im new, i tried already some routers for example ASUS AC67U Mesh or currently Netgear ORBI RBK752 WIFI 6
im not really happy and im sure because of my demand.
thats why i found openWRT because i think the most problems i have is software limitation from the stockfirmware.
Im Looking for an affordable router with following specs:
- WIFI 6/Master and WIFI 6 Repeater/Node connection via Ethernet/Backhaul.
- API/Ssh possibility? I want a list of all connected mac addresses
- VPN Server AND Client (ovpn) OpenVpn
- Guest WLAN within the whole MESH Network and complete seperated from my local net
If this not works possibility to seperate 1 LANPort as GUEST / tagged vlan, i could use an old/seperate router as guest network.
And the best all if everthing works in an STABLE WIFI6 Mesh
I dont know if openwrt can handle this or the current hardware on the market.
I hope you pro guys can give me some advices or hints.
if there hardware with all that functions i would spend up to 500, dont know if this enough
or i stay with wifi4 and mabe some open routers from aliexpress or xiaomi ?
Thank you guys.
