  1. What default password and login ?And second question – Openwrt on AC1200R ?)I can't find bin openwrt image on Google to install, do you have , pleeeeezzz public binary image openwrt to this router if exists) Thx(Sorry my english)


  2. In machine default state, there is no username/password for logging-in. If your machine is firmware version 2.7 or above, please use admin/admin for machine logging-in.


  3. Default IP address of AC1200R:, no username/password for logging-in (if the unit on your side is firmware 2.7 or later, please use admin/admin for machine access.)OpenWRT is not officially supported, no binary image for now. Some keyword \”RTL8197D openwrt\” search might help to get the source codes. Please compile the firmware on your own risk, and any move causing the unit being \”brick\” might bring additional RMA cost, please kindly be advised.
