mt7620: no proper wireless driver

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: kernel Version: Trunk
Keywords: mt7620 rt2x00 wireless driver Cc: blogic@…

Description

I've just compiled the trunk for an MT7620N based router only to find there seems no proper wireless driver (a variant of rt2860?). The rt2x00 driver on mt7620a was disabled since r37037, probably because rt2x00 currently does not support mt7620a/n SoC?

Asus rt-n14u is based on mt7620n, and the source code of its GPL firmware is available online. However, the wireless driver in the tarball is a binary version of rt2860v2. Workarounds from the Chinese community are similar -- binary rt2860v2 driver ported to mt7620.

The source code of rt2860v2 for mt7620 seems available from the rt-n56u project repository. Would it be possible to port that to OpenWrt as a workaround?

It would be illegal for OpenWrt to integrate such sources and there is no desire to do so.

Sorry that I didn't realize that source code was not free.
But I'm wondering if there were any other fixes or workarounds for this chip?

you did not look then. the license info is all over the code

what do fixes and workarounds have to do with a wifi driver ?
