Very excited for this, also the performance on WireGuard! :slight_smile:

What is the real word openVPN and wireguard speed we can expect from this router?

Thank you.

This is the lab test.

For real world, it should not differ too much.

Why in Flint web page info about support mesh and bluetooth is deleted?

Mesh still need a lot of effort. So it may not be in the first firmware version. We removed that for now.

It has Bluetooth which is used to configure the router. To be clear we removed the IoT part because our IoT software still not released.

Do you have an estimated timeframe for release? I want a Flint!!! :smiley:

Subscribed for notifications a few weeks ago and received a nice email asking for feedback on features recently.

Looking forward to the release of Flint it looks like a really good piece of kit.

May I ask what openwrt version Flint’s firmware is based on?

Thank you.

It is still based on Qualcomm SDK which is based on openwrt 15.05.

Latest openwrt wifi6 supporting is still very lack.

does it have 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz amplifiers?
what is the max tx power (eu/us/china limits)?
Thanks.

It is still based on Qualcomm SDK which is based on openwrt 15.05.

Wow, that seems quite dated, about six years old. Do you know if that is just the kernel and firmware for chips or the whole software stack too?

I’m think Qualcomm is not good idea for new Flint, hw like this is better I’m think Belkin RT3200 / Linksys E8450

Qualcomm - old QSDK - old kernel v. 4 - old OpenWrt v. 15

Does Flint support “CAKE” SQM QoS?

Unfortunately not supporting CAKE now.

Any update on availability and price? :smiley:

So it is announced that pre-sales start tomorrow, I noticed in the invite it says “United States” (probably referring to the time). Will Flint be available globally?
