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!
