I'm one of may OpenWRT contributors and I'm also a owner of a Linksys WRT3200ACM witch has a NXP 88W8964 wifi chip.
Before being NXP bought all the wireless solutions from Marvell, they were developing a driver called mwlwifi (1). This driver was very buggy and the development was very slow, but since the acquisition, the driver never had more fixes.
I have seen that NXP now has a repository over on github (2) that has the "latest" (last edited by marvell) firmwares but is missing firmwares for the following devices:
So I'd like to ask NXP what's your plan for this devices? Will you provide us with the drivers?
Here at OpenWRT we'd appreciate if you could provide us with the drivers for us to support correctly devices based on your chips.

Hey @tiago_gaspar_tg ,
Did you find the driver for 88w9098?
If yes please do share the link or any guide.
Hopefully someone from NXP can open source the firmware and drivers or fix some pending issues like WPA3.
I am sure a lot of users / developers out there would like to work on this. Hopefully NXP can do something.
I would like to say that please release the drivers for the Openwrt community for mwlwifi.
I hope to see it coming for years as well
there is as well an openwrt forum post:
Is there a NXP.com developer that is also an openwrt lover? (related to Linksys WRT and MWLWIFI) - F...
up for mwlwifi!
