TP-Link TL-MR3020…



  • Hello, friend of mine was able to run OpenWRT on following device:
    http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/?model=TL-MR3020
    TP-Link TL-MR3020. I did some look inside what hardware it has and now I'm wondering:
    will it able to run pfSense? It's Atheros AR9330 based device with 32MB of RAM.

    I think answer is simple: NO. But I will ask anyway..
    See the attach.

    No, the CPU is not a x86 its a MIPS.

    The 32MB RAM is probably way too small for pfSense.

    They are nice little units though.



  • It is possible to run pfSense on MIPS if you have a way to build it and fix up the builder scripts to work for it.  If someone made a usable pfSense image for a MIPS device (which would need to be built special for the model of the device you would run it on), it would need to be for a device that has at least 128 MB of RAM and a way to connect external storage (some do exist).
