Does Netgear WAX202-100EUS support openwrt? I am confused for "100EUS". is it ok to buy? Thanks in advance.
That is internal to Netgear. Don't bother. I have never understood what it means (100 but 1Gbits LAN). EUS may be a short for Europe/USA?
Finally the WAX206 is newer and cheaper. Better choice than.
I believe the 100EUS is an indication regarding geography.
But it works fine, I have one running on latest snapshot and works perfectly.
There even a device page in the ToH by the way.
All of mine purchased were WAX202B on the box printing and WAX202B-100NAS on the box's label - worked fine too. Purchased in the US from a US retailer.
Thank you all very much for your valuable feedback.
So there are minimum two types of the WAX202 then:
-100NAS, NA stands for North America maybe?
-100EUS, EU for European Union
What's the S then, the plural?
To my knowledge luckily there are all supported by Openwrt
Purely as an access point I think the WAX202 is a great device, especially as it has wifi 6/AX on both radios whereas the WAX206 only has wifi 6/AX on the 5GHz radio.
But other than that the WAX206 is a more capable piece of hardware, especially if you want to deploy as a router. The SoC is much faster, it has more flash memory, 2.5Gbit connection and one more network port.
On amazon.fr the WAX206 is cheaper than the WAX202. I don't know about your local retailer. If you have the choice, go on with the WAX206.
My guess is that the hardware is the same, but the OEM software isn't (see Netgear download site). The difference may lie in wifi regulations. From an OpenWrt point of view, as long as the hardware is the same, it runs. All regulations are embedded.
Amazon JP the same, 206 is cheaper. I don't really care about the 2.4GHz AX support, I will be using 2.4GHz only for my IoTs so 802.11n is good enough.
But in some old posts I saw quite some people complained the 202 about the signal coverage, even with a room between router/client the transmission speed dropping a lot, while 206 is doing better on this.
My 206 bought in Japan has "100JPS" suffix
maybe S for software. JaPan Software.
