mt7921 wouldn't be a bad wireless option at all, but I don't think it supports DBDC (well, only 2 antennas, so 'no'), meaning you'd better skip that for the cheaper wired-only model and add a decent OpenWrt support AP. It's a bit unclear how far towards 2.5 GBit/s the RK3568 can really go (I've seen measurements around 1.7+ GBit/s) - and even less how far into those value it might be able to do sqm/ cake, but it's certainly an interesting device.

I now this Router,
its a hinlink H68K.

I do not now what that "LINKSTAR" Label ist for. If you sell a Hinlink Router than call it Hinlink.
Now its more difficult to find the right information!
It looks like that seeed studio guys and girls are very special.

It is possible to buy the Router on:

-> this is for all people who do not have the "LINKSTAR" Brand on the Top of the box.

It looks like they take openwrt and write the code by themselves:
