I've used the R7800 previously at home, and am quite satisfied with it. I'm currently looking for a different router that I can tinker with. I'll be using it mainly for local NAS usage (no nas usage from internet), and ~400Mbit up/down usage.
Would R7800 be the way to go, or should I get something else?
Should I also look at using the DFRobot cm4 thing as a router and get a cheap ap for wifi?
Preferably looking for router + AP in one, but I'm open to suggestions about router + AP in different devices combos too. If you have both, please do suggest both, thanks!
I saw you are looking forward to a NAS solution. I am actually using the above ODYSSEY - X86J4125 running as a NAS itself along with OpenWrt also inside. Thanks to the m.2 ports and the SATA ports onboard.
Also, the CM4 carrier board above can work in AP mode. You just need to connect an antenna to the CM4 module to make it work.
Good point. I was looking for a device that openwrt could fully support, and something that doesn't break the bank. I'm currently exploring, so didn't specify hard requirements. But my expectations are,
Has 2.4/5Ghz, and can do close to a Gigabit in Lan (cable/wifi)
Ideally under 200$
Is actively supported by openwrt, with almost full hardware support
Could you recommend both? My NAS usage isn't extreme, I use it as a backup drive, possibly attached to a pi 4. As long as the ports and wifi can do their bidding, I'm fine, just want to make sure I use the hardware well
For wifi, microtik devices seem to be best supported, is that right?
