Seems to work, but startup, config, and documentation issues

This device (which runs a branded stripped-down derivative of OpenWRT) is not automatically recognized when I plug it into a Linux PC. It requires connecting in via USB serial console and booting from the bootloader prompt before it will start OpenWRT and appear as a usbnet device on the connected PC. It then seems to work okay, but the frequencies listed in the user interface are very confusingly for 2.4 and 5.6GHz bands, not the 802.11ah 900Mhz band actually supported by the hardware.

None of this is clearly explained in the limited documentation available, I had to mess around and figure it out for myself. It is unclear where software updates can be obtained, which is a pity as the whole HaLow thing feels very much early alpha v0.1 right now. The vendor could do everyone a favor by making their nrc7292 driver source code available for integration into general proper OpenWRT releases instead of doing their own thing half-baked.
