If you are successful and have learned something that would help others ("gee I wish I had known this before I started"), then take a minute to update this wiki. Isn't it better to consolidate knowledge here than to wade though hundreds of postings?

Sister site: Asus T-Mobile Cellspot

This site has been seeded from material from the T-Mobile Cellspot Wiki: the Cellspot is a hobbled RT-AC68U that can be upgraded to a fully functional RT-AC68U.
