Im a new user this forum and OpenWrt in general. My only contact with this firmware was a couple of years ago with installing it a old router that i found in my basement, was i think a non-official version that didn't work well and I was a bit lost.
Fast forward a couple of years later and here I am, in a dorm with a WIFI who is restricted and i cant see other device in the network because of security reasons (obviously) but i cant play in LAN with my friends or access the rest of my devices in the network, and that suck.
That is why im looking for a cheap router (Im an IT student and don't have much money) that i can connect to the WiFi dorm with the 5G band and connect my devices to in the 2.4G band as I don't need a lot of range and there is no interference with other WiFi.
I want also learn a lot about OpenWrt as I am still a bit lost, Linux is not a problem since Im relatively familiar with it and I am a fast learner.
I am based in EU more accurately in Spain as this is a deal-breaker to some of the routers that i saw in the forum.
