Thank you. Device has been ordered!

For some reason I was surprised with delivery on 20th of July because my local dealer has run out of stock. But don't worry I will confirm when device is sent to them. BrainSlayer is also aware of the awaiting gift Smile

I have abandoned the chipin for TL-WR2543ND due to lack of interest. The other one has ended and as I said I am expecting delivery. Thanks to all participants.

@Metatron: Thanks for your donation, you obviously were the most generous donor between us all. Much appreciated.

@checho: Thanks for organizing the whole thing!

@DD-WRT: Many thanks in advance for porting DD-WRT to the WDR4300!

I just received my wdr4300 over the weekend (from BHphotovieo.com for the mentioned 80USD) and it works great. Definitely a fast device (I'm using a Synology NAS which now has approx 4 times faster DL/UL speed). But as MoxFulder wrote, we definitely need DD-WRT since the out of the box GUI is pretty limited.
I will try openWRT too in the meanwhile, as it seems it will take a couple of more weeks till we get DD-WRT.

cheers

Does that include tax?! I thought tax is additional is US. In EU it's included.

I have a good price list for tp-link routers. If we all are interested I may create chip in donation so that everybody may contribute. When the goal is reached I will buy the device(s) we have enough money for and I will send it to BrainSlayer for support development.

TL-WDR4300 N750 $105.34
TL-WR2543ND 450Mbps $88.11

For the US the right answer is: it depends.

The Sales tax is set by each state (e.g. Colorado has 7-9% depending on the good, while Oregon has 0%).

In general if you buy online you do not have to pay the sales tax. (e.g. newegg or amazon)

Good for the consumer, but it will kill local business in the long run...

Yes! It was delivered on my desk yesterday afternoon.
It will go to post office in Monday so that I send it to BrainSlayer.

awesome. Thanks!
I hope Brainslayer is able to include the option for the hardware NAT acceleration. I love this machine for its blazing speed! OpenWRT doesn't support this...

Thanks!
cheers

I just left the device in the post office so that they deliver it to developers. To sum it up, the device cost exactly what Paypal transferred to me after their comissions. I paid 12 EUR postage total from the local distributor to me and then to Germany. So this is my donation for the project - postage and time Smile

It would take a week for the post to deliver the device to developers. After that it would be only them to say how much time they would need Smile

So we already have donations on the TL-WDR4300 device, and it's on its way overseas? Ooh I would have donated if this device came on my radar sooner! Smile

I want to ditch my Broadcom based router, but I was waiting for the longest time for an Atheros 3-stream dual band router.

This is the tracking system of the post office. It shows where the package was last registered.
