Are there differences in drivers or hardware? They seem to be the saem.
Isn't the RT3200 unobtainiumware ?
I'd go for the 206, because of the 2.5GbE uplink port, easy flash and recovery.
I would wait for Filogic 830 devices since those are the next generation
After that, there would be something even newer coming, you could wait for...
It's the best way of shopping, since you never actually buy anything.
(wife approval factor)
The only thing lacking in wax206 is a USB port. You never know when you might require an NFS or Samba server on the router.
At least I have got rt3200 available in my country, but the price is too high
Nope, you don't have to wait: https://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/targets/mediatek/filogic/
we have to wait, filogic 880 is coming
Not what the OP asked but on the topic of filogic and more powerful chipsets, the Redmi AX6000 is much faster than either of those. A bit of a task to get OpenWRT on it but it is well documented.
You're the one who said wait, not me...
No USB so no go.
