I'm looking for a router that supports OpenWRT and is priced around 50 euros. It should be available in the Netherlands and have an easy flashing process that doesn't require any hardware flashers.
My use case is to have this router in a separate room to extend my network (connected over WAN with the ISP modem/router). I primarily use my PC for gaming and my phone for streaming videos in 1080p. Our bandwidth is 100Mbps down and 10Mbps up.
If anyone has any recommendations for a router that can handle this kind of usage without breaking the bank, I would appreciate your suggestions. Thank you in advance!
I personally haven't used openwrt yet but a PR with support for the d link one just got merged so I could indeed flash that one and install the package but couldn't i also just build my own image using the provided instructions merging the PR into main?
If you want to connect wirelessly to your router, then I suggest to look out for the Linksys MR8300. It has two radios for 5GHz, so you can use one to connect to the router and the other as an AP. I bought mine when it was on sale on Amazon.de for about € 55.
I successfully made a build the other day which was pretty easy just following the instructions / pr commit msg, managed to get the router for 40 euro as I got a couple discounts which is a pretty good deal imo
so I just got the router and flashed the firmware as instructed in the pr
Web UI Recovery method:
Unplug the router
Plug in and hold reset button 5~10 secs
Set your computer IP address manually to 192.168.1.x / 255.255.255.0
Flash image with web browser to 192.168.1.1
after flashing the factory image I build it says flashing successful after which it instantly reloads the webpage, the router doesn't appear to automatically restart and turning it off and on / trying the reset button doesn't change the fact that it keeps displaying the web recovery ui
