. What is the reason for the unsupported status?
    • no Open Source driver available for BCM63xx, MT7610EN, etc.
    • …list other reasons/SoCs…
  3. What consequences does this have in regards to your expectations?
    • Expectation: Fully working 5GHz WiFi at UHS™1)
    • Reality: You can not use 5GHz at all.
  4. Will this status change over time? If yes, in what timeframe?
    • Nobody knows. It all depends on the availability of FOSS drivers. Expect timeframes of multiple months up to multiple years, or even never.
  5. What can you do now?
    • Easy / Short term: Get a device with different wifi chip / SoC which is fully supported by OpenWrt
    • Hard / Long term: Get on the nerves of the wifi chip / SoC manufacturer…
  6. Where can you find more information about current support status?
