I'm looking for a new router and currently have in mind either the GL.inet B1300 (Convexa-B) and GL.inet MT1300 (Beryl). What I really want is a small (physically) router with dual band wifi including 2x2 5ghz and gigabit/usb, and I may end up getting two or more and only doing actual routing with one.
The B1300 has an ipq4028 platform and the MT1300 has the MT7621A / MT7615 platform.
My question is, which of these two is likely to have a better future with openwrt mainline? As I can gather now, MT76 open source drivers have unreliable wifi right now, but people seem to think mt76 is more open and has more cooperation from the vendor, so maybe it'll be better long term? The ipq4028 seems to be part of the same family as the quite popular ipq4018, but I don't have a good sense of how well regarded the open source wifi drivers are in Openwrt, I just have a sense that qualcomm may be less regarded as open source players.
