Porting to New Hardware

I'd like to work on porting AREDN to the Mikrotik MetaRouter platform, which supports OpenWRT. What information do I need to get started?

Shoot me an email to connect

Shoot me an email to connect up offline. I have had Aredn partially functioning on some microtik hardware, but there are some critical hurdles yet to overcome.

It can not be done in

It can not be done in metarouter due to limitations inside of the metarouter platform.

Yes, a side discussion is

Yes, a side discussion is taking place that the metarouter does not have access to configure the wlan and is a barrier for AREDN goals.  There will be more limitations.

Yes, unfortunately this is

Yes, unfortunately this is the case. Otherwise it would be perfect - OpenWRT is supported, and channels all the way down to 2312MHz are supported. Perhaps eventually MetaROUTER will support PCI passthrough, or a virtual wireless driver will be written for it, and then we could achieve this. But until then, no such luck.
