"We're not rich enough to keep buying cheap stuff..."

Bought a cheap TP-WR841N route with the intent of installing OpenWRT.

I received the v14 version. It turns out it's so low-end that it's no longer supported by OpenWRT [1].

The absurdities of low-cost hardware. I just realized that while the TL-WR841N has "300Mbps" Wifi, it connects to LAN only with 10/100 Mbps.

What year is this? Where's my gigabit LAN?
