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...

EDIT: Regarding details from this post about the Archer C9 v5 campaign in the Broadcom forum, if it is indeed true that gofundme nicks an extra 9% off the top besides what donators add as a "tip", then I suggest NOT using it and someone use their personal PayPal account to collect funds and go from there.

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

Great!, When you have the RAX120 ready for donation, please PM me, I will send my token donation $100 to BS.
I have RAX120 and Costco RAX75 Also the TP-Link Archer AX11000 but its Broadcom based Sad

Currently the better router with 210G ports is ASUS RT-89X:

Merlin is already working on porting the AX routers to his firmware. Nothing has been done yet here, but the current global status of things is likely holding some of it up.

I think it`s a good idea, but current situation will obviously affect it
