Of course you don´t get support from MT for OpenWRT. If that´s an issue, then don´t install OpenWRT.
OpenWRT is a nice alternative for some cases (eg. if you don´t get along well with RoS but have 10 years of Linux experience or something is missing from RoS which you desperately need).

Re: Channel Selection vs. Channel Width

C stands for Control and is 20MHz width. And every e is also 20MHz width. So, if you choose i.e. channel 5160 (which is 36) and Ceee you configure channels 5160 to 5240 (which is 80MHz width) where channel 5160 is control channel. And, if you choose i.e. channel 5280 (which is 56) and eC you config...
