I am thinking of replacing my old, non-OpenWrt compatible wifi AP and I want to use an OpenWrt enabled one. For this reason, I was searching for all AP that available in my country and support OpenWrt and are WiFi-6 capable.
The TP-Link seems to be better supported, but it's powered only through PoE which is a problem for me. The ZyXEL was even mentioned to an older post, seems to work but no real information if/what is supported.
So I am a bit confused, since I'm quite new to OpenWrt. Of course, if you have more suggestions, please do so.
My real need is actually VLANs, since I want to separate the IoT devices from the rest of my personal items (phone, laptop etc).
would be what's known about rhe NWA50AX, based on the hardware I can't really imagine what wouldn't be supported - seems to be pretty bog standard mt8721a+mt7915 (for both, actually). mediatek designs are usually rather uniform in nature, which means they're relatively easy to support - without too many pitfalls, at worst some LEDs won't necessarily do what they say or some MAC addresses might be switched.
