What's your favourite cheap LEDE/OpenWrt device?

A post was split to a new topic: Which device to buy

Compared to the Pi 4, this chip seems to support AES, which I believe its an issue for OpenWRT if is missing.


How can we get support for this chip and this device?

At that price, donating a couple is feasible.

Ive just setup a TP-link Archer A7 to my brother, seems like a cheap AP/router to me. I really liked that I could make a physical antenna port by myself so that he can use his old 2,4 GHz antenna :grinning: Just had to buy an RP-SMA to uFL 20 cm cable and attach it to the "motherboard" and attach it to the case after using a small saw for plastic :ok_hand:

Next time I need a cheap AP/router device I will probably buy a TP-link Archer C7 due to the fact that it is cheaper and it has 2 USB-ports :thinking:
