I meant “official openwrt images” for my/your device, which use the open driver, of course.
MT300A should be officially supported by openwrt. Flash it, to give it a try.
In past I had probs with MT7620A-devices, too.
I have only customized openwrt on the MT7620A-based devices, without opkg. So

Yeah lostdog, me too. Disappointed to see only a $17 shipping method available after entering payment details, but my excitement for trying the new coolness overrode my distaste of the shipping cost. There was also some mention of additional cost for import duties, not sure if that applies to US purchases or not.
Fingers crossed that the super early bird ships soon. I’ve got a vacation coming up near the end of the month, and that would be the perfect environment to test it out. I’ll be sad if I barely miss it.
Was surprised that even though I signed up for notification using their Facebook post on the AR750S “beta” , never got notification of the preorder was avalible… Good thing I watched for it… As an aside on shipping… I ordered two of the GL MT 300as awhile ago and they got stuck in US Customs … supposedly mine wasn’t the only order… Al Zhao was really good about it… fortunately it decided to go through…
