What wifi router support dual band detachable antenna, minimum 16mb of storage, 2 USB, enough for a VPN or two, WAN/LAN ports
with good hardware, good support with openwrt and if possible not as ugly as the fritzbox
What can you suggest me ?
With removable antennas, be aware that in many cases the external antennas are only one band, with internal antennas for the other band.
Depending on your budget, I'd also consider an x86 box as a router, one or more APs (either APs, or inexpensive all-in-one wireless routers configured as "dumb APs"), and a managed switch.
Interesting ones include the NEXX 3020H/F/AD (8 MB Flash / 64 MB DDR / MT7620N / ~15 USD), the A5-v11 (4 MB Flash / 32 MB RAM / RT5350F / ~7-9 USD), Onion Omega2 (16/32 MB Flash / 64/128 MB RAM / MT7688 / 5/9 USD + ~5 USD shipping).
There is a thread for cheap devices. So I decided to have one for better devices too.
My starting points are TP-Link Archer C7 and C2600. Do you know any other wireless gateways with plenty of RAM (64 MB minimum), enough flash (8 MB in this case, since you can always extroot) and plenty of processing power?
I could also ask this like: If you were about to buy an Archer C2600, what would you rather buy, if you wanted a better, more powerful and better supported device?
This means that g…
Play around yourself with the USB port filter (filter "2x" is not "minimum 2" but rather "=2").
Why the Archer C2600 is not listed ? however it seem to be supported
At least from my reading of the posts here, the C2600 isn't as popular as the high-end Linksys WRT3200ACM, WRT32x, or Zyxel NBG6817 units.
If I were looking for an all-in-one wireless router, those would be on my short list.
the Linksys WRT1200AC have 2 USB port right ? and dual band detachable antenna ??
and, as the FCC is impacted by the shutdown,
If those are dual-band antennas, I don't have more information than what is there.
