As this unit is MediaTeK and Modem, highly unlikely any third party support (drivers) will be available as MediaTeK based Products are not as well supported as other chipset manufactures Usually Broadcom based units are the ones to play with 😉 and have a look at SNBForums as a lot of coders are based there and can maybe better advise Enjoy In a completely sane world, madness is the only freedom (J.G.Ballard).

There never has been custom firmwares for DSL-type routers. First I’ve ever seen was about a year ago from Hugo Gomes for DSL-AC68U, but quick and dirty. And last month Gnuton did a good job with merlin support on this very modemrouter. Nobody will ever do it for that really old N16 with too slow CPU and poor HW. Its not able to do more computing than needed for basic functions on stock firmware. Nice would be for the new DSL-AC88U, but due to different hardware it wont ever come too. He can use it as modem-only (dont know if there is such a mode) and use a RT-AC86U behind for routing and everything else.
