i spent some frustrating days trying to get mesh networking running on WRT1200AC devices. But it looks like the Marvell driver just doesn‘t support it.
Now I am searching for another device which can handle it well, has 5GHz and 2.4 GHz, one or more Gigabit ports. I do not intend to run many other services like adblock or openVPN, so the CPU should be able to handle the traffic but doesn‘t need to be a monster. My internet connection is 400MBit, maybe more in the future and I also want some performance when it comes to wireless performance (backups etc).
It‘s for home use, so budget is relevant (I need to buy 3 or 4).
Please let me know if I should consider further requirements or should give more information.
Hm, I cannot even find it in the hardware database of openwrt, nothing named like mr24.
And, I wouldn‘t want to run anything anything with original Cisco firmware, based on the regular findings of backdoors and vulnerabilities of this brand - but that‘s another topic and a reason I am looking at openWRT.
