VDSL2 Router with OpenWRT sold in Israel

#1

Hi,

@yuvadm looking at you:
I need to buy a router to replace my malfunctioning N600 and I cannot find any intersection between ksp.com | ivory.com & openwrt.org

Does anyone know where to buy one that is supported?

You can use the ISP router as modem or buy one yourself.

That is exactly what I am talking about. I had a router that broke, TP-LINK TD-9980, worked with openwrt, had some small problems but now it just died so I’m looking to replace it.
I found via openwrt this on ebay I’m going to try to buy:
BT Home Hub 5@ebay

This type of model (VDSL2) fits bezeq infrastructure, if you need hot than I think you need something else.

Right, I’m just trying to avoid that. i.e. I prefer not to have another router at home that I do not control.

Plonter also produced zero routers supported by openwrt. Zigzag as well, at least what you say is not up to date - how do you know?

Has only one ethernet port and no external antenna. I am looking for something that would run the house.

@yuvadm Do you have any input? Good VDSL2 router?

I plan to complement it with another router offering wifi. If I could find one doing both I would.

Going to UK, seems like there is a larger variety of routers there. Anyone can recommend anything from Amazon.co.uk?

i have the TD-W9970 at home, it might run the same hardware as TD-W9980, or close enough to use the same Firmware. i’ll update you. * looking for my screw driver *

i’ll get back to you in couple of days. bug me if not

Hey,
So I got in London a Linksys WRT1900ACS router. They go for 1020NIS here, and 550NIS in UK (paid 750 because I had 2 days). They actually say “Open source ready” on the box.
Its super powerful and I would love ideas about how to use it. Can also report here tests.

It seems from what I am reading vdsl2 firmware is proprietary and not supported in OpenWRT. So I have to have a modem, and a powerful router and not a single device (as much as I want to save on power usage).
