Hi Guys,

I was wondering if you could help.

I bought this router from Amazon.co.uk: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Afoundry-Wireless-Fastest-Antenna-Computer/dp/B019WBON5K for £69. It's well made (to eye), 6 x5dbi antennas, AC capable - figured it's a tad better than that same Netgear 6300 but of course no where near the Linksys WRT 1900. It never claims to be either. Linksys is double the money (albeit 3 times better).

Here is the spec pic from the back of the box:


Now, this router has absolutely 0 reviews anywhere. Given the specifications above - would it ever have WRT support? Or should I send it back...

In terms of it's performance - started very patchy yesterday out of the box, left on for 24h and now seems to be doing OK. Range is not as advertised but better than that same Skyhub 2.

Doesn't want to change the password though... at all. Just stays at 88888888, tried all options, tried downloading and upgrading software too from the www.afoundry360.com (had a giggle at FAQ page)

Many thanks!

MediaTek chipset, on the forum here, Ralink SoC seem be the area.

User GreyDoc seem be working with dd-wrt builds for Mediatek/Ralink.

Could well be that your AFoundry is a similar unit like any of
the well known brand units.
The picture you posted is not readable, the amazon site mentions MT7621+MT7612EN+MT7603.

I think the dd-wrt support for mediatek chipset routers is not as
wide than broadcom and atheros routers.
For the price of £69, I think there are better choices in broadcom and atheros side.
If it was me, using dd-wrt, would send it back.

PS. This thread could be moved to RaLink SoC

Similar AC1200 routers using the MT7621 chip :

https://wikidevi.com/wiki/MediaTek_MT7621

e.g the Netgear 3700 v5 and WSR-1166DHP

Over here (scroll down), is a picture of the EW1200 PCB in case anyone is interested.
