I'm looking for a cheap (max. 30 Euros) OpenWRT device with
2.4 and 5 Ghz Wifi
5 Gigabit Ethernet Ports
at least 8 MB Flash (16 MB would be better) and 64 MB RAM
supported by a stable OpenWRT version
available in Germany
doesn't have to be a new device, used ones or EOL are also okay
low energy consumption
Until now. I found the TP-Link Archer C2 v3 (AC900), but it seems to have slow wifi performance (
Support for TP-Link Archer C2 v3).
Do you have any further suggestions? Thanks!
Some inspiration (in case you havn't seen it yet):
What's your favourite cheap LEDE/OpenWrt device?
What about TP-Link Archer C7? You can buy it second hand on Kleinanzeigen for around 30 EUR+delivery.
Archer C7 are quite nice, I have 4 of them, running 18.06 and didn't try 19.07. But maybe a MikroTik RB760iGS is interesting, probably soon stable, now rc. See
RB760iGS (hEX S) stable? Personally I try to separate Wifi und LAN now in 2 boxes for secutrity reasons, but I am at the beginning of my thoughts.
My Archer C7 v2 runs 19.07.3 and is quite stable.
I am also on the way to separate AP and router functionality. Just found RE450 for AP, but I do not want to hijack the topic.
Maybe this discussion helps for your decision:
As a totally anecdotal recommend, I just switched to a VLAN setup using Belkin AX3200 and it worked out great. I was using some Ubiquiti devices and the internal switch would strip the 802.1q headers one way and not the other. I hacked it together but it was ugly. The AX3200 worked exactly like I needed.
If you need a wireless bridge, I recommend an Atheros chip, couldn't get it work with other chips a few years ago.
