While trying to find an LEDE (OpenWRT) 802.11ac supported device, I stumbled upon the FS-WR106. After a bit of back and forth with their representative, I ended up acquiring one unit for testing.

It came preloaded with OpenWRT 14.07, which is old. They were kind enough to send me a build based around 15.05 (not 15.05.1), and it’s stable, but it’s a no-frills build with no enhancements- other than a slightly modified graphic for the router’s name- MediaTek OpenWRT.

As of yesterday, Jiawei Wang’s build for the ZBT-WE1326 were pulled into LEDE’s trunk. Yesterday.

There are minor bugs with this build- the GPIO pins are unknown for the LEDs, and the power light is not controllable at this time.

However, it’s not the right image. The ZBT-WG3526 (16MB) squashfs layout is what is current on this device:

Also, I’m still having a wireless issue with this LEDE build, even though it claims I am in -HEAD, rather than 17.01.1. Need to do more research on this:

Ah well.. back to the drawing board. I’ll mess with this later.

Primary roll is ready to go? Yep!

A handful of printers are ready to go, and will have more done as the weekend progresses. There are also a handful of Core2-i3 grade PCs that need repurposing, but those take less actual effort- and a bit more time to get current.

I know- my blogging “every day” has fallen to the wayside- yet again. I find it difficult to find things to share when not that much seems to be happening. That, and I got over the “social media” phase long ago- and the blog took a tumble BEFORE that.

Anyhow, for the last couple days, I’ve been busy:

Rather busy! These are all going to need to be cleaned and likely given new rollers, but the whole lot was quite affordable (much more so than the truck rental). They’re almost all lasers, and a couple are even COLOR laser printers!

Hope to get these handled and sold ASAP!
