OpenWRT:

Barebones OpenWRT trunk build can be found at https://downloads.openwrt.org/sna...actory.bin

Once you get OpenWRT installed, SSH in and try the following commands to install the needed additional packages/settings for the 5Ghz radio and web interface. When it reboots It probably should work. You can then access via http://192.168.0.1 for the OpenWRT LuCI interface to configure from there on out.

PHP Code:
opkg updateopkg install luci kmod-nf-nathelper kmod-ipt-nathelper-rtsp kmod-nf-nathelper-extra kmod-ath10k ath10k-firmware-qca988x;uci set wireless.radio0.noscan=1;uci set wireless.radio1.noscan=1;reboot 
Example of where to go to upload .bin: https://www.trendnet.com/emulator...mware.html

OpenWRT first login info: https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/firstlogin

It's not a bad deal if you install OpenWRT on it. You'll probably get a few hundred megabits/sec on 5Ghz.

Unfortunately they aren't doing it for free anymore. Just picked one up today and he tried to do it for free but the deal ended. Only paid a $25 deposit though so not terrible.

$25 is nothing compared to the full price of this router and much much better than anything you could get for around $25 to $50...you got to love Tmobile!

With the deposit you are just "renting" the router though right? You have to give it back if you leave t-mobile?

Is Asus sold by T-Mobile the RT-AC66 or RT-AC68 ? And assuming your not a TMO customer is it worth paying $52 more over this deal ?

You mean from internet speed or local streaming. Send me some info. I am totally out of touch about terms like tomato, openwrt, & some other terms that people mention but i have no idea what they used for. Thanks

OpenWRT firmware may be more stable than factory installed firmware from the manufacturer. If you're not interested in tech tinkering then you're probably better off getting a different router. I don't know of a good alternative since I only use OpenWRT compatible routers.
