Wireless Freedom

Powered by OpenWRT

The OpenWrt Project is a Linux based operating system that can run on a variety of embedded devices. Stock router firmware provided by a vendor can severely limit your capabilities, while OpenWrt provides a fully accessible filesystem and package management system so you can customize your router to fit your exact use case. OpenWRT has a large list of open-source packages that you can browse through and install at any time. OpenWRT gives the user true wireless freedom so they can customize every aspect of their router without limitations. This is the equivalent of a router OS that comes with a powerful app store which provides your Wifi access point the ability to do things the original manufacturer never envisioned. Welcome to true wireless freedom with the power of open source router firmware OpenWRT.

The Banana Pi R64 is an experimental router based development board, which we have configured to boot from SD card with the latest version of mainline OpenWRTR. It has 4 Gigabit LAN ports, 1 Gigabit WAN, and AC wifi AP function while using 64 bit chip design.

The MT7622 contains MediaTek’s Adaptive Network technology that allows for easy setup, network self-healing, roaming, band steering, Smart quality of service, advanced security and more. For audio and voice control applications, essential audio interfaces such as I2S, TDM and S/PDIF are included. And for Home Automation Gateways there is a rich array of slow I/O in addition to the integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth solutions.

Powered by a 64-bit dual-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 1.35GHz, the MT7622 provides a host of advanced connectivity options like SGMII/RGMII, PCIe, and USB, and 4X4 802.11n FEM integration. Extending the platform with 802.11ac to meet additional markets is simply done via MT7615 SoC.

The advantage of the MediaTek Wi-Fi Warp Accelerator is two-fold. First, it connects the Gigabit+ class 802.11ac networking through to the Gigabit switch/WAN connection via multi-Gigabit internal pathways, ensuring no bottleneck. Secondly, its specialized design not only offloads the CPU from many-user throughput and QoS calculations, it does so at lower power. The result is the MediaTek Wi-Fi Warp Accelerator maintains a sustained high-performance when even supporting multiple, simultaneous heavy users.

We have configured this router to boot the latest version of OpenWRT from sd card and pre-loaded TorGuard VPN configuration files.
