802.11ax Routers

Yes, and this is true. 2.4GHz is provided by MT7615-like hw integrated in MT7622 SoC, and that's 4T4R 802.11bgn (potentially VHT rates could work on 2.4 GHz, but I think this is neither supported by the driver nor intended in the 802.11 spec). So for sure HE rates on 2.4GHz are not possible with the UniFi 6 LR.


Is there a chance for Linksys MR7350 to be supported? I'm looking for not-to-expensive replacement (using tp-link archer c2 v3 now).

It doesn't work right. ethernet mac address is randomly generated. wifi does not come up.

No idea what's wrong honestly.

edit: factory image is wrong as well.

If anyone's adventerous, Amazon have a Rockspace AX1800 router for $30.

Don't forget to check the coupon checkbox, to receive the discount.

EDIT: Apparently Broadcom - https://fcc.report/FCC-ID/2AUA9-RQZY004

Hello Jeff1,
can you tell me how you get root access on the l e7350,
did you find any uart connector on it.

It looks like neither Belkin RT3200 nor Linksys E8450 is on sale in EU (checked here), maybe it was rebranded for EU?

No, the availability in Europe is just really low. (I managed to get RT3200-UK in June, but E8450 has not been much available anywhere. The UK version also has the "normal" German/Nordic plug.)

See Amazon UK:

(curiously, it exists in the UK, but not in the current EU area :frowning: )

I purchased Belkin RT3200 from Amazon UK and updated it with firmware from https://github.com/dangowrt/linksys-e8450-openwrt-installer.

Working beautifully! With WPA3-SAE security and super-fast 802.11ax radio this is the best AP I ever had.


BELKIN RT3200 unavailable in France and high price 129.99 £ / 152.74 Euros compared to the Tenbay mentioned above

I suspect stock firmware is doing something really dodgy GDPR-wise so they are just not selling it in EU.

Just got a Asus RT-X89X (IPQ8074 - QCN5024/QCA8337), hopefully I can find an useful way to contribute.

I'm looking to buy a Linksys E8450 (US version of Belkin RT3200) when it gets back in stock, however I wonder how's SQM performance of this thing.

Another thing I need is VLAN tagging on the WAN port, currently I have a Mikrotik hAP ac2 but I'm running it with stock ROS since ISP now requires tagging VLAN 999.


I got an RT-AX88U yesterday to replace my WRT3200. The Asus router is nice. Runs Linux 4.1.52 but only Broadcom blobs released with the GPL source. I'm missing OpenWRT though.


hello @geminis3 i have a belkin rt3200 the sqm performances is very good

look my thread "new test router for bufferbloat"

sqm = max 550 /600 :wink:

Yea sadly for WiFi 6 the only choices still are Asus AX58U or AX88U and install Asuswrt-Merlin (which acually can do SQM cake now too). Maybe the Netgear XR1000 with DumaOS is promising, not sure.

In open source land of OpenWrt (and DD-WRT I think) there is currently no viable option if you want all the features with a strong SOC, good RAM, storage, USB3, etc.

My S10-E connects at 1.2Gbs to router (supports AX):

Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax (2.4/5GHz),VHT80 MU-MIMO,1024QAM
Up to 1.2Gbps Download / Up to 1.2Gbps Upload

I just miss OpenWRT. :frowning:

That's with CAKE or fq_codel?

Have u performed iperf3 benchmark? I measured max ~350-380mbps from hAP ac2 with OpenWrt to my Exynos S10e (I think Snapdragon uses the same Broadcom chip tho).

with cake and piece of cake

with fq codel if i remember my values he was more important

look this if i can you help

Using Ookla speedtest from the browser on the phone I get the full ISP bandwidth upload and download. My ISP charges for 400/20 but I usually get 475/25. The phone sees the full bandwidth. My S10-E is Qualcomm.
