Regarding third party firmware support, Realtek SoC support in OpenWrt
+ (success) RTL8196C port status. on the OpenWrt Forum
and the Realtek thread on the DD-WRT Forum may be of interest.

AC1200 MU-MIMO Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router

Product page (CN)

"V1.1" and "10033208" is silkscreened on the top of the board in the FCC photos.

According to the User Manual, only the Tenda AC10U model has a USB port.

The Product Similarity Declaration document says,
  • "The model of AC10U's Power is 12Vdc 1.5A, with a USB port and circuit.
  • The model of AC10's Power is 12Vdc 1A, without a USB port and circuit.
The difference of two models just are adapter power, USB port and circuit. The rest are same.
The difference between the two models has no effect on the power of prototype."


Specifications from the review:
  • Number of Antennas/Removable: 4/No
  • Ports: 1x WAN / 3x LAN (GbE)
  • Size: 8.6 x 5.5 x 1.9 inches or 220 x 141.5 x 49 mm
  • Weight: 12.3 ounces or 350 grams

Unbrick procedure[edit]

  • Connect router to PC via serial (CH340, PL2303, etc.)
If you don't know GND, RX, TX see below image. YOU DON'T NEED VCC!!!
  • Before power up, press RST/WPS button and hold it, then connect the power.
You should hold RST/WPS for about 15 secs since you connected the power,
in order to enter "disaster mode".
  • Connect cable between WAN1 port and your computer network card.
For that connection set IP, subnet mask
- you don't need to fill out gateway.
(In my case I've used the portable version of Tftpd64 - v4.62)
  • Open Tftpd32/Tftpd64; Server interfaces → select your connection,
the one with IP
  • Select Tftp Client tab; Host:, Port: 69, Local file:
Block Size: Default and press "Put".
