I've seen quite a few discussions about donating routers, criticisms for creating firmware hacks for unsupported routers, when will this router be supported, etc. and I wonder if setting up a crowdfunded donation page on something like GoFundMe to purchase said router(s) would be an option.

If people want to set up such a thing to get some new devices supported, great. But last time we did one, well, I know one person contributed the most. I'm all for it, but we need someone who is close enough to Germany that shipping costs, etc. aren't such an issue. Problem is, people don't want to put their money where their mouth is, so...
I’ll try donating a Netgear Nighthawk RAX120 in the next few weeks once its uprooted out of one of my “stock router for guests” networks.
That’s ahead of the curve on ath1*k open source ax code but better early than late on messing with the hardware and a lot cheaper than reference qualcomm kit for 8074 @ 2.2GHZ _________________ Fleet Deployment of Netgear Nighthawk X10 R9000s
