So what is it about the K3C that makes it so no one wants to deal with it? There's a guy at OpenWRT who made some progress but there seems to be a wall they run into regarding a lack of source code distribution...?
I unfortunately purchased two of these things last year and what I thought was an excellent price, unfortunately I haven't managed to get them to work consistently for over 24 hours.
It just starts dropping connection every 5 minutes once it's been plugged in for a while...
So now I have 2 plastic bricks collecting dust I wish I could use.
I believe they can be used as APs at the very east but I'm too much of a novice to really know how to set that up.

You're not going to find support for this router because it's a unicorn in terms of the chipsets being used in it. Intel based, so there aren't any open source drivers and code available to port it over.
Ebay time, sell both and buy a Netgear R7800.
You got hosed, genuinely sorry for that. Sometimes you have to get schooled by the hard knocks to learn about things in life... it sucks when you pay twice.
Now you know about DD-WRT and will know to look for routers that are supported to fix the craptastic support these router mfg's have...Remember, their goal is profit, so to sell you something new every few years... they have no incentive to make shit work right. _________________ FORUM RULES
and what of my question concerning ASUS's Blue Cave product? Is it likely that the firmware would be compatible?
As for the halfway support of OpenWRT, do you know to what extent the community build would work, if at all?
Lastly, the option to use the router as an AP to communicate to my primary router, how would I go about doing that?
Even though I bought them for like... Half the price they are selling them now, seems like a lot of lost value for something that's just a software problem =\
Of course if I can't use them I'll of course try and get rid of them but feels pretty shitty to be handing off my problem to someone else lol
