I was not. I have been trying for over a week. I can't get any support from the helpdesk and the tips from the forum have not helped me either. I might have a short circuit on the underside of the board, but hard to know. I have a multimeter but the two points that are soldered together are both ground but there still might be damaged because someone has scratched away the solder at the factory leaving horrible markings.
If it can be of any help, according to the MediaTek MT7688 Datasheet, the CPU chipset supports AES128/256CBC, WEP64/128, TKIP, AES, WPA, WPA2, WAPI and WPS: PBC, PIN. For any other VPN or security features, you have to build it yourself, or find the right software package.
Perhaps an alternative would be to use an unsecured connection to a router that does support PEAP?
Is there a list of supported webcams that this supports? I've plugged two in, rebooted, and then accessed the webcam application in the web interface - and neither of them show me an image. Am I missing something?
