I bought a WR842ND because I had great experience with it combined with DD-WRT, bummer was that hardware version 1.x is not available anymore. I did try to install the current dd-wrt firmware but the tp-link upgrade interface throws a hardware mismatch error.
The specs of the TP-Link WR842ND V2 hardware can be found here
WR842NDv2 is a router that can get dd-wrt support if the developers in Germany gets a donated router to work on, I don't know if that was the kind of donation you had in mind.
It is most likely not available worldwide at the moment, it got its FCC approval 5th of November and distributors tend to sell out the old models before ordering the new ones.
It may therefore not be available in Germany until later in which case a donated router is much better than a monetary donation.
Yes I would like to donate the price of the device + a little extra, do you know whom I should contact ? I do not know the price of the device in Germany or wherever the team is located.
The German customs has recently started to return devices without a CE approved power adapter (due to many accidents with dangerous non-approved adapters) so make sure it has the CE marking.
The adapter may not even be needed, I think the developers already have a suitable one.
Ask when you email them for the address. _________________ You don’t really own a device until you can open it up and tear it apart
