At the moment I use a very old TP-Link TL-WR1043ND v 1.8 for IoT-devices, Since a few days it works fine, but the TL-WR1043ND was replaced because the speed was very unstable. For IoT.devices speed is not so important, so the old router could be a solution.
Now I discovered, that I can run a FHEM-server with openwrt.
My question is, if this old TL-WR1043ND is strong enough for FHEM? The TL-WR1043ND has 32MB, AFAIR FHEM needs 7-8MB
If you think the TL-WR1043ND is to weak, what could be a solution? I want a router with Atheros chipset to stay compatible with my other routers.
At the moment I have:
1 Fritzbox 7390 (internet gateway)
1 Netgear R7800 (as wds-master)
1 TP-Link Archer C7 (connected via cable to cellar)
1 TP-Link Archer C7 (wireless bridge in 1st floor)
1 TL-WR1043ND v1.8 for IoT (4 unused)
1 Netgear R7800 is waiting to be sent back. It was a bargain, so I am waiting for your opinion, if I should keep it for IoT with server tasks like FHEM.
Another choice could be to buy another Archer C7. Unfotunately it is a lot more expensive now, than I paid for my 2 others.
