I would like to replace a Google Home mesh network with an open source OpenWrt alternative.
I am having difficulty finding information on which devices support Mesh (802.11s). The table here doesn't list mesh support information: https://openwrt.org/toh/views/toh_available_16128
This article 802.11s based wireless mesh network describes a commands to run to see if the hardware supports mesh:
iw list | grep "Supported interface modes" -A 9
however I can't run this command if I don't have the hardware. It also states:
Support for 802.11s (type mesh) depends on wireless driver
Again, not too helpful without the hardware.
Are there any guides or resources where I can find device device support for 802.11s to make a purchasing decision? Ideally, for the mesh nodes I would like small devices similar to the Google Home wifi pucks.
I also started reading several devices I could purchase easily online however the individual device pages I looked at did not mention any mesh support either.
