Thank you for your interest in the libreCMC project. Sadly, the
libreCMC project won't be able to support this router in the
foreseeable future. At a quick glance, this router uses Broadcom wifi
chipsets that require non-free drivers / non-free loadable firmware
blobs. At this point in time, there are no free software 802.11ac
chipsets available.

Most of the routers that the project supports[1] use an ath9k based
chipset for wifi or have a mini pci-e slot where a non-free wifi
chipset can be replaced.
