I see v1 - v4 but was wondering if anyone has worked with v5? There is no - archer-c9v5-webflash.bin

Also there is a broken link if you go from the 4.x - DD-WRT Wiki: Installation instructions.

There is a GoFundMe campaign to buy a donor TP-Link Archer C9 v5 unit to send to DD-WRT so they can add it to their supported list:

Every $5 helps, more if you can afford it.

On June 22 the 3rd (and finally correct) v 5.0 router was delivered to me.
On June 23 the GoFundMe reached 100% of the $120 goal (they keep 9%). I tested the router on N and AC bands, good! I boxed & went to FedEx: they wanted $138 for the 2.15 pound box. Next: UPS wanted $160! Went home to regroup.
On June 24, today, I returned to FedEx with my airline ID and received a 75% discount on shipping the router to DD-WRT / BrainSlayer in Deutschland. ($38 bucks a lot more reasonable?) Arrival date: 29.06.2020. Done!

Now, we just need to wait for the process of DD-WRT to be ported to the TP-Link Archer C9 v 5.0 units!

No one seemed to want to make this happen, there were many naysayers. I thought GoFundMe might work, and with all of your help, we did it together!

Thanks to all who participated / donated. Any leftover proceeds will be donated to the DD-WRT general fund. Go, DD-WRT!

Cheers!
