What happened to the Belkin RT3200?

Can't find it anywhere to buy it (UK). Is there a similar or better device that is easy to flash? Just need a device that is a good dumb AP which supports 802.11r and 802.11s.

Did you try ebay?

Netgear wax206?

this, especially if you're looking for easy flashing.

Netgear WAX206 is £80 from Scan including free delivery, pretty much a Belkin RT3200 with a 2.5gig wan port.

Much easier to flash than the Belkin.

Thank you for the suggestions. Hopefully we will have a good triband one day (didnt ask for that because I know how difficult they are to come across with full OpenWRT support)

Xiaomi Redmi AX6000 if you want full 802.11ax on both bands and a faster chip. Usually a little under $100USD


if AX isn't a must, there's plenty of triple radio devices around ...

Why should ax be a must at this time when it's still slower than ac in real world with mt76?

because OP asked about the RT3200 ?

you probably have to go to AC2600 to be able to achieve AX speed on AC,
AFAIK there are no AC2600 triple radio devices around.

As long as TCP transmission speeds over 11ax MT7915 links are worse than in 11ac mode the 11ax capability does not matter much.

I'm seeing ~750 MBit/s over mt7915DBDC (DAP-X1860/ master) with Intel ax200, -ax210 and mt7921au clients.

I see lower performance with MT7915 with my Intel ax201 station in 11ax mode than in 11ac mode: Linksys E8450 11ac faster than 11ax with 23.05-SNAPSHOT

option he_su_beamformee '1'
option he_bss_color '8'

is set.

This is off-topic. Please post over there in the other thread.

From what I read this applies to WAX206 as well: 802.11ax worse than 802.11ac with mt76 driver?

But, yes, MT7622 and MT7915 devices may be a good choice for an 11ac access point. For the topic here.
