I need new Wifi routers. I do not like proprietary software / hardware.
I did not find a thread for the current most freedom respecting hardware.
On the Hardware Table I could not select by binary blobs yes/no and free hardware designs.
I found thinkpenguin but do not know if this is the best choice today.
Performance and price are not issues for me. I just need a typical Wifi router for my house at home with WAN for the cable modem, a few LAN Ports (100 Mbps is enough), and good Wifi range. My old WRT54GL did the job nicely. Important is a very long lifetime / support by OpenWrt, robustness, security and low power consumption. If needed I can build / solder / hack it, but I would prefer to buy it ready to go.
Ideally I want my money go to an ethical hardware supplier that supports the free software / hardware movement.
The number of available routers is overwhelming for me because I am no router expert, that is why I ask for help here. Thank you.
