Looking at getting one of these: Linksys WRT32X or TP-Link C2600. I know the TPLink uses Atheros and Linksys uses Marvell and don't expect MU-MIMO from either.
I'm planning on using it as a plain Access Point (though it may become a main router) so for now I need the best range/signal I can get and support for a Guest SSID on its own VLAN (the VLANs and security are handled by a wired router for now).
I currently have an Asus RT-AC68U running DD-WRT, not sure whether either of the above can do better.
I realize there may be cheaper alternatives, but I kinda like the looks of these routers which is important to swimbo.
Which one is better suited for OpenWRT? Does Atheros work better than Marvell?
