About this project

Candela Technologies provides an alternative firmware for the ath10k wifi firmware.  Users have requested various features, but without ability to individually pay for the features.  This kickstarter is offered as a way to pool resources with like-minded people and businesses.

This particular kickstarter is to cover the effort to backport the mesh features from the upstream 10.2 QCA firmware into the 10.1 CT ath10k firmware.  The ath10k linux driver may be modified as needed.  The resulting firmware and linux driver changes will be made available for all to use free of charge.

As thanks, you will receive a free hour of ath10k firmware and/or driver support for every $200 you contribute.

Risks and challenges

The risk is that I will not be able to get the features properly backported, but I have extensive knowledge of the software and have successfully accomplished similar goals in the past.
