I recently bought the Archer C7 for my parents and hardware version 5 was delivered. Given its performance I decided to buy one myself as well, however the shop delivered a version 4.0. I went to the shop to replace it for the V5 model but they now sell TP-Link Archer A7 only.
Question: from a OPENWRT point of view, is the Archer C7 v4 model okay or should I really look for a V5 model?
I am not sure what to do since both support 18.06.2, https://openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/archer-c5-c7-wdr7500, so perhaps the V4 model is fine but hoping you can advise me?
Seems like the C7 is replaced by the A7, and would you recommend me to return it to the shop and buy a A7? Since last December the A7 seems to support OPENWRT, Support for Archer A7
