In 2020 what is the go to cheap OpenWRT router?
- Gigabit Ethernet
- >128MB RAM
- Preferably multi-core
- No Broadcom chip
The Xiaomi Mi Router 3g was, in my opinion the best affordable router that ticked all these boxes. I own 2.
Unfortunately you can't get them now, Xiaomi stopped producing them and its successor (Mi 4a, often rebranded as 3g v2) is not as good and you have either to rely on a software vulnerability to flash it or have to open it up since it doesn't have USB.
What is the recommendation these days?
