If my basic needs are: capability to have a wifi on/off button, and pi-hole/ AdGuard-home through openwrt-like DNS filtering + currently having a bgn, but probably in this year an ac or (if big tech drops it to the lower category adroid level) an ax-wifi phone as only wifi-clients, maybe with some "NAS"-ing "VPN servering" in the future,
should i worry and think about waiting for AX routers' support from this side of the world to be able select one what fits, or
should i get any randomly avaible fitting AX, in hopes of it will be supported soon ish, maybe with a pi, to fill my needs, or
drop the stress off, because it does not matter anyways, and get fitting AC router as soon as i wish, even if i would like to futureproof with having an ax router, because the market fills slow?
I am sittin around this question since weeks (i had 0 usabe knowledge 3 weeks ago from the topic of what is really the 802.11** + a month before what is pi-hole/ networking is, but now i am hooked even if i probably do not need them), and i have rached the dead-end/tipping point... i need help
When can the new release -of wort- arrive? (I am new to the release schedule)
Sadly none of them is avaible in my region, and both are over of my budget.
If waiting, should i really do? I mean until summer, ok. Until fall, ok, or more?
I mean i am totally in the dark to even guess, because i am not in the system to know: what are we waiting for right now, and how difficult to pass this stage.
In the case of ipq807x, getting ethernet- and wireless drivers to work (ipq60xx and ipq50xx may be looked at afterwards, it partially depends on the former) - in the case of mt7621a+mt7915e or mt7622bv+mt7915e device availability on the market (and on developers' desks).
technically the mt7621a+mt7915e based TOTOLINK X5000R and Ubiquiti UniFi 6 LR are also supported, but they put the wifi6 wireless on the rather slow mt7721a SOC, these are more basic APs, rather than providing the performance for a high-end router.
Do you know where would I see this work being done on ipq807x in OpenWrt? When I look at master on github here, I hardly see any work posted there, and even most of the limited amount of work I see posted there is from 12-13 months ago.
Yes. Refer to the two pages I'll link below, you should read the doc/man page about it before flashing. There is no WiFi 6 support in OpenWrt yet you're better off staying OEM for probably a year or so... No one knows what the prevailing WiFi 6 router will be supported in OpenWrt yet besides maybe the top few devs. It mostly depends how progress on open source drivers goes.
